James Franco will make his debut on Nick at Nite’s primetime family drama “Hollywood Heights” at 8 p.m. Friday, June 29.
Franco will appear in a multi-episode arc during the season as Osborne “Oz” Silver, an eccentric movie mogul who loves making films and lives life to the fullest, often outrageously, doing whatever it takes to make the movies he wants, according to a news release.
A summary of the series, provided by Nickelodeon, is as follows:
Derived from the popular Mexican telenovela, “Alcanzar una Estrella,” “Hollywood Heights” follows 18-year-old Loren Tate (Brittany Underwood, “One Life to Live”) on her path from shy high school senior to superstar on the rise as she wins the love of her rock idol (Cody Longo, “Fame”). 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.
