Aly Michalka & Gail O'Grady have been cast in 'Hellcats', a drama set in the world of competitive college cheerleading, according to The Futon Critic. Aly will play Marty Berger [wicked smart, an acerbic outsider'], a student at Memphis' Lancer University who's forced to try out for the Hellcats, the college's competitive cheerleading team, after she loses her scholarship.
O'Grady will play her mother Wanda who tends bar at a rathskeller type snack bar on campus that serves food and drinks. The show is from CBS Television Studios, Tom Welling Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Aww, hopefully Aly & AJ will come out with new songs eventually!
From their newsletter: Hey guys.. so we know it’s been quiet in the 78violet camp but we want to first off thank you for sticking with us. We have some big news and wanted to make sure you hear it first. Now that it’s official, we can tell you we’re no longer a part of Hollywood Records. What does that mean exactly??? Now we have the freedom to take 78violet in the direction we want.
We’re writing and recording new music and are really excited on what’s next. So.. what is next? As for the album we recorded for Hollywood, honestly, we don’t foresee it ever being released. But.. we are continuing to write and record new songs that we hope you’ll love as much as we do.
We’re going to be taking the Aly & AJ website down in the meantime which means the current message board will be removed and the accounts you created on the site will be put on hold. Yes.. major bummer. But we’ll have a new message board and a new temporary site up in a few days that will serve as our main communication with you for the time being. As always, you can get a hold of us on Twitter or Facebook. We love you and are excited to share the new 78violet with you. Xoxo. A+A 78violet
