Peyton Elizabeth Lee and Milo Manheim pair up for the new teen rom-com movie “Prom Pact,” airing on Disney Channel March 30, 2023, and on Disney+ the following day.
It’s the height of prom season, and high school senior Mandy Yang (Lee), and her best friend and fellow outsider Ben (Manheim), are surrounded by over-the-top ’80s-themed Promposals.
However, Mandy is keeping her eyes focused on a different goal: her lifelong dream of attending Harvard. When she finds out that she has been put on the waitlist, she is determined to do whatever she can do to get herself accepted, even if that means asking for help from the one person she abhors – popular all-star jock Graham Lansing (Blake Draper) whose father is a powerful senator and Harvard alum.
Once Mandy becomes Graham’s tutor, she begins to realize there’s more to him than she thought, and perhaps something more to life than Harvard.
Peyton Elizabeth Lee is best known as the title character in the Disney+ series “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.,” while Milo Manheim is known for the lead in “Disney’s ZOMBIES” movie franchise. Fun fact: Manheim joins Lee’s series as a potential love interest in season 2, which debuts March 31 on Disney+.
Blake Draper is an Australian actor who got his start on that country’s popular “Neighbours” series.
“Prom Pact” also stars Monique Green as LaToya, Arica Himmel as Zenobia, Jason Sakaki as Charles, Chelah Horsdal as Mrs. Lansing, David S. Jung as Tom Yang, with Wendi McLendon-Covey as Alyssa Yang, and Margaret Cho as Ms. Chen.
Anya Adams (“Ginny and Georgia”) directed the movie, and is also an executive producer, along with Jake Kasdan (“Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.”), Melvin Mar (“Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.”), Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), and Rachael Field (“Modern Family”). Lee is also a co-producer on “Prom Pact,” which was written by Anthony Lombardo (“American Housewife”).
