EXCLUSIVE: 'Hellcats' Gets Anti-Bullying Message to Larger Audience (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 25th 2011 3:15PM
Tyler Wilson on the set of 'Hellcats'11-year-old Ohio native Tyler Wilson became national news back in September when he was bullied at school for wanting to be a cheerleader. Apparently the other kids thought that was worthy of a beating that led to a broken arm for Tyler.

Bullying certainly isn't a new issue in schools, but it's getting more attention lately, as big-name celebrities are speaking out against it.

When Tyler's story made headlines, the cast of The CW's 'Hellcats' made a PSA reminding kids that it's their right to be whatever they want to be; they even invited Tyler to the show's set to see some tough TV cheerleaders, male and female, in action.

AOL TV is proud to share this exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Tyler's visit to Vancouver, including anti-bullying messages from stars Aly Michalka, Matt Barr, Heather Hemmens and Robbie Jones; Tyler learning some moves from the show's choreographer; and a sneak peek of the scenes he got to be a part of in this week's episode, 'Before I Was Caught' (airs Tuesday, April 26, 9PM ET on The CW).

Aly Michalka, Hellcats'Hellcats' cheerleader Marti Perkins is the kind of character I often hate to love, but I just can't help myself, mostly because star Aly Michalka is so good playing her.

I caught up with Michalka to talk about this week's big return (Tues., Jan. 25, 9PM ET on The CW). After some major drama before the holidays, Marti's friendships and her more-than-friendships are in big trouble. So where do we find her? And how soon before she and Savannah (Ashley Tisdale) are back to normal?

And you superfans will be excited to know that Aly clearly chooses the guy she wants Marti to be with -- Dan or Lewis -- but do you agree with her choice? She also teases her sister AJ's guest stint on 'Hellcats,' why playing music toghether will make sense on the show and, yes, what songs we'll hear them singing.

Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka Cheer on 'Hellcats' - TCA Report

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 30th 2010 12:40AM
HellcatsNot content with just being the small screen's Superman, Tom Welling was on hand at the CW's TCA panel to promote 'Hellcats,' the new cheerleading show he's producing with Kevin Murphy.

Stars Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka were also in attendance on the panel, which was peppy as a pep squad with reporters talking all over each other to put their questions to the cast.

Some of the highlights are included below.

-- On the comparisons with 'Glee,' Murphy said "I'd never have the temerity to compete with 'Glee' in terms of razzle-dazzle. While the dancing is a huge component of the show, it exists with one foot in the world of the characters -- no-one will tune in for the awesome three minutes of dancing we'll provide without that."
