‘Senior’ film project gets PBS funding

Docu series to feature Fairfax students

By way of a $600,000 grant, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has greenlit production on docu series “Senior Year.”

The project, exec-produced and helmed by David Zeiger (“The Band”), will use recent UCLA and USC film school grads to follow a group of Fairfax High School seniors. Series should air on PBS stations in 2001.

The featured teens include a gay cheerleader who’s also a member of the ROTC, a gifted student saddled with attention deficit disorder, an aspiring artist in trouble with police and a hotly recruited football star.

Given the diverse group of subjects, Zeiger still envisions a successful shoot because “teaming the seniors with young, yet skilled filmmakers creates an atmosphere of trust and openness.” Zeiger is currently in post-production on docu “Funny Old Guys” a docu about aging Hollywood TV scribes.
