Synopsis

What if your TV could "tune in" tomorrow? Thirteen-year-old Logan Styles saw visions of himself on Park Avenue when his show business father landed a job in New York. Instead, Logan ended up in suburban L.A. with his grandmother, where boredom and new-kid obscurity pose a hazard to his health…until he discovers the DVR attached to his television records shows before they air. Suddenly able to “predict” the scores of ballgames, the outcome of reality shows and even the weather, Logan becomes a breakout hit among Sunset Ridge Middle School’s most popular crowd. But his digital ESP comes with a burden, and as he learns about the DVR’s downside, Logan will have to decide if having all the answers all the time is everything it’s cracked up to be.
