ABC to Develop Teen Sex Drama
ABC has ordered a script for a pilot based on the Melvin Burgess book about male teenage lust. The series, called "Doing It," will follow the travails of three teenage boys as they awkwardly work their way through their first sexual experiences. The program will be executive produced by former ABC entertainment president Francie Calfo and will be written by Jeff Judah and Gabe Sachs of "Freaks and Geeks" fame.
Network censors will be put to the test on this one if the series is to be true to the book which holds nothing back in its depiction of teen sex.
