  • One Teen. One Dream. One Big Break. This live-action sitcom follows 15-year-old Sonny Munroe (Demi Lovato), who finds instant stardom when her self-produced Internet film catches the attention of some major Hollywood producers. Within days, Sonny and her mom are whisked from Wisconsin to Hollywood where Sonny is given the chance of a lifetime: a starring role in her favorite teen-sketch comedy series, So Random!. Sonny's bubbly personality quickly clashes with the self-centered Tawni Hart (Tiffany Thornton), who isn't too excited about the arrival of the show's newest cast member. Rounding out the cast of So Random! is the suave and confident Nico (Brandon Mychal Smith), his fearless sidekick Grady (Doug Brochu), and the original and quirky Zora (Allisyn Ashley Arm). In addition to her fellow castmates Sonny encounters heartthrob Chad Dylan Cooper (Sterling Knight), the star of the drama Makenzie Falls, which films on the adjacent stage. Sonny gets to know the egocentric Chad as she deals with the bitter rivalry between the casts of So Random! and Makenzie Falls. Can this hometown girl handle the trouble behind-the-scenes as well the struggles of stardom itself? Sonny with a Chance captures the effects of her fame on her home and work life and also includes sketches from the show-within-the-show.moreless
