Antoine (Andrew Barth Feldman), a foreign exchange student at North High, cannot help but flirt with Ashlyn. Howie (Roman Banks), a hyper-smart, bespectacled, adorkable high school junior, gets close to a certain Wildcat or two while working after school as a delivery guy for Big Red's family's pizza shop, Salt Lake Slices. And Lily (Olivia Rose Keegan) is a sugary sweet, energetic East High student who wants nothing more than to be on-stage with the Wildcats, but her sweetness masks her highly competitive nature.
