The cast is in New York to support the premiere of Disney Channel’s upcoming “Freaky Friday,” a body swap comedy about a mother and daughter who magically spend a day in each other’s shoes. The musical TV movie, adapted from Disney Theatrical Production’s stage show, is a universal story about forming an understanding by “walking in someone else’s shoes.” It was written by award-winning playwright Bridget Carpenter, based on the novel by Mary Rodgers. Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey wrote the music and lyrics, respectively. Steve Carr is the director and executive producer with fellow executive producers Susan Cartsonis and Thomas Schumacher.
Starring singer/actress Cozi Zuehlsdorff who Disney Channel sought for years until they found the perfect role for her; and Broadway actress Heidi Blickenstaff who defied the odds by taking her stage role in the “Freaky Friday” regional tour and crossing it over to the screen. The TV movie also stars Jason Maybaum (Disney Channel’s “Raven’s Home”), Alex Desert, Ricky He, Kahyun Kim, Dara Renee’, Isaiah Lehtinen, Jennifer Laporte, Marlowe Percival, Joshua Pak and Rukiya Bernard.
“Freaky Friday” premieres Friday, August 10 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
