Item Description
James at 15 (also known as James at 16) is an American drama series that aired on NBC in the 1977-1978 season. The series was preceded by the 1977 made-for-TV movie James at 15, intended as a pilot for the series. Both were written by Dan Wakefield, a journalist and fiction writer whose novel Going All the Way, a tale of coming of age in the 1950s, had led to his being contacted by David Sontag of Twentieth Century Fox when an NBC programming executive expressed interest in a show about a teenage boy.

SynopsisProtagonist James Hunter (Lance Kerwin) was the son of a college professor (Linden Chiles) who moved his family across the country to take a teaching job, transplanting James from Oregon to Boston, Massachusetts.[1] James, who had Walter Mitty-like dreams and dabbled in photography, had a hard time fitting into his new surroundings.

Wakefield, who was born and raised in Indianapolis but eventually moved to Boston, said he chose Boston both because he wanted to write about a city he knew well and also because he was tired of television's tendency to give programs Los Angeles or New York settings.[1] To update his own memories of growing up, the writer spoke with adolescents from the Boston area.
