Cast: China Anne McClain, Sierra McCormick and Jake Short
A.N.T. is the acronym for "Advanced Natural Talents," which serves as the basis for the Disney Channel sitcom, A.N.T. Farm. Three friends, Chyna, Olive and Fletcher are junior-high students who attend A.N.T. at the local high school, Webster in San Francisco.
Chyna (China Anne McClain) is the group's musical prodigy, adept at virtually any instrument. Olive (Sierra McCormick) possesses an eidetic memory, able to remember everything she's seen, heard or read. Fletcher (Jake Short) is the artistic member of the group, skilled at sculpture and painting, and who also has a huge crush on Chyna.
The trio have plenty of friends and acquaintances, as well as rivals. Chyna's main protagonist is Lexi, who sees Chyna as a threat to her status as the school's "Queen Bee." The series borrows liberally from similar sitcoms such as "Saved By the Bell" and even older productions such as "Happy Days" and "Doogie Howser, M.D."
Parents take a decided back-seat in A.N.T. Farm, making token appearances when an "adult" viewpoint is called for.
