Generation X-ers retain fond memories of coming home from school, casting aside their Trapper Keepers, and cozying up to moralistic tales of teen pregnancy, suicide, and drug abuse on ABC's Emmy Award-winning AFTER SCHOOL SPECIALS. Airing on weekday afternoons from 1974-1989, the series' issue-oriented storylines were adapted from young-adult novels and starred some of the most popular teen actors of its day: Rob Lowe, Dana Plato, Nancy McKeon, Melissa Sue Anderson, and the queen of 1970s television melodrama, Kristy McNichol. This collection offers a quartet of star-studded specials produced by Martin Tahse between 1982-1986: "Two Loves for Jenny" features THE BRADY BUNCH's Robert Reed in the story of a talented young girl competing with her boyfriend for a music scholarship; the Emmy Award-winning "Did You Hear What Happened to Andrea'" stars Michelle Greene as a teenage girl struggling through the aftermath of rape; "Ace Hits the Big Time" spoofs street-gang musicals with James LeGros starring as a transfer student who faces choreographed run-ins with a gang; and "Face at the Edge of the World" co-stars Rob Stone (MR. BELVEDERE) and Malcolm-Jamal Warner (THE COSBY SHOW) in a sensitive exploration of teen suicide.
