Nolan Byrd (Devon Werkheiser) is a shy, straight-A student in the fifth grade who loves tinkering with electronics and flying remote-controlled airplanes near the local pond. Unfortunately, this makes him a prime target for Bubba Bixby, the oversized school bully, whose wealthy father happens to run "Bixby's Royal Flush," a local sewage concern. Bubba loves to torture other students at school, including Nolan's crush Isabel, and he has also stolen Nolan's best friend, Max. Inspired by an assignment from his guitar-wielding teacher Mr. Green (played by always-funny Tim Meadows), Nolan decides to secretly videotape Bubba in the act of his crimes. Realizing that to save his own skin he must remain anonymous, Nolan invents a pseudonym, and Shredderman is born. Nolan begins posting his videos on a top-secret website. Instantly, its honest mockery of Bubba is heralded at the school, and Shredderman becomes an overnight hero. As Shredderman's popularity continues to grow, Nolan lets his alter-ego tackle bigger issues. One evening, during an attempt to confront Bubba face-to-face, Nolan overhears Bubba and his father discuss plans to trick the town into building a fake water reclamation plant at the local pond. While Nolan can't tell anyone, Shredderman sure can. Also starring Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers) and Dave Coulier (Full House), Shredderman Rules is based on the best-selling book SHREDDERMAN: Secret Identity by Wendelin Van Draanen. Ages 6+.
