-- Preview of New Comedy Series "A.N.T. Farm" to Follow --

All good voyages must come to an end, but for Seven Seas High School students Zack, Cody, London, Bailey and Woody, graduation comes sooner than they expect, and with a lot of baggage, in the momentous series finale of "The Suite Life on Deck," premiering FRIDAY, MAY 6 (8:00-8:40 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Immediately following is a special preview of the new comedy series "A.N.T. Farm," which revolves around Chyna Parks, an 11-year-old musical prodigy who attends high school as part of the prestigious A.N.T. (Advanced Natural Talents) program.

Fans are invited to visit www.DisneyChannel.com/SuiteLife and vote for their favorite episodes of "The Suite Life on Deck" and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." The episodes with the most votes in categories including Most Athletic, Cutest Couple, Most Likely to Succeed and Class Clown will air during a week-long programming event beginning MONDAY, MAY 2. Fans can also submit their "graduation wish" shout-outs to the cast and select messages will ticker on-air during the programming event. As of last Friday, over 7.6 million votes had been received from fans regarding their favorite episodes.

With 162 half-hour episodes between "The Suite Life on Deck" and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," the franchise holds the record for having the longest running continuous characters on air and the most episodes in Disney Channel history.

In "The Suite Life on Deck" episode "Graduation on Deck," Cody and Bailey grapple with the crushing fact that one of them does not get accepted to Yale. Also, Mr. Moseby makes a life changing decision involving Ms. Tuttweiler.

Disney Channel's newest comedy series, "A.N.T. Farm," is set in San Francisco and revolves around Chyna Parks, an 11-year-old musical prodigy who attends a high school as part of the prestigious A.N.T. (Advanced Natural Talents) program. She, along with her fellow A.N.T.s, Olive and Fletcher, must find her place and make the most of her high school experience despite the decidedly lukewarm welcome from some high school students, including Chyna's older brother, Cameron, who overcompensates to avoid his sister's shadow, and overachieving Lexi Reed, who doesn't appreciate the competition Chyna represents.

2011 to date, an episode of "The Suite Life" is the year's No. 1 scripted TV telecast among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14, and its Disney Channel Original Movie is the No. 2 TV movie of the year in the key demos. (Source: NTI, US ratings, Live + Same Day, 12/27/10-4/1911.)

"The Suite Life on Deck" stars Dylan Sprouse as Zack Martin, Cole Sprouse as Cody Martin, Brenda Song as London Tipton, Debby Ryan as Bailey Pickett and Phill Lewis as Mr. Moseby. Matthew Timmons has a recurring role as Woody and Erin Cardillo as Ms. Tuttweiler. The episode is executive-produced by Pamela Eells O'Connell ("Family Matters") and Irene Dreayer ("Sister, Sister," "Smart Guy"). "The Suite Life on Deck" is produced by It's A Laugh Productions for Disney Channel.
