'Good Luck Charlie' gets renewed, movie

Disney Channel comedy picked up for second season

Disney Channel freshman sitcom "Good Luck Charlie" is getting a second season -- plus an original movie.

Since premiering three months ago, "Charlie" has become the top-rated series on TV among kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14. The comedy, about three teens (Bridgit Mendler, Jason Dolley, Bradley Steven Perry) caring for their new baby sister, averages 4.1 million viewers each week.

The second season will likely debut next year, and in the meantime the network is developing an original movie based on the show written by Geoff Rodkey ("Daddy Day Care") and starring the show's cast.

"Charlie" is executive produced by Dan Staley, Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen.
