About Aim High

Aim High is the story of a young man leading a double life -- juggling his studies by day and serving as a government agent by night. This series chronicles the life of Nick Green, a junior who's just starting a new school year as one of the country's 64 highly trained teenage operatives.

When he's not handling international spies, Nick is dreaming of Amanda Miles, the most popular girl in school, who's cool, intelligent and very alluring. Amanda mercilessly flirts with Nick, but before he can enjoy her advances he has to avoid Derek, her overly protective boyfriend who threatens him for even looking at her.

Aim High comes from Director and Producer McG (Chuck, Charlie's Angels) and Wonderland Sound and Vision. Production services are being provided by Bandito Brothers. Peter Murrieta, who served as Executive Producer for the mega-hit series Wizards of Waverly Place, is Executive Producer. Mary Viola, Andy Shapiro, Jackson Rathbone, Bill O'Dowd, Jim Henrie and Philip von Alvensleben also serve as Executive Producers. The series is written and created by Heath Corson (Living with Abandon, Scary Godmother) and Richie Keen (Living with Abandon), who also serve as Executive Producers, directed by Thor Freudenthal (Hotel for Dogs, Diary of a Wimpy Kid), and produced by Lance Sloane (Yucatan) and McG.

Aim High is being financed and distributed by Warner Bros.
