Disney Channel has ordered the comedy series “Best Friends Whenever,” starring Landry Bender (Disney XD’s “Crash & Bernstein”) as Cyd, newcomer Lauren Taylor as Shelby and Gus Kamp (“Deadtime Stories: The Beast of Baskerville”) as Barry. Production begins in March for a premiere later this year.
“Best Friends Whenever” centers on teenagers Shelby and Cyd, who when a science experiment goes wrong, become unstuck in time, leaping forward and backward whenever they want – and sometimes even when they don’t. Now with the help of their next-door neighbor, teenage genius Barry, the girls must learn to master their awesome new power as they time-shift through high school.
The series was created by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas (both of Disney XD’s “Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja”). Michael Kaplan (“Dog With A Blog”), along with Elinoff and Thomas, will serve as executive producers. Shelley Jensen (“Austin & Ally,” “Good Luck Charlie”) will direct multiple episodes.
