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 October 2006.

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 creator-writer- producer of Night Tracks. With an extensive roster of television hits to his credit -- including Caitlin's Way, Just Deal, Skate, Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension, and the Emmy-nominated Scout's Safari, which was set and filmed on location in South Africa -- Lynch rediscovered his musical roots with the hip-hop sitcom Romeo!, starring rap artist Master P and his real-life son, Romeo, and Class of 3000, a co-production with Andre Benjamin of OutKast, which debuts this fall. Lynch and the company that bears his name continue to create groundbreaking, uniquely fresh, innovative shows that resonate with audiences around the world by "illuminating the magic of the human experience" -- celebrating all the drama, the humor, the kookiness and reality of human beings' lives.
