For a long time I have been looking for an old TV series that was about a girl, and she pretended to be a boy so she could go to an all-boy school. She falls in love with a boy there, but he doesn't know that she is a girl. But it is really many years ago. Can anyone help me?

Sounds like a bizarre cross between Bosom Buddies and Boys Don't Cry. –  Meat Trademark Jan 10 '14 at 18:09
It sounds like a film She's the Man –  Ankit Sharma Jan 10 '14 at 18:20
Is it a Korean Drama because there are a lot of girls pretending to be boys to go to an elite school –  Sandra Mar 21 at 12:57
Welcome to Movies & TV. Are there any other things you remember that may help identification? When did you watch it? What time was it likely from? What country was it likely from? Any other plot details or descriptions you can give? –  Napoleon Wilson Mar 21 at 13:08

1 Answer 1

It sounds like Young Americans, From IMDb synopsis:

This series portrays life at Rawley Summer Academy, an elite school in Connecticut where boys with a bright Ivy League future spend the summer industriously in classes and rowing training on the lake. It's mainly told from the viewpoint of Will Krudski, a gifted, genuinely inquisitive student and future writer, who feels guilty having cheated at the entry exams. His roommate, Scout Calhoun, is a school legacy who makes an effort to become friendly with some underprivileged local kids and falls in love with the daughter of a garage owner who turns out to be family. Most of his classmates are golden spoon boys, but still have their problems, among each-other, at home and sometimes with the locals. Actually Jacqueline 'Jake' Pratt is a girl pretending to be a boy as the only way to get in, causing great confusion for Hamilton, the school dean's son, who begins to fall for her.
