When a science experiment goes awry, teen best friends Shelby and Cyd gain the power to travel back and forth in time, although they can’t quite control their powers just yet, in the new sitcom “Best Friends Whenever,” debuting FRIDAY, JUNE 26 on Disney Channel. The series, starring Lauren Taylor (“Richie Rich”) and Landry Bender (Disney XD’s “Crash & Bernstein”) as time-traveling teen besties Shelby and Cyd, premieres immediately following the highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie “Teen Beach 2” (8:00 p.m., ET/PT).
The series follows Shelby (Taylor) and Cyd (Bender), who gain the power to leap forward and backward in time whenever they want – and sometimes when they don’t. Now, the duo experience the twists and turns of friendship as they try to decide between fixing mistakes in the past or catching a glimpse of the future. While aspiring scientist Barry and his trusty assistant, Naldo, try to figure out how to replicate time travel for themselves, Cyd and Shelby use their newfound power to navigate high school, life and Shelby’s mischievous twin brothers, Bret and Chet.
Also starring are Gus Kamp (“Deadtime Stories”) as Barry, Ricky Garcia (“Forever In Your Mind”) as Naldo, and identical twins Benjamin Cole and Matthew Lewis Royer as Bret and Chet.
In the premiere episode, Shelby enlists Barry and Naldo to help create the perfect ambiance at school to ask her crush, Cameron, to the big dance. When the unexpected spoils her plans, Shelby and Cyd try to use their newfound power to travel back in time to fix everything.
“Best Friends Whenever” premiere episode simulcast will be available to verified users on WATCHDisneyChannel.com and the WATCH Disney Channel app for smartphones and tablets.
The multi-camera series was created by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas (of Disney XD’s “Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja”) and is executive produced by Elinoff, Thomas and Emmy Award-winning producer Michael Kaplan (“Dog With A Blog”), and produced by Julie Tsutsui (“Liv and Maddie”). “Best Friends Whenever” is a production of It’s a Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline.
