Madison was a fast-paced character driven half-hour dramatic series set in and around an urban multicultural high school, Madison High, in Vancouver. The show traced the lives of twelve teenagers as they made tough choices while growing up. Hard-hitting, honest and wry, the stories reflected on Madison were developed with the input of teens from across Canada. Additional creative input from the cast provided a candor and insight that gave the series a refreshing authenticity rarely seen on TV. The cast included Joely Collins, Chad Willett, Michelle Beaudoin, Stacy Grant, Jonathan Scarfe, Chris Martin, William Sasso, Sarah Strange, Peter Stebbings and Enuka Okuma. Filmed in Vancouver, the final two years of the program followed the kids beyond high school.
