The N will debut 11-episode series South of Nowhere in November.
South of Nowhere, from veteran creator and executive producer Tom Lynch, focuses on sexual and racial identity and self-discovery, the teen-targeted MTV Networks service said.
“South of Nowhere will explore those sensitive topics -- sex, class, race, drugs, figuring out who you are and what you believe in -- that are very much on teens' minds today," Lynch said in a prepared statement. "I believe The N is the only network bold and daring enough to air this series, and I'm thrilled to be collaborating with them."
The N executive vice president and general manager Tom Ascheim added, “South of Nowhere taps into a family's sense of dislocation as they move from their comfort zone of living in a small town into a new, fast-paced world of the unknown. The series takes viewers on an authentic and multifaceted journey of self-discovery that is sure to resonate with The N's teen audience.”
