Production Revs Up on the New Live-Action Disney Channel Limited Series FAST LAYNE

Production is underway on the new Disney Channel live-action limited series "Fast Layne," a fun-fueled action-comedy executive produced by Matt Dearborn and Tom Burkhard (Disney Channel's Emmy®-Award-nominated "Even Stevens," "Zeke and Luther") and set to premiere in 2018. Travis Braun ("Vampirina") created the series and will serve as co-executive producer and Hasraf Dulull ("Origin Unknown," "The Beyond") will direct the first two episodes.

Twelve-year-old over-achiever Layne, played by Sophie Pollono ("The Young and the Restless"), finds her orderly life thrown into a tailspin when she discovers a sophisticated talking car named "V.I.N." hidden in an abandoned shed. With the help of her eccentric neighbor Zora, played by Sofia Rosinsky ("The Other Side of the Door"), Layne embarks on a high-speed adventure filled with bad guys, secret agents and other surprises to unlock the mystery behind V.I.N.'s creation.

Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, "We're thrilled to be working with Matt, Tom and Travis on this exciting, action-packed journey that showcases two unlikely friends in the driver's seat of a sentient, self-driving car. This limited series allows our audience to go an adventure with these kids with non-stop action, comedy and mystery in a unique genre they haven't experienced before on Disney Channel."

Also starring in "Fast Layne" are Brandon Rossel ("The OUTSIDERS Club") as Cody, a cute boy at Layne's school with a talent for fixing cars, and Winslow Fegley ("Teachers") as Mel, Layne's nosy younger cousin who is determined to uncover her secret.

"Fast Layne" is a production of Lakeshore Productions, Ltd., a subsidiary of Omnifilm Entertainment, Ltd.
