"Real issues. Real problems. Real conflicts. Real kids. This fall, take a close-up look at the 9th graders of Chatsworth High School, as they navigate the strange new terrain that is high school. The jock, the nerd, the class clown, the drama queen - they're all here, and their lives unfold on camera as we journey with them through an intense period of adjustment and adaptation. Targeted at teenagers, this 14-part documentary series follows a dozen teens as they experience the highs and lows of this important year in their young lives, capturing some remarkably candid moments on film and offers a rare glimpse into the lives and minds of young teenagers without adult editorializing."
