Disney Channel is starting production on a new film starring Laura Marano (Austin & Ally) and Leigh-Allyn Baker (Good Luck Charlie).
The film, Bad Hair Day, is scheduled to premiere on Disney Channel in 2015.
Marano stars as a high school tech whiz who wants to be crowned prom queen. But on prom day everything that can go wrong does go wrong, including uncontrollable hair and a destroyed prom dress.
Baker plays a down-on-her-luck police officer who is in pursuit of a lost necklace that Marano’s character unknowingly has in her possession. The duo end up spending prom day being pursued by a jewel thief played by Christian Campbell (Neighbor).
The made-for-TV movie is being filmed in Montreal, Canada, and Baker is not only starring in the film but she’s also the executive producer. The film will be directed by Erik Canuel (Bon Cop, Bad Cop). The screenplay was written by Eric M. Gardner, Steven H. Wilson, and Billy and Matt Eddy (Zapped, Teen Beach 2).
