Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Edgemont is a television program designed for middle and high school students aged 13-16 years- old and is rated TV-PG. Originally produced by Canada?s public broadcaster, CBC, the series depicts the everyday lives of teenagers in the fictitious suburban town of Edgemont. Each 30- minute episode generally focuses on the children?s activities at AC McKinley Secondary School. Edgemont is designed to entertain its core teen audience and also to inform and educate its viewers about issues that arise in school and at home. The storylines focus on social and emotional challenges faced by all secondary school students, from forming and maintaining family, friendship and romantic relationships, to ethical and moral choices. The objective of the series is to demonstrate models of behavior for teen viewers, allowing them to consider choices that they themselves may face, to witness the potential outcomes of these choices and gain positive tools that they can use to resolve issues and conflicts in a constructive way. Most scenes occur in and around the McKinley School and the teens? homes and follow the interactions of the teens. School work is taken seriously, depicted through characters studying in the library, receiving or discussing grades or doing homework at home. The cast portrays teenagers in a realistic manner with diversity along physical, social and ethnic lines, providing opportunities for most viewers to identify directly with specific characters. Each episode advances a few specific storylines based on particular social or emotional issues and takes them to a new conclusion. Characters act out behaviors that bring these issues to the forefront, and they solve problems, generally without intervention by adults but through communication with peers and direct action, which leads to a better understanding of each situation and each other. At the same time, actions do lead to consequences, and the outcomes provide a ?life lesson? that is plainly evident but conveyed to the viewer in a natural way. It is anticipated that, on viewing Edgemont, teen viewers will compare their own behaviors to those of the characters, and the series may provide a vehicle for them to openly express to peers, and potentially teachers and parents, their own ideas and concerns relating to the issues portrayed. Parental viewing may also provide parents an additional perspective on the developmental process and social and emotional pressures in their children?s lives. The series also touches on significant societal issues, which is intended to inform teens on these topics, stimulate conversations among teen viewers and potentially complement classroom discussions. These issues range from considerations of diversity, racism and sexual identity, to divorce, teen pregnancy, bullying and alcohol and substance abuse. The series website provides additional materials, including Study Guides, to assist educators and parents in stimulating discussion of Edgemont with teens.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. It is during the adolescent years that career exploration, planning, education, and decision-making begins. There is no questions that a career in one of the multimedia industries is among the most popular career choices of adolescents. Although many feel their calling is for a more abvioux on-camera career in acting, there are also a number of "behind the screen" pursuits that make for fulfilling career choices. Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition was created by Connection 111 Entertainment Corp. to provide career information and advice from top Hollywood professionals to 13-16 year old viewers so they can "explore and learn about the technical, artistic, creative, business, and administrative careers that are a part of the motion picture, television, music video, and home entertainment industries". To guide the production of Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition, Berry (2006) developed a career and guidance model that offers a framework for the development of each episode.
