SPEAKING KIDS’ LANGUAGE, DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINALS CHALKS UP MOVIE NO. 100.

POPULARLY

STAFF WRITER

CREENWRITER Dan Berendsen has written 11 movies
for Disney Channel, but he still sounds a little awed
when he considers the scope of the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise over the past 20 years.
“I can’t believe they’ve done 100 of them,” says Berendsen, who grew up in Huntington Beach and worked in insurance before following his dream to Hollywood.
Actor Max Gecowets, who lives in Newport Beach, co-stars in
that 100th movie – “Adventures in Babysitting,” a remake of the
1987 film of the same name – and though it’s his first Disney Channel movie, the 16-year-old sure wouldn’t mind if it’s not his last.
“Yes! Yes! Yes! Of course I would want to do another,” Gecowets
says. “Oh my gosh, that would be just awesome.”
One hundred is a nice round number, and so with “Adventures
in Babysitting” ready to go – and a few more in development, including “High School Musical 4,” which will be Berendsen’s 12th
credit for Disney Channel – we wanted to look back at the history
of the popular film series, what it’s created and how it works.

15 MUSIC FESTS TO PARTY AT THIS SUMMER

Summer music festivals are popular places
to catch the hottest live acts, have some fun
in the sun, hang out with old friends and
make new ones, eat some amazing but probably terrible for you food, and grab an ice
cold local craft brew.
Whether you’re up for a day at the beach
where you can put your toes in the sand and
enjoy country music, or you want to check
out the local scenery and mellow rock and
pop artists in a cozy downtown area, or
you’re all in for a blistering hot day on some
asphalt to catch the latest in hip-hop and
dance music – there’s pretty much a festival
for every taste of music.
Take a look through a list of 15 happening
in Southern California this summer.
