Disney Channel will sneak preview its new sitcom Liv and Maddie next month right after the world premiere of its original film Teen Beach Movie.

The special episode of Liv and Maddie will air on Friday, July 19, at 9:45/8:45c, following the movie. The comedy, which stars Dove Cameron (Malibu Country) as 15-year-old identical twins Liv and Maddie Rooney, will return full time in the fall.

In the debut, outgoing Liv returns home to Wisconsin after starring for four years in a hit TV show. Smart, athletic Maddie is happy to have Liv back, but her rising popularity is threatened by the return of her celebrity sister. Joey Bragg, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Benjamin King and Kali Rocha also star.

John Beck and Ron Hart (According to Jim) created the show. Cameron is also set to star in the upcoming Disney Channel movie Cloud 9.
