Edit Storyline It's the 1980s and at McKinley High, there's two different groups of teenagers, the Freaks with cool and charismatic Daniel Desario and tomboy Lindsay Weir and the Geeks with Lindsay's shy younger brother Sam, gentle Bill Haverchuck, and self-proclaimed ladies' man Neal Schweiber. The show chronicles the normal teen/adolescence problems any teenager goes through including acceptance, drugs, drinking, and bullying. Written by Corey Semple (Hairsprayer07)
Freaks and Geeks is an American teen comedy-drama television series, created by Paul Feig and with Feig and Judd Apatow as executive producers , that aired on NBC during the 1999–2000 television season . Eighteen episodes were completed, but the series was canceled after only twelve had aired. [ 1 ] A fan-led campaign persuaded NBC to broadcast three more episodes in July 2000; [ 2 ] the three remaining unaired episodes were not seen until September of that year, when the cable network Fox Family Channel aired them in syndication . [ 3 ] The complete series was later released on DVD. Freaks and Geeks has a devoted cult following .
Gone but Not 4-Gotten Like Wonderfalls , My So-Called Life , and other ill-fated explorations of the adolescent psyche, Freaks and Geeks seemed to fall through every imaginable crack. But on any given night, the show's audience was 6.5 million strong, and so adoring that viewers eventually bonded together to buy a full-page Variety ad protesting its cancellation (which came midway through its very first season, in March of 2000). It's easy to imagine that, given a modicum of network support, the show's audience might have doubled, and doubled again.
It's been 10 years since 'Freaks and Geeks' ended (the finale aired July 8, 2000). The last we saw of Lindsay Weir she was heading off into the sunset with her Deadhead classmates. Looking back at the show, it's evident that the short-lived series had a pretty profound impact on pop culture. Not only did the show give viewers a closer look stars-in-the-making Linda Cardellini , Seth Rogen , James Franco and Jason Segel , but it also showcased some great music.
It's been more than a decade since NBC's Freaks and Geeks graced the small screen, but it certainly doesn't feel like it. The full house was treated to a rare reunion of most of the drama's core cast (and a screening of the finale) -- and even a message from Oscar-nominated actor James Franco . Fresh off his highly-criticized Academy Awards hosting gig, Franco joked that he and Anne Hathaway were now gearing up to host the Emmys and the NAACP Image Awards. (Keep your eyes peeled for exclusive interviews with the cast and producers.) Here are nine things that were revealed about the beloved high school series Saturday night at PaleyFest: 1.
