Tyler Wilson on the set of 'Hellcats'11-year-old Ohio native Tyler Wilson became national news back in September when he was bullied at school for wanting to be a cheerleader. Apparently the other kids thought that was worthy of a beating that led to a broken arm for Tyler.

Bullying certainly isn't a new issue in schools, but it's getting more attention lately, as big-name celebrities are speaking out against it.

When Tyler's story made headlines, the cast of The CW's 'Hellcats' made a PSA reminding kids that it's their right to be whatever they want to be; they even invited Tyler to the show's set to see some tough TV cheerleaders, male and female, in action.

AOL TV is proud to share this exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Tyler's visit to Vancouver, including anti-bullying messages from stars Aly Michalka, Matt Barr, Heather Hemmens and Robbie Jones; Tyler learning some moves from the show's choreographer; and a sneak peek of the scenes he got to be a part of in this week's episode, 'Before I Was Caught' (airs Tuesday, April 26, 9PM ET on The CW).

'Hellcats' Series Premiere - Marti Is Naked and Trapped, But Lewis Saves HerThe new series 'Hellcats' (Wed., 9PM ET on CW) is set in the world of collegiate cheerleading. Think of it as being like 'Glee' (but without the singing) mixed with 'Bring It On' (except that it takes place in college). On the first episode, Marti Perkins (Alyson Michalka) arrives for her freshman year at Lancer College. Marti has a pre-law scholarship -- but then, through a series of misfortunes, she loses her student funding.

Now, Marti needs to get a new scholarship ... and the only way to do that is to join the "Hellcats" -- the school's competitive cheerleading squad. While this might be bad news for Marti, it's good news for us viewers. Because without this little plot twist, we'd be stuck watching Marti take four years worth of legal training courses. But instead, we get a show about sexy, sexy cheerleaders. Yay!

[Spoiler alert.]
