It all starts the moment shy, beautiful Felicity Porter asks Ben Covington to sign her high school yearbook. It's graduation day... he's gorgeous... and she's had a four-year crush on him. Even though the two have never spoken, what he writes is so insightful, so perfect, it persuades Felicity to change the course of her future. A future defined by medical school and the dreams of her parents. She surreptitiously follows Ben to UNY (the fictional University of New York) and is quickly swept into a romantic triangle that brings both discovery and heartache. Felicity moved to New York to find romance but ends up finding herself.Written by
In 1999, a publicly hyped young writer for the show, Riley Weston, was revealed as a deceiver because she claimed to be much younger than she really was. At the age of 32, she began to market herself to TV studios as a recent high school graduate, posing her husband as her older brother. She was soon hired by the WB Network as a writer for Felicity. Praised as a young writer, she appeared on Entertainment Weekly in the 1998 list of "100 Most Creative People in Entertainment," which described her as an up-and-coming nineteen-year-old. Shortly thereafter, she was offered a six-figure scenario writing arrangement with Disney. Her real identity and age became visible after a Felicity producer checked her social security number. Shortly thereafter her contract with WB expired and was not renewed, and her deal with Disney fell through. See more »
In the "Blackout" episode of Season 3, in the scene where Megan and Sean are talking after the electricity comes back on, we see Sean re-setting a digital clock to 11:45. In the next shot, the clock reads 10:11. See more »
I really liked "Felicity". I thought it was a very good show and it caught my attention at the very first beginning. The characters felt so real and I fell in love with them all. They were all so different in their own way and each one of them contributed something special to the show. Meghan's weirdness and Richard's humor worked for me! I will never forget the scene where Noel drinks that weird drink before their final exams and gets a little crazy - it always cracks me up!! I love watching reruns and I really wished I had it all on DVD. Have to get it one day - soon! "Felicity" was a really good show because it was actually very close to the reality of people at that age. Lots of problems that people in their early twenties deal with was portrayed on the show - for once in a normal degree.
