'quarterlife' the Groundbreaking Internet Series from Emmy Award-Winning Writer/Producer Team Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick Will be Offered on the iTunes Store Beginning February 26

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25 -- Hour-long episodes of "quarterlife," the Internet series from Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, the EMMY award- winning creative team behind "My So-Called Life," "thirtysomething," "Legends of the Fall," and "Blood Diamond," will now be offered for purchase and download on the iTunes(R) Store (http://www.itunes.com). The show will be available on the same day as its premiere on NBC on February 26, and subsequent episodes will be available on the iTunes Store the day of broadcast. Individual hour- long episodes of the hugely successful series will be available for purchase for $1.99 and the full season, which includes six episodes, will be available for purchase for $9.99. Also available exclusively to iTunes customers is a free, behind-the-scenes bonus "featurette" that includes interviews with the series creators and "quarterlife" cast.

"It's exciting to bring 'quarterlife' to iTunes," said Marshall Herskovitz, co-creator of the series. "We're overwhelmed with the enthusiasm the show has received to date and we're thrilled to give fans another opportunity to watch the show with iTunes, and it's exciting that viewers can take their favorite episodes with them wherever they go on their iPod or iPhone."

"quarterlife" marks the first time that an independent project of this kind has been owned and controlled by its creators -- as well as the first occasion that an Internet series has been created alongside a social network, quarterlife.com (http://www.quarterlife.com). "quarterlife" will air as an hour-long drama series on NBC beginning on Tuesday, February 26 at 10:00 p.m. ET, which will be the first time a major TV network broadcasts an Internet series. After the premiere, the show will move to its regular time slot on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET, beginning on March 2, and will continue on NBC for five weeks.

Known for their incisive portrayals of relationships and experience during life's key passages, "quarterlife" takes on the crucial years between 20 and 30, when so many of life's important decisions are made. "quarterlife" tells the ongoing stories of six creative people in their twenties. As with Herskovitz and Zwick's earlier series, at the center of "quarterlife" is a commitment to realism, and the recognition of universal human themes through the truthful depiction of the way young people speak, work, think, love, argue, and just have fun.

The cast stars Bitsie Tulloch as Dylan ("Lonelygirl15," "Lost," "The West Wing"), Maite Schwartz as Lisa ("Medium," "Dexter," "House of Grimm"), Scott Michael Foster as Jed ("Greek," "The Horrible Flowers"), David Walton as Danny ("Heist," "Cracking Up"), Michelle Lombardo as Debra ("Click," "Entourage," "October Road"), Kevin Christy as Andy ("Love Don't Cost a Thing"), and Barret Swatek as Brittany ("Seventh Heaven," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin").

Starting with Dylan (Tulloch), a young woman whose overly truthful video blog (on quarterlife.com of course) spills the closest secrets of her friends, the show's characters - filmmakers Danny (Walton) and Jed (Foster), actress- bartender Lisa (Schwartz), geek-extraordinaire Andy (Christy), and still-tied- to-her-parents Debra (Lombardo) -- chart the sometimes excruciating, sometimes comic, often emotional experiences that comprise coming of age in the 21st century.

"quarterlife" initially launched on MyspaceTV.com and on quarterlife.com in November 2007. quarterlife.com is home to an accompanying social network devoted to facilitating the same coming of age as the series.
