Brittany Snow

'American Dreams'

“American Dreams” scribe Jonathan Prince describes teen actress Brittany Snow as someone as pure as her surname.

“I want to protect her from the world. That’s what Brittany represents,” says Prince, who adds that Peacock prexy Jeff Zucker feels the same way. “He thinks she hangs the moon.”

On “Dreams,” Snow portrays a seemingly ordinary teen in 1960s-era Philadelphia whose dream is to appear on “American Bandstand.” Skein address such cultural hot potatoes as birth control, women’s lib and the assassination of John F. Kennedy — all in the first episode.

“We often like to think those were simpler times but they weren’t. They were scary times,” Prince adds.

Snow agrees, saying after researching the tumultuous era of the 1960s in preparation for her role, she would compare those events to what America is going through post-Sept. 11. “Those issues were very relevant at that time. I think it’s necessary to show that the world was changing, indicating a loss of innocence.”
