Fans still heartbroken over the loss of Delia Abbott on “The Young and the Restless,” following a 2013 tragic accident that has rocked Genoa City ever since, will finally get a chance to see what she would have looked like as a teenage girl courtesy of Disney Channel. Today the kids network announced the premiere date of the new eight-part miniseries “Fast Layne,” starring
Delia’s long-time portrayer Sophie Pollono.
As part of a first look sneak peek, “Fast Layne” launches on Friday, February 15, immediately following the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie “Kim Possible,” based on the beloved animated series. The show will then move to its regular time slot on Sunday, February 17 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST/PST). Both episodes will be made available on DisneyNOW.
“Fast Layne” follows twelve-year-old over-achiever Layne (Pollono), who is thrown for a loop when her ordinary life is turned upside town after she discovers a sophisticated talking car aptly named “Vin” hidden in an abandoned shed. With assistance from her eccentric neighbor Zora (Sofia Rosinsky, “The Other Side of the Door”) embarks on a high-speed adventure filled with secret agents and other surprises as the girls set out to unlock the mystery behind VIN’s creation. When VIN needs some mechanical attention, Layne enlists the help of Cody Castillo (Brandon Rossel, “The Outsiders Club”), a smart and charming boy who works in his Abuelo’s garage. Layne also navigates prodding questions from her younger cousin Mel (Winslow Fegley, “Teachers”), a nosy survivalist-in-training who is determined to uncover her secret.
The series also stars Nate Torrence (“Star vs. the Forces of Evil”) as the voice of VIN. Recurring cast members include Enid-Raye Adams and David Milchard as Layne’s parents, Cheryl and Rob; Diana Bang as Kwon; Michael Adamthwaite as Riggins; Caitlin Howden as Aunt Betty; Reese Alexander as Principal Mugbee; and Ty Consiglio as Jasper.
Travis Braun (Disney Junior’s “T.O.T.S.,” “Vampirina,” “Puppy Dog Pals” and “Muppet Babies”) created the series and served as co-executive producer. Matt Dearborn and Tom Burkhard (Disney Channel’s “Even Stevens,” “Zeke and Luther” and “Phil of the Future”) are executive producers. The series is produced by Lakeshore Productions, Ltd., was filmed in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and carries a TV-G parental guideline.
Pollono began portraying Delia Abbott on “Y&R” in 2011. Since the character’s death in 2013, she’s made several appearances including in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
