Two decades later, their lives intersect once again, giving them the uncommon opportunity to learn how everyone turned out and to rebuild old friendships. THE CLASS is produced by craneklarik productions in association with Warner Bros. Television

"Introducing over 40 million Classmates.com subscribers to THE CLASS gives CBS a terrific marketing opportunity," said George Schweitzer, President of the CBS Marketing Group. "Our partnership with Classmates.com is the perfect fit, since the series is all about reconnecting."

Mark Goldston, Chairman of United Online, Inc., owner of Classmates.com, said, 'THE CLASS' uncorks memories of friends we have known and reminds us that it is never too late to reconnect to enjoy a second chance at friendship or love. This is more than an unprecedented opportunity for people to connect and interact with characters of a network TV show. 'The Class' is an inspiration for all of us to reconnect with people we have known to enjoy them again in our lives today and tomorrow."
