IN THE ABC FAMILY ORIGINAL MOVIE "TEEN SPIRIT," PREMIERING

Two-Hour Movie Stars Cassie Scerbo, Lindsey Shaw and Tim Gunn
("Project Runway") As a Spiritual Supervisor to a Prom Queen of
(June 27, 2011) - Blind ambition and bad behavior have a queen bee headed
for a fiery demise unless she can pull off a high school miracle --
turning a shy, unassuming wallflower into Prom Queen material, in the ABC
Family two-hour original movie, "Teen Spirit," starring Cassie
Scerbo ("Make It Or Break It," "Bring It On: In It To Win
It"), Lindsey Shaw ("10 Things I Hate About You,"
"Pretty Little Liars") and Tim Gunn (upcoming "The
Smurfs" feature, "Project Runway"), premiering Sunday,
August 7 at 8:00PM ET/PT. The movie premieres as part of the network's
annual "Campus Crush" programming event.
Amber Pollock (Cassie Scerbo) is the queen bee of Patrick Boone High
School, and the only thing missing to her reign is the Prom Queen title.
Having worked for years towards obtaining the crown and most popular girl
status, Amber lets nothing and no one stand in her way. That bad behavior
comes back to literally haunt her when a freak accident at Prom ends
Amber's short, nearly-perfect life and, facing an unpleasant after-life,
she is given the task that could save her soul - to get the school's least
popular girl to be voted Prom Queen. Amber is sure her future is sunk when
she learns her charge is none other than Lisa Sommers (Lindsey Shaw), a
shy girl who makes claymation films with her three best friends and whose
fashion sense is not up to Amber's standards. As for Lisa herself, the
last thing she wants is to be Prom Queen, but when Amber offers to help
her get the attention of her crush, Nick, Lisa gives Amber the benefit of
the doubt. Will a head-to-toe makeover and some confidence-building advice
really be able to turn a shy and awkward teen into a high school social
power player? Only Heaven knows!
"Teen Spirit" was written by Kathryn McCullough and David
Kendall & Bob Young, and directed by Gil Junger. Executive producers
are Steven Gary Banks and James Middleton.
