Today Disney announced that 17 yr old Dove Cameron will have a double role as Liv AND Maddie in a show called Liv and Maddie. It sounds like Liv and Maddie has some concepts and most of the same cast of the show Bits and Pieces.
Here’s the plot of the show:
The sitcom introduces identical twins Liv, a popular television star whose hit show has just finished its run, and Maddie, an outstanding student and school basketball phenomenon whose popularity is on the rise… that is until Liv makes a triumphant return to their Wisconsin high school. Complicating their teenage life even more is that their parents both work at their school. Standup comic Joey Bragg, and newcomer Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Benjamin King, Kali Rocha co-star.
This sounds like a really tricky concept to film. Reading Dove’s tweets, it looks like she was studying another show with the same idea!
I guess this show and Parent Trap have a lot in common!
She will also be going to New York next week for the Disney Upfronts. There Disney will announce their new shows and line ups for next season.
Dove has just returned to LA after spending 2 months in Utah filming Cloud 9, Disney Channel’s latest Original movie! In Cloud 9, she plays a snowboarder. Her Co-stars are Luke Benward, Kiersey Clemons, Mike Manning, Patrick Fabian, Amy Farrington, and Jeffrey Nordling.
In Liv and Maddie she will be playing a tv star who’s career ended and a basketball player. Dove recently posted a pic of her at practice.
Dove has been on episodes of the Mentalist and Shameless. She is also a talented singer and has a song on the ❤ to Dance the newest Shake It Up soundtrack!
Dove is a sweet, modest teen. Her parents owned a company based in India and she really has been touched by the culture and people there! She lives a simple, quiet life and describes herself as boring and a "home body" on her You Tube videos!
Her life is really going to change now that she's starring in a Disney movie and her own series!
