Over the past two decades, Disney Channel has launched a whole host of young actors to fame. From the now grownup "The New Mickey Mouse Club" alumni group of Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera to the more recent tween icons like Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, the Mouse House has been a star-making machine. Their next big thing, however, falls more in line with the another division of Disney icon: the anthropomorphic character.
From Mickey Mouse all the way up through Ratatouille (not to mention newly re-crowned box office champ "The Lion King"), Disney has long traded on giving animals human traits. They often do things like drive, have jobs and talk on the phone, and in a sign of the times, their newest animal star will be a blogger.
According to Deadline, Disney Channel has ordered a pilot called, well, "Dog With A Blog," about a dog that keeps a web log (also known as a blog). He will give his perspective on his newly formed family, with polar opposite teens suddenly thrust together through parents' remarriage. Presumably, he'll also put up links to his Yelp reviews of the best places to poop in the park and Spotify lists of sounds too high pitched for human ears.
