Former GENERAL HOSPITAL executive producer Jill Farren Phelps has teamed up with veteran soap scribe and producer Josh Griffith (ONE LIFE TO LIVE, AS THE WORLD TURNS, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) to create a new soap opera! Nickelodeon has ordered 80 episodes of REACH FOR A STAR, an adaptation of the popular Mexican telenovela ALCANZAR UNA ESTRELLA, to debut on their Nick At Nite block this summer.

REACH FOR A STAR is a single-camera, daily series that will follow Loren, an average high school senior whose life changes completely upon becoming a star and winning the love of her celebrity crush. Casting is currently underway, with production due to start in March.
