The High School is a family comedy based in Orange County, California (and Los Angeles, CA). If I would pitch this to you in one sentence, I would say " a High School Version of the Office". The series is centered around main character, Chrissie who dreams of becoming a famous journalist but for now she is stuck in the unrelenting hallways of High School. One day she has an idea that can help her gain experience. She wants to interview students about their highschool journeys and in exchange they dont have to go to detention. The show is mainly a series of interviews and flashbacks of her fellow peers (ie. Pilot episode), and it also follows Chrissie and our other main characters (Darielle, Jordin, Marrinna, Chad, Brooke, Candace, Debbie, Principal Ladoochky, Chase) around during their daily routine (ie. Episode 3). All mains except Principal Ladoochky are sophomores in highschool. Main similarities to the Office is its mockumentary-type setup as well as the fact that it takes place in primarily one location, an average High School. I would really like the show to incorporate the same great California vibes that can be found in shows like 90210 while keeping things funny like Orange is the new Black. I want things to be kept really upbeat and vibrant yet chill and focused at the same time. In terms of locations, I want the highschool to be our main setting but I want there to be many wierd and unusual settings also incorporated to keep things visually relevant.
Money raised will help with cost for fisrt 3 episodes of series including the pilot. (Locations,cast,crew,food, promotion)
