When these two polar opposites try out for the school musical, it wreaks havoc on East High’s rigid social order. In a desperate effort to maintain the status quo, the school’s cliques conspire to keep them from performing. But by defying expectations and pursuing their dreams, Troy and Gabriella inspire other students to go public with some surprising hidden talents of their own.
High School Musical 2 (28 August, Saturday, 7pm)
It’s summertime, school’s out and the East High Wildcats yet again take center stage – this time at the Lava Springs Country Club, where Sharpay tries to lure Troy away from Gabriella and his friends and into a duet
with her for the club’s Midsummer Night’s Talent Show – all this excitement in Disney Channel’s contemporary musical movie, High School Musical 2.

My Life Me (Series Premieres on 21 August, Saturday 4.30pm)
My Life Me follows budding Manga artist 13-year-old Birch Small’s attempts to fit into a world her 12-year-old self could never have imagined. Having recently moved across the country, Birch is dealing with a new neighborhood, a new school, a new way of learning, and a new social order. With her high school friends, Birch and her three “Podmates”, Sandra, Raffi and Liam fumble with their quests for identity as they navigate new social terrain. The dynamic visual language of Japanese Manga comic books provides the perfect complement to this realistic teen world with its over-the-top egos and emotions. Add in the friction that comes with relationships forged out of necessity and there’s a perfectly taut environment ready to crack… into peals of laughter. Each episode of My Life Me focuses on a central issue relevant to teen life – stories from real life, pumped up for the genre.
