DO-IT-YOURSELF COMEDY DUO PAIGE AND FRANKIE TAKE ON THE BLOGOSPERE IN THE SERIES 'BIZAARDVARK,' PREMIERING FRIDAY, JUNE 24, ON DISNEY CHANNEL

Upcoming Guest Stars Include Calum Worthy ("Austin & Ally") and Social Media Sensations Meredith Foster, Logan Paul and JiffPom

Best friends Paige and Frankie take the video blogging world by storm with their quirky online comedy channel, in the new live-action sitcom "Bizaardvark," debuting FRIDAY, JUNE 24 (9:45 p.m. EDT), on Disney Channel. Geared for kids and tweens, the stories follow the antics of the comedy duo and their friends as they marshal their ingenuity, unique talents and resources to follow their dreams. Starring as vlogger besties are Olivia Rodrigo (American Girl's "Grace Stirs Up Success") as Paige Olvera and Madison Hu ("Best Friends Whenever") as Frankie Wong. The series debuts immediately following the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie "Adventures in Babysitting" (8:00 p.m. EDT).

The series follows Paige and Frankie who write funny songs and create music comedy videos for their online channel, "Bizaardvark." Now with 10,000 subscribers, they are invited to produce their videos at the influential Vuuugle Studios. In this cool environment - and with the help of longtime friend and 12-year-old agent Bernie, plus fellow Vuuugle stars Dirk (of "Dare Me Bro!") and Amelia (of "Perfect Perfection with Amelia") - the best friends embark on comedic adventures in their quest to rule the blogosphere.

Also starring are Vine sensation Jake Paul (YouTube Red's "Dance Camp") as the loveable and wild Dirk Mann, DeVore Ledridge as Southern DIY diva Amelia Duckworth, and Ethan Wacker ("Miles from Tomorrowland," "K.C. Undercover") as the overly confident Bernard "Bernie" Schotz.

In the premiere episode, Frankie and Paige begin to second guess their talents as they struggle to come up with ideas for a video they feel is good enough to present during their first VidView party at Vuuugle.

Upcoming guest stars include Calum Worthy ("Austin & Ally"), popular YouTuber Meredith Foster, Vine sensation Logan Paul (also of Freeform's "Stitchers") and Instagram star JiffPom.

The multi-camera series was created by Kyle Stegina and Josh Lehrman, each participants in Disney Channel's Storytellers program, which fosters and develops the next generation of series creators and writers of programming for kids, tweens and families. Executive produced by Eric Friedman ("Austin & Ally," "Crash & Bernstein") and co-executive produced by Michael Curtis & Roger Schulman and Kyle Stegina & Josh Lehrman, "Bizaardvark" is a production of It's a Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline.

The multi-platform schedule includes the following:

FRIDAY, JUNE 1

Disney Channel App will launch two activities: "Selfie: Bizaardvark," which will allow users to snap fun selfies with Paige and Frankie and other cast members, add stickers to their photos, and save their creations to their camera roll. The second activity will include a GIF creator that will give users access to images from the series to create a seven second animated GIF that they can post to the Disney Channel App gallery and their camera roll.

FRIDAY, JUNE 24

The premiere episode will be available to all viewers - verified and non-verified - via the Disney Channel App for desktops, smartphones and tablets.

Meanwhile, Bernie tries to help Dirk overcome his worse fear to complete a dare involving a pond of dangerous snapping turtles.

SUNDAY, JULY 10

"Bizaardvark" moves to its regular timeslot with the telecast of its second episode "Draw My Life" (8:30 p.m. EDT) on Disney Channel.
