'''''O''''' is an adaptation of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/{{Othello}}'' [[SettingUpdate set]] [[HighSchoolAU in high school]]. [[TropesAreNotBad It's better than it sounds]].

Odin (Creator/MekhiPhifer) is the only black student at Palmetto Grove and also the star basketball player, with hopes of reaching the NBA. His best friend, Hugo (Creator/JoshHartnett), is jealous of Odin's success and attempts to ruin him by making him believe that his girlfriend Desi (Creator/JuliaStiles) is carrying an affair. It gets worse.

* BillingDisplacement - [[Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay Mekhi Phifer]] is given less prominence in much of the promotional materials than Josh Hartnett and Julia Stiles; [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0184791/ the poster]] has him tiny at the bottom while Hartnett and Stiles are two [[FloatingHeadSyndrome floating heads]] looming above him.
** Of course, it can be argued that Hugo is the main character, making it a more justifiable example of this trope.
