SAG gains jurisdiction on ‘Quarterlife’

Guild continues to sign more Internet projects

The Screen Actors Guild has gained jurisdiction over “Quarterlife,” the Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz-produced Webisode series debuting Nov. 11 on MySpaceTV.com.

Internet-only drama, centers on a half-dozen young men and women dealing with life and love in Chicago. Plans call for 36 episodes, each running eight minutes, to be available through MySpace as a free ad-supported stream.

Show was originally conceived as a pilot and signed by SAG in 2004 but wasn’t picked up. The re-invented series is shot like a traditional hourlong drama but shown in smaller segments.

“This is another sign that the Internet is maturing into a productive distribution channel for professionally produced content,” said Doug Allen, SAG’s national exec director in announcing the guild’s jurisdiction.

SAG said 13 Guild members are working or have worked as principal performers on the webisodes. The segments will also air on social networking site quarterlife.com.

Allen said SAG has signed more than 200 Internet projects in the last two years.

Herskovitz and Zwick created primetime dramas “Once and Again,” “My So-Called Life” and “thirtysomething.”
