Teen Spirit movie scene

Cassie Scerbo (l.) and Lindsey Shaw have prom on their minds in Teen Spirit.

Up-and-coming talents Cassie Scerbo (TV’s Make It or Break It), Lindsey Shaw (TV’s Pretty Little Liars) and Chris Zylka (Shark Night) star in the ABC Family made-for-ABC Family television comedy movie Teen Spirit.

The television movie tells the story of popular but decidedly mean-spirited high school girl Amber (Scerbo), who achieves the hard-fought pinnacle of her dreams when she is crowned Prom Queen.  Her moment of glory is short lived, however, when a freak accident ends her earth-bound existence.  Amber’s numerous misdeeds land her in limbo, and in order to earn her wings, she’s directed by her guardian angel (Tim Gunn of TV’s Project Runway) to transform fellow student Lisa (Shaw) into the next Prom Queen.  Will the ghostly Amber be able to convince the geeky Lisa to run for Prom Queen before the cosmic clock runs out?

Mean Girls meets Heaven Can Wait, perhaps?

First broadcast on ABC Family in August, 2011, the unrated Teen Spirit is helmed by veteran TV director Gil Junger, who was twice nominated for Emmy Awards for his work on the comedy series Ellen back in the 1990s.

No bonus features have been announced for the DVD of the film.
