Production is underway on the new Disney Channel live-action limited series Fast Layne, an action-comedy executive produced by Matt Dearborn and Tom Burkhard.

Sophie Pollono plays 12-year-old over-achiever Layne who finds her orderly life thrown into a tailspin when she discovers a sophisticated talking car named VIN hidden in an abandoned shed. With the help of her eccentric neighbour Zora, played by Sofia Rosinsky, Layne embarks on a high-speed adventure to unlock the mystery behind VIN’s creation, filled with bad guys, secret agents and other surprises.

"We're thrilled to be working with Matt, Tom and Travis on this exciting, action-packed journey that showcases two unlikely friends in the driver’s seat of a sentient, self-driving car,” said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, original programming, *** Disney Channels Worldwide. **** www.disney.com “This limited series allows our audience to go on an adventure with these kids with non-stop action, comedy and mystery in a unique genre they haven't experienced before on Disney Channel."

Also starring in Fast Layne are Brandon Rossel as Cody, a cute boy at Layne's school with a talent for fixing cars, and Winslow Fegley as Mel, Layne's nosy younger cousin who is determined to uncover her secret.
