Latin America, get ready for Savvy!
The pop group will be heading to Latin America this week to kick off a press tour. The group, who came in at #29 on the Radio Disney Top 30 Countdown this week, will be promoting "The Wannabes Starring Saavy," which will begin airing in Latin America on HBO Family.
"The Wannabes Starring Savvy" centers on a group of talented teens on the road to stardom, despite the challenges posed by their upscale arts academy. Upon being punished for performing in the student lounge and sentenced to working for free at a local café, the students turn, what was supposed to be detention, into the opportunity of a lifetime. With the help of the café owner's daughter, who likewise shares the dream of becoming a singing sensation, the kids land their first local venue for rocking out.
Although Mr. Moody (Steven J. Scott), owner of Moody's Sweet Shop café, obliges the group to wear different costumes to promote his latest fruit smoothie creations, the band is a huge hit. While the biggest obstacle for these wannabe pop stars is balancing academics with weekly performances, keeping their concerts secret from nosy Principal Pesckow (David LaDuca) also proves a difficult, yet often comical, predicament.
The members of true-to-life pop band, Savvy, comprise the six Wannabe roles: Shaylen Carroll, Gabrielle LeMaire, Mariah Parks, Alan Shaw, Drew Reinartz and Andrew Stern. Since 2004, Savvy has performed over 400 live concerts from coast-to-coast in the United States, including headlining the Radio Disney's "Feeling Groovy" tour. Each episode of "The Wannabes" will feature an original Savvy music video.
