CHINA ANNE MCCLAIN AND KELLI BERGLUND STAR IN THE COMEDY ADVENTURE "HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY," PREMIERING FRIDAY, AUGUST 15 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

-- Available to Verified WATCH Disney Channel Viewers on Monday, August 11 --

Recording artist China Anne McClain (Hollywood Records' McCLAIN and Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm") and Kelli Berglund (Disney XD's "Lab Rats") star as tech whizzes who computer-program the perfect boy and in the process trigger a national incident in "How to Build a Better Boy," a Disney Channel Original Movie premiering FRIDAY, AUGUST 15 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

AP science and math tests are no sweat for Gabby Harrison (McClain) and Mae Hartley (Berglund) but fitting in at school doesn't come as naturally. So, using design software that belongs to Mae's father, the girls engineer a high-definition version of Mae's fake boyfriend, Albert, who she's dreamt up as everything a high school girl could want in a guy. However, when Albert comes to life as an advanced robotic soldier, the two best friends soon learn that Mae's father works for a top secret military branch, which is now in pursuit of Gabby and Mae, as well as Albert, to ensure he doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

"How to Build a Better Boy" also stars Marshall Williams (contestant in "Canadian Idol") as Albert; Noah Centineo ("Austin & Ally") as Mae's crush, Jaden Stark; Ashley Argota ("True Jackson, VP," "Lab Rats") as Mae's arch-nemesis, Nevaeh Barnes; Matt Shively ("True Jackson, VP," "Jessie") as Mae's brother, Bart Hartley; and Roger Bart ("Revenge") as Mae's father, James Hartley.

Two songs will be released from the movie - "Something Real" performed by China Anne McClain and Kelli Berglund, produced by Rock Mafia and written by Rock Mafia, Antonina Armato, Tim James, IN-Q, and Thomas Sturges; and "Stand Out" performed by Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel's "Girl Meets World"), produced by Rune Westberg and written by Carpenter, Westberg and Stevie Scott. Both singles will be released by Walt Disney Records and available Tuesday, July 29 and Tuesday, August 12, respectively, on iTunes.
