SAG actors get lease on 'Quarterlife'


The Web-based series "Quarterlife," to debut Nov. 11 on, will use SAG actors, guild officials said.

Created by producers Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, "Quarterlife" "is one of the best recent examples of a network-quality series made for the Internet," SAG said Friday.

"The production also publicly heralds Screen Actors Guild's commitment to one-on-one outreach to producers and high-profile SAG members who are actively producing new-media content," officials added.

Herskovitz and Zwick, have produced TV shows including "thirtysomething," "My So-Called Life" and others. Their "Quarterlife" series will tell the story of six "creative" twentysomethings.

"This is another sign that the Internet is maturing into a productive distribution channel for professionally produced content," SAG national exec director Doug Allen said.
