Nick at Nite premieres original drama 'Hollywood Heights'

Nick at Nite adds sizzle to summer weeknights with the original primetime drama Hollywood Heights, kicking off with a special preview beginning Monday, June 11. The debut episode will encore every night at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) through Friday, June 15, with the series premiering on Monday, June 18 at 9:00 P.M. (ET/PT). Adapted for a U.S. audience from the wildly popular Mexican telenovela Alcanzar una Estrella, Hollywood Heights follows the journey of a teenage girl whose life changes drastically when she becomes a star and wins the love of her rock and roll idol, and both are tested by setbacks, heartbreak and deception. The first season of the 80-episode series, co-produced with Televisa in association with Sony Pictures Television, will air weeknights at 9p.m. through October 2012.

Hollywood Heights centers on Loren Tate (Brittany Underwood), a shy teen whose musical aspirations inch closer to reality when she wins a songwriting contest sponsored by Eddie Duran (Cody Longo), a rock star at the top of his game. Although Loren and Eddie’s budding partnership – on-stage and off – faces obstacles, their strong family bonds inspire them to keep going.

Joining Brittany and Cody in the cast are Robert Adamson, Brandon P Bell,  Ashley Holliday, Shannon Kane, Hunter King, Brian Letscher, Grayson McCouch, Melissa Ordway, Meredith Salenger, Justin Wilczynski, Jama Williamson and Carlos Ponce. 

The show also scored a casting coup with Academy Award nominee James Franco. He will star in a multi-episode arc as Osborne "Oz" Silver, an eccentric movie mogul who lives life to the fullest, often outrageously. Offbeat, seductive and ruthless when he has to be, Oz adores making movies and does whatever it takes to make the films he wants.

The first episode of "Hollywood Heights" is available for viewing online ahead of the June 18th premiere. To watch the pilot, click Hollywood Heights
