The 100th Disney Channel Original Movie, Adventures in Babysitting, will premiere Friday, June 24 at 8p. The reimagining of the ‘80s film stars Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) and Sofia Carson (Descendants), and will be accompanied by a “100th DCOM Celebration,” programming event across Disney Channel, the Disney Channel App and VOD that features every Disney original movie ever made. In the new take, teens Jenny Parker (Carpenter) and Lola Perez (Carson) each interview for a coveted photography internship and accidently swap phones. When the Anderson family calls Jenny’s phone looking for a last-minute babysitter, Lola, in need of some extra cash, picks up and nominates herself. Meanwhile, Jenny is already set to babysit the Cooper family for the evening, and Lola’s first attempt at babysitting takes an unforeseen turn. The movie is directed by John Schultz (Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer), written by Tiffany Paulsen (Nancy Drew) and exec-produced by Michelle Manning (Teen Beach 2, The Breakfast Club). It will be available one week in advance on Friday, June 17, to verified users on the Disney Channel app and via VOD. The Adventures in Babysitting premiere telecast is sponsored by Post Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles.
