The ABC Family series debuted...
Executive producer Brenda Hampton knows a thing or two about the life of the American teenager. Her family drama 7th Heaven ran for 11 seasons and now her hit ABC Family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager is marking its landmark 100th episode on Monday (8/7c). Secret Life stars Shailene Woodley as a high school student whose life gets turned upside down when she becomes pregnant — and things just get more complicated from there. Hampton took a moment to tell us why we should learn the secrets of The Secret Life.
TV Guide Magazine: It's been 100 episodes. Is the American teenager's life secret anymore?
Brenda Hampton: Oh yeah. Teenagers always have secrets. That's because they're never doing what they're supposed to do. You were a teenager, right? You have secrets from when you were a teen, don't you? No? Liar!
When Shailene Woodley was cast in ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager, little did she know she's spend a quarter of her life filming the series.
"When I signed on, I didn't think about award shows, magazines, the amount of episodes, but to get this far and accomplish 100, it's crazy to wrap your head around," Woodley tells TVGuide.com. "The most exciting thing about it is that all of us have seen each other grow and have a lot of first experiences on the show. It's really special to have those kinds of people in your life."
Fox has released the second wave of nominees for the 2012 Teen Choice Awards.
