My Generation is a new series coming to ABC this fall. And this one has piqued my interest. I wonder what the theme song could be? My-my-my generation…
Michael David Stahl, Kelli Garner and Jamie King are three of the main cast members of My Generation. The series is not a reality TV show, but it is based on a documentary crew that follows teens who attend Greenbelt High School in Austin, Texas. But the twist to make the series more interesting is that the crew also visits these people ten years later. While we’ve seen some documentary type shows (The Office, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family) it’s important to note that they’re usually good, and I’d certainly rather have an influx of these than more reality TV shows.
Based upon the promo, this series is not at all a fluff piece. The writing will reflect what honestly could happen to people growing up in the world in these past ten years, and how world events influenced them. If you ever were a fan of the series Reunion, it’s only sort of like that. But seriously, My Generation looks amazing to me and I know that I’ll be watching.
My Generation Synopsis: What a difference ten years can make. In 2000, a documentary crew follows a disparate group of high schoolers from Greenbelt High School in Austin, TX as they prepare for graduation, then revisits these former classmates ten years later as they return home to rediscover that just because they’re not where they planned doesn’t mean they’re not right where they need to be.
These students couldn’t wait to graduate and head out into the real world. But the world they were entering got very real very fast. As these classmates return home to revisit their old hopes for their future, they’ll discover that, even if you don’t get exactly what you thought you wanted out of life, it’s not too late to get what you need.
