About I Didn’t Do It
Disney Channel’s upcoming buddy-comedy “I Didn’t Do It” follows fraternal twin sister and brother Lindy and Logan who, along with their three best friends, Jasmine, Garrett and Delia – take on their freshman year of high school together, one outrageous adventure after another. Each episode begins with the close-knit group in the midst of an insane occurrence; something incredible, something so comically absurd, it has them trying to explain away the craziness. Through a series of flashbacks, the five best friends recount the various and sometimes random moments leading up to their present predicament.

Series Premieres on The Disney Channel January 17th!

Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie” Premieres Sunday May 6th with Make Room for Baby & a New TV Mommy Blogger

"Good Luck Charlie" on the Disney Channel

“Good Luck Charlie” on the Disney Channel

Season 3 kicks off on Sunday Night on the Disney Channel as the Duncan family from “Good Luck Charlie” adjusts to the news of another new baby arriving and the changes from needing a new home to mom Amy leaving her full-time job to be at home become the focus of the start of the season.

“Good Luck Charlie” stars include Bridgit Mendler, Jason Dolley, Leigh-Allyn Baker, Bradley Steven Perry, Mia Talerico and Eric Allan Kramer and Raven Goodwin, Shane Harper and Micah Williams return to reprise their roles as Ivy, Spencer and Emmett.

It’s more diapers, bottles and onesies for the Duncans as they prepare to welcome the newest member of their family. Baby Duncan, whose name was chosen by more than 25 million votes worldwide on www.DisneyChannel.com.

We got to speak with Leigh-Allyn Baker from her vacation in Paris earlier this week. One of the fascinating things we found it is that the series is very popular with kids and tweens ranking #2 in those categories. We asked Leigh-Allyn why she thought it was so popular and she told us that the show has something for everyone to identify with, “even though kids roll their eyes, they want to enjoy doing something with their family” and watching “Good Luck Charlie” is a way to bring families together for an entertaining event.

Leigh-Allyn also told us that she has some similar personality traits with her character, Amy, which include being outgoing, fun, theatrical and even to some extent her characters desire for stardom, that some times backfires.

Being a mother herself, Leigh-Allyn and the other cast members get to offer input to the producers and writers for character development and ideas for upcoming shows. Leigh-Allyn likes how the creators pay attention to who the actor is and mixes the character and personality together to make their performance realistic and entertaining.

One of the interesting things that happens this season is that Amy starts a new venture – a blog and becomes a “mommy blogger.” We are excited to see this role on the Disney Channel as there  are millions of mom’s out there who are blogging about their families and many of them are making a living at it as well.

Some more interesting facts about Leigh-Allyn: her birthday is April 3rd and she has a 3-year-old son and is pregnant with her second child. Her son’s favorite show is “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” along with “Doc McStuffins” on the Disney Channel (of course!).

You may also recognize Leigh-Allyn from her roles on “Will and Grace” and “Charmed” as well as numerous other roles in television and movies.

“Good Luck Charlie” was created by Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen (“Suddenly Susan” and “What I Like About You”) and is executive-produced by Baker, Vaupen and Dan Staley (“Cheers,” “Love & Money”).

New episodes of “Good Luck Charlie” air SUNDAYS on Disney Channel. The series is a production of It’s A Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline. Click here for more info on this show or like the series on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GoodLuckCharlie.

What Do Your Kids Watch Online? New Web Series Spotlight: Ruby Skye P.I. for Today’s Digital Kids

Ruby Skye P.I.With more and more children joining us online, it’s important for parents to be mindful of where their children go to view and interact with content. That’s why we were excited to host the webseries, Ruby Skye P.I. on our growing network of online content.

Ruby Skye P.I. was designed to be a safe and fun web series for today’s digital tween. Think Nancy Drew meets the Internet bringing mystery and adventure into the story with Ruby and her friends. The episodes are not as long as on TV but each one has a different “theme” and is smartly done by master story-tellers Julie Strassman-Cohn and Jill Gollick.

For those parents of tweens and teens out there, we’re sure you (and your kids) can relate to Ruby, curious and determined to solve mysteries. For this series the clues are hilarious and intriguing, missing birthday brownies, underfed fake pets and so on. Each episode ends with a cliffhanger, spurring imagination to take hold with the audience.  Of course, if your tween wants to get creative and solve mysteries around your house after watching this fun series, be sure to give them a video camera and have them create their own story. We think this series will inspire those budding actors and directors out there to create their own magic. Be sure to stay tuned to more updates on Ruby Skye P.I. as we’ll be hosting some live shows with the creators so your kids can meet and talk to the team behind this web TV series.

My Bitchy Witchy Paris Vacation This new original web series is created by Alexis Niki and shot entirely in Paris. Mingle Media TV is excited to be airing this on our network and hope that the support of our women, mothers and sisters appreciate this comedic yet touching story as it unfolds in Paris.

“My Bitchy Witchy Paris Vacation” shares the story of a mother going through menopause and travels to Paris with her two daughters who are going through hormonal changes of their own.
