ABC Family's new original movie, "Teen Spirit," is set to hit your TV's on August 7 at 8pm EST.

The movie will be part of the network's annual "Campus Crush" programming event. "Teen Spirit" is the story of Amber Pollock (Cassie Scerbo), who is the queen bee of Eugene Ashley High School, and the only thing missing to her reign is the Prom Queen title. Having worked for years towards obtaining the crown and most popular girl status, Amber lets nothing and no one stand in her way. That bad behavior comes back to literally haunt her when a freak accident at Prom ends Amber's short, nearly-perfect life and, facing an unpleasant after-life, she is given the task that could save her soul – to get the school's least popular girl to be voted Prom Queen. Amber is sure her future is sunk when she learns her charge is none other than Lisa Sommers (Lindsey Shaw), a shy girl who makes claymation films with her three best friends and whose fashion sense is not up to Amber's standards. As for Lisa herself, the last thing she wants is to be Prom Queen, but when Amber offers to help her get the attention of her crush, Nick (Chris Zylka), Lisa gives Amber the benefit of the doubt. Will a head-to-toe makeover and some confidence-building advice really be able to turn a shy and awkward teen into a high school social power player? Only Heaven knows!

Tim Gunn also appears in the film. "Teen Spirit" was written by Kathryn McCullough and David Kendall & Bob Young, and directed by Gil Junger, who worked with Shaw & Zylka on "10 Things I Hate About You."

Make sure to tune in for ABC Family's next movie, "Cyberbully," starring Emily Osment and Kay Panabaker, which premieres July 17 at 8pm EST.
