Look out, Miley and Hilary, here comes Demi.
Disney Channel has ordered Welcome To Mollywood, a live-action comedy series starring Demi Lovato of the network’s upcoming Jonas Brothers movie Camp Rock.
It’s a role that could potentially put Lovato on the teen queen career path trod so successfully by Miley Cyrus and Hilary Duff.
The tentatively titled series centres on Molly (Lovato), a 15-year-old small-town girl who, after a nationwide search, is chosen to join the cast of the most popular and long-running teen sketch comedy show on television.
The sitcom will feature a show-within-a-show with fully produced comedy sketches.
Lovato was introduced to Disney Channel viewers last year in the shortform comedy series As The Bell Rings. She also co-stars in Disney’s upcoming TV movie Princess Protection Program.
Lovato also has a recording contract with Disney’s Hollywood Records, and will tour with the Jonas Brothers in the summer.
The Mollywood cast also includes Tiffany Thornton, Brandon Mychal Smith, Doug Brochu and Allisyn Ashley Arm. It is set to go into production in September.
