AS THE WORLD TURNS and ANOTHER WORLD star Grayson McCouch has landed a role on the new Nick at Nite soap currently in production, HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS.
McCouch will play Don Masters, a surgeon and the father to Loren’s (Brittany Underwood) high-school nemesis, Adriana (Hunter King). He owns the clinic where Nora (Jama Williamson) works, but their relationship may turn into something more than just professional.
Nickelodeon, in partnership with Televisa, ordered 80 episodes of the show, a one-hour U.S. adaptation of the popular Mexican telenovela, REACH FOR A STAR (Alcanzar una Estrella), for Nick at Nite in January.
HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS is a single-camera, daily series following a teenage girl whose life changes completely when she becomes a star and wins the love of her teen idol. Reach for a Star will be produced in association with Sony Pictures Television and is set to premiere later this year on Nickelodeon’s nighttime block for families – Nick at Nite. Production began in March in Los Angeles.
The cast includes Brittany Underwood, Melissa Ordway, Cody Longo, Justin Wilczynski and James Franco.
HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS is a co-production with Televisa and is being produced by Sony Television. The series will be co-executive produced by six-time Emmy Award-winner Jill Farren Phelps (GENERAL HOSPITAL, SANTA BARBARA) and Hisham Abed (THE HILLS; THE CITY). Josh Griffith (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS; AS THE WORLD TURNS) will serve as head writer.
