Degrassi scribe takes on The Best Years
Aaron Martin, head writer for Degrassi: The Next Generation, has created and will executive produce a new series about college life for The N called The Best Years. An appropriate title if I do say so myself, because I think for many of us college was a really great time. I know when it came time for me to graduate they had to drag me kicking and screaming off the campus: "No! I still have so much to learn! So many items I've yet to turn into a bong!"
The drama focuses on freshman Samantha Best, a product of the foster care system who looks forward to a new start at Charles University in Massachusetts. The cast of both Canadian and American actors includes a rich socialite from the Midwest, a star basketball player and a famous child actor who leaves Hollywood to attend the university. Thirteen episodes are set to air next summer.
