TBS's Glory Daze

GLORY DAZE follows the fun -- and awkward -- misadventures of four freshmen as they navigate college life, trying to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Joel (Kelly Blatz) is a typical guy next door who is determined to keep his focus on pre-med, at least until he meets his unattainable dream girl, Christie (Julianna Guill). Eli (Matt Bush) is a virgin who desperately wants to be cool. Jason (Drew Seeley) is a buttoned-downed conservative, attached at the hip to his preppy girlfriend. Brian (Hartley Sawyer) is a star baseball player struggling to get out of his father's shadow. Together, the guys agree to check out fraternity houses, finally coming to the steps of Omega Sigma, where they are greeted by pledge recruiter Mike (Callard Harris). Intrigued by the fraternity's cool factor, their fate is sealed. They begin a journey that will make a lifetime of memories.

It's the 1980s, and four freshman have just arrived on campus, ready to take on college life. Boy-next-door Joel, wannabe ladies man Eli, button-downed conservative Jason and handsome jock Brian soon find themselves drawn to the Omega Sig house, where their guide Mike Reno is ready to show them what fraternity life is all about.

For more information, check out:

Christie DeWitt (Julianna Guill) is the beautiful, blonde object of Joel's affection, not to mention the affection of every other guy on campus. Unfortunately for Joel, her boyfriend is the Omega Sig president. But that doesn't mean she doesn't enjoy spending time with him as a friend.

Professor Haines (Tim Meadows) is an ultra-liberal professor with a chip on his shoulder and a streak of paranoia about the military-industrial complex. He frequently veers off topic during his lectures, using every opportunity he can to deliver a soapbox rant. He never hesitates to take a verbal jab at his students. Currently going through a messy divorce, Professor Haines is not very good with the ladies.

Jason Wilson (Drew Seeley) is a rich, buttoned-downed conservative who idolizes Ronald Reagan almost as much as he idolizes his preppy girlfriend. At first, Jason plans to pledge the fraternity to which his father belonged, a fraternity that produced six U.S. Senators. But, for the sake of his friendship with the other guys, he decides to give Omega Sig a try.

Joel Harrington (Kelly Blatz) is as clean-cut as they come. This handsome and lovable boy next door is determined to focus on his pre-med studies, but fraternity life and the crush he has on class beauty Christie could derail his plans. Burdened by Catholic guilt and always known for doing what his parents want him to do, Joel is starting to find his own path.

Stankowski (Chris D'Elia) is Omega Sig's perpetual student. Known as The Oracle, he has been a resident of the fraternity house for more than 10 years, which he says feels like 30,000 years' or sometimes just a moment. His room has a constant haze because of the numerous water pipes in use (including one made out of a mannequin's leg). It is from here that he expounds on the meaning of life and provides bits of wisdom to the younger
