HELLCATS follows Marti Perkins who finds herself competing for a spot on Lancer University’s cheer squad to rectify her financial setback after her scholarship comes to a screeching halt.

The squad must work together despite the drama to win the national title and be atop of cheerleading supremacy, and Marti has to give it all she has to make her dreams come true.

Based on the book Cheer! Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders by Kate Torgovnick and produced by Emmy® Award winner Kevin Murphy (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) and actor Tom Welling (SMALLVILLE). HELLCATS is punchy and upbeat with a soundtrack worth cheering for.

In the series premiere “A World Full of Strangers,” resourceful and spirited Marti Perkins (Alyson Michalka) is forced to apply for the Hellcats cheer squad at Memphis’ Lancer University to secure a scholarship and keep her place in school. Marti is shocked to see rival Savannah Monroe (Ashley Tisdale) is the Hellcat captain and holds the key to her fate.
