Invisible Sister

The upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie Invisible Sister, starring Rowan Blanchard (of Disney Channel's Emmy-nominated hit series Girl Meets World) and Paris Berelc (of Disney XD's Mighty Med), is set to premiere Friday, October 9 at 8:00pm, ET/PT on Disney Channel as part of "Monstober," Disney Channel's month-long Halloween-themed programming event. The live-action adventure/comedy continues the Disney Channel Original Movie legacy in spotlighting empowering themes for kids and tweens, including the importance of self-discovery, expressing yourself and embracing your individuality. In Total Viewers, six of the top seven movies in cable TV history are Disney Channel Original Movies. Disney Channel has also delivered TV’s #1 original movie telecast among Tweens for 14 consecutive years (2002-15).

Set in New Orleans during Halloween, Invisible Sister follows Cleo (Blanchard), an introverted young science prodigy whose class project accidentally turns her popular older sister and the school's star lacrosse player, Molly (Berelc), invisible. Cleo, who has become accustomed to living in Molly's shadow, is forced to step outside her comfort zone and into the shoes of her older sister to take her place on the day of an important game. As the sisters try to convince their friends, teachers and Molly's lacrosse team that nothing is wrong, they must rely on each other like never before, and in doing so, they gain a better understanding of one another and themselves. Meanwhile, they are up against the clock to find an antidote to reverse the effects of Cleo's experiment before Molly's invisibility becomes permanent. Invisible Sister also stars Karan Brar (BUNK'D, Jessie) as Cleo's quirky best buddy and fellow science enthusiast, George; Rachel Crow (X Factor) as Molly's outgoing best friend and teammate, Nikki; Will Meyers (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Cleo's crush and science scholar, Carter; Austin Fryberger (Kirby Buckets) as Molly's goofy but affable boyfriend, The Coug; and Alex Désert (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes) as the high school science teacher, Mr. Perkins.

Sitcoms Airing Tonight

Friday, July 3

The Dick Van Dyke Show - Now in Living Color! - (CBS, 8:00PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
CBS will honor the memory of legendary actor, producer, director, writer, comedian and Emmy Award winner Carl Reiner with THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW – NOW IN LIVING COLOR! A SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO CARL REINER, featuring two colorized back-to-back classic episodes of the beloved 1960s series, Friday, July 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. As series creator and co-star, Carl Reiner personally supervised the original colorization of the episodes.

The special features “Coast to Coast Big Mouth,” which ranked #8 on TV Guide’s list of the “100 Greatest TV Episodes of All-Time,” and “October Eve,” which Mr. Reiner considered to be one of the series’ funniest episodes. Both were written by Bill Persky and Sam Denoff.

In “Coast to Coast Big Mouth,” Laura Petrie blurts out a top secret on a national television quiz show, revealing that comedian Alan Brady wears a toupee. The episode, which was the show’s fifth and final season premiere, was originally broadcast on Sept. 15, 1965. “Coast to Coast Big Mouth” won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series in 1966.

In “October Eve,” a painting of Laura returns to haunt her when, despite her having posed fully clothed, the artist (played by Carl Reiner) takes the liberty of “undraping” her. The episode was first presented on April 8, 1964, during season three.
