Twelve-year old Piper (Mia Sinclair Jenness, Orange is the New Black) is convinced that extraterrestrials are real, but her best friend Curtis (Caleel Harris, Blaze and the Monster Machines) isn't so sure. Rounding out their trio is Ira (Griffin Kunitz, Days of our Lives), who has a garage full of inventions and gadgets they can use on their adventures. Together, the three of them try to prove the existence of aliens and can't help but become personally involved with the cases of people who call into their show. Skyward is created and written by Greg Coolidge (The Troop) and Kirk Ward (The Expendables), directed by Jonathan Judge (Sigmund and the Sea Monsters) and executive produced by Coolidge, Ward, Judge and Sabrina Wind (Desperate Housewives).
