Life As We Know It (ABC 2004-2005, Sean Faris, Jon Foster)

From the producers of the critically-acclaimed series ‘Freaks and Geeks,’ Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, and the former co-chairman of the ABC Entertainment Television Group, Stuart Bloomberg, comes a one-hour drama series based on British author Melvin Burgess’ breakthrough novel, Doing It. ‘life as we know it’ defines the spirit of life through the eyes of Dino Whitman, Jonathan Fields and Ben Connor, three hormone-charged teenage boys on the brink of becoming young men.

This coming-of-age story is not just about sex – which does dominate their every thought – girlfriends and sports, but about how the pressures of growing up affect their attitudes toward the things and people they love, and how these experiences with their families, friends, coaches and teachers shape them into men.
