Tuesday: ‘quarterlife’

[IMG:L]quarterlife — 10/9c on NBC

Could we be looking at twentysomething for the 21st century?

Don’t be too surprised if that’s the case: quarterlife was created by Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, who also created thirtysomething (in addition to My So-Called Life), and, well, both shows have the whole lowercase-title thing goin’ on.

NBC, for one, would be ecstatic to see quarterlife strike a thirtysomething-type chord, following its series premiere tonight.

The drama, which gained considerable buzz after episodes were shown on the Internet, centers on six twentysomething artists coming of age during the Blog Generation.

Those six stars are Kevin Christy, Scott Michael Foster, Michelle Lombardo, Maite SchwartzBitsie Tulloch and David Walton, all of whose names will be head-scratchers to anyone who tunes in tonight, but such a small-scale show wouldn’t work any other way.

The debut episode is fittingly Web-centric: Dylan’s (Tulloch) blog on social-networking site Quarterlife reveals secrets about her friends, including Lisa’s (Schwartz) fears and Jed’s (Foster) feelings for Debra (Lombardo).

In other words, get ready for some serious melodrama–digital-age style!
