Synopsis

Amy Juergens (Shailene Woodley) is a smart and talented girl who plays the French horn in the school marching band. Her life is turned upside down when she discovers that she is pregnant with Ricky Underwood’s (Daren Kagasoff) child.

Luckily, her best friends Madison and Lauren are there to support her all the way.

The only problem is that Amy couldn’t find the right timing to reveal to her would-be boyfriend Ben Boykewich (Kenny Baumann) her present situation.

Ricky Underwood, on the other hand, is the school’s resident bad boy known for his womanizing. He never plays by the rules and is often seen hanging out with the band’s sexy majorette Adrian Lee (Francia Raisa).

Being the school’s resident bad girl, Adrian is just about the perfect pair for Ricky. With her flight attendant mom seldom at home, she gets to break the rules with anyone she chooses to be with. Her only problem is she wants to get serious with Ricky.

Meanwhile, Grace Bowman (Megan Park) is the wholesome cheerleader coveted by every guy in school. She is in a steady relationship with her long-time boyfriend Jack Pappas (Greg Finley).

A devoted Christian, she pledged to wait until she gets married before doing it with Jack. Her parents even gave her a promise ring as a reminder of her purity pledge with her boyfriend.

Molly Ringwald also stars in the show as Amy’s mother.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager is produced by Brenda Hampton (7th Heaven) and directed by Ron Underwood (Eli Stone).
