Disney Channel’s ‘High School Musical’ spinoff series ‘Madison High’ would find Ms. Darbus, the drama teacher character, moving from Albuquerque’s East High to a new school in a different state where she has to rebuild its drama program, reports Variety. Plan is to get series on air as early as January.
Series’ male lead role of a motocross racer who turns to drama as a new hobby went to Luke Benward, 15, & female lead went to Leah Lewis, 14. G Hannelius was also cast. Tisdale’s ‘Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventures‘ will debut on DVD this spring and on Disney Channel later this year.
