Toronto, Canada – Best friends Paige and Frankie take the video blogging world by storm with their quirky online comedy channel, in the new live-action sitcom Bizaardvark, debuting Friday, June 24 at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT, following the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie Adventures in Babysitting at
8 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel. Bizaardvark follows the antics of the comedy duo and their friends as they marshal their ingenuity, unique talents and resources to follow their dreams. Starring as vlogger besties are Olivia Rodrigo (American Girl’s Grace Stirs Up Success) as Paige Olvera and Madison Hu (Best Friends Whenever) as Frankie Wong.
Geared for kids and tweens, the series follows Paige and Frankie who write funny songs and create music comedy videos for their online channel, “Bizaardvark.” Now with 10,000 subscribers, they are invited to produce their videos at the influential Vuuugle Studios. In this cool environment – and with the help of longtime friend and 12-year-old agent Bernie, plus fellow Vuuugle stars Dirk (Dare Me Bro!) and Amelia (Perfect Perfection with Amelia) – the best friends embark on comedic adventures in their quest to rule the blogosphere.
Also starring are Vine sensation Jake Paul (YouTube Red’s Dance Camp) as the loveable and wild Dirk Mann, DeVore Ledridge as Southern DIY diva Amelia Duckworth, and Ethan Wacker (Miles from Tomorrowland, K.C. Undercover) as the overly confident Bernard “Bernie” Schotz.
In the premiere episode, Frankie and Paige begin to second guess their talents as they struggle to come up with ideas for a video they feel is good enough to present during their first VidView party at Vuuugle.
Upcoming guest stars include Calum Worthy (Austin & Ally), popular YouTuber Meredith Foster, Vine sensation Logan Paul (Stitchers) and Instagram star JiffPom.
The multi-camera series was created by Kyle Stegina and Josh Lehrman, each participants in Disney Channel’s Storytellers program, which fosters and develops the next generation of series creators and writers of programming for kids, tweens and families. Executive produced by Eric Friedman (Austin & Ally, Crash & Bernstein) and co-executive produced by Michael Curtis & Roger Schulman and Kyle Stegina & Josh Lehrman, Bizaardvark is a production of It’s a Laugh Productions, Inc.
