HELLCATS ON ETC!
Just when I thought I’d never see Ashley Tisdale on TV again, here she goes rah-rah-rah-ing in sporty cheerleader attire.
HELLCATS, one of the newest US shows airing on ETC will set everyone’s Wednesday nights on fire beginning September 15, 2010, 8PM.
The show revolves around Marti Perkins(Alyson Michalka), a smart pre-law student at Memphis Lancer University, who is at the brink of losing her scholarship due to financial constraints. The only way for her to continue her degree is to get an unconventional scholarship by joining the cheerleading team.
With a background in gymnastics, Marti braves the try-outs and impresses most of the team despite an unpleasant first encounter with cheerleading captain Savannah Monroe (Ashley Tisdale). The team badly needs a new member in time for the championships, after assistant cheer captain Alice Verdura (Heather Hemmens) injures herself.
The series also stars Robbie Jones as Lewis Flynn, one of the Hellcats’ bases and a former football player who instantly warms up to Marti, Matt Barr as Dan Patch, Marti’s bestfriend who secretly has a crush on her.
Hellcats is based on the book Cheer: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders and is produced by Kevin Murphy and “Superman” Tom Welling.
Catch Hellcats on ETC every Wednesday at 8pm. ETC is seen on SBN Channel 21, Sky cable Ch. 16, Destiny Cable Ch. 28 and Cable Link Ch. 15.
