What do you get when you mix a show, drama and Nickelodeon all together? You get the new Nick at Nite drama Hollywood Heights! Here's the skinny on the show: Loren Tate (One Life to Live's Brittany Underwood) is a shy teen whose musical aspirations get closer to reality when she wins a songwriting contest for rock star Eddie Duran (Cody Longo). While Loren and Eddie's partnership (on-stage as well as off) is constantly tested by drama, their strong family bonds keep them inspired to keep going forward. Loren finds support in her single mom Nora (Jama Williamson), as Nora returns to the dating scene for the first time in years. Meanwhile, Eddie's bond with his father (Carlos Ponce) is challenged by Eddie's romance with the manipulative actress Chloe (Melissa Ordway). As Loren starts to rise in the music scene and Eddie's time in the spotlight is numbered, the two learn that the road to stardom comes with a hefty price tag. Justin Wilczynski also stars as Eddie's bitter old friend Tyler Rorke.
