‘Hollywood Heights’ A Great New Primetime Soap, Grayson McCouch Truly The Gem In This Crown Of Great Actors, Highlight Hollywood News 

JUNE 26, 2012   TOMMY LIGHTFOOT GARRETT  

 

Stop the presses. The critics be damned. Nick At Night’s “Hollywood Heights” is a great show, picking up the speed from the daytime soap genre, with a Telenova spin to it. Sony has asked for 80 episodes, and so far they are going just grand.  Filmed in L.A. by Televisa in association with Sony Pictures Television, it’s helmed by former “General Hospital” executive producer Jill Farren Phelps, who should be credited with “GH’s” mega-Emmy Award wins over the past weekend. But being a woman, the industry is slow to give this lady her due.  “Hollywood Heights” is co-executive produced by Hisham Abed and  Josh Griffith,  produced by Jonathan Fishman, directed by Owen Renfroe, and Griffith is also the head writer.   What could make this series a real hit? More of actor Grayson McCouch, who portrays Dr. Dan Masters.

McCouch’s scenes with TV daughter are so amazing. Watching Grayson play a dad of a teenage girl is hard to believe, as he’s still as handsome and youthful as his early days on “Another World” as another doctor. This one, Dr. Morgan Winthrop. And what about that eerie doctor he played on Aaron Spelling’s “All Souls”? Well, whatever he plays, he’s brilliant, and we all miss him from the CBS soap “As The World Turns,” which CBS stupidly replaced with “The Talk.” But that’s all water over the damn, and as Susan Lucci said on Saturday night, “Don’t cry for what has happened, smile for what has been!”

There is plenty to smile about on “Hollywood Heights,” with so many rich and fascinating young characters on the show.  But thankfully Jill Farren Phelps is smart, and probably realizes that even though the young kids are hot, that they cannot handle the heavy lifting a series like “HH” will need to carry it past the initial run and into a long-successful series. Grayson McCouch can do just that.  He does more with so little than any actor in this current era.  The star has appeared on the silver screen, on daytime TV, primetime TV and has conquered the NYC stage as well.  Grayson is gifted beyond any of the show’s current players, and that includes the superbly talented James Franco. Franco is sublime, but there is something just charismatic about McCouch’s leading man persona. Perhaps it’s his work ethic. There isn’t an actor or anyone on the planet who works so hard at being the best, Grayson however makes it look easy, and we know it’s anything but.

“Hollywood Heights” has had a magnificent start. Don’t pay attention to the naysayers. They have nothing good to say about (Soaps). But Jill Farren Phelps has some great veterans on the show now, and she needs to focus more on them, and yes, give us the pretty girls, the hunky guys, but none of them have half the talent, good looks or on screen charisma as Grayson McCouch has.

Some critics have complained that there hasn’t been a villain coming out of the storyline the way they like to see soaps do.  But that’s because Farren Phelps and her genius writers are slowly building up to that.  Perhaps Grayson could be one? Phelps needs to be given time to create characters that we care about, so that when one or two or more turn lethal, the audience will be invested. Critics of daytime soaps and primetimes soaps rarely get this about our genre. It needs a slow simmering-style of writing.  When the time comes, we know that we can trust the producers and writers to focus on a bad guy or gal.  But until then, give us more of Grayson McCouch, he can carry this show and he’s the most well-suited for this genre, than anyone else on the canvas currently.

Brittany Underwood is also one of the rising stars on this series.

“Hollywood Heights” airs at 9 p.m. on Nick at Nite.

This Friday, June 29, at 9:00 P.M. (ET/PT), actor James Franco will make his debut on Nick at Nite’s brand-new primetime family drama, Hollywood Heights.  

Appearing in a multi-episode arc - Franco stars as Osborne "Oz" Silver, an eccentric movie mogul who lives life to the fullest, often outrageously.  

Offbeat, seductive and ruthless when he has to be, Oz adores making movies and does whatever it takes to make the films he wants.  We hope you will cover in advance of his debut this Friday night.

With an ensemble cast featuring telenovela star Carlos Ponce (Couples Retreat), each hour-long episode reveals the ups and downs of dealing with friends, family, love and the pursuit of their dreams.

Hollywood Heights special preview beginning Monday, June 11.  The debut episode will encore every night at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) through Friday, June 15, with the series premiering on Monday, June 18 at 9:00 P.M. (ET/PT). 

Adapted for a U.S. audience from the wildly popular Mexican telenovela Alcanzar una Estrella, Hollywood Heights follows the journey of a teenage girl whose life changes drastically when she becomes a star and wins the love of her rock and roll idol, and both are tested by setbacks, heartbreak and deception.  The first season of the 80-episode series, co-produced with Televisa in association with Sony Pictures Television, will air weeknights at 9p.m. through October 2012.

Hollywood Heights centers on Loren Tate (Brittany Underwood, One Life to Live), a shy teen whose musical aspirations inch closer to reality when she wins a songwriting contest sponsored by Eddie Duran (Cody Longo, Fame), a rock star at the top of his game.  Although Loren and Eddie’s budding partnership – on-stage and off – faces obstacles, their strong family bonds inspire them to keep going.  Loren finds the support system she needs in her single mom, Nora (Jama Williamson, Parks and Recreation), as Nora returns to the dating scene for the first time in years.  Meanwhile Eddie’s unbreakable bond with his father, Max (Carlos Ponce, Couples Retreat, telenovela actor/singer) – strengthened by family tragedy – is challenged by Eddie’s budding romance with a beautiful, but manipulative model and aspiring actress, Chloe Carter (Melissa Ordway, 17 Again).  As Loren begins a meteoric rise on the music scene and Eddie’s star begins to fade, together they learn that the road to love and stardom often carries a heavy price tag.  Justin Wilczynski (Kaya) also stars as Eddie’s bitter former friend, Tyler Rorke.

The series is executive produced by six-time Emmy Award-winner Jill Farren Phelps (General Hospital, One Life to Live) and co-executive produced by Hisham Abed (The Hills and The City) and Josh Griffith (Young and the Restless, As the World Turns) who also serves as head writer. 

Phelps has worked as an executive producer at all three major broadcast networks producing daytime dramas, for a total of five programs.  She began her television career on Santa Barbara where she ultimately rose to Executive Producer and later served as Executive Producer on Guiding Light before going to Another World in the same capacity.  Afterward, Phelps returned to ABC Daytime serving as Executive Producer of One Life to Live and later moved to executive produce General Hospital from 2001-2011.

On May 30, NickatNite.com will launch its Hollywood Heights show site, which will include a ‘Character Connection’ section for viewers to get to know the new series’ characters.  Viewers can keep up with the show on Twitter by following @HHBuzz.

‘Hollywood Heights’ on Nickelodeon, With James Franco

<nyt_byline>

It is not a spoiler alert to say that at some point in the next few weeks on “Hollywood Heights” Eddie and Loren will finally get together.

Loren Tate is an insecure high school senior with a gift for coffeehouse folk. Eddie Duran is a pop megastar with a soft spot for maudlin lyrics. Everything about “Hollywood Heights,” which began last month and is being shown every weeknight into October on Nickelodeon, is intended to ensure that these two incomplete people find in each other what they lack: for Loren confidence and fame, for Eddie a purity of soul that’s been mangled by his celebrity.

“Hollywood Heights” is billed as an English-language telenovela, based on the Mexican show “Alcanzar una Estrella” (“To Reach a Star”). There have of course been English-language telenovelas before. They’re called soap operas. But unlike Spanish-language originals, which can be convoluted and veer off in unanticipated directions, there are almost no detours on “Hollywood Heights,” which boils down to two parallel stories that slowly — very slowly — converge in the middle. The show’s five-times-a-week schedule means that there’s far more television to watch, even though there are far fewer directions for it to go in.

Eddie — played by Cody Longo, who displays the emotional hooligan contradictions of a young Jason Gedrick — is a dreamer saddled with a gold-digger girlfriend, Chloe (Melissa Ordway); a fun-hating taskmaster of a manager, Jake (Brandon Bell); and millions of fans who won’t let him be. Among them is Loren (a dewy Brittany Underwood), who, goaded by her chatterbox best friend, Mel (Ashley Holliday), and her sympathetic bombshell mom, Nora (Jama Williamson), is hoping to get Eddie’s attention with her lyrics, which she enters in a songwriting contest and sends to him on Twitter.

And it’s on the Internet that the two first meet, though its just a Twitter handle Eddie falls for. What makes this telenovela modern, however notionally, is its embrace of technology. Over the first three weeks of the show there’s been theft of electronic equipment, Twitter romance, hacking of a school computer, hacking of the hacker’s computer, and more.

Even though the melodrama, highly structured scripting and stilted camera shots are indebted to the telenovela form, “Hollywood Heights” owes the most to the rat-tat-tat rhythms of “Gilmore Girls.” Loren and her mom are made in the Rory and Lorelei mold, and Mel, with her “Toddlers & Tiaras” jokes, is a worthy, if grating, Lane knockoff. And there’s music snobbery, thanks to the all-in-one computer nerd and music geek Adam (Nick Krause), to whom Loren has to defend her idol, Eddie, with the impressively misaligned defense, “Pitchfork says that his new sound puts him in a class with Girls and Cut Copy.”

Like any good telenovela “Hollywood Heights” has its share of villains and interlopers: Eddie’s father, Max (Carlos Ponce, whose Spanish accent slips out in scenes where he has to do more than just purr or mope), who hopes to end his son’s relationship; Tyler (Justin Wilczynski), who maintains an affair with Chloe, and an unhealthy fixation on Eddie; and Don (Grayson McCouch, whose features all gather at the middle of his face, in that Clooney way), Nora’s boss, who’s a terrible single father and possibly a serial workplace sexual harasser. These one-note characters exist largely to mirror the main players or to make them appear more righteous by contrast.

In the spirit of telenovela viewing I set out to watch “Hollywood Heights” every night at its appointed time, a relapse to pre-time-shifted viewing habits and an accession to the wishes of programmers, who hope that one story is worth checking in with five times a week.

The problems with this plan began with the first broadcast, on June 19. I’d had a bit of insomnia the night before and ended up napping through the premiere. I watched it later that night — no harm, no foul.

But anything could be a disruption — dinner plans, a concert, a desire to sit somewhere other than in front of the television. Before long, episodes began to pile up in the DVR like incomplete homework assignments. I started grabbing them in batches, two and three at a time, sometimes during meals or during fits of returning weeks of unanswered e-mail.

Fortunately telenovelas, with their rote acting and easy-to-follow and heavily repeated plotlines, are ideal background viewing. There was no escaping that while an hour a night made for an untenable time commitment, there was still a warm familiarity to visiting the show in big gulps, more satisfying than the weekly heavy-breathing countdown to new episodes of “The Newsroom” or “Mad Men.” Whenever the urge struck, there were almost certainly episodes yet to watch. It was comfort TV with narrative soul.

What awoke me from that pleasant semi-slumber was, naturally, James Franco.

At the end of the show’s second week Eddie was being courted for a movie role by a square-seeming executive. Turns out, though, that he was working for Oz, a mad movie mogul, played by Mr. Franco, wealthy enough to hire Eddie for a film but not sensible enough to make use of a comb.

Oz hasn’t gotten much screen time yet, but when he’s there, Mr. Franco chews more than his share of scenery, which turns out to be a necessary strategy. In an environment like this, in which all the performances have soft edges, and no one is steering the scenes too aggressively, acting out is the only sort of acting that gets noticed. His frazzled energy isn’t realistic but is instead fantastical and a running commentary on the stiltedness of the rest of the proceedings.

After a second appearance, though, Mr. Franco began to feel less like a welcome interloper and more like a prankster, aware of the limitations of those around him and throwing off enough glare to keep the focus firmly on himself. But even Mr. Franco is probably no match for the impending radiance of Loren and Eddie, a sunbeam no Hollywood prankster, real or fictional, can disrupt.
