DISNEY CHANNEL CONNECTS UNSUSPECTING FANS WITH THEIR FAVORITE STARS IN "PRANKSTARS," A NEW REALITY SERIES HOSTED BY MITCHEL MUSSO, PREMIERING FRIDAY, JULY 15

-- Premiere Episode Features Selena Gomez and Debby Ryan --

Disney Channel stars Selena Gomez, Debby Ryan and Mitchel Musso surprise their biggest fans in the premiere episode of "PrankStars," a hidden camera series where unsuspecting tweens and teens are set up by family members and come face to face with their favorite celebrities in unpredictable and humorous situations. Premiering FRIDAY, JULY 15 (8:00 - 8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel, the reality series is hosted by Mitchel Musso ("Pair of Kings," "Phineas and Ferb"), who directs the pranks live from a covert mobile command center. New episodes will premiere every month featuring a roster of new stars.

In the premiere episode featuring three pranks, 14-year-old Mary is put to the test when she is paired up with Selena Gomez, disguised as a typical teenager, to learn a jingle during an audition for a fake bubble gum commercial. The hilarity continues as Debby Ryan recruits her No. 1 fan, 14-year-old Albany, to model for her upcoming fashion show, but Albany's loyalties are tested when she is asked to fire Debby. When Mitchel Musso's real-life best friend does not show up for an interview at a restaurant, he recruits unsuspecting patron, 15-year-old Luke, to step in for the hardest role of his life.

"PrankStars" is executive-produced by Barry Poznick ("Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?"), John Stevens ("Lingo"), Charles Steenveld ("Family Game Night") and Rick de Oliveira ("All-Star Celebrity Treasure Hunt"). Musso co-wrote and performs the theme song. The reality series is a production of ZOO Productions. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
