“My Generation,” a show created by 1974 Hobart grad Warren Littlefield’s production company, the Littlefield Company, has been picked up by ABC Studios for the fall.
Based on the Swedish series “Blomstertid” (“On God’s Highway”), “My Generation” is a mockumentary-style show, centered on a group of 20-somethings, with flashbacks to their lives as high school seniors. Littlefield is an executive producer.
This winter several HWS students got a preview of the pilot script, prior to the Los Angeles Experience Program, organized by the Department of Media and Society and the Salisbury Center for Career Services, so that they could discuss with Littlefield and his employees the process of developing a television show, including revisions to the script and pitching to networks.
A Daily Update story in February featured Littlefield’s career and the pilot for the show, under the working title, “Generation Y.” [ http://www2.hws.edu/article-id-12804 ]
