NOTE: This is an idea i've been having for a while now after having a conversation with a friend about how there isn't really a drama show out there about young middle class people who are more or less failing at there dreams which is a very real common thing, T.V shows set us up to believe that we can reach for the stars and succeed, most shows are about kids becoming famous, trying to be famous. Though I'll admit there are a few shows out there about the extreme opposite.
I wanted to show that it's okay to dream and have those dreams come crashing down around you and it doesn't mean your failing at life it just means your growing up. Because the truth is life rarely works out the way we thought it would when we were in high school, and at it's core I think that's what I want this show to be all about.
