NBC Friday said it would bring âQuarterlife,â the Web series from TV and movie veterans Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, to television screens, Reuters reports
. Itâs the first property developed for the Web to make the leap to TV, and the deal comes as networks and studios look for material in the midst of a writersâ strike that may dry up programming options. Herskovitz says the Writers Guild of America has determined that indy Web projects arenât subject to the strike. An NBC order for more episodes could, however, cross the line, Herskovitz said. The deal makes NBC a partner in âQuarterlife,â and the network paid for rights to air the show in the U.S. on TV, internationally, on DVD and the Web.
