Plot[edit]

For Spencer Wright, a 14-year-old budding filmmaker, Beverly Heights is the ultimate thrill ride. But, being the new kid at a high school populated by Hollywood royalty, he’s an outsider with no ticket in. He's the kind of kid who gets his allowance in cash, not stock options; finding himself amid all this bling and stardom is intimidating. Luckily, he’s got an all-access pass in the form of his best friend, the ghost of pop star Billy Joe Cobra!

Basic Characters[edit]

  • Spencer Wright (Rasmus Hardiker) - Spencer is the 14-year-old protagonist of the series. He is a budding filmmaker and makes his own amateur movies on a regular basis. He aspires to be a famous film director. He is particularly fond of horror and gore movies, with nearly all of his own movies having to do with either zombies or monsters in some way. Spencer wears a blue guitar pick necklace that used to belong to Billy in order to see him. Because he is fairly new to Beverly Heights and is very different from the norm (in that he isn't rich, trendy, or the 'Hollywood type') he clashes with many people at his school and has garnered a number of enemies (Principal Ponzi, Lolo, and Kleet) although he receives help dealing with them from Billy. Likewise, Spencer helps Billy by protecting him from his enemies, like Madame X and Hoover. He also normally has to help solve problems caused by Billy as well, mostly pertaining to the effects of his ectoplasm and/or general antics.
  • Billy Joe Cobra (Darren Foreman) - Billy is 19 years old or older. He is a funny, mischievous ghost and best friend of Spencer, as well as his distant relative or cousin. Before he died, he was an extremely famous pop star, and still is very popular posthumously. He can not be seen or heard by others unless they wear a personal item that belonged to him until his death (for example, the necklace worn by Spencer). The personality of Billy consists of both a best friend-broker and a stereotypical narcissistic celebrity. He tries to help Spencer with his films and more to fit into life in Hollywood, although many of his efforts usually cause more problems. He often describes his days as a rock star, which shows that he was extremely hard at work (showing up to filming two days later and refusing to speak because he did not like the cameraman's jeans), liked to beat up hotel rooms and destroy music videos, and had a terrible attitude toward his team and staff. Also can be somewhat temperamental, especially when someone insults him or his music. Usually Billy's songs include lyrics about how much he loves himself or how everyone loves him ("I'm still in love with me", "I am the sunshine of my life", "You Love Me, I Love Me More", Etc.), although sometimes they are associated with things related to an extravagant way of life ("Big Yachts and Money"). Billy is extremely rich: he owns an individual limousine, several private jets and yachts, a crocodile for a pet and a large mansion in which the Wright family now lives after his death.
