-- Series Joins Sunday Night Family Comedy Block--

Disney Channel's "Liv and Maddie," a new comedy series starring Dove Cameron in the dual role of 15-year-old identical twin sisters Liv, a Hollywood star who has just returned home to Wisconsin and Maddie, a hometown basketball star, as they navigate high school life, mischievous brothers and each other's differences, premieres SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

Frustrated with her lack of leadership skills, Maddie turns to Liv to help her earn the team's respect.
