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.

Jillian Clare, ITVFest Best Actress 2011 Award Winner

Meet Jillian Clare (star and executive producer of the teen series Miss Behave and Haley Ferguson from the Emmy nominated Nickelodeon movie Freak the Freak Out) who has just joined the cast of the feature film, THE KITCHEN.

Jillian has a lot to celebrate this year with her recent nomination in the best actress category at the International Television Festival for her teen series Miss Behave, which was also an Official Selection of the Festival and then winning Best Actress in a Drama at the ITVFest.

Jillian’s new role in THE KITCHEN, which is a comedy about a girl’s ill-fated 30th birthday party, where she plays Nikki – a friendly and flirtatious ditz who has an inner logic that somehow makes sense. Jillian’s on-screen boyfriend is played by Adam Chambers (“Night of  the Living Dead 3D: Re-Animation”) and other cast members include Laura Prepon (“Lay the Favorite,” NBC series “Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea”) and Bryan Greenberg (HBO series “How to Make it in America”).  The film is directed by Ishai Setton (“The Big Bad Swim”), written by Jim Beggarly (“Free Samples”), and produced by Emily Ting (“Family Inc.”).

We’ve talked to Jillian on several occasions after meeting her on the red carpet and we’re excited to see her continue to grow and succeed in both traditional and digital media. We’re also looking forward to seeing what happens in Season Three of her multi-award winning teen drama Miss Behave which is gearing up for filming later this year. Catch it on their site http://www.missbehave.tv

Clare is repped by Greene & Associates and managed by Brandon Talent Management.
