Disney Hopes Tweens Thirst for 'Lemonade'

With Troy and Gabrielle having been replaced by Edward and Bella in the hearts (and wallets) of gazillions of tween/teen girls, Disney has pounced on what it hopes will be its next 'High School Musical.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the next coming will be an original made-for-TV movie based on Mark Peter Hughes' cult fave, 'Lemonade Mouth.'

The novel, about 5 outcast "freaks" at a New England high school whose chance meeting in detention leads to them form what becomes "Rhode Island's most influential band," has been adapted by April Blair ('Christmas Caper') and will be produced by Debra Martin Chase ('The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,' 'The Cheetah Girls').

Although a firm broadcast date hasn't been set, and we don't know which young actors' lives are about to be changed by being cast in it, 'Lemonade' will likely debut on the Disney Channel a few months after the highly-anticipated (by the mall set anyway) 'Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam' sequel airs in September. With 10.1 million viewers, 2008's 'Camp Rock' was cable's most-watched scripted telecast.

The plot kind of sounds similar to the "School Gyrls" plot.
