Fans experiencing symptoms of the dread malady known as 'High School Musical' Withdrawal Syndrome can set down their dogeared copies of 'Tiger Beat,' because a cure is on the way in the form of a movie-sized dose of Ashley Tisdale.

According to Multichannel News, Tisdale is set to reprise her role as drama queen Sharpay Evans in the upcoming feature length telepic 'Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure.' The special, which Tisdale will also be executive producing alongside 'High School Musical' honchos Barry Rosenbush and Bill Borden, is slated for a 2011 debut.

Ashley TisdaleAshley Tisdale is making her way from the Disney Channel to regular broadcast TV for the CW's new pilot, 'Hellcats' (not to be confused with 'High School Musical's' Wildcats).

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the singer-actress joins Aly Michalka in the Tom Welling-produced series, about a competitive college cheerleading team. Michalka plays Marti, a sort-of bad girl who joins the Hellcats after budget cuts and her mother's irresponsibility cause her to lose her scholarship.

Nickelodeon Goes to 'Summer Camp': Is it the Next 'High School Musical'?

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Nov 17th 2009 12:00PM
Peter Barsocchini'High School Musical' writer Peter Barsocchini is making the pre-teen rounds, moving from his 'HSM' Disney Channel roots over to Nickelodeon, which has just picked up a half-hour pilot of his new concept, 'Summer Camp.'

Set to begin filming in Malibu next month, "Summer camp, in reality, is an iconic experience for kids," Barsocchini tells the Hollywood Reporter, "and the show is an opportunity to present the comedy and emotion kids experience when they are away from home for the first time."

Barsocchini made a name for himself in 2004 when he wrote 'High School Musical' for his daughter, Gabriella, and her friends, many of whom he named 'HSM' characters after. The sequel became the highest-rated cable broadcast in history, with 17.2 million viewers, and the theatrical 'Senior Year' installment had the biggest opening weekend of any movie musical in history. The series, in turn, launched the careers of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, among others.

Disney grooming Wizards of Waverly Place to be their "next big thing"

by Jason Hughes, posted May 2nd 2009 12:08PM
Wizards of Waverly PlaceDisney is doing everything they can to make sure that their target demo of 9-14 year olds can't breathe without choking on the Russos of Wizards of Waverly Place. Other than that, And with Miley Cyrus talking publicly about life after Hannah Montana, whenever that might be, it's time to look to Wizards of Waverly Place's Selena Gomez. As such, Disney has renewed Wizards for a third season and even greenlit a telefilm for the property.

What they really need to do is stream it on Hulu to ensure it is. The kids are online, you know.

Saturday Night Live: Zac Efron/Yeah Yeah Yeahs - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 12th 2009 12:35PM
SNL Zac Efron
(S34E21) When it came to everything unrelated to jazz hands, my expectations for Zac Efron were pretty low. Then again, there was part of me that kept thinking back to Justin Timberlake's first time hosting; he was just another song-and-dance good guy but the enthusiasm and craziness he brought to his performances blew everyone away. Okay, so Efron didn't do as well as Timberlake, but as the evening progressed, Efron seemed to get a little more comfortable and delivered a not-too-cingeworthy performance. Consider that a massive victory.

Here are some video highlights from the evening.

Jonas Brothers purify South Park, and a Season twelve DVD preview - VIDEO

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 9th 2009 7:05PM
The South Park-ized Jonas BrothersSouth Park hasn't been too kind to musicians over their twelve seasons on Comedy Central. You may remember the origins of Bono were less than flattering (seem the U2 singer and Mr. Hanky have something in common). Last season, Britney Spears wound up horribly disfigured. And Richard Stamos (brother of John) never hit that high "F."

When the thirteenth season kicks off Wednesday (March 11, 10 PM), musicians will apparently have their revenge. Kenny takes his girlfriend to a Jonas Brothers concert in an effort to get lucky, but has his plans foiled when the band gives them "purity" rings. Can't wait to see what Matt and Trey have in store for the ubiquitous heart pre-teen heart throbs - I'm hoping it will warm the hearts of any parent you had to take their kids to that 3-D movie.

God help us, another High School Musical

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 3rd 2009 5:29PM
High School MusicalYes, it's back. And once again, it's on the Disney Channel.

High School Musical 4 is returning to its cable roots and being broadcast sometime in 2010 in the House of the Mouse. The new installment will star none of the previous cast. Hopefully all the Zac Efron fans won't commit ritualistic mass suicide over this fact.

I've already written of my opinion on this franchise. My only question is will the lack of original cast simply suck in a new generation who have no associations with the original version and from whom Disney executives will feast on their child brains for years to come, or will it suck like Ace Ventura III (admittedly, I haven't seen this direct-to-DVD gem. I'm just assuming).

Honestly, they should get back one or two of the original cast, just to have a sense of continuity between the two "generations" of the films. It worked for Grease II.

An item for those who haven't had their fill of Miley or the Jo Bros

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 19th 2009 11:03AM

Haven't had enough of the Jo Bros. Well, you'll have a chance to see more of them Monday night.Admit it ... you're obsessed with the Jonas Brothers (known in the tween world as the Jo Bros) and Miley Cyrus (known in the tween world as -- Miley Cyrus). You wake up in Hannah Montana pajamas, you eat your cereal with your Miley Cyrus spoon, and you make sure you have safe sex with your Jo Bros' IUD. But, you need more to satisfy your craving for Disneyfied bubblegum rock and pop. Thing is, you fear that you have exhausted all of your resources.

Have some faith, slightly creepy one. Fact of the matter is the Disney Channel is watching your back. Starting at 5:30 pm tonight, the network will be premiering the Jonas Brothers' newest video, as well as Miley's first video from her new Hannah Montana movie. If that weren't enough to sustain you, Disney will be broadcasting the Kids Inaugural: We Are the Future concert, which will feature not only the Jo Bros and Miley, but Demi Lovato and Bow Wow (no longer 'Little').

See? Everything will be okay. Now you can get dressed in your High School Musical pants suit and head out to your job as CEO of a multi-billion dollar company.

Vanessa Hudgens talks to Newsweek

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 23rd 2008 2:18PM
Vanessa HudgensIn a recent interview with Newsweek, Vanessa Hudgens talked about High School Musical and Zac Efron's hygiene. (Yep, you read that second item correctly.)

About High School Musical 3, Hudgens, who is currently on location shooting San Francisco, says that she thinks the crew is done after the completion of the trilogy. She also reveals that her character gets accepted to Stanford.

Hudgens also refutes reports that beau Zac Efron doesn't shower. (Has anyone else heard this? Am I just not hip to the goings on of tween dreams like Zac Efron? Maybe I should pick up a Tiger Beat magazine.) She says, "That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Whoever came up with that is completely idiotic. He showers! He showers! ­Believe me, he does."

So, there's no more High School Musical after this one. Looks like Camp Rock, which stars the Jonas Brothers, will be Disney's new cash cow.

Disney's Camp Rock takes down High School Musical ... well, kind of

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 23rd 2008 2:03PM
Camp Rock I know you've all been wondering if the Jonas Brothers squash the machine that is Zac Efron. Well, they can ... kind of. Camp Rock averaged 8.9 million viewers on Friday night. That's more viewers than High School Musical, which had 7.8 million for its debut. However, 8.9 million pales in comparison to last summer's 17.2 million (ZOMG!) viewers for High School Musical 2. And it proves that the Efron is unstoppable and more bankable. In fact, High School Musical 2 is the most watched non-sports program on cable.

Joal Ryan of E! Online points out that Camp Rock could still beat High School Musical overall, "The Jonas Brothers are far bigger stars than Efron or any of his costars were in January 2006, when the first HSM premiered." He goes to say that the real test of Camp Rock will be if it has the ability to rule the ratings in the inevitable many, many reruns.

ABC betting on Nick Lachey and High School Musical

by Brett Love, posted Apr 25th 2008 10:23AM

High School MusicalAre you still trying to figure out what to do when all of your favorite programs leave the air for the summer? I was thinking about maybe going outside. I'm told it's nice. ABC has other plans for our eyeballs though. They've signed up Nick Lachey to host a new reality show (I know... boo reality) based on the hit Disney franchise, High School Musical.

At the moment the show is called High School Musical: Summer Session, but apparently that isn't official. Casting calls kick off this weekend, with a premiere set for June 20th. The network is obviously hoping to cash in on some of the success their sibling Disney has seen with the movies. I wouldn't be surprised to see Disney sweetheart Miley Cyrus guesting on the show to bring in her throngs of fans.
