The Story: HOMESCHOOLED is an online sitcom in the vein of ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘Saved by the Bell!’ After getting himself expelled from high school, a delinquent teenager discovers that all the things that he hated about high school followed him home. The show is a high school comedy with the archetypal high school roles played by family members. There’s a bully, a nerd, a queen bee, a punk, a strict teacher, and even a dick principal- all under the same roof.
Homeschooled revolves around Mickey, who sports a Zack Morris/Ferris Bueller type cynicism and charm. Due to poor grades, poor attitude (and drug use) Mickey is kicked out of high school and finds himself being taught at home by his mother and elderly stepfather with a big chip on his shoulder against him. He also has to put up with his bully of a gardener, wunderkind of a little brother and an ostentatious stepsister. And then there’s the young, punk-clad maid, whom Mickey has taken quite the liking to. Despite all of these distractions making his life a live-in hell, Mickey does his best to retaliate by any means necessary.
The Bottom Line: A witty comedy with a great lead and well-rounded supporting cast, Homeschooled is a fun show I definitely recommend you check out.
The Info: Homeschooled is currently streaming their six episode first season on their website, and are starting to air the series on KoldCast. You can also follow them on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Check out episode 1 below!
