It's double the fun following the world premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie "Teen Beach Movie," as Disney Channel presents a preview of the upcoming original sitcom "Liv and Maddie," FRIDAY, JULY 19 (9:45 p.m., ET/PT). The series follows smart and witty fifteen-year-old identical twins Liv and Maddie, both played by seventeen-year-old Dove Cameron, and their tight-knit family, younger brothers Joey and Parker, and parents Pete and Karen. "Liv and Maddie" will premiere this fall on Disney Channel.

 

In the preview episode, twin sisters Liv and Maddie at long last reunite when Liv returns home to Wisconsin after starring for four years in a hit musical television show in Hollywood. The Rooney sisters quickly realize their polar opposite personalities put their unbreakable twin bond to the test. While their parents play referee between Liv, a cool, confident, social butterfly who loves to sing, and Maddie, a smart, athletic, high school basketball star who opts for high tops over high heels, brothers Joey and Parker seize the opportunity to capitalize on the chaos and get away with as much as they can.

 

Starring are Dove Cameron ("Malibu Country," upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie "Cloud 9") as Liv and Maddie Rooney; newcomers Joey Bragg and Tenzing Norgay Trainor as younger brothers Joey and Parker Rooney; Benjamin King ("SCRUBS," "NCIS") as dad Pete Rooney and Kali Rocha ("Grey’s Anatomy," "Modern Family") as mom Karen Rooney.

 

"Liv and Maddie" is created and executive-produced by John Beck and Ron Hart (both of "According to Jim"). Andy Fickman ("The Game Plan," "Race to Witch Mountain"), John Peaslee ("According to Jim," "Dog With A Blog") and Betsy Sullenger ("You Again") are also executive producers, and Fickman will direct episodes for the series. "Liv and Maddie" is from It's A Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline.

    That’s not fair, it was suppose to be wonder over yonder that was suppose to be a sneak peak, oh well

  • Jon23812

    So… it’s a full fledge TV show… where the twins… are played by ONE person?

    I give it one season.

  • AniMatsuri

    With so many real acting twins out there, why get the twins played by the same person? This is sort of like a reboot of the Patty Duke show(twins played by the same person).

    …and when are we going to see a Parent Trap movie with actual twins playing the parts?

  • yolo

    I give it two seasons because of the show the lying game because it also has twins that are played by one person.

    I watched the preview, Disney has really been
    struggling as of late with some of its shows and
    movies, I think Disney will hit it off with this one,
    the preview, had all of what will make a teen/kid show
    great Comedy, Siblings bonding over a tough
    subject and of course potential
