[via press release from Disney Channel]

"AUSTIN & ALLY," A COMEDY ABOUT AN UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP, PREMIERES SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

-- Talented Ensemble Cast is Ross Lynch, Laura Marano, Raini Rodriguez and Calum Worthy --

-- Leading up to the Premiere, Global Music Sensation Justin Bieber Performs on the Hit Series "So Random!" --

Opposites rock in "Austin & Ally," a new comedy series about an unlikely friendship, singing, songwriting and the adventures of trying to achieve one's dreams, premiering SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The series follows polar opposites - an extroverted musician/singer, and a brilliant yet shy songwriter - who combine their talents in an attempt to create a true musical tour-de-force. Starring are newcomer Ross Lynch as Austin, Laura Marano ("Without a Trace," "Back to You") as Ally, Raini Rodriguez (Disney's "Prom," "I'm in the Band") as Trish and Calum Worthy ("Psych," "Good Luck Charlie") as Dez. Prior to the premiere of "Austin & Ally," music sensation Justin Bieber performs "Mistletoe" from his upcoming holiday album, in an all-new episode of the hit series "So Random!"

In the premiere episode, Austin is eager to release another music video, so he puts the pressure on Ally to quickly finish the lyrics. However, in her haste to complete the song, she scribbles down the lyrics in illegible handwriting, prompting Dez and Trish - who are collecting props for the music video - to gather some strange items which they think correspond to Ally's lyrics. When the odd collection of musical props and items begins arriving, they piece together the handwriting debacle and quickly work together to resolve the mix-up.

The multi-platform schedule is as follows:
