Breaker High is a Canadian-American teen comedy-drama series that ran from 1997 to 1998, airing on YTV in Canada and on UPN's weekday "Kids" block in the United States. The series was created by Cori Stern, while Sci-Fi veteran David Winning directed the pilot and seven episodes of the series.
The series is set at a high school located on a cruise ship (equivalent to the real Semester at Sea program), allowing the episodes to be set in different exotic locations, although the series was, in fact, filmed entirely in Burnaby, British Columbia. Like most series of its kind, it featured events such as dating, finances, and friendship, although as a daytime series, it tended to steer away from the "tougher" situations (pregnancy, sexuality, etc.) outlined in other primetime teen dramas at the time.
