"Hollywood Heights" (Nickelodeon TV show) is a groundbreaking, original U.S. adaptation of the popular Mexican telenovela, "Reach for a Star" ("Alcanzar una Estrella"), first broadcast on Canal de las Estrellas and Univision in 1990. The success of the series led to a film and sequel telenovela starring Latin American pop sensations, Ricky Martin and Sasha Sokol.

The single-camera, daily series follows a smart, shy and independent high school senior, Loren, who has ambitions of being a songwriter and secretly sends her song lyrics to her celebrity crush, rock superstar Eddie Wild. Loren's wildest dreams come true when she not only wins a songwriting competition sponsored by Eddie, but strikes up a friendship with her idol. Eddie sees beyond Loren's potential as a songwriter and gives her a first break as a singer, and when the truth about his less-than-faithful girlfriend Chloe is revealed, Eddie and Loren's friendship blossoms.  

"Hollywood Heights" is produced in association with Sony Pictures Television. The series is co-executive produced by six-time Emmy Award-winner Jill Farren Phelps ("General Hospital," "One Life to Live") and Hisham Abed ("The Hills" and "The City"). Josh Griffith ("Young and the Restless," "As the World Turns") serves as head writer.
