Opposites rock in "Austin & Ally," a new comedy series about an unlikely friendship, singing, songwriting and the adventures of trying to achieve one's dreams, premiering Sunday, December 4 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The series follows polar opposites — an extroverted musician/singer, and a brilliant yet shy songwriter — who combine their talents in an attempt to create a true musical tour-de-force. Starring are newcomer Ross Lynch as Austin, Laura Marano ("Without a Trace," "Back to You") as Ally, Raini Rodriguez (Disney's "Prom," "I'm in the Band") as Trish and Calum Worthy ("Psych," "Good Luck Charlie") as Dez. Prior to the premiere of "Austin & Ally," music sensation Justin Bieber performs "Mistletoe" from his upcoming holiday album, in an all-new episode of the hit series "So Random!"

In the premiere episode, Austin is eager to release another music video, so he puts the pressure on Ally to quickly finish the lyrics. However, in her haste to complete the song, she scribbles down the lyrics in illegible handwriting, prompting Dez and Trish — who are collecting props for the music video — to gather some strange items which they think correspond to Ally's lyrics. When the odd collection of musical props and items begins arriving, they piece together the handwriting debacle and quickly work together to resolve the mix-up.



On Friday, December 2, Disney Channel will offer a preview of "Austin & Ally" with simulcast on Sprint TV and MobiTV (9:30 p.m., ET/PT), immediately following the Disney Channel Original Movie premiere of "Good Luck Charlie, It's Christmas." In the pilot episode, unbeknownst to Ally, Austin and Dez "borrow" one of her songs, record it, create a video and post it on the internet, after which it and Austin become an overnight sensation. When Trish convinces Ally to tell the world she wrote the song, Austin pleads with her to write another hit for him.

On Sunday, December 4, there will be an all-new episode of "So Random!" on Disney Channel starring global music sensation, Justin Bieber (7:30-8:00 p.m., ET/PT) followed by the premiere of "Austin & Ally" (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) with simulcast on Sprint TV and MobiTV.

"Austin & Ally" was created and is executive-produced by Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert ("Good Burger," "Kenan & Kel," Disney Channel's "Sonny With A Chance" and "JONAS"). The pilot was directed by Shelley Jensen ("Good Luck Charlie," "Shake It Up"). The series is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
