La nouvelle série Rock Academy débarque sur NICKELODEON. Regarde l'avant première le 4 novembre à 18h10 !
The gifted students of William B. Travis Prep School are in for the lesson of a lifetime in Nickelodeon's all-new show, School of Rock!
When their teacher, Mrs. Calpakis (Vernee Watson) suffers an unfortunate skateboarding spill, Mr. Finn, a down-on-his-luck musician, steps in. Little do the group of overachieving rule-abiding students know - their new substitute actually rocks!
With their musical talents combined, this class of classically-trained musicians forms a band complete with headbanging beats and face-melting solos. But if they want to live the rock star life, they'll have to band together, take risks and rock out to reach new heights all whilst keeping the whole thing a secret.
Throughout the school year, these middle-school classmates find themselves navigating relationships, discovering their unknown talents and learning lessons on loyalty and friendships. With Mr. Finn's help, they'll discover that working together isn't just cool, it rocks!
In the series premiere of School of Rock, "Come Together", the class are introduced to their substitute teacher Mr. Finn, who quickly gives his students nicknames!
