Disney Channel has ordered new live-action comedy series A.N.T. Farm. The series stars 12-year-old China McClain as middle-school music prodigy who gets into a gifted program, Accelerated Natural Talent, at the local high school, and, along with her fellow ANTS, must navigate the halls of high school where they’re not particularly fond of grade-skipping newbies. The pilot was written Dan Signer and directed by Bob Koherr. Production on the series will begin in early 2011.
