Disney is currently developing a brand new original film for Disney+ called “Prom Pact”, a romantic comedy set during the emotion and excitement of high school Prom season from Disney Branded Television.
The film will star Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Milo Manheim and Margaret Cho. It will also star Blake Draper, Monique Green, Arica Himmel, Jason Sakaki, and David S. Jung.
It’s the height of prom season, and high school senior Mandy Yang and her best friend and fellow outsider Ben (Manheim) are surrounded by over-the-top ’80s-themed Promposals. However, Mandy keeps her eyes focused on a different goal: her lifelong dream of attending Harvard. When she finds out that she has put on the waitlist, she is determined to do whatever she can do to get herself accepted, even if that means asking for help from the one person she abhors – popular all-star jock Graham Lansing, whose father is a powerful senator and Harvard alum. Once Mandy becomes Graham’s tutor, she begins to realize there’s more to him than she thought and perhaps something more to life than Harvard.
According to Deadline, “Goldbergs'” Wendi McLendon-Covey is going to be starring in the series and playing the role of Alyssa, Mandy’s (Peyton Elizabeth Lee) mom. Alyssa is smart, perceptive, caring and proud of her daughter, although she wishes Mandy would allow herself to have a little more fun during her high school years. Wendi McLendon-Covey has previously starred in “Reno 911” and “Bridesmaids”.
Jake Kasdan (“Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.”), Melvin Mar (“Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.”), Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”) and Rachael Field (“Modern Family”) are executive producers on “Prom Pact” and Anya Adams (“Ginny & Georgia”) is directing the movie, which was written by Anthony Lombardo (“American Housewife”).
