Burbank, CA (Thursday, July 2, 2009) � ABC Family will present the television premiere of the third installment of the "Legally Blonde" franchise, "Legally Blondes," on Sunday, August 2 (8:00PM � 10:00PM ET/PT). In this newest chapter of the popular franchise, Reese Witherspoon, as producer, passes the blonde-baton to British twin sisters Becky and Milly Rosso, who expertly carry on the "Legally Blonde" legacy as Elle's cousins, Izzy and Annie Woods. The Rosso twins are most recognizable as Disney Channel stars from "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." Leading into the premiere of "Legally Blondes" will be the first two installments with "Legally Blonde" airing at 4:00PM ET/PT, and "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde" airing at 6:00PM ET/PT.
With a legal approach to life built into their blood, twins Izzy (Becky Rosso) and Annie (Milly Rosso) Woods share their cousin Elle's DNA, including beauty, perfect blonde hair and fabulous fashion sense. But when the teens move from their native England to California to attend a posh prep school, they end up becoming the target of Tiffany (Brittany Curran), the school's wealthy "queen," and ultimately become embroiled in a campus trial. Put to the test, the two girls have to use the trademark Woods' ingenuity to take the blonde fight to the toughest venue of all -- high school.
Presented by Reese Witherspoon, "Legally Blondes" is directed by Savage Steve Holland; written by Chad Gomez Creasey & Dara Resnik Creasey; executive producers are Irene Dreayer and Matthew Papish; and producers David Brookwell, David Buelow, Sean McNamara and Marc Platt.
