In Nickelodeon’s 100 THINGS TO DO BEFORE HIGH SCHOOL, Saturdays at 8 PM, three middle-school friends work on accomplishing the above. The series was created by Scott Fellows.
Owen Joyner plays Crispo Powers, lifelong friends with CJ Martin (Isabela Moner) and Fenwick Frazier (Raheem Toombs). 100 THINGS TO DO BEFORE HIGH SCHOOL is his first series. We asked Joyner ten things about his work on 100 THINGS.
