FROM INAPPROPRIATE CRUSHES AND BULLYING TO RACIAL EQUALITY AND THE PROM, THIS SPECIALLY-PRICED COLLECTION OF LIFETIME MOVIES TACKLES REAL-LIFE ISSUES FOR TODAY'S TEENS
Just in time for back to school, A+E explores the highs and lows of high school for today's teen with Surviving High School, a specially priced collection of Lifetime Original Movies.
Each film, featuring an all-star cast with talents such as Raven-Symone ("The Cosby Show"), David Charvet ("Baywatch", "Melrose Place"), Boti Bliss ("CSI: Miami"), Lisa Vidal ("The Division", "ER"), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids series) and Sharon Lawrence ("NYPD Blue"), tackles everything from drinking and drugs, prom, chrushes (and not always appropriate ones), racial equality and bullying. It's a veritable high school survivor kit!
The Lifetime Original Movies include:
Odd Girl Out, based on the national best seller of the same name, examines the secret world of girl aggression and bullying. Follow Vanessa (Alexa Vega), a popular and well adjusted middle schooler, as her friends suddenly turn on her and she becomes the target of nasty rumors and evil pranks. When her mother (Lisa Vidal) learns the painful truth about her daughter's situation she confronts the troubling behavior.
Augusta, Gone, is based on a true story and follows the life of Augusta, a teenager who spins out of control once she hits 15. Augusta's drinking and drug use compels her divorced, working mother to go to extremes to try and help her.
The Perfect Teacher, starring Megan Park as Devon Burke, is about a spoiled and beautiful high school student who always gets what she wants. And what she wants most is her handsome math professor Jim Wilkes, (David Charvet). She will stop at nothing to make sure they end up together and won't take "no" for an answer.
For One Night was inspired by the true story of an African American teenager (Raven-Symone) who shook up a small town where high school proms had been racially segregated for decades. It's the story of two women, a student and a reporter (Aisha Tyler), who attempt to reverse a long-standing racist tradition and make history, at least for one night.
