Popular actresses Laura Marano ("Austin & Ally") and Leigh-Allyn Baker ("Good Luck Charlie") team up to star in the comedic buddy adventure "Bad Hair Day," a Disney Channel Original Movie scheduled to premiere in 2015. Leigh-Allyn Baker makes her foray into producing as executive producer of the movie.

Marano stars as a high school tech whiz who's bound and determined to be crowned prom queen. But on the big day, everything that can go wrong does go wrong, starting with her sudden and epically uncontrollable hair and her once lovely yet now destroyed prom dress. She soon comes to rely on a down-on-her-luck cop (Baker) who's in pursuit of a missing necklace that the teen unwittingly has in her possession. Prom day goes from bad to mad as the pair is pursued by a dogged jewel thief on a wild ride across the city. Christian Campbell ("Neighbor") has been cast as the jewel thief.

Laura Marano stars in the hit comedy "Austin & Ally," the #1 series on TV among Tweens and the #2 series among Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11 for 2013. 2014 to-date, it is TV's #1 series in its primary timeslot among Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. Marano was UNICEF Ambassador for the 63rd annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.

For 100 episodes and a record-setting Disney Channel Original Movie, Leigh-Allyn Baker played mom Amy Duncan on the hit sitcom "Good Luck Charlie." Encore episodes continue to rotate on Disney Channels around the world. Baker also voices Queen Delightful in the new animated comedy series "The 7D" and is known for her recurring roles on "Charmed" and "Will & Grace."

To be filmed in Montreal, Canada, "Bad Hair Day" will be directed by Erik Canuel ("Bon Cop, Bad Cop") and produced by Muse Entertainment. The writers are Eric M. Gardner, Steven H. Wilson, and Billy & Matt Eddy ("Zapped," "Teen Beach 2"). Along with Baker, Joel Rice, Denise Carlson, Dawn Wolfrom and Michael Prupas also serve as executive producers.

In Total Viewers, five of the top six movies in cable TV history are Disney Channel Original Movies. Disney Channel has also presented five of the top six movies in cable TV history and the #1 TV movie telecast among Tweens for 12-consecutive years (2002-13).
