You are probably wondering why the name of this show sounds so darn familiar. And if you are a Heath Ledger fan, you probably know exactly why.
10 Things I Hate About You was a very popular movie, released in 1999. It featured Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger.
The movie and the show were both based off of Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew”.
The Stratford sisters, Bianca (Meaghan Jette Martin) and Kat (Lindsey Shaw), have very different goals. At their new high school, it’s clear that one sister wants to stand out and the other just wants to fit in. Kat is a cool, strong-willed, forthright feminist who is looking to save the world and get out of school as fast as she can. But when she meets the intense Patrick Verona (Ethan Peck), sparks begin to fly. Bianca is a social butterfly whose main goal in life is to be popular, but when the head cheerleader makes her the mascot, she realizes she has a long way to go. As they start a bumpy year at Padua High, Kat and Bianca attempt to navigate the popular crowd, boys and their over-protective dad (Larry Miller).
