(from MTV's web site, September 2008) Welcome to Cypress Bay High School -- home of the award-winning newspaper The Circuit. Its fiercely competitive student staff exhibits the aptitude, pride and ambition of future leaders, and they want the world to know it. Between struggling to keep the peace with each other, maintaining good grades and managing extracurricular activities, these students have their hands full. But they still put their hearts and souls into writing memorable stories and making the best paper they possibly can. Every day, the paper's dynamic personalities battle it out to see who has what it takes to produce news that's fit to print. Journalism is taken very seriously at The Circuit, and its staff is a truly ambitious bunch. For many soon-to-be seniors, it's time to battle it out for the position of editor-in-chief. But only one will score the top slot. Meet Amanda, the paper's copy editor. She checks the grammar and flow of all the stories, but she prefers to oversee everything. Amanda sees herself as enthusiastic and driven, but some staffers think she's on a power trip. To win them over, she may have to learn some tough lessons. Amanda will face-off against her good friend, Alex, the paper's sports editor. Alex, who's a friend to everyone, is a gifted writer but he's looking to branch out and cover more ground as a journalist -- and as editor-in-chief. Then there's the business manager, Adam, who has a flair for the dramatic. Adam doesn't do anything halfway, which is exactly why he thinks he has a good shot at becoming editor-in-chief. Also in the running is Giana. She's the paper's clubs editor and although a strong contender for editor-in-chief, she sometimes gets distracted by her co-worker and boyfriend, Trevor. Speaking of Trevor, you can never count him out. As a math genius and layout king, he's always angling in on something. Trevor, along with Cassia, the staff's most vocal activist, and Dan, the staff's most vocal, well, the staff's most vocal... you never know who will come out on top. The pressure is on at The Circuit to become the paper's "Big E." But as the drama unfolds, who'll excel and who'll have a meltdown? And once the decision is made, will they stay friends till the end? Find out what it takes to build an editorial team and run an award- winning paper. Follow the staff of The Circuit from beginning to end, from brainstorming to getting the pages to the printer. And with a new editor-in-chief in charge, watch the drama unfold!
