Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Viola Davis and Julius Tennon, EIF PRESENTS: XQ SUPER SCHOOL LIVE is a one-hour special that invites the public to help rethink the future of American high schools. In September 2015, XQ: The Super School Project launched an open call to rethink and design the next American high schools. Since then, thousands of communities across the country have come together to reimagine high school education. This 60-minute special highlights the progress of this movement and challenges viewers to build upon it. The telecast features a live musical performance by Andra Day, comedy sketches, and documentary segments to bring to life the past, present and future of high school in America. The evening culminates in a special performance led by Jennifer Hudson with Sheryl Crow, Max Weinberg and Max Weinberg's Jukebox, Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma, MC Hammer, Jon Boogz and Sheila E. Plus, Davis and Tennon are joined by these celebrity participants: Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hanks, Mahershala Ali, Tony Hale, Bill Hader, Christian Slater, Common, Randall Park, Rami Malek, Portia Doubleday, Thomas Mann, Anna Deavere Smith, Miranda Cosgrove, Melissa Rivers, Kevin Frazier and many more. Airing live from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA, EIF PRESENTS: XQ SUPER SCHOOL LIVE premiered on Friday, September 8, 2017 at 8pm ET (live)/PT (tape) on ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC.
