Quarterlife, first internet only TV show

Faced with Facebook’s exponential growth, MySpace hopes to keep its users onside with what it says is the first network-quality television series produced directly for the internet. The social network announced today it had secured the exclusive international distribution rights for Quarterlife, a new series from Emmy award-winning producers Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick. Quarterlife, which will premier in seven languages on MySpace’s global sites on November 11, delves into the lives of six people in their 20s and charts their “coming of age as a part of the digital generation”. The show was unashamedly written to appeal to today’s tech-savvy youth – the central character, a young woman named Dylan, is a blogger whose video diary divulges a few too many of her friends’ closest secrets.

It purports to be a “truthful depiction of the way young people speak, work, think, love, argue and express themselves”. To that end, Herskovitz and Zwick – the force behind My So-Called Life, thirtysomething, Legends of the Fall and Blood Diamond – will invite their audience to participate in the ongoing development of the series “through writing and video submissions”. There will be 36 episodes in total and the producers plan to create a mini social network around the show through a website, quarterlife.com. It will also have its own profile page on MySpace, which MySpace says will include bonus content such as character profiles, behind-the-scenes video footage and storyline secrets. Herskovitz and Zwick said the fact Quarterlife was an independent project meant they had full “creative autonomy”, which isn’t always possible when producing shows for traditional TV networks. Is this the beginning of TV 2.0?

    A show about a girl blogging about her friends?

    I know how they came up with this idea… they sent a bunch of business men aged 35-50 into a room with the instructions to come up with something “hip” for “kidz”.

    glad some others pointed out Sanctuary, because I was about to. Guess Martin spoke out of place and needs to edit.

    The_Doctor: Im a dad, and I feel that your destroying our social abilities. Its people like you that need to get off the computer and get some fresh air.

    I’m not after a heated debate over this I just feel I need to vent my anger towards dim witted people that think sites like myspace and facebook are to blame for their children’s bad upbringing.. go on.. I dare you blame ID’s Doom why don’t you.

    things that I predict will be the downfall of this series:
    -content will be delivered in crippled, low resolution WMV or some other proprietary shit format that’s not xvid/264
    -mainly will be viewed in flash-based player: shit quality, offers only a ‘windows or mac’ download which is gay BS
    -users will have to register a my-spaces account to view the show
    -it will be brain-dead mtv like the hills
    -something else like it won’t use torrents to distribute which would make the most sense to do

    >>users will have to register a my-spaces account to view the show

    sorry, mr.x but that sounds like bullshit, if it’s hosted on youtube, it’s open to everyone.

    no show in the world would be worth a myspace registration to me. not even hardcore porn, hehe.

    And if it’s hosted at youtube, which I somehow doubt – how on earth can anybody be expected to watch a whole show on that tiny video-window? s:
    10-minute sketches.. sure, but full-length episodes? C’mon..

    Oh, and you’ve been out of the loop a long time ago my friend, “TV 2.0″ started way before this.

    Alpha, Ok, you want to dare me… I’ve been gaming for over 20 years starting with the first Doom, I use to own a rack in the Chicago IBX just for Counter-Strike and Medal of Honor servers. I have no issues at all with my kid cruising around with an MP-90 or camping around with a sweet sniper rifle, as long as they at least go outside and do play, minus the MP-90, or any form of firearm, plasma rifle, nailgun, etc.

    The issue is I know people at work that actually set their alarms to go off every hour at night to check for new friend requests and myspace messages. I don’t want my kid playing the “I have more on-line friends that I really don’t know than you” game. If my kid wants an online presence, they can have their own dedicated server and install wordpress themselves. So this has nothing to do with technology destroying their social skills, it is when their entire social knowledge and friends circle is purely based on myspace, and it happens a lot. All I am getting to, is that the site is highly addictive, and really not too informative.

    So, no heated debate here, you opinion, my opinion. No one wins.
