Nick Green is a government operative, part of an elite, covert force of 64 highly trained U.S. military personnel. He’s a deadly assassin with an appreciation for blondes and a dislike for their overprotective boyfriends. And he’s a junior in high school. Green must carefully balance innate, 17-year-old hormones and teenage drama while executing his hits.
So goes the premise for Aim High, a web series from executive producer Peter Murrietta, producer McG, creators Heath Corson and Richie Keen, and financiers Warner Premiere and Dolphin Entertainment. The program – which is one of three upcoming online originals from Warner Bros. short-form digital content arm – just announced its cast list will feature a number of actors popular with the teenybopper crowd.
Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale in the Twilight Saga) will take on the role of Green. Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor on Friday Night Lights) will play the object of Green’s affections, the charming Amanda Miles. Other members of the Aim High Cast include:
Aim High also stars Rebecca Mader (Lost) as Nick’s sultry science teacher Ms. Walker, Johnny Pemberton (Megadrive) as the well-connected best friend Marcus, Clancy Brown (Highlander) as Russian mercenary Boris the Bear, Jonathan McDaniel (That’s So Raven) as Amanda’s jealous boyfriend and swim team captain Derek Long, and Greg Germann (Ally McBeal) as the protective Vice Principal Ockenhocker.
No distributors or advertisers are currently attached to the project, but SVP and General Manager of Warner Premiere, Eva Davis told me earlier this month to expect to hear more announcements of that nature in the near future.
