TV show description:
From co-creators and writers Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle, and Sam Zvibleman, the PEN15 TV show is an adult comedy about life as a middle school student, in the year 2000. Erskine and Konkle star as 13-year-old fictionalized versions of themselves, Maya Ishii-Peters and Anna Kone (respectively) and play off actual adolescent actors.
Maya and Anna are nothing if not outcasts, but in the year 2000, the world is changing even faster than usual for these young teens. Suddenly, what begins as a banner day can go to hell in a stroke of a gel pen, or in an AIM chat.
The girls always mean to have each others backs, but when things like cigarettes, boys, drugs, the internet, school dances, and puberty come into play, anything can happen.
