El espectáculo juega con los estereotipos, incluyendo dos protagonistas de nombres Dylan y Chris, que usan chaquetas de cuero para mostrar su dureza, pero no pueden disimular por completo su interior.

La serie cuenta con un gran elenco que sufrió varios cambios durante las cuatro temporadas de realización. Miembros destacados del reparto son Chris William Martin como Dylan Blackwell (toda la serie), Laura Harris como Ashley Frasier (toda la serie), Ryan Reynolds como Billy Simpson (toda la serie) and Todd Talbot como Matt Walker (toda la serie).

 

“Hillside” or “Fifteen”

TV serie Hillside (in Canada), known as Fifteen (in USA), is a Canadian-American teen drama that aired on YTV in Canada and Nickelodeon in the United States from 1991 to 1993. Created and produced by John T. Binkley, the series was Nickelodeon’s first and only teenage soap opera. La serie cuenta con 65 episodios.

The series was first conceived as Fifteen in an improvised form for The Disney Channel, where a 13-episode pilot series was produced and tested in the US. After Disney decided not to proceed with the project, Nickelodeon and Canadian partners joined Binkley in producing the series which was known in its first and second seasons as Hillside in Canada, and throughout the 65 episode run as Fifteen in the U.S. The show was subsequently syndicated around the world, with runs in Germany, the Children’s Channel in Europe, and Israel, among others.

Overview
Hillside followed the students of fictional Hillside School and dealt with a variety of issues including dating, divorce, alcohol abuse, and friendship. The show played heavily into stereotypes, including two characters named Dylan and Chris, who wore leather jackets to show off their toughness, but which could not completely disguise their inner selves.

The series features a large ensemble cast which underwent several changes over the show’s four season run. Notable cast members include Chris William Martin as Dylan Blackwell (entire run), Laura Harris as Ashley Frasier (entire run), Ryan Reynolds as Billy Simpson (entire run) and Todd Talbot as Matt Walker (entire run).
