Will Me, MYSELF & I Change Aging Stereotypes on TV?

Aging Trend In TV Program

Earlier this week I penned a blog post on the power of pop culture to influence attitude change. Then this week I caught the trailer for Me, MYSELF, & I. In this project we follow one man over a 50 year period simultaneously. First, we meet the character Alex Riley at age 14. Next as a 40-year-old¬†father. Finally, at age 65. Similar to NBC’s¬†This Is Us¬†we follow the series characters navigate life.

Time Lapse Aging

As a gerontologist, I love time lapse aging. By focusing on three periods of life we get an insight on what formed the characters. In addition, it changes the narrative of aging from othering¬†to¬†inclusion. ¬†Equally important the shows catch phrase Our life’s stories aren’t defined by what happens to us. They are defined by how we choose to deal them. Definitely a family friendly series and one I hope you’ll join me in watching.

About Me

At the present time, I am the Director of Program Innovation at Advocates For Aging. When you think of older adults do you see America’s largest resource? I do.  With this in mind, I combined my background in business with a desire to influence aging in America. For this reason, I was the first Gerontologist to speak at South by Southwest. Additionally, it’s why I wrote Freewheeling After Sixty. Freewheeling is the first book to empower older adults about their transportation choices. In essence, a book for older drivers with information on how to create a transportation plan. What if older adults had the resources to plan for remaining independent without a car?
