About the series
Every year 750,000 American teens will become pregnant.
9INE is an award-winning web series – a teen drama produced by One Economy that chronicles nine months in the life of soon-to-be teen parents. Geared towards teens, parents, educators and advocates – 9INE is being used to foster discussion and better choices among young people regarding teen pregnancy and their future.
Though there are a number of reality shows that cover teen pregnancy, 9INE has been acknowledged as one of the few shows that actually highlights the perspective of teen fathers.
With engaging performances from a solid and experienced cast, each episode of 9INE ends with a real-life story of a teenager dealing with pregnancy and/or parenting.
9INE is written, produced directed by Allen Sowelle, who has many years of editing, producing, directing and writing for television and film. It stars: Liz Vassey (CSI and Two and A Half Men); Brian J. White (Men of a Certain Age and The Shield); Jonathan ‘Lil J’ McDaniel (Cougar Town and Entourage); and Chasiti Hampton (Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper).
9INE is also available on DVD with a comprehensive teen pregnancy discussion guide that breaks down the issues posited in each episode. Developed by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy specifically for the 9INE series, this DVD is currently being used across the country to help broaden the discussion around teen male/father’s responsibility in regards to pregnancy and parenting.
