A look at the 25-year history of the Degrassi franchise.
Saturday Sept. 17 at 7pm ET Classic Degrassi alumnus Stefan Brogren (currently featured in Degrassi: The Next Generation) leads viewers on a retrospective look at life with Degrassi over the past quarter-century. Brogren goes on the road, reconnecting with other Classic Degrassi cast members while providing a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of current cast members of the latest incarnation of the franchise.
Brogren embarks on a mission – reconnecting with friends he hasn’t seen in some time, as well as those he still sees on a regular basis. Together, they reminisce about life as child actors. Guests include former cast members Amanda Stepto (“Spike”); Pat Mastroianni (“Joey Jeremiah”); Dayo Ade (“BLT”); Angela and Maureen Deiseach (“The Twins”); Siluck Saysanasy (“Yick Yu”), Stacie Mistysyn (“Caitlyn Ryan”); and Neil Hope (“Wheels”). Degrassi: The Next Generation cast-mates Adamo Ruggiero (“Marco”), Miriam McDonald (“Emma”), and Jake Epstein (“Craig”) discuss their current experiences with the series, and their thoughts on what makes this show so successful.
Through interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, The Degrassi Story reveals how the franchise has thrived for a quarter century. The secret ingredient remains its ability to speak directly to its audience, tackling the toughest of issues in a realistic way.
