Timmons and Phill Lewis, The Suite Life Movie Premieres Day and Date with U.S. Premiere on Disney Channel
TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Astral's Family Channel knows two heads are always better than one as Zack and Cody set out on
a new adventure in the Disney Channel Original Movie The Suite Life Movie premiering Friday, March 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Filmed on location in Vancouver, B.C., The Suite Life Movie stars Dylan and Cole Sprouse reprising their role as the mischievous
Martin twins. Rounding out the television movie event is an afternoon
marathon of The Suite Life on Deck, back-to-back premieres of new episodes of Family favourites and a
sneak peek of Family Channel's new Canadian original series, Really Me.
The Suite Life Movie sees teenage twins Cody and Zack Martin participating in the
prestigious Gemini Project at a high-tech research centre studying the
dynamic between twins. They soon find themselves connected in a way
they've never been before as when one twin experiences a sensation,
thought or feeling, the other twin feels it too. While this new-found
power helps the boys see eye to eye for the first time, it ultimately
puts them in danger. The Suite Life Movie stars Cole Sprouse, Dylan Sprouse, Brenda Song, Debby Ryan, Matthew
Timmons and Phill Lewis in the roles they made popular in the hit
comedy series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and The Suite Life on Deck.
The Suite Life Movie was written by Michael Saltzman (The Pink Panther, Murphy Brown) and Robert Horn (Broadway's 13, Designing Women and the upcoming Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure). The film is directed by Sean McNamara (Even Stevens, That's So Raven, Zeke and Luther). Pamela Eells O'Connell (The Suite Life on Deck, Family Matters), Irene Dreayer (The Suite Life on Deck, Sister, Sister), Jessica Rhoades (Den Brother), Cole Sprouse and Dylan Sprouse serve as executive producers and
Tracey Jeffrey (Psych) served as producer. The movie was created by Danny Kallis (The Suite Life on Deck, Who's The Boss?) and Jim Geoghan (The Suite Life on Deck, Family Matters) and developed by Danny Kallis and Pamela Eells O'Connell.
In honour of the Martin twins feature-length adventure, Family Channel
is airing seven back-to-back episodes of The Suite Life on Deck beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 25. The marathon leads into a full
