Whiz Kids is an American science fiction adventure television series created by Philip DeGuere and Bob Shayne that originally aired on CBS from October 5, 1983 to June 2, 1984, lasting one season and consisting of 18 episodes. The 60-minute series follows four high school tenth-graders who use their sophisticated knowledge of computers to become amateur detectives, solving crimes and bringing perpetrators to justice. Although the series experienced a notable backlash from critics for its portrayal of teenage computer hackers, the program garnered four Youth in Film Award nominations for its young stars, as well as a fifth nomination as "Best New Television Series" of 1983.
