"Geek Charming" is a Disney Channel Original Movie comedy based on the popular young adult novel of the same name that stars Sarah Hyland ("Modern Family") and Matt Prokop ("High School Musical 3: Senior Year"). The story follows a snobby high school girl who has her perspective challenged when she becomes the subject of a self-proclaimed film geek's documentary.

In the movie, spoiled Dylan Shoenfield (Hyland), Woodlands Academy's most popular junior, accidentally drops her designer handbag into the mall fountain and the school's film geek, Josh Rosen (Prokop) jumps in to retrieve it. Although Dylan would not usually interact with Josh, to return the favor, she agrees to be the subject of his documentary for the school film contest - with the hope that the film will help her win the coveted Blossom Queen crown. While Josh sets out to make a hard-hitting film about Dylan and her social hierarchy, once the cameras start rolling he sees there's more to her than meets the eye.

The "Geek Charming" cast also includes Sasha Pieterse ("Pretty Little Liars") as Amy Loubalu, Jordan Nichols ("Good Luck Charlie," "Shake it Up") as Asher, Vanessa Morgan ("My Babysitters a Vampire," "Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars") as Hannah; Lili Simmons ("Zeke and Luther") as Lola, David Del Rio ("The Troop") as Ari, Jimmy Bellinger ("An American Affair") as Steven, Lilli Birdsell ("The Walking Dead") as Sandy, Andrew Airlie ("50/50," "Fantastic Four") as Alan Schoenfield, Kacey Rohl ("Red Riding Hood," "The Killing") as Caitlin and Andrea Brooks ("The Troop") as Nicole Paterson.

Based on the book "Geek Charming" by Robin Palmer, the movie was written by Elizabeth Hackett and Hilary Galanoy and was directed by Jeffrey Hornaday (choreographer of "A Chorus Line," "Flashdance"). The executive producers are David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (both of "The Muppets," "The Fighter," "The Proposal") and Paul Shapiro ("Detroit 1-8-7"). Mona May ("Enchanted," "Clueless") is the movie's costume designer. A production of Bad Angels Production Ltd., the movie was shot on location in Vancouver, Canada.
