How to make a Disney Channel show (aka, Disney is obsessed with using the same set of characters over and over again)
Many people feel the need to have a really smart character. It’s important that the girls look flawless, but the guys should look like as much of a geek as possible.
To make the above character look smarter, you can add a dumb character. Make sure to give them a very confused facial expression as often as possible, and let them ask questions that should be obvious for someone their age.
You’ll always need a guy who’s character relies for about 50 % on their looks. Why else would anyone watch the show?
To match the hot guys, you’ll need a girl who is so flawless, you begin to feel like they can’t possibly be real.
The audience needs someone to laugh at, right? This is where you add either a character who is incapable of understanding the word “no” or a character who is just considered a “loser” by most people. And try not to give them too much character development.
But to keep the smart person from seeming boring, we need the rebel friends who doesn’t care about grades, and who always get’s their friend in trouble. But don’t worry, you can always fix it up with a sappy apologizing scene at the end.
There has to be some kind of official antagonist. My suggestion, is you go with Matteus Ward, or at least someone who looks like him. Or you can go with a stereotypical blonde girl.
Every show needs grownups. Keep them there for, comic relief, embaressing the kids, being protective, giving deep motivational speeches and cry upon realizing that their kid’s are growing up.
He’s actually the butler
Not a parents. He’s their sensei.
Not a parent. He’s an uncle.
Add a couple of cute kids and animals
Or if everything fails, just throw in a bunch of boyfriends and girlfriends that we’re all gonna forget anyway.
Or, you know, do something original instead
Here’s trailers to all the shows I’ve been using.
