There have been a lot of announcements about upcoming Disney+ shows and Prom Pact (title may still be changed) seems like a big one as it stars Milo Manheim and Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Ben and Mandy. Mandy and Ben are in the midst of 1980s themed Promposals, but Mandy is more worried about her goal of getting into Harvard.
Graham Lansing, a popular jock whose father is a senator but more importantly a Harvard alum, where Mandy is looking to go, but has had her acceptance deferred. She will do anything she can to get off this wait list and that seems like it could be accomplished by asking Graham for help. The problem is her and Graham are not really all that friendly.
Love both stars and the story sounds like it will be fun and skew towards a little older audience as well, we are really interested of how Ben will play into the picture, as it seems like the info we have just has him being Mandy’s friend, but not really his role in the story just yet.
“PROM PACT” (Working Title) (Disney+ Original Movie)
Executive Producers: Melvin Mar, Julie Bowen, Jake Kasdan and Rachael Field
Written by: Anthony Lombardo
Directed by: Anya Adams
It’s the height of prom season, and high school senior Mandy Coleman and her best friend and fellow outsider Ben are surrounded by over-the-top ’80s-themed Promposals. However, Mandy keeps her eyes focused on a different goal: her lifelong dream of attending Harvard. When she finds out her acceptance has been deferred, she is determined to do whatever she can do to get herself off the waitlist, even if that means asking for help from the one person she abhors — popular all-star jock Graham Lansing, 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 stars as Mandy, and Milo Manheim will play Ben.
