My Generation is an American mockumentary television series created by Noah Hawley and produced by ABC Studios which follows a group of high school classmates in Austin, Texas in 2000, then revisits them ten years after graduation to find out whether they achieved their hopes and dreams.
The series aired in the USA on ABC from 23-30 September, 2010. Although eight episodes were produced, only two aired in the USA before the series was cancelled and removed from the schedule.

What a difference ten years can make. A documentary crew captured Greenbelt High School's class of 2000 on film, highlighting all their hopes and dreams for the future.
Now, it's ten years later and as these former classmates return home, they'll discover that just because you're not where you planned doesn't mean you're not right where you need to be.
In 2000, a documentary crew visited Greenbelt High School in Austin, Texas. To portray the spirit of real American teenagers, they followed students like Steven Foster ("The Overachiever"), Jackie Fox ("The Beauty Queen"), Ken Finley ("The Nerd"), Dawn Barbuso ("The Punk") and the most popular couple, Brenda Serrano ("The Brain") and Anders Holt ("The Rich Kid").
Each of these students couldn't wait to graduate and head out into the real world. But the world they were entering got very real, very fast.
As these classmates return home to revisit their old hopes for their future, they'll discover that even if you don't get exactly what you thought you wanted out of life, it's not too late to get what you need.
Creator Noah Hawley delivers a captivating dramedy about a new lost generation. Full of both humour and heart, My Generation shows that even if you don't have it all figured out, it's never too late to find your way.
