Dead at 21 Information

Dead at 21 is a television series broadcast by MTV in 1994. The series ran for eleven thirty-minute episodes with a two part final episode. The series was created by Jon Sherman (Frasier, All-American Girl, Bill Nye The Science Guy), and written by Sherman, P.K. Simonds (Party of Five, Ghost Whisperer) and Manny Coto (Dr. Giggles, Enterprise, 24).


The premise of the show was that Ed Bellamy (Jack Noseworthy) discovered on his 20th birthday that he was an unknowing subject of a childhood medical experiment. Microchips had been implanted in his brain, which make him a genius but will also kill him by his 21st birthday. Ed, accompanied by Maria Cavalos (Lisa Dean Ryan), tries to find a way to prevent his death. The research center then gave the order to terminate the project and eliminate anyone involved. The center frames Ed for a murder and sends Agent Winston (Whip Hubley) to capture him.
