Daniel J. Travanti,
A socially inept fourteen year old experiences heartbreak for the first time when his two best friends -- Cappie, an older-brother figure, and Maggie, the new girl with whom he is in love -- fall for each other.
Hillside follows the students of fictional Hillside School and dealt with a variety of issues including dating, divorce, alcohol abuse, and friendship. The show played heavily into stereotypes, including two characters named Dylan and Chris, who wore leather jackets to show off their toughness, but which could not completely disguise their inner selves.

Hi, I was a cameraman on "Fifteen" during it's second season, done in
Ottawa at CJOH-TV (Ist season-Vancouver, last 2-Orlando); recently
found a cast/crew photo which motivated me to look it up on IMDb. Both
15 and You Can't Do That On Television were produced there at the same
time, but never on the same days, so I don't think that was where Ryan
and Alanis 1st met, but it's a small world after all. We did the whole
season's episodes in a few weeks, cramming several sets, along with
cameras, booms, etc. into a relatively small space, circumstances which
I think might explain the shortcomings in production value, but I'll
argue that the cast often did exemplary work in light of their ages and
experience at the time. Ryan and Laura's success is no surprise.
Anyway, we did crank them out like sausages, but it was a fun show to
work and the kids were great.
