-- Series Joins Sunday Night Family Comedy Block--

Disney Channel's "Liv and Maddie," a new comedy series starring Dove Cameron in the dual role of 15-year-old identical twin sisters Liv, a Hollywood star who has just returned home to Wisconsin and Maddie, a hometown basketball star, as they navigate high school life, mischievous brothers and each other's differences, premieres SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The series, which joins Disney Channel's Sunday night family comedy block, also stars newcomers Joey Bragg and Tenzing Norgay Trainor as younger brothers Joey and Parker Rooney, respectively, Benjamin King as dad Pete Rooney and Kali Rocha as mom Karen Rooney.

In the premiere episode, Maddie is named captain of the girls' basketball team just as the school principal announces he is cutting funding for the program. Determined to change his mind, Maddie voices her concern to the principal, only to realize her team has abandoned her. Frustrated with her lack of leadership skills, Maddie turns to Liv to help her earn the team's respect.
