Daniella Alonso
If you?re a network executive or a TV producer and you?re looking for dramatic concepts that could reach the widest possible audiences, you might consider common touchstones that bring people together.


So immediately rule out religion and politics.

What does that leave?

High school.

In ABC?s ensemble drama ?My Generation,? the producers have taken the documentary format that has worked so well for sitcoms such as ?The Office? and ?Modern Family? and adapted it to the hour-long form. The conceit at work here is that a documentary filmmaker interviewed a group of high school graduates way back in 2000 ? !! ? about their hopes and dreams and is catching up with them and recording their lives as they really turned out in 2010.

Michael Stahl-Dav
As with your life or mine, the results are neither black or white but messy piles of grey.

Joining me today to talk about the show, which airs Thursdays at 8 p.m., are Daniella Alonso, who plays DC lawyer ?Brenda Serrano,? and Michael David-Stahl, a Hawaii-based surf bum who just discovered he has a 9-year-old son.
