Synopsis: On her 100th birthday, Ms. Vampy, a Brooklyn Vampire, tells her parents she is moving to Hollywood to pursue her dreams of becoming a pop star and the next Paula Abdul. Her parents discourage it, but call in a "favor" that is owed to them by a famous music mogul. The music mogul has since passed and the failing record label is now being run by his son, Michael Taylor. Michael agrees to honor his father's word and allows Ms. Vampy to stay at his Beverly Hills Mansion home with him, his fifteen year old daughter, Brooke and his "evil" fiance, Alyssa. Michael has been struggling to keep his family music business afloat and has not been spending any quality time with Brooke, while Alyssa has been putting her down and burning through his money. Without Michael's knowledge, Brooke has retreated to writing and playing music alone to deal with her problems. Times have been tough for the Taylor family, until the lovable Ms. Vampy shows up at their door! Ms. Vampy quickly learns that Michael cannot help her in the music industry, but she decides to stay anyway, so Cousin Vinnie is sent to watch over her. Ms. Vampy and Brooke bond and she discovers that Brooke is a super talented musician. She encourages Brooke to join a band and share her talents with the world. Brooke is a shy, awkward loner and tells her she doesn't have any friends or a band to play with. Ms. Vampy is inspired to help Brooke put a band together and transform this group of "misfit" teen girls into courageous little rockstars! The girls in the band dream of competing in the annual high school Halloween Battle Of The Bands, but are afraid to sign up in fear of being bullied by and losing to Brittany and her gorgeous and popular senior girl band. Brooke also has her own dream of dating Brittany's cute and athletic senior boyfriend, Jordan. As dreams unfold, Ms. Vampy learns that her own dreams may take a different form and finds happiness and purpose in Brooke, the band, their music and Michael. As the story continues, we learn that it is okay to be "different", it is "inner" beauty that matters, never give up on your dreams, lives can be transformed and when faced with fear, dig deep inside, find your inner "vamp" and Vamp It Out!
