SARAH HYLAND ("MODERN FAMILY") AND MATT PROKOP STAR IN "GEEK CHARMING," A DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11

Sarah Hyland ("Modern Family") and Matt Prokop ("High School Musical 3: Senior Year") star in the comedy "Geek Charming," a Disney Channel Original Movie based on the popular young adult novel of the same name, premiering FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). The story follows a snobby high school girl who has her perspective challenged when she becomes the subject of a self-proclaimed film geek's documentary.

In the movie, spoiled Dylan Shoenfield (Hyland), Woodlands Academy's most popular junior, accidentally drops her designer handbag into the mall fountain and the school's film geek, Josh Rosen (Prokop) jumps in to retrieve it. Although Dylan would not usually interact with Josh, to return the favor, she agrees to be the subject of his documentary for the school film contest - with the hope that the film will help her win the coveted Blossom Queen crown. While Josh sets out to make a hard-hitting film about Dylan and her social hierarchy, once the cameras start rolling he sees there's more to her than meets the eye.

Beginning October 11, visitors to DisneyChannel.com can take a personality quiz to see which "Geek Charming" character is the most like them. Users can also view images from the movie in "Geek or Chic" and designate what's "geeky cool" or "totally chic."
