DISNEY CHANNEL ORDERS SECOND SEASON OF
ITS COMEDY SERIES "I DIDN'T DO IT"
Disney Channel has ordered a second season of the comedy series "I Didn't Do It," starring popular actress and recording artist Olivia Holt (Disney XD's "Kickin' It"), Austin North, Piper Curda, Peyton Clark, and Sarah Gilman. It was announced today by Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. The series premiered in January and season to date is Disney Channel's #1 series among Tweens 9-14 (a tie) and ranks among the network's Top 5 series with both Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11. New episodes of "I Didn't Do It" premiere SUNDAYS (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.
In making the announcement, Bonnett said, "These five actors have an extraordinary bond on screen and off. Our audience loves watching their chemistry as BFFs who get into the most ridiculous situations every week, all while navigating the challenging world of high school."
Each episode begins with the close-knit group of five teenagers in the midst of a wild occurrence - something incredible, something so comically absurd, it has them trying to explain away the craziness. Through a series of flashbacks, they recount the various and sometimes random moments leading up to their present predicament.
"I Didn't Do It" was created by Tod Himmel ("90210," "The Starter Wife") and Josh Silverstein ("So Random!") and is a production of It's a Laugh Productions, Inc.
