ABC FAMILY TO AIR THE WORLD TELEVISION PREMIERE OF "FAN GIRL" ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3rd AT 9:00PM ET/PT

The Movie Stars Golden Globe-Nominee Meg Ryan, Screen Actors Guild Award-Winner Kiernan Shipka ("Mad Men") and the Real-Life Pop-Rock-Band All Time Low

Burbank, CA (September 17, 2015) - A music-obsessed teenager sets out to make a high school film project about her favorite band, All Time Low, in the world premiere of "Fan Girl," airing on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 at 9:00PM on ABC Family.

Telulah Farrow (Kiernan Shipka) is fifteen, sarcastic and obsessed with only two things in life: the pop rock band All Time Low and becoming a filmmaker. Her biggest problems of the moment are coming up with a killer final-film project for school and dealing with her mom Mary's (Meg Ryan) newfound love of social media. A source of contention between the two, Telulah doesn't understand that Mary has immersed herself wholeheartedly in that world simply in the hopes of being included in her daughter's life.

But as it turns out, Mary's newfound social media savvy has its unexpected perks when she reconnects with an old acquaintance with a big connection to All Time Low. Telulah's whole life changes in one night when she gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see her music idols in concert; this is the perfect chance to combine both her passions, make a movie about All Time Low and have a real shot at winning the film competition. Along with sassy sidekick Jamie and underachieving, highly energetic film-class-partner Darvan, Telulah goes after what she wants and learns a little about life, family and herself along the way.

"Fan Girl" stars Screen Actors Guild Award Winner Kiernan Shipka ("Mad Men," "Flowers In The Attic"), Golden Globe Nominee Meg Ryan ("When Harry Met Sally," "Sleepless in Seattle"), Kara Hayward ("Moonrise Kingdom"), Scott Adsit ("30 Rock," 'Big Hero 6"), Bill Sage ("We Are What We Are") and newcomer Joshua Boone. Pop punk band "All Time Low" appears in the film and provides much of the soundtrack. "Fan Girl" is produced by Literally Films in association with Rosetta Films and Filament Productions. The movie is directed by Paul Jarrett and written by Gina O'Brien.
