My So-Called Life Wiki

My So-Called Life is an American television series which originally aired on ABC from August 25, 1994, to January 26, 1995. It was created by Winnie Holzman and produced by Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz. It was distributed by The Bedford Falls Company with ABC Productions. The genre is "teen drama".

The setting is Three Rivers, a fictional suburb somewhere near Pittsburgh, PA, "My So-Called Life" (a.k.a. MSCL) centers on Angela Chase, an intelligent, articulate 15-year-old sophomore at Liberty High School. The story begins at a crucial turning point in Angela's so-called life -- the onset of adolescence, appropriately accompanied by the angst-ridden search for identity and the requisite teenage rebellion against family, old friends, and benign authority figures. All signaled by Angela's changing her hair color from blonde to crimson glow.
