Dawson Leery, Joey Potter,
and Pacey Witter are life long friends, whose lives start to rapidly change
when a new girl, Jen Lindley, moves in next door to Dawson and the
foursome start high school. Chronicling the passage from adolescence to young adulthood, they are joined by two other
newcomers to Capeside: brother and sister Jack and Andie McPhee and, when they go to college, by
Audrey Liddell. Set in the fictional town of Capeside, MA., Dawson's Creek is the coming
of age story of a close knit group of friends on the verge of adulthood.
