Plot Synopsis

Using original interviews with gen-X members and archival footage from the era, each one-hour episode of GENERATION X examines one major milestone of Gen X -- from the remarkable presidential election of 2008 to the legalization of gay marriage -- and then explores the political, cultural and economic forces at play. How did the generation between baby boomers and millenials become characterized as slackers? And how did they shed that label? Narrated by Christian Slater, the series also features a group of authors, journalists, politicians and celebrities -- many of them gen X-ers themselves -- who lend their voices and their personal stories to the series, including Kevin Smith, Courtney Love, Sarah Palin, Molly Ringwald, Gavin Newsom, Cory Booker, Julian Assange, Alison Stewart, Rachel Dratch, Tabitha Soren, Sway Calloway, Nas and many others.
