Autism-Themed Comedy ‘The A Girl’ From Brenda Hampton Gets Disney Channel Pilot Order, Sets Cast

  • Deadline
Disney Channel has greenlighted The A Girl, a single-camera comedy pilot about a teenage girl on the autism spectrum. It comes from Brenda Hampton, creator of the very successful teen dramas 7th Heaven and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She had three consultants in writing the script: Autism Speaks, The Miracle Project and Hollywood, Health and Society.

Cast as the lead is 17-year-old Stacy Wiener, in her first acting job. Also starring are Dora Dolphin, Australian actor Cameron Caulfield, Faly Rakotohavan, Noah Ziggy James and Amy Farrington. Steven K. Tsuchida is directing.

The A Girl follows the unlikely friendship between two girls who are forced together in a new “Friends Program” in their middle school: Daisy (Dolphin), the Queen Bee, who isn’t used to being told the truth, and Zoe (Wiener), a girl on the autism spectrum who would rather fly solo, and who can’t help do anything but that.
