Hellcats update!

Just Jared Jr. caught up with Aly and Robbie at the event, and in Part 1 of their interview, Aly had this to say about filming Hellcats:

For the pilot, I actually twisted my ankle really bad. I’m fine now, but for a month I was icing my ankle and wrapping it every which way. In the dance section where Marti auditions or tries out for the team, I was actually wearing a wrap underneath my cargo pants. I just hurt my ankle like four days earlier so I conserved my energy and just decided to go out there and kill it. But that was a tough week.

[Ashley and I have] known each other for years, so it’s great. It’s an amazing experience to work with someone you just truly and genuinely enjoy being around. There’s that comradeship on and off set as well.

Aly talks to Hollywood Teen'Zine about her newfound respect for cheerleaders:

Thanks to Hellcats Fans, we now have the title of the Hellcats pilot, and a synopsis of the episode:

Hellcats 1x01: A World Full of Strangers

ALY MICHALKA (“BANDSLAM”) AND ASHLEY TISDALE (“HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL”) STAR IN A NEW COMING-OF-AGE DRAMA — Marti Perkins (Michalka), a law student at Lancer University, discovers that her scholarship has been cancelled and her well-meaning but irresponsible mother, Wanda (Gail O’Grady, “NYPD Blue,” “American Dreams”) has neglected to inform her. Broke and out of options, Marti realizes the only way she can stay in school is to win a place on the Hellcats – Lancer’s legendary cheer squad – and the scholarship that comes with it. Despite a confrontation with the Hellcats peppy team captain, Savannah (Tisdale), Marti wins over coach Vanessa Lodge (Sharon Leal, “Dreamgirls”), makes the squad and is thrust into a competitive world unlike anything she has ever known. With her best friend Dan (Matt Barr, “Harper’s Island”) by her side, Marti navigates her new world as a cheerleader and Savannah’s new roommate, while trying to avoid any interaction with squad member Alice Verdura (Heather Hemmens, “CSI: Miami”), who is instantly jealous when she realizes that Marti has caught the eye of Alice’s ex-boyfriend Lewis Flynn (Robbie Jones, “One Tree Hill”). Allan Arkush directed the episode written by Kevin Murphy (#101).

This promo was playing this weekend on one of the big screens at L.A. Live, an entertainment complex next to the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Thanks to Miss Tisdale for recording it and posting it on YouTube for everyone to see! There was no audio. Hellcats "Jump":

Thanks for all the Hellcat updates. It's nice to have the title and synopsis too and Aly is a stunning young women.

Don't laugh, but yesterday I was on I Heart Radio on my iPhone and there was a pop up Hellcats ad on my screen. I got all excited. hahahah

Only two weeks until the premiere! I'm excited!

I would be the same way. :D I keep meaning to go to the mall to see if they have any Hellcats posters up.

I know it's super superficial, but Aly is just so damn beautiful.

She really is. And she has something more as well. Like Tom, she has a quality that captivates me whenever she's on the screen. He chose his leading lady well.

Very attractive cast, the lot of them!

They are! And I think they're very appealing actors as well. The casting on this show promises to be one of its greatest strengths, much as it is on Smallville.

Ah, the publicity circus.

The Hellcats actors keep flying back and forth between Vancouver and L.A., sometimes making the round trip in less than 24 hours. Even Tom did it for the TCAs! Aly and Ashley bear the biggest burden, and they're very good sports about it. I hope it helps raise awareness of the show, and translates into ratings.

I hope the cast do a promo-tour, like the cast of Vampire Diaries. Here in Brazil we never had anything related to TV shows. Would be nice if The CW to do something like this with Hellcats cast to promote the show!

That promo tour was a big hit, and created a lot of buzz for The Vampire Diaries. It wouldn't surprise me if the CW put something similar together for Hellcats.
