Marshall Herskovitz & Edward Zwick, screenwriters, interview


"The voice of (Quarterlife) is Dylan (Bitsie Tulloch), who's a blogger. But isn't that a variation on how Felicity records her thoughts into a tape recorder or Carrie Bradshaw writes about her life in a column?

Zwick: There's a convention of drama which has to do with voice-over. I think we might have been early with it in "My So-Called Life," where we thought the narrator was unreliable. In this, I think we were looking at a whole culture that's presuming to put their life in public in a way that's new and unusual.

Herskovitz: I feel like we're also saying something about this generation and its contradictory feelings about privacy"
