Wikipedia website, Aug. 9, 2007: (Teen drama: a television drama series that centers on teenage characters. The genre is relatively new, first appearing in the late 1980s. The shows are usually serial, starting when the characters are well into their teenage years (usually between 14 to 18 years of age) and if they have a long run, end when the characters are in their twenties. They typically deal with teen issues such as relationships, coming out, teenage pregnancy, teenage suicide, abortion, bereavement, child abuse, homelessness, male rape/date rape, alcohol addiction and drug abuse)
