Almost everyone wants to be famous, but few possess the talent, drive and luck to make their dream come true. At the Public Academy for Performing Arts (PAPA), the most prestigious performing arts college in the country, getting past the brutal audition process is just the beginning. The few who make it in face four years of hard work, sacrifice and pain. Some of these young hopefuls are bound to get broken along the way, but a few are destined for stardom. When they were eight-years-old, shy but surprisingly talented Zoe and her golden boy best friend (and secret crush) Eddie made a pact to audition for PAPA together. Now that they're here, they're up against fierce competition, like Georgia, a Britney Spears wannabe with talent and drive to burn, who definitely catches Eddie's eye. There's also amazing hip hop dancer Kevin, who has nowhere else to go, and Romeo, a musician and street kid who wants to get in for his talent, not for his story. And then there's Jazz, a dancer who's secretly hoping to reconnect with her birth mother. These young hopefuls auditioning for the school aren't the only ones with troubles. Newly-appointed artistic director David Laddeman has always played second fiddle to his best friend, megalomaniac Vincent Marlowe (think Simon Cowell times 10). When Vincent leaves to star in a movie, it looks like David can finally run things his way and try to woo Vincent's ex-wife, famous choreographer Nina Khari. But when Vincent blows his big comeback, he returns to the school with a vengeance. Fame heads to college in this sexy new ensemble drama from mega-talents producer McG, music producer Pharrell and choreographer Fatima Robinson. This school is definitely going to rock as it puts the dreamers right where they belong... in the "Limelight"
