Young Americans (television series)
The show was set in the town of New Rawley at a tony boarding school, Rawley Academy. The lead was Will Krudski (Rodney Scott), who cheated on the entrance exam to gain admission. Mark Famiglietti played Scout Calhoun. Katherine Moennig was masquerading as a boy, Jake Pratt. Kate Bosworth was Bella Banks, a pretty townie all the boys lusted after. Ian Somerhalder was another student at the school, Hamilton Fleming .
It was a "semi-spinoff" of Dawson's Creek, also produced by Columbia TriStar Television, by having its lead introduced in three episodes at the end of that series's third season. Young Americans occupied Dawson's Creek's timeslot of Wednesdays at 8 P.M. when that show went on hiatus in the summer of 2000. Repeats were shown at 8 P.M. on Fridays. Greg Berlanti, a writer and producer on Dawson's Creek, also wrote for the show.
The Coca-Cola Company was the primary sponsor, the show being billed as "Coca-Cola Presents Young Americans".
