-Check out the trailer for Disney Channel’s newest original show, “Good Luck Charlie” via the LA Times. The show stars Bridgit Mendler & Jason Dolley as siblings in a family of 5 that unexpectedly have a new baby. The 17-year-old protagonist, Teddy, played by Bridgit Mendler, together with teenage brother P.J. (Jason Dolley) and 10-year-old brother Gabe (Bradley Steven Perry), pitch in to help their working parents care for their new baby sister, Charlotte (a.k.a. Charlie). Teddy documents everything with her video camera for when Charlie gets older.
“I like the realness of it. I like the more authentic tone,” said Dolley, who has been in the Disney Channel films “Hatching Pete” and “Minutemen.” “I like the family sitcom. That’s something different for Disney, which also appealed to me.”
Something the show did not turn away from during a recent shoot was physical comedy — specifically, projectile vomit. Baby Charlie splatters Teddy’s jacket as her big sister leans in to coo over her. And then there was a suggestion to up the stakes. “Can we take this a little bit further and have the baby spit up on her face?” Bonnett asked. “I would love to just see it right in her face.”
