Press Release: "High School Musical" Star Zac Efron Guest Stars on "The Replacements"
“HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL”‘S ZAC EFRON GUEST STARS ON NEW EPISODE OF DISNEY CHANNEL’S HIT ANIMATED SERIES “THE REPLACEMENTS” SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18
Zac Efron (“High School Musical”) guest stars on Disney Channel’s new hit animated series, “The Replacements” on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18 (8:00 P.M., ET/PT). Since its premiere, “The Replacements” is the #1 animated series on Disney Channel in key demographic, kids 6-11.
In order to get Johnny Hitswell’s attention, Riley replaces the old pool lifeguard with Davey Hunkerhoff (voiced by Zac Efron), a hunky 14-year-old lifeguard she can flirt with to make Johnny jealous. But her plan backfires when Davey actually likes her back – and when he discovers her plan, his feelings are so hurt he closes the pool.
“The Replacements” revolves around orphaned tween siblings Riley and Todd who answer a comic book ad from the Fleemco Company. They order two cool parents – Agent K is mom, a British spy and Dick Daring is dad, a renowned stuntman. Also part of the family is CAR, a super intelligent, super sarcastic talking spy car and Agent K’s former partner. Riley and Todd soon realize that they can replace any adult in their life simply by making a call to the Fleemco Company. The fun loving antics of this unconventional family and the wish fulfillment of kids having the ability to change adults, despite the consequences of those changes, results in funny unforeseen situations.
The series features such well known actors as Nancy Cartwright (“The Simpsons”) and David McCallum (“N.C.I.S.”), making his animated debut as CAR.
