Throughout the school year, these middle-school classmates find themselves navigating relationships, discovering their unknown talents and learning lessons on loyalty and friendships.

The series features guest appearances from Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy, Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)), Kendall Schmidt (Big Time Rush) and Kira Kosarin (The Thundermans).

Its director Richard Linklater and producer Scott Rudin serve as series Executive Producers, along with Eli Bush (The Newsroom, Ex Machina).
