This March Break, frizz meets feds in the new Disney Channel Original Movie Bad Hair Day. Premiering Friday, March 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the comedic caper stars Laura Marano (Austin & Ally) as Monica, a high school tech-whiz whose prom day abruptly shifts into a wild ride across town thanks to a down-on-her-luck cop (Leigh-Allyn Baker, Good Luck Charlie) and a cunning jewel thief. The buddy comedy headlines Family Channel ’s Mega March Break lineup, a not-to-be-missed programming event overflowing with magnificent marathons and exciting episodes from the network’s top series.
Monica has everything ready for prom except for the perfect hairstyle. After testing multiple up-dos she wakes up on prom day to her worst nightmare – the most horrible hair day ever. Desperate to fix it, and with no way to get to the salon, she teams up with Liz, a disgraced ex-cop who shows up at her door looking for a multi-million dollar necklace. Together, the unlikely pair races around town as they try to protect the necklace from a villainous jewel thief and get Monica to her prom on time, leading them to discover they have much more in common than a missing necklace.
Filmed in Montreal, Bad Hair Day features a predominantly Canadian cast including:
- Christian Campbell (White Collar) as the jewel thief, Pierce
- Kiana Madeira (Really Me) as Monica’s best friend, Sierra
- Christian Paul (Death Race) as Liz’s former patrol partner, Ed
