That '70s Show, produced by Carsey-Werner, revolves around several
teens living in Wisconsin in 1976 including, Eric Forman (Topher Grace),
who lives under the authority of his parents, Donna Pinciotti (Laura
Prepon), the girl next door, Fez (Wilmer Valderrama), the foreign-exchange
student soaking up American culture, Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), the self
proclaimed hottie, her on-again off-again boyfriend Michael Kelso (Ashton
Kutcher) and Steven Hyde (Danny Masterson), the conspiracy theorist of the
group. The gang spends their time in Eric's basement, thinking of their
lives, parents, and futures, but they manage to get into funny adventures
and mishaps along the way throughout their teenage years.
Instant Star depicts the life of Jude Harrison, a singer/songwriter who
is propelled to superstardom after she wins a national American Idol-style
talent competition. Jude is played by real-life singer/songwriter/actress

featured in the series. Each episode of Instant Star features a new song
performed by Johnson.

her hot young producer and former boy-band heartthrob Tom Quincy, aka Lil'
Tommy Q (Tim Rozon), boy-next-door best friend Jamie Andrews (Kristopher
Turner), band-mate turned reality TV-star Spiederman (Tyler Kyte), Spied's
wife and G-major musician Karma (Cory Lee), Jude's older and wiser sister
Sadie (Laura Vandervoort), as well as the head of G Major, media-mogul
