DISNEY CHANNEL ORDERS “I DIDN’T DO IT,” STARRING
DISNEY😄 STAR OLIVIA HOLT AND NEWCOMER AUSTIN NORTH
Disney Channel has ordered the comedy series “I Didn’t Do It,” starring popular actress and recent Radio Disney Music Award winner Olivia Holt (Disney😄’s “Kickin’ It” and the Disney Channel Original Movie “Girl Vs. Monster,” for which she recorded the song “Had Me @Hello”) and newcomer Austin North (“A.N.T. Farm,” “Kickin’ It”), it was announced today by Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. The multi-camera series begins production this summer in Los Angeles for a scheduled early 2014 premiere on Disney Channel.
In the series, ultra-competitive fraternal twins Lindy and Logan Watson, together with their four best friends, navigate their freshman year of high school. Each episode begins with a comedic “what just happened?” situation, as Lindy and Logan each spin their own vivid account of a certain occurrence or predicament. The series will use flashback scenes to tell the siblings’ unique stories.
Bonnett said: “We are looking forward to presenting our viewers with the humor, friendship and unexpected plot twists this unique sitcom offers by beginning each episode with the end of the story. We have assembled a top-notch creative team and cast of talented young actors with incredible comedic chemistry who already feel like they have been close friends since childhood.”
In addition to Holt and North, the series stars Piper Curda (“A.N.T. Farm”) as Jasmine, Sarah Gilman (“Last Man Standing”) as Delia and Peyton Clark as Garrett.
“I Didn’t Do It” was created by Tod Himmel (“90210,” “The Starter Wife”) and Josh Silverstein (“So Random!”), and is executive produced by Himmel and Judd Pillot (“According to Jim,” “Dog With A Blog”). Silverstein is supervising producer.
