Max & Shred is a buddy comedy about the unlikely friendship that forms when easygoing superstar snowboarder, Max Asher, moves in with anxious academic, Alvin Ackerman, and his family. The show centers on the boys’ odd couple relationship as they help and hinder each other through the trials of teenage life. Abby, Alvin’s driven older sister, and Howie, Alvin’s super smart eight-year-old protégé aid the boys in their adventures. Each half hour multi-cam episode will comically highlight the challenges of the young science whiz living with a celebrity athlete in the bustling ski town of Blizzard Springs. It’s gonna be siiiiick!
The family is surprised when Alvin suddenly has a girlfriend, but quickly grow fond of her. Max however smells a rat and stands up for his best bud when he thinks this new love is just using Alvin for student government gain. Howie is testing the intelligence of a pig, but runs into trouble when the Ackermans keep treating it like a pet.
After Alvin claims not to have any fears, Max, Howie and Juliet set out to scare him. But with Diane and Abby away at a college interview, Lloyd is left in charge and does not know how to handle a potential ghost in the house.
Alvin and Juliet have been dating for a while and Juliet wants their parents to meet. But what seems like a harmless idea quickly escalates into the parents forbidding Alvin and Juliet from seeing each other anymore! At the same time, Max and Abby discover Howie has been keeping an amazing snow fort secret from them.
Alvin forgets an important anniversary with Juliet, then makes things worse when he tries to follow the not-so-sage love advice of everyone in the family. But eventually, with Abby's help, Alvin finds the confidence he needs to win back Juliet back. Meanwhile, Max meets his second biggest fan, Harley, and Howie's not happy about it.
