Los Angeles - The producers of TV shows including "thirtysomething" and "My So-Called Life" have announced a deal to turn a rejected ABC TV pilot into a Web-based series called "Quarterlife," which will be distributed on MySpace.

Emmy Award-winners Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz will also launch a social networking site around the show, which centers on two twenty-somethings living in Chicago, at Quarterlife.com.

The Web series will consist of 36 eight-minutes episodes, which will initially be posted to MySpaceTV and Quarterlife.com, after which point distribution may expand to services like YouTube and iTunes.

"This come from a long-standing frustration with where the business of television has gone in the last 10 years," Herskovitz told Variety.

"Ed and I have a great interest in being independent, and for several years, we've realized the Internet offers that possibility."
