"MY BABYSITTER'S A VAMPIRE," A MOVIE THAT TAKES A COMEDIC BITE OUT OF POP CULTURE VAMPIRES, PREMIERES FRIDAY, JUNE 10 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

Ushers in Summer Series Premiering Monday, June 27

"My Babysitter's a Vampire," a comedic spin on pop culture vampires and scary movies in general, tells the story of three teens who believe their new babysitter is a real bloodsucking creature of the night -- and it's now up to them to rid their sleepy little town of the menace. The movie premieres FRIDAY, JUNE 10 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Produced by Fresh TV and distributed by FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME), it will usher in a summer series premiering Monday, June 27 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT).

In the movie, geeky 14-year old Ethan (played by Matthew Knight) is left to babysit his younger sister, Jane (played by Ella Jonas Farlinger), with his best friend Benny (played by Atticus Mitchell). But after Ethan inadvertently puts Jane in harm's way, his parents hire a professional sitter, the beautiful yet mysterious 17-year-old Sarah (played by Vanessa Morgan) who, unbeknownst to them, is actually a fledgling vampire. When the boys discover Sarah's secret, she enlists their help in stopping her vampire ex-boyfriend, Jesse, from taking over their town, Whitechapel. Along the way, they discover that Whitechapel holds a few secrets of its own, and that they themselves might actually even have supernatural powers. When fans of the newest vampire movie "Dusk 3" gather for its premiere, Jesse and his clan of followers plan their vengeance on Whitechapel that night, and only Sarah, Ethan and Benny can stop them from destroying their town.

The story was created by the award-winning team of Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, with screenplay by Tim Burns. "My Babysitter's a Vampire" was developed by Fresh TV in association with TELETOON. Executive producers are Tom McGillis, Jennifer Pertsch, Brian Irving and George Elliott, as well as FME's Sander Schwartz and Bob Higgins.
