SECOND SEASON OF HIT COMEDY SERIES "SONNY WITH A CHANCE" TO PREMIERE SUNDAY, MARCH 14 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

The second season of the hit comedy series "Sonny With A Chance" � highlighted by clever new 'So Random' sketches that further showcase the ensemble cast's tremendous comedic talent � will premiere SUNDAY, MARCH 14 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Starring are Demi Lovato, Tiffany Thornton, Sterling Knight, Brandon Mychal Smith, Doug Brochu and Allisyn Ashley Arm. Recurring cast members include Nancy McKeon, Michael Kostroff and Vicki Lewis.

The series was recently nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award in the Favorite TV series category and its title star, Demi Lovato, won a Teen Choice Award in the Choice TV Breakout Star category.

New episodes follow Sonny as she lives out her dream of starring on her favorite sketch comedy show for tweens, "So Random!" in Hollywood, she tries to balance her friendships with the everyday problems that pop up at school and on set. Throughout the second season, viewers will see the progression of Sonny and Chad's ever-evolving relationship, Sonny's new foray into singing, among a continued comedy of errors by the ensemble cast.

In the premiere episode entitled "Walk A Mile In My Pants," Sonny rallies everyone together for a "Walk-A-Thon For Books" and gets Tawni to donate her 'Tawni Hart's Extreme Skinny Jeans' for all of the participants to wear. When Chad finds out, he follows suit and organizes a "Walk-A-Thon Against Books" with participants also wearing Tawni's pants. Eventually everyone starts dropping like flies as a result of SPS (Skinny Pants Syndrome).

In 2009, "Sonny With A Chance" ranked among the Top 5 live-action series in Kids 6-11 (1.5 million/6.2 rating), and among the Top 5 scripted series on all television in Tweens 9-14 (1.4 million/5.8 rating). The series is currently the #1 TV program in its primary Sunday 8 o'clock time slot in key kid demos, and cable's No. 1 program in Total Viewers.
