American Mall


-Can’t get enough of TV Movie musicals? Both MTV and Nickelodeon will try their hand at the genre, giving Disney’s “High School Musical” and “Camp Rock” some competition. First up is MTV’s “American Mall.” The musical stars Nina Dobrev from “DeGrassi” and Autumn Reeser from “The OC.” It premieres on MTV on Aug. 11 at 8pm EST. Here’s the description from Yahoo:

From the producers of the phenomenally successful “High School Musical” franchise, comes “The American Mall,” a musical TV movie that focuses events occurring in a local mall. The story focuses on a young singer-songwriter battling to save her mother’s music store and trying to win the affections of a musically gifted janitor. Her task won’t be easy as a mean, rich girl who is the mall heiress plans to shut down the music store and steal the janitor boyfriend. Think “High School Musical” for an audience that’s a tad bit older. Will MTV’s “American Mall” be the next big thing for teens?
