Hillside (USmarker title, Fifteen) is a live-action television series that aired on YTV in Canada and Nickelodeon in the United Statesmarker. The series was created and produced by John Binkley (creator-producer, The Perkins Family for WGBH/PBS; and No Adults Allowed for TV-AM in the UK). Its head writer for all 65 episodes was Ian Weir, who wrote all but 5 episodes. Its director was Michael Berry. 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

Dealing with teenage and high school issues, the series features a large ensemble cast which underwent several changes over the show's four season run. Committed to a no star ensemble, a number of new actors were introduced to the television audience, many of whom went on to establish careers in television and film. The first season of the show was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, the second season was recorded at the studios of CJOH-TVmarker in Ottawa, Ontariomarker, and the third and fourth seasons were videotaped at Nickelodeon Studiosmarker at Universal Studios in Orlando, Floridamarker.

The series was Nickelodeon's first and only teenage soap opera. It followed the students of Hillside School and dealt with a variety of issues including dating, divorce, alcohol abuse, and friendship. The series lasted from 1991 until 1993.

In 1993, various actors, including Ryan Reynolds and Laura Harris were nominated for a Young Artist Award. Reynolds later gained fame on the sitcom Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place and went on to star in movies such as National Lampoon's Van Wilder, Waiting..., The Amityville Horror, and Smokin' Aces. Harris was later seen in the movie The Faculty as well as 24, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and recently, Defying Gravity. Enuka Okuma has become well known in the anime fandom for playing the voice of Lady Une in the American dub of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing as well as appearing in the live action film, G Saviour.

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.
