Love, Relationships, Family Death and the Arrival of a Long Lost Sibling Hits Close to Home on South of Nowhere Season 2
The N Commences Production on 13 New Episodes of the Acclaimed Teen Drama
Beginning Monday, May 15 in Los Angeles
NEW YORK, May 2 -- The N, the nighttime network for teens,
begins production on season two of the teen favorite and critically
acclaimed series South of Nowhere. Production of 13 new half-hour episodes
from veteran writer-creator-producer Tom Lynch (Romeo!, Scout's Safari,
Caitlin's Way), will begin shooting Monday, May 15 on location in Los
Angeles. The second season of the original series will premiere on The N
Season two of South of Nowhere, which was recently nominated for a
GLAAD Award for Best Dramatic Series, will continue to deal with complex
story lines as the series delves deeper into the family life of the
Carlins' multi-racial home. New issues revolving around identity and other
life changing events such as addiction, adoption, being outed, death,
racial friction, hate crimes and the arrival of a long lost sibling will
all collide and shake the foundation of their everyday lives. How the
Carlins choose to confront and accept their biggest hardships will define
what and who they are as a family.
"South of Nowhere will continue to portray the authenticity of teens'
lives and the struggles that many face with self discovery and self
acceptance," said Amy Friedman, Senior Vice President, Development /
Creative Director, Nickelodeon Digital Television.
The second season of the acclaimed series will address lingering issues
left behind from season one. Plot lines include Ashley's relationship with
Spencer and the rift it has caused between Spencer and her mother Paula, as
well as Clay's struggle with his personal and racial identity after finding
his biological mother.
"In the first season, millions of fans around the country were
captivated by the realistic situations confronting our South of Nowhere
characters," said Lynch. "It's the viewers' devotion to our storylines that
inspires us to be bold, take risks and go deeper into the truth about the
lives of teens today. And we promise we won't disappoint!"
Tom Lynch, founder and CEO of The Tom Lynch Company, began his career
as a rock-n-roll producer on Don Kirschner's Rock Concert and as
