    Series is set to launch production in September and will bow sometime during the 2008-09 TV season.

    Lovato starred in a series of shorts, "As the Bell Rings," for Disney Channel. She also appears opposite the Jonas Brothers in the cabler's upcoming TV movie "Camp Rock" and will star in another telepic for the channel, "Princess Protection Program," later this season.

    Disney's Hollywood Records, meanwhile, has sealed a recording contract with Lovato, who hits the road in summer with the Jonas Brothers on their "Burning Up" tour.

    Brian Robbins, who exec produced the hit Nickelodeon sketch laffers "All That," "Kenan & Kel" and "The Amanda Show," will exec produce "Mollywood." Also aboard to exec produce: Sharla Sumpter Bridgett ("All That"), Steve Marmel ("Fairly Odd Parents") and Michael Feldman ("That's So Raven").

    Ugh. I wonder how they plan to incorporate her Disney Channel-required singing "talent" into the show.

      Kind of sounds like an acting version of Hannah Montana.

        They can do exactly what they do in anime: sing the opening and/or closing song or sing the insert songs.

          Not unlike Selena Gomez performing the theme song for 'Wizards of Waverly Place' or Kyle Massey for 'Cory in the House.'

              I just heard her covering "How does she know?" So bad.... It sounds like the producer went into the recording studio and was like "so how can we mess up a song?"

                    I love it when Disney hires people I've never heard about in the slightest. Makes not watching them that less of a hassle.
