Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick got NBC to shell out for their online series Quarterlife. (ABC passed on the series 3 years ago). NBC will contribute to production and development costs,while the two producers will retain ownership and creative control of the show. The show may be strike proof as it’s primarily an independently-financed online venture not subject to the strike embargo, but Marshall Herskovitz tells Nikki Finke that everything’s kosher.

The trailer looks like LonelyGirl15, without the occult stuff.

The series, which debuted on MySpace.com, revolves around a 20something young woman whose online blog tells the “truth” about her closest friends. The 36 eight-minute episodes will be turned into a six-part one-hour drama airing early 2008 on the network as well as streamed on NBC.com. NBC also bought the DVD and foreign distribution rights and an equity stake in quarterlife.com, the companion social network site–”for artists, thinkers and doers”. Judging by the forums, the site’s not exactly packed with any other those.

On the other hand, where else can you learn how the WGA strike is hurting the tattoo industry?
