So Beautiful it Hurts: The Making of My So-Called Life is the story of how three visionary producers and a deeply dedicated cast and crew created a masterpiece that was born before its time. It also charts the influence it had on fashion, television, film, and the way we now view adolescence and ourselves. 

Based on exclusive interviews with those in front of and behind the camera, this unauthorized history tracks the program’s development from its first inspiration straight through production, cancelation, and its enduring influence.
