New Comedy ‘Coop & Cami Ask The World’ Premiers Tonight on Disney Channel

Multi-talented young actors Dakota Lotus and Ruby Rose Turner lead the ensemble cast of “Coop & Cami Ask the World,” Disney Channel’s new live-action comedy. The series follows the antics of middle-school siblings Coop and Cami Wrather, who co-host a popular online show while balancing life, family and friendship, premiering FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, on Disney Channel (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), in the DisneyNOW app and on Disney Channel VOD (12:01 a.m. local). The second episode will be available immediately following the series’ premiere (9:00 p.m. EDT) in the DisneyNOW app and Disney Channel YouTube.

Made for kids and families, the live-action comedy follows Cooper (Lotus) and Cameron (Turner) Wrather, two middle-school siblings who co-host Coop’s online show “Would You Wrather.” With the help of their little brother Ollie and Coop’s best friend Fred, the duo present out-of-the-box questions and results to the show’s millions of followers (aka Wratherheads) who help them solve life problems – both mundane and madcap. Every day is an adventure in the Wrather’s hectic household, which also includes their older sister Charlotte and mom, Jenna. Whatever the question or result, Coop and Cami tackle adolescence and everyday family situations with humor and heart.

Also starring are Olivia Sanabia (“Just Add Magic”) as their older sister Charlotte; Albert Tsai (“Dr. Ken”) as Coop’s best friend Fred; Paxton Booth (“The Toy Box”) as their little brother Ollie and Rebecca Metz (“Better Things”) as their mom Jenna.

In the premiere episode, Cooper and Cami are preparing for their school dance when they learn their mom is ready to start dating again, now that it’s been two years since their father passed away. Much to their chagrin, her first date happens to be with their principal. Not sure what to do, they turn to the Wratherheads for advice, asking “Would you Wrather have your mom date the principal or take your mom to the school dance?”

Series creators Boyce Bugliari and Jamie McLaughlin (“The Haunted Hathaways”) serve as executive producers and showrunners. The multi-camera series is also executive produced by Dan Cross & Dave Hoge (“The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex,” “The Thundermans”). Greg Schaffer (“Lab Rats: Elite Force”) is co-executive producer.

Season one of the series will include a new music video, a series of live-action shorts and interactive challenges.

The second episode will be available in the DisneyNOW app and on Disney Channel YouTube immediately following the premiere episode (9:00 p.m. EDT). In the second episode, Cami’s chances to win the class election for social chair are at stake when Cooper accidentally reveals that she still sleeps with her childhood stuffed Hippo named Ho-ho during one of their live segments.

The series is a production of It’s A Laugh Productions, Inc. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
