Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Edgemont, the award-winning teen drama, has been entertaining, informing and affecting audiences of all ages since 2000. Now, with five seasons broadcast ready and a strong following in over a dozen countries, Edgemont is well on the way to being "That" show - the one that defines a whole generation of Canadian teenagers. But not just Canadian teens - fan mail and audience numbers confirm that Edgemont intrigues and draws in people from around the world who tell us that "it's just like it is/was" in their high school. The world of Edgemont revolves around relationships - dating, family, friendship, power games and trust. It's high school in all its glory - or gruesome details, depending on the kind of day you're having. It's a time of innocence and harsh lessons learned. It's a world full of decisions and dilemmas: an unplanned pregnancy, the school bully, a trip out of the closet, school as a single mom. But it's also a world of fun, freedom, gossip, parties and junk food - lots of junk food. Over the years we see the students of McKinley High deal with life from the ages of 15 to 18. Having a long-lived series like Edgemont allows executive producer/series creator Ian Weir the chance to nurture younger characters within the show while giving the core group ever more complex situations to deal with.
