WINNING PROM QUEEN TITLE MEANS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL, IN THE ABC FAMILY ORIGINAL MOVIE "TEEN SPIRIT," PREMIERING SUNDAY, AUGUST 7TH AT 8:00PM ET/PT

Two-Hour Movie Stars Cassie Scerbo, Lindsey Shaw and Tim Gunn ("Project Runway") As a Spiritual Supervisor to a Prom Queen of Mean

Burbank, CA (June 27, 2011) - Blind ambition and bad behavior have a queen bee headed for a fiery demise unless she can pull off a high school miracle -- turning a shy, unassuming wallflower into Prom Queen material, in the ABC Family two-hour original movie, "Teen Spirit," starring Cassie Scerbo ("Make It Or Break It," "Bring It On: In It To Win It"), Lindsey Shaw ("10 Things I Hate About You," "Pretty Little Liars") and Tim Gunn (upcoming "The Smurfs" feature, "Project Runway"), premiering Sunday, August 7 at 8:00PM ET/PT. The movie premieres as part of the network's annual "Campus Crush" programming event.

Amber Pollock (Cassie Scerbo) is the queen bee of Patrick Boone High School, and the only thing missing to her reign is the Prom Queen title. Having worked for years towards obtaining the crown and most popular girl status, Amber lets nothing and no one stand in her way. That bad behavior comes back to literally haunt her when a freak accident at Prom ends Amber's short, nearly-perfect life and, facing an unpleasant after-life, she is given the task that could save her soul - to get the school's least popular girl to be voted Prom Queen. Amber is sure her future is sunk when she learns her charge is none other than Lisa Sommers (Lindsey Shaw), a shy girl who makes claymation films with her three best friends and whose fashion sense is not up to Amber's standards. As for Lisa herself, the last thing she wants is to be Prom Queen, but when Amber offers to help her get the attention of her crush, Nick, Lisa gives Amber the benefit of the doubt. Will a head-to-toe makeover and some confidence-building advice really be able to turn a shy and awkward teen into a high school social power player? Only Heaven knows!

"Teen Spirit" was written by Kathryn McCullough and David Kendall & Bob Young, and directed by Gil Junger. Executive producers are Steven Gary Banks and James Middleton.
