The show centers on Kacey Simon (Cymphonique Miller), a popular girl whose status goes down after she must briefly wear braces and glasses. Ignored by the mean girls, Kacey finds a new way to express herself, through music by becoming the lead singer of the pop-rock band Gravity 5 with Stevie (Lulu Antariksa), Zander (Max Schneider), Kevin (Christopher O'Neal and Nelson (Noah Crawford). The band's success begins a rivalry with The Perfs featuring her former best friends Molly (Samantha Boscarino) and Grace (Halston Sage). Here at Brewster High, anything is possible, who knows what crazy things will happen?


Main characters

  • Kacey Simon (Cymphonique Miller) is former queen of The Perfs, now lead singer of Gravity 5, Kacey Simon is confident, bold, and beautiful and now on a constant campaign to take her new friends and band mates to the top of the school social ladder. She can sing, she can dance, and she's proving to Gravity 5 that she also knows how to be a true friend, but sometimes her plans might go a bit too far.
  • Molly Garfunkel (Samantha Boscarino) is the new Queen of the Perfs after Kacey Simon left them for Gravity 5. Molly is every bit as confident, popular and beautiful as Kacey, but she's also an evil mastermind plotting to bury Kacey once and for all.
  • Zander Robbins (Max Schneider) is the new kid in school and guitarist for Gravity 5. Zander is cool, handsome and perhaps sometimes a little vain, but he is also confident, loyal and the voice of reason among his band of friends. He is also very close to fellow band member Stevie
  • Stevie Baskara (Lulu Antariksa) is Gravity 5's smart, beautiful, no-nonsense bass player. The guys love her because she is cool, but fear her because she can and will crush them. She is very protective of her friends and likes to be noticed and understood. She is also very close to fellow band member Zander
  • Grace King (Halston Sage) is queen bee Molly's gorgeous but naïve sidekick, in the mean girl group The Perfs. Although she tries to follow Molly's evil lead, Grace just doesn't have it in her to be mean. She has a crush on Nelson.
  • Nelson Baxter (Noah Crawford) is the tech-savvy, sci-fi loving keyboard player and DJ for Gravity 5. Nelson is confident when talking about the ladies, but completely tongue-tied when he is face to face with them. He has a crush on Grace.
  • Kevin Reed (Christopher O'Neal) is the drummer for Gravity 5. Besides being constantly hungry and constantly sweating, he is awkward with the ladies but athletic enough to make every sports team just not good enough to actually play. Though things might start off on the wrong foot, somehow he manages to make everything better.

Recurring characters

  • Andy Bartlet (Jacob Houston) is a student who goes to Brewster High School. He is constantly in everyone's business and very awkward to be around. He has a crush on Stevie who thinks he is disgusting when he tries to flirt with her.
  • Mr. March (Kirk Fox) is the history teacher at Brewster High School and head of a few departments. Although he is a teacher, he portrays a very bad attitude as an educator.
