SYNOPSIS: Featuring Alia Shawkat ("Arrested Development") and Raviv Ullman ("Phil of the Future"), Prom Wars is a hilarious teen comedy that tells the story of a fierce competition between two warring boys schools pitted against each other in a battle for the most elusive high school prize of all: a prom date with the girls from ACS the hottest, most brilliant and sought-after senior class of private schoolgirls in the Easthill vicinity.
   
When sharp-witted high school knockout Diana Riggs (Shawkat) comes to the realization that she is either being taken for granted, objectified or disrespected by the boys in her life notably Percy Collins (Ullman), her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend, as well as his personal nemesis, the über-rich Geoffrey Atridge she decides to turn things around: in the name of all high school girls who've had to suffer the unacceptable injustices instigated by teenage boys, she calls upon her team of gorgeous ACS prefects and provokes a war between the Selby private school for boys and their Lancaster rivals. The winner in a series of designated competitions will be awarded exclusive rights to the girls as prom dates.
