SEASON THREE OF DISNEY CHANNEL'S TOP RATED SERIES "A.N.T. FARM" PREMIERES FRIDAY, MAY 31 WITH A SPECIAL ONE-HOUR EPISODE

Season three of "A.N.T. Farm," the hit comedy series for kids and tweens, premieres FRIDAY, MAY 31 (8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel with a special one-hour episode. Starring China Anne McClain, the new season follows musical prodigy Chyna Parks and her friends, Olive Doyle, Fletcher Quimby and Angus Chestnut, as well as cheerleader Lexi Reed, who reveals her own prodigious talent, as they move away from home to attend a prestigious A.N.T. (Advanced Natural Talents) boarding school. The episode features the new original song "Stars Aligning," performed by Hollywood Records recording artist McClain.

In the premiere episode, the ANTs are excited when billionaire former child prodigy, Zoltan Grundy, announces the opportunity for Webster High students to audition and attend his exclusive A.N.T. boarding school. Chyna, Olive, Fletcher, Angus and Lexi all audition for the new school, but soon after, Chyna is heartbroken when she discovers she didn't make the final cut.

"A.N.T. Farm" premiered in June 2011 and ranks as TV's #1 telecast on Fridays at 8 o'clock across Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. In 4Q12 it reached more than 138 million unduplicated viewers worldwide, in 162 countries and in 30 languages.

The "A.N.T.

The McClain Sisters wrote and performed "Rise," as featured in Disneynature's "Chimpanzee" and "The Great Divide" from the Tinker Bell film, "Secret of the Wings."

The series was created by Dan Signer ("The Suite Life on Deck," "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody") and is executive-produced by Signer and Stephen Engel ("The Big Bang Theory," "Mad About You," "Dream On").
