With a cast of mostly unknowns and debutants, American Pie debuted in summer 1999. With risqué teen drama and comedy as its genre, no one back then ever imagined that the show will scale heights of popularity and will add eight more sequels to its name. The show which was just a gamble for producers became legendary with time. The franchise that earned more than $235 million dollars at the time of its first step launched many unknown faces into the tinsel town stratosphere. Many of which disappeared right back to the darkness they came from but many made sure they stay in limelight for years to come.
