EW: “American High is reality TV’s class act.”
In the August 4 edition of Entertainment Weekly (stories aren’t online until next week), Dan Snierson looks at American High, the show’s main cast, and the process its creators went through. Among highlights: The 12 or so main cast members are a part of a 25 person independent study class the producers formed; each student was given a digital video camera to film themselves and their lives when one of two camera crews was not around. Cast members include angst-ridden Morgan, “boy-shy” Suzy, label-rejecting Anna, out-of-the-closet Brad and his jock best friend Robby.
