The Disney Channel has announced a new pilot show titled “Austin & Ally.” Currently the show stars actors Ross Lynch, Laura Marano and Raini Rodriguez (sister of Rico Rodriguez from ABC’s “Modern Family”). The show is set to begin production this February and was created and executive produced by Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert, who also worked on the following shows:
– “Good Burger”
– “Keenan & Kel”
– “Sonny With A Chance”
“Austin & Ally” will be a multi-camera comedy that follows the unlikely friendship between two polar opposites, Austin [Ross Lynch], an extrovert, musician/singer, and Ally [Laura Marano], a super smart, but shy, songwriter, and their two best friends, Trish [Raini Rodriguez] and Dex [yet to be cast]. Austin and Dex take one of Ally’s songs, record it, create a video, and post it on the internet. Austin becomes a local sensation and Trish convinces Ally to tell the world she wrote the song while Austin begs her to write another hit for him. The two decide to combine their talents.
