Fresh off the success of last week's Zapped, Disney Channel has set an airdate for its next original movie, How to Build a Better Boy. The comedy adventure, starring China Anne McClain (A.N.T. Farm) and Kelli Berglund (Lab Rats) will premiere Friday, Aug. 15 at 8/7c.
How to Build a Better Boy stars McClain and Berglund as Gabby and Mae, science whizzes but social outcasts who dream up Albert, a fake boyfriend for Mae. Then Albert comes to life as a robot soldier — and the girls discover that Mae's dad actually works for the military (which wants to get its hands on their creation).
