The N's Degrassi: The Next Generation, winner of both a Television Critics Association Award and a Teen Choice Summer Series Award, is a fictional, dramatic series that tackles tough issues in a realistic way. Degrassi introduces a new generation of kids going through the trials and tribulations of adolescence in the 21st century at the newly refurbished Degrassi Community School. The series delves into a variety of topics including: eating disorders, teen pregnancy, religion and cheating. In its sixth season, Degrassi continues to be The N's highest-rated program. The season-six premieres in fourth quarter 2006 averaged more than 400,000 total viewers, and the show remains the only breakout hit in digital cable.

South of Nowhere, The N's second highest-rated series behind Degrassi, is a fictional story about a contemporary American family and their multi-faceted journey of self-discovery. Set in Los Angeles, the series chronicles the five members of the Carlin family as they try to define themselves and make sense of their lives while they undergo a huge transition -- moving from a small town in Ohio to the big city of Los Angeles. The series recently garnered its highest-rated telecast ever with the premiere of season two on November 17, earning a 2.2 teen rating in its 8:30 p.m. (ET) time period. Season-to-date, South of Nowhere delivers more female teens during its Friday 8:30 p.m. (ET) play than any other ad-supported cable network.

Beyond the Break is an intense dramatic series combining surf and sun as it drops in on the competitive world of professional surfing. Four passionate women with diverse backgrounds will pursue their dreams of becoming professional surfers. But in order to remain afloat, each of them must overcome issues to capture surf stardom from WaveSync, a struggling surf company eager to reinvigorate itself.
