Like a rare comet, My So-Called Life streaked across American TV screens in 1994, disappearing as quickly as it appeared, leaving behind just 19 episodes. Yet in that short time, the angsty drama about 15-year-old Angela Chase and her friends remains one of the greatest television programs ever made. 

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.
