Production Set to Begin on Disney Channel Original Movie Based on Series

Disney Channel will premiere the sophomore season of its hit series for kids and tweens and families, "Good Luck Charlie," on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 20 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). Across all television for 2010, "Good Luck Charlie" ranked as the No. 2 series among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.

The comedy centers around the everyday trials, tribulations and triumphs of a busy family of six, including what happens when Charlie turns 2, begins potty training, and inadvertently causes a power outage, unplugging the online chatting and gaming plans of her siblings, Teddy, PJ and Gabe (which could prove harmful to the teens' wellbeing!). Starring are Bridgit Mendler, Jason Dolley, Leigh-Allyn Baker, Bradley Steven Perry, Mia Talerico and Eric Allan Kramer. Among the recurring cast is Raven Goodwin, Shane Harper and Daniel Curtis Lee (Disney XD's "Zeke and Luther").

Season Two also includes the first-ever crossover episode for "Good Luck Charlie," a storyline featuring the cast of Disney Channel's newest hit comedy series "Shake It Up."

In March, the "Good Luck Charlie" cast will begin production on the untitled holiday-themed Disney Channel Original Movie based on the series. It is scheduled to premiere in winter 2011. Written by Geoff Rodkey ("R.V.," "Daddy Day Care") and directed by Emmy-nominee Arlene Sanford ("Ally McBeal," "Boston Legal"), the storyline finds the Duncans heading for Christmas in Palm Springs, but en route, Teddy makes a snap decision that separates the family. With just three days to go and no flights available, Teddy must pull out all the stops, including a camper, car, bus and a bike, to make a Duncan family Christmas.

"Good Luck Charlie" was created by Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen ("Suddenly Susan" and "What I Like About You") and is executive-produced by Baker, Vaupen and Dan Staley ("Cheers," "Love & Money"). The trio are also executive producers of the Disney Channel Original Movie based on the series. "Good Luck Charlie" is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
