"High School is hard." That is a catch phrase that could be used for the new web-based series, Aim High, which will premiere in 2011. The series revolves around the double life of a high school student, who is also a dangerous spy. It is executive produced by Terminator Salvation director McG. The series stars actor Jackson Rathbone, best known for his roles in The Last Airbender and the Twilight films, as high school student/international spy, Nick Green. We recently had a chance to exclusively visit the set of Aim High while they were shooting and speak with actor Jackson Rathbone about the new project.

Aim High is the story of a young man leading a double life - juggling his studies by day and serving as a government agent by night. This series chronicles the life of Nick Green (Jackson Rathbone), a sophomore who's just starting a new school year as one of the country's sixty-four highly trained teenage operatives. When he's not handling international spies, Nick is dreaming of Amanda Meyers, the most popular girl in school who's cool, intelligent and very alluring. Amanda mercilessly flirts with Nick, but before he can enjoy her advances he has to avoid Derek, her overly protective boyfriend who threatens him for even looking at her. To make things more complicated, Nick just blew a hit on a Russian mercenary and now he's out to take revenge on Nick. On top of that Nick also discovers he has an "in" with Amanda but his best friend is planning to post a salacious rumor about her on his blog. All in all, it's going to be a rough semester.
