Life After (TV) High School

Date: Sunday, 6/11

High school settings have been a staple of popular TV for decades, but lately these “teenage dramas” are disappearing. With many characters graduating, and new series being developed or revamped to focus on the college, why has television abandoned these young formative years? Creators and showrunners who are immersed in the world discuss the NA (“new adult”) genre, why it has taken the place of YA, and the fun (yet challenging) parts of storytelling from this new (older) age bracket.

Panelists: Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), Rebecca Serle (Famous in Love), Amanda Lasher (Sweet/Vicious)
