James At 15
September 5, 1977  - July 27, 1978

James at 15 was a series way ahead of its time.  This NBC drama starred Lance Kerwin as a high school student who moved from Oregon to Boston where his father accepted a new job as a college professor.

At first James had a hard time adjusting but soon made friends with a hip black guy named "Sly" and a plain but very intelligent female named "Marlene".

Stories revolved around high school activities and some social situations.

In one episode the boys basketball team is challenged by the girls team and the girls beat the guys.  In another episode James older sister moves in with her teacher at college and in the second season James gets a girl pregnant.

Kim Richards who played Prudence on Nanny & The Professor played the younger sister of James.

James at 15 was one of the best dramas to ever hit television in the 70's, the public just wasn't ready for such an honest series.

In season 2 the series title was changed to James at 16.
