THE "IN" CROWD[/b][/u]
You think life sucks when your nobody? Come see how the other half lives.[/i]
SUMMARY: When you're an outcast and friendless in high school, that's bad. When you're popular and have everyone analyzing every move you make, that's worse.
No one knows this better than the populars of Valley High School in Cheyenne Valley, Florida: Lulu Franklin, Sloan Wu, and Marney Vega.
With more secrets to hide than a Republican, these three go through the motions of finishing up their high school years at the same time as keeping their personal issues on completely separate planets from their popularity status. Unfortunately, with great popularity comes even greater drama, and it's only a matter of time before their skeletons start tumbling out.
Troian Bellisario as Lucille "Lulu" Franklin: Lulu is the ring-leader of the "IN" crowd. Heiress to the Franklin hotels and resort fortune, she is the one that every girl at Valley High wants to be and every boy wants to have. Although she may not be the nicest girl around, she is a caring friend to those close to her. Lulu can either be your best friend or your worst enemy.
Hayley Kiyoko as Sloan Wu: Not just another pretty face with an amazing fashion sense, Sloan has a brain to match her beauty. One of the top rankers in her class Sloan has big plans for her junior year, starting with running for Student Council President. Now if only she could slow down her partying and drinking habits she's be too good to be true.
Joe Jonas as Marlton "Marney" Vega: Marney can be considered the only "normal" one of his clique. He's smart, athletic, kind, and the gay son of one of the most homophobic men in all of Cheyenne Valley. Now juggling to keep his sexuality a secret from his father, his relationship with her brother from his best friend, and the fact that his family is slowly surely going bankrupt away from everyone else, the last thing Marney has time for his high school politics.
Chris Zylka as Austin Wyatt: Valley High's own superstar. Austin and Lulu ended their eight-month relationship messily over the course of summer break. Playboy extraordinaire who always gets what he wants, Austin refuses to give up until he has Lulu right back where he wants her.
SUPPORTING and RECURRING CAST:
Shani Pride as Mara Wilson: Beautiful, spoilt, and conceited, Mara transfers in to Valley High from prestigious DuMont Private in Spain determined to stir up trouble, and take over Lulu’s spot as ring-leader of the IN crowd as she had been at her old school.
Brock Kelly as Luke Dawson: Valley High’s bad boy. Luke is notorious for his I-could-care-less attitude about, well, everything. No one knows a lot about him other than he’s the last guy that you want as an enemy. Quick-tempered and secretive, Luke has big plans for his junior year at Valley as well.
Wesley Morgan as Jones Franklin: Lulu’s senior older brother, Jones secretly began dating Marney over the course of summer vacation. The two agree to keep their relationship under wraps for both their sakes as Jones has yet to come out publicly and Marney doesn’t want Lulu to know. Unfortunately, these aren’t the least of their worries when they realize that keeping their relationship a secret is the least of their problems.

Okay, so, basically this is my first.... semi-successful attempt at my own little production or whatever ;D I've actually basically completed the pilot besides maybe one and half page left to go. Honestly, I tried to go for an hour-length series but I seriously got to page 27 and.... that was it, so, I figured it was meant to be and that I should go ahead and make this a half-hour show since it is my first attempt and all. I'll try to go for the full hour when I'm more experienced.
This is going to be a Drama series 'cause I figured there was WAY too much Supernatural going on and I just wanted to do something a little different so I came up with Drama, and when that wasn't original enough the idea that you always see shows based upon groups of outcast or "normies" like most of us and thus The "IN" Crowd was born.
So, if this pitch is well received and I get enough interest I figured I'd post a teaser to see if you guys know what you're getting yourselves into ;D
