Overachiever stereotype in movies/TV?

What are some examples of overachievers in the media? Most likely, but not necessarily, students. Characters like Reese Witherspoon's in "Election", Blair Waldorf in "Gossip Girl", etc.

    So not overachievers, but the stereotypical overachievers.

    Which means leaving out the boy genius types like Doogie Hauser or Wesley Crusher, who are seen as innately brilliant, rather than working to succeed.

    You also don't mean driven men, like Gordon Gecko. Successful men are rarely seen as "overachievers", they're merely driven or focused.

    You're basically looking for women who are shrill and mocked as nearly OCD in organization, right?
