TV show description:
Preppy Christopher “Chris” Anderson (Scott Whyte) lives on Park Avenue while Jamal Grant (Wesley Jonathan) comes from the streets of Harlem.
After being kicked out of their own respective schools, the two very different students start attending Manhattan High School in New York City. They soon become part of a diverse group of friends that includes Dawn Tartikoff (Caitlin Mowrey), Alberto ‘Al Rocket Man Buttons’ Ramos (Dion Basco), Cassidy Giuliani (Marissa Dyan), and Lionel “El-Train” Johnson (Steven Daniel).
They make their way through their school years and do their best to slip under the radar of Principal Karen Coretta Noble (Marcella Lowery).
