Will You Watch the Premiere of 'Hellcats'?
Are you ready for backflips and backstabbing? Hellcats premieres on Wednesday, September 8 at 9PM on the CW. Ashley Tisdale plays a competitive cheerleader who's serious about winning and Aly Michalka is Marti, a desperate girl who tries out for the squad as a last resort because she needs the athletic scholarship to pay her tuition.
"Savannah's the captain of the cheerleaders, so I think she's in her own bubble," Ashley says about her character. "She's been cheerleading since she was little. It's her life. She's a little bit of a neat freak. She's definitely has a lot of layers. She's a little bit complicated, but she's a team player. She's roommates with Marti and they kind of share each others' worlds and help each other grow."
We've seen the pilot and predict this show will be more Step Up than go-team-go. The cheerleaders' complicated routines are something straight out of So You Think You Can Dance, and Ashley dishes about the time crunch they're in to nail them.
"We have a week to learn it, and in the middle of the week that we're learning it, we're also shooting scenes," the 25-year-old actress says. "It's definitely a little bit crazy, but it's well worth it and we get so excited obviously when we perform it. We work really hard; it's fun."
