Description
An entertainment journalist examines how seven revolutionary teen shows--The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, My So-Called Life, Dawson's Creek, Freaks and Geeks, The O.C., Friday Night Lights, and Glee--transformed television and our culture.
Description
Glassman believes that revolutionary teen shows shaped the course of modern television and the pop cultural landscape forever. These hormone-soaked shows, happening inside the fictional hallways of high schools across America, redefined comedy and pushed genre boundraries. Here Glassman goes behind the scenes of seven of the most culturally significant series of the last three decades, showing how they launched the careers of superstars, took young people seriously-- and remained firmly entrenched in our culture long after they finished airing. -- adapted from jacket
