Disney Channel is bringing a new original movie to the small screen. Bad Hair Day will feature popular actresses Laura Marano (Austin & Ally) and Leigh-Allyn Baker (Good Luck Charlie).

The Disney feature is scheduled to premiere in 2015. Baker, who plays the mom on Good Luck Charlie (pictured), is a first-time executive producer.

The movie features Marano as a high school tech whiz who wants to be the prom queen. But on the big day, everything goes wrong, starting with an epically bad hair day and a ruined prom dress. The teen soon comes to rely on a down-on-her-luck cop (Baker) who’s in pursuit of a missing necklace that Marano unwittingly has in her possession.

To be filmed in Montreal, Canada, Bad Hair Day will be directed by Erik Canuel (Bon Cop, Bad Cop) and produced by Muse Entertainment. The writers are Eric M. Gardner, Steven H. Wilson and Billy and Matt Eddy (Zapped, Teen Beach 2). Along with Baker, Joel Rice, Denise Carlson, Dawn Wolfrom and Michael Prupas also serve as executive producers for the movie.
