EXCLUSIVE: Call it High School Musical: the series. Or Glee with original music. Disney Channel is fast-tracking what is described as its most ambitious series yet. Tentatively titled Madison High, the single-camera comedy is still in development but preliminary casting has already begun and a formal pilot order is expected to follow. Just like HSM, Madison High employs the break-into-song-and-dance format to tell the stories about 11-16 year-olds navigating the school social hierarchy. It is set at Madison High, which is trying to build a revolutionary theatre program, and follows a pool of students who, by the end of the year, will have produced an original piece based on their lives. The Office alum Lester Lewis, who worked with Disney Channel on another music-driven single-camera comedy, Jonas L.A., is writing Madison High, which he is executive producing with Paul Hoen. Hoen, who has directed about a dozen Disney Channel original movies, most recently Camp Rock 2, as well as episodes for that many series, is set to direct the pilot when it is greenlit. Disney Channel introduced the contemporary musical genre to a new generation of kids and tweens with the 2006 smash High School Musical, which spawned two sequels, one on TV and one on the big screen. HSM4 is in the works, and next year, spinoff Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure starring and executive produced by Ashley Tisdale, will premiere on the channel. Fox's Glee applied the break-into-song contemporary musical concept to the series format to huge success. Now Madison High is taking it one step further. Unlike Glee, which only features cover songs, it will stick to the HSM model with all-original music. The show will commission new songs while also featuring artists from Disney's music label. Disney Channel has already found success with music-themed comedies, including multi-camera hit Hannah Montana and the channel's promising new addition Shake It Up.

Disney Channel si prepara a lanciare il pilot di una nuova serie, intitolata 'Madison High', una commedia-musical ambientata al liceo. Sarà una sorta di spin-off di High School Musical, visto che tra i personaggi c'è Ms. Darbus.

Disney Channel Casts Pilot for Musical Comedy ‘Madison High’

A favorite star from “High School Musical” will be joined by six multitalented performers in a new music and dance-driven comedy pilot, “Madison High” (working title). The series pilot introduces a troupe of theater students led by the melodramatic drama teacher Ms. Darbus, a beloved character from the cultural sensation “High School Musical.” Production on the pilot begins in March in consideration for a Disney Channel series to premiere in early 2012.

To drive the storyline, “Madison High” will feature four original songs written by noted songwriters. They are: Matthew Gerrard (“Hannah Montana,” “High School Musical”), Robbie Nevil (“Hannah Montana,” “High School Musical”), Jamie Houston (“High School Musical”), James Dean Hicks, David Lawrence (“High School Musical,” “High School Musical 2”), Faye Greenberg (“High School Musical 2”), Kara DioGuardi (“Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam”) and J.D. Salbego.

Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush (“High School Musical” and its sequels) and Lester Lewis (“The Office”) and Paul Hoen (“Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam”) are the executive producers. The pilot was written by Lester Lewis and will be directed by Paul Hoen.

In making the announcement, Gary Marsh, president, Entertainment and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said: “‘High School Musical’ introduced the joys of musicals and musical theater to a whole new generation and kids and families. They embraced the themes explored in those movies — about expressing oneself and following your dreams. And now, with ‘Madison High,’ we hope to give kids a whole new set of characters with whom to engage – along with more great original music, dance numbers and songs.”

Tony Award nominee Alyson Reed reprises her “High School Musical” TV and film roles as Ms. Darbus, the drama teacher at East High School who relocates to Madison High. The pilot will introduce several new characters, including students Devin Daniels, Peyton Hall and Wednesday Malone, played by actors/singers/dancers Luke Benward (Disney Channel Original Movie “Minuteman”), Leah Lewis and G Hannelius (Disney Channel Original Movie “Den Brother”). Additional casting announcements are forthcoming for the characters Cherry O’Keefe, Colby Baker and Harvey Flynn.

At Madison High, the students embark on a journey of self discovery while trying to build a revolutionary theatre program under the tutelage of Ms. Darbus. She casts a diverse troupe of both seasoned and raw actors to create an original musical production based on their lives.

Alyson Reed stars as drama teacher Ms. Darbus, the role she originated in “High School Musical,” followed by its sequel and feature film. The Tony Award-nominated actress starred on Broadway in “Dancin’,” “Dance a Little Closer,” “Cabaret,” “A Grand Night for Singing” and “Marilyn: An American Fable.” She can also be seen as Cassie in Richard Attenborough’s film adaptation of “A Chorus Line,” as well as multiple television guest starring roles.

15-year-old Luke Benward has the lead role of Devin Daniels, a motocross racer looking for a new hobby. The native of Nashville, Tennessee is the son of an actress and a musician, and since age 5 has appeared in commercials, music videos and movies, including the Disney Channel Original Movie “Minutemen,” “How to Eat Fried Worms,” “Doggone,” “Because of Winn-Dixie,” “Mostly Ghostly,” “Dear John” and “We Were Soldiers.”

14-year-old singer Leah Lewis has landed her first leading role as Peyton Hall, a formerly home-schooled tennis champion. Born in China and raised in Orlando, Florida, Lewis has appeared in national commercials for Kraft Cheese, Home Depot and Natures Own Bread, as well as an international commercial for Disneyland Hong Kong.

12-year-old G Hannelius is set to play Wednesday Malone, a precocious starlet in the making. The native of Boston, Massachusetts began her acting career at the age of 8 at the Children’s Theater of Maine. A familiar face on Disney Channel, she starred in the short form series “Leo Little’s Big Show” and “Den Brother,” and has appeared on “Sonny With A Chance,” “Good Luck Charlie,” “Hannah Montana” and Disney XD’s “I’m in the Band.” Her other television credits include a series regular role on ABC’s “Surviving Suburbia.”

Casting will be announced soon for these characters: Cherry O’Keefe — Madison High’s resident queen bee and blogger; Harvey Flynn — the overly officious stage manager and reigning president of the Drama Club; and Colby Baker — the artistic anime fan whose hand-drawn Manga is inspired by his high school experiences.
