Season 1

What if you could watch the next great American president grow up?

That question is the idea behind this drama series from Greg Berlanti (Everwood, Dawson's Creek), Mickey Liddell (Everwood, Go) and Emmy Award winner Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing, Ally McBeal).

Jack and Bobby McCallister are two bright young brothers growing up under the watchful eye of their eccentric single mother, Grace McCallister.

Grace's personality is a force of nature that will shape both of these young men's lives and secure one a place in the history books - as President of the United States.

Jack is the big brother everyone wishes for. A natural hero and born leader, he seems to have everything going for him. He is the perfect role model for Bobby, who, with a big heart and quick intellect, is nonetheless an undeniable social misfit.

Bobby is caught between the rival forces of his mother and his brother, and it's impossible to please them both.

The arrival of a new college president and his beautiful daughter impacts the lives of all three McCallisters. In Peter Benedict, Grace has met not only her new boss but an intellectual equal. Peter's teenage daughter, Courtney, soon strikes up a friendship with Jack and forms a special bond with Bobby.

But the brothers eventually learn that the brave front Courtney presents to the world hides a painful family secret.

Peter is a brilliant businessman with questionable character, and Grace finds herself both attracted to and repelled by him.

Another pivotal figure in Jack's and Bobby's childhoods is Jack's best friend, Marcus Ride. Son of the owner of J.R., a popular neighbourhood gathering spot, Marcus is close to Jack, but their relationship is also highly competitive.

Over time, their friendship will be tested repeatedly.
