“With everything that I’ve done, it’s always been about– the thing I thought I could bring to the show that’s unique to my voice, is hopefully a way of building these characters so that you were really invested in the relationships and really cared about them, and hopefully if you bought into the premise of the show, you could enjoy it because of the relationships and the connections between [the characters],” Katims explained.
He said that his interest in writing teenage protagonists started with his work on “My So-Called Life,” when the writers embraced the idea that “when you’re a teenager, life is an emergency.” “I think there’s something about writing about that period in somebody’s life that is really compelling to me because it’s a time when we’re really formed, it’s a time where you’re both a child and an adult at the same time,” Katims explained.
Now: Appleby recently had recurring roles on ‘Girls’ and ‘Franklin and Bash.’ She’s married to chef John Shook, and the pair recently had a baby daughter together.

The show ended in 2002 — and now, 11 years later, we look back at the cast of the series and see where they are now.But a dedicated, if not small, fanbase, kept it going, sending bottles of Tabasco sauce to TV network bosses (watch the show to get the reference), and even now it remains one of the most loved teen dramas from the early Noughties.Nearly twenty years after it first aired on our screens though, we take a look at what Liz, Max, Maria and co are now up to…“I thought it through like it was actually a good idea,” he says.“It was an idea I never would’ve come up with on my own,” he admitted.“It seemed like an incredibly romantic idea to me, these two characters, Liz and Max, being in love but having this very real thing that kept them from being together.Then: Shiri Appleby played Liz, the good-natured main protagonist of the series who falls in love with Max Evans, a fellow high school student who is part alien.
