The Bedford Diaries

The Bedford Diaries

The Bedford Diaries opens up the lives of six very different students brought together in a Human Behavior and Sexuality class at Bedford University, a small liberal arts college in Manhattan. With constant inspiration from Professor Macklin (Matthew Modine), the students’ thoughts and feelings are exposed through weekly video diaries, leading each one of the students to question their current notions about love, sexuality, and identity.

Sarah Gregory (Tiffany DuPont), the Student Government President, is self assured and confident on the outside, but on the inside she is vulnerable and weak when it comes to love. Also in the class is her younger brother, Owen Gregory (Penn Badgley), a freshman, who is preoccupied with his newfound freedom and college life. Lee (Ernest Waddell), a scholarship student interested in art history, has a serious girlfriend, but becomes increasingly attracted to Zoe Lopez (Victoria Cartagena). Zoe, similar to Sarah, has a rough exterior, but has to deal with her feelings for Lee and hide the fact that she is still a virgin from the rest of the class. Natalie Dykstra (Corri English), an outgoing and beautiful girl, is recovering from a suicide attempt, and has to deal with the new stereotypes surrounding her after her jump. Richard Throne (Milo Ventimiglia)used to be a bad boy and a junkie, but turned his life around after Natalie’s jump. Now clean, Richard works on the school newspaper, but constantly has to deal with his past.

Though from very different backgrounds, openly talking to each other about their sexual encounters, or lack thereof, leaves them with a better understanding about one another and themselves.

Lee has a tough time abstaining from both sex and gambling and is forced to go to Richard for a loan to pay back his gambling debt. Zoe is hired as the school's sex columnist. Owen and Natalie re-evaluate their relationship when Natalie refuses to let Owen stay with her for a few days.
