Based on the real-life scandal of 5 cheerleaders at North Mckinney High School in Texas (dubbing themselves the Fab Five), who were generally insolent and challenged the authority of their teachers.  The group was known for bullying and breaking rules, like truancies, flipping a finger at another coach, and on one occasion rudely telling a teacher, who asked one of them to not use their cell phone during class, to 'shut up, I'm on the phone to my mother'. Their off-campus behavior included posting their own photos of themselves partying with alcohol and going to an adult store on Myspace.

With Brooke (Ashley Benson), the leader of the 'pack', being the daughter of the school principal (Tatum O'Neal), the new cheerleading coach, Emma Carr (Jenna Dewan), tried her best to discipline the 5 girls only to be reprimanded by the principal, leading to her resignation and eventually blowing the whistle to the media...
