SYNOPSIS:
This is a show about growing up. That time in your life when you have one foot in the kid world and the other in the adult one. When you love your parents even though you don’t always agree with them. And your best friend is the most important person on the planet. It’s when you figure out who you are and who you want to be. And you discover there’s more to everyone than just their online profile. It’s when you find out the world is less than perfect, but you believe you can fix it. Because when you’re fifteen, anything is possible as long as you can dream it and you can find someone to give you a ride.

Each half-hour episode follows Holly trying to make the world a better place, while tackling the everyday challenges of growing up – from bullies to breakouts, and crushes to curfews – in a funny and emotional way. Malala wouldn’t let a pimple stop her from trying to achieve world peace, right?

This show looks like Instagram, sounds like T-Swift, and feels like your mom’s or dad’s best home-cooked meal. There are lots of laughs and a few tears. (Don’t worry, kids today can handle it!) Because this generation knows the world isn’t perfect. They understand some families have more than others, that the earth is getting too hot, and some people try to hurt others because they’re different. But they don’t want be shielded. They want to fix this. Because they have big hearts and big brains. Just like Holly. And this will be their show.


Character Descriptions and Audition Packages:

[AMY EPPERSON] FIRST NATIONS. FEMALE. AGE 13. Holly’s BFF is usually the smartest person in the room, but doesn’t make a habit of pointing it out. Amy’s not embarrassed by her brains; she’s just intelligent enough to know that no one likes a know-it-all. Amy loves science and math. She dreams about becoming an astronaut someday, but is also interested in regular teen girl stuff. She craves new ideas and experiences – whether it’s a new song (she’s a bit of an audiophile), a new app, or her first high school party. This dry wit is usually the voice of reason during Holly’s daring schemes. SERIES LEAD
