Hutch Dano (of Disney XD's hit series "Zeke and Luther") and G. Hannelius ("Sonny With A Chance") star in the winsome comedy "Den Brother," a Disney Channel Original Movie about a self-centered teen hockey star, who must swallow his pride, step in and become substitute leader of his little sister's Bumble Bee troop. Filmed in Salt Lake City, Utah, "Den Brother" premieres FRIDAY, AUGUST 13 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

In anticipation of the movie, DisneyChannel.com will present the opportunity for visitors to become Bumble Bee Scouts, play games and earn virtual badges through various tasks, as well as find information on pro-social activities to help their community, such as donating to charity and recycling.

The premiere schedule is as follows:


"Den Brother" preview available via Disney Channel on Demand, a video-on-demand service available to a variety of affiliates including, Cablevision, Time Warner and Verizon FiOS TV customers.


Premiere of "Den Brother" (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel with simulcasts on Sprint TV, MobiTV and Flo TV.


Exclusive digital release of "Den Brother" on iTunes.

In the movie, 16-year-old hockey star Alex Pearson gets suspended from his team after showboating during a game, and to his dismay, finds himself filling in as a Bumble Bee Troop leader for his little sister Emily's troop. He must pose as the troop's elderly den mother from time to time but thinks it's a small price to pay, especially since he can get Emily and the girls to do his chores and make him snacks in exchange for merit badges. Even more advantageous, Alex has the opportunity to get closer to the beautiful Matisse Burrows, leader of another Bumble Bee Troop. However, when his self-centered antics cost Emily and her friends an opportunity to participate in the long-anticipated Camporee, Alex finally sees how he has affected those he cares about and must devise a plan that will get his troop into the camp.

The movie stars Hutch Dano ("Zeke and Luther") as Alex Pearson, G. Hannelius ("Sonny With A Chance," "Leo Little's Big Show") as Emily Pearson, Kelsey Chow (of the upcoming Disney XD series "Pair of Kings") as Matisse Burrows, David Lambert (Disney XD's "Aaron Stone") as Danny "Goose" Gustavo, Maurice Godin ("Wizards of Waverly Place," "House M.D.") as Professor Pearson, Vicki Lewis ("Sonny With A Chance," "Til Death") as Dina, and Debra Mooney ("Everwood") as Mrs. Jacklitz. Starring as the Bumble Bees are Taylar Hender ("Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader") as Abigail; Kiara Muhammad ("Steps") as Ursula; Haley Tju ("Hannah Montana") as Tina and Kelly Gould ("Rita Rocks") as Rachel.

The story was written by Mike Horowitz and the teleplay was written by Jim Krieg. "Den Brother" was directed by Mark L. Taylor ("Hooking Up"); executive-produced by Jessica Horowitz ("Beauty and the Briefcase") and Sandy Climan ("U2 3D"); and produced by Don Schain ("High School Musical" movies). "Den Brother" is a production of Salty Pictures, Inc. It carries a TV-G rating.
