Entertainment Editors

BURBANK, Calif.--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2001

Disney Channel, the leader in television for kids and families, and Brookwell McNamara Entertainment Inc. begins production this week on its newest original comedy series, That's So Raven, starring television personality Raven Symone (Dr. Dolittle 2, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, The Cosby Show).

Disney Channel has ordered 21 episodes of the new comedy series, which begins taping in Los Angeles on November 9 in front of a live studio audience. The series is scheduled for debut on Disney Channel this fall.

Disney Channel's new comedy series, That's So Raven, stars Raven Symone as an eccentric and offbeat teenager who has the ability to foresee flashes of the future. In most cases, her uncanny ability to miscalculate events sends her family and friends on a psychic roller coaster of comedic turmoil. The series also stars Orlando Brown (Max Keeble's Big Move, The Proud Family, Family Matters), Tricha Dixon, Kyle Orlando Massey, T'Keyah Crystal Keymah (Jackie Brown, Cosby, In Living Color) and Rondell Sheridan (Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus).

Brookwell McNamara Entertainment Inc. will produce the original series in association with Disney Channel. Sean McNamara and David Brookwell, the executive producers behind Disney Channel's hit series Even Stevens will also executive produce That's So Raven along with Michael Poryes (Cybill, Veronica's Closet, The Hughleys). Michael Poryes and Susan Sherman (Boy Meets World) created the series.

Disney Channel, combining original series, movies and specials with timeless classics, is the first general entertainment television network designed for kids and families. Currently available in 77 million homes, Disney Channel is a division of ABC Cable Networks Group, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.
