NBC will launch its acquired Web drama "Quarterlife" on Feb. 18, following the premiere of the new reality series "Baby Borrowers."

The drama about six 20-somethings will air in the Monday 9 p.m. time slot, replacing "Deal or No Deal." It will be followed by "Medium" at 10 p.m.

Additionally, "Quarterlife," from Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, will also be streamed on NBC.com.

"The first time Ed and Marshall showed me 'Quarterlife,' I knew it was something special and I personally could not stop watching it," NBC's programming chief Ben Silverman said. "It was also a great opportunity to explore a new paradigm."

The eight-episode of "Quarterlife" are comprised of the 36 eight-minute episodes of the Web series, which are running on MySpace, quarterlife.com and a few other sites.
