Alloy Entertainment and Coin Flip Productions are teaming up with Disney Channel on the upcoming TV movie “Frenemies,” which will begin principal photography on April 9, 2011 in Toronto, Ontario. Casting calls have gone out in Los Angeles for all of the films starring roles. Supporting roles, day players, extras and stand-ins will all be cast as production moves forward.
Bob Levy and Leslie Morgenstein will oversee production for Alloy Entertainment. Jonathan Hackett will co-produce. Hacket is an award-winning producer who has worked on several Disney Channel productions including the recently completed Ashley Tisdale starring vehicle “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure,” “Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars,” and “Aaron Stone”.
Coin Flip Productions Ltd, the company that brought you Camp Rock 2 starring the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato, have opened a production office in Toronto. Coin Flip Productions Ltd is a company that came into existence for the Camp Rock films shot in Toronto. It was originally named Summer Camp Productions Ltd, but was changed to Coin Flip Productions Ltd on February 2, 2009 according to the Industry Canada Government website. The company name change was presumably and understandably made to deter the hoards of Jonas Brothers fans from invading the film sets and shooting locations.
