“Lab Rats” follows Leo Dooley, who discovers three teen super-humans – Adam (Spencer Boldman) the strong one, Bree (Kelli Berglund) the fast one and Chase (Billy Unger) the smart one, living in a secret underground lab in his house. Turns out that his step-father Donald (Hal Sparks) is a wealthy inventor who created the bionic teens. The trio, eager to leave their confines, convince Leo to take them along to school, where they try to navigate the world of high school life while managing their bionic strengths. Along the way, they help Leo build self confidence while he figures out a way to keep their bionic abilities a secret from the world. Leo’s mother Tasha (Angel Parker) also acts as a mother figure for Adam, Bree, and Chase, but mostly Bree, because they are the only girls in the house. Eddy (Will Forte) is the sarcastic, smart-home system who controls the Lab Rats’ house and dislikes Tasha and the kids.
