USA High is an American teen sitcom which ran on USA Network from August 1997 to June 1999, ending after 95 episodes. The series revolves around six friends enrolled at the American Academy boarding school in Paris, France.[1]

Synopsis[edit]

USA High ran for a total of 95 episodes. Season 1 consisted of 75 episodes and ran from August 4, 1997[2] through November 1998. Season 2 consisted of 20 episodes and aired from November 1998 until June 1999. It was rerun on USA Network through August 4, 2001.

USA High was originally conceived to be a part of NBC's Saturday morning TNBC lineup.[citation needed] The series' executive producer was Peter Engel, who was also responsible for the Saved by the Bell franchise, California Dreams, City Guys, and Hang Time.[3] Its co-executive producers were Leslie Eberhard and Steve Slavkin (who was co-executive producer for the series' first 25 episodes only). The series was one of two post-Saved by the Bell: The College Years series executive produced by Engel that did not air as part of the TNBC lineup, Malibu, CA being the other.
