Disney + exceeds Netflix in terms of audience
According to the Disney press release, Prom Pact is a teen romantic comedy that takes place during prom season and is directed by Anya Adams (Fresh Off the Boat) from a script by Anthony Lombardo (American Housewife). Mandy Yang (Lee), a senior in high school, and her best friend and fellow oddball Ben (Manheim) are surrounded by elaborate ’80s-themed prom proposals. But Mandy has her sights set on something else: fulfilling a lifetime ambition to study at Harvard. Her father is a powerful senator, and Graham Lansing, an all-star athlete and Harvard graduate, is someone she profoundly resents, so she is determined to do everything it takes to get herself accepted off the waitlist.
Margaret Cho (30 Rock), nominated for an Emmy, plays Ms. Chen, a snarky guidance counsellor who assists Mandy in pursuing a place at Harvard. Arica Himmel (mixed-ish) and Jason Sakaki (Devil in Ohio) will play Mandy’s best friends Zenobia and Charles, respectively, while Monique Green (Big Shot) will play the popular cheerleader LaToya. Mandy’s father, Tom, will be played by David S. Jung and Alyssa by Wendi McLendon-Covey.

The main Character Is A Feminist, According to Julie Bowen.
Producers Melvin Mar (Fresh Off the Boat, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.) and Julie Bowen (Modern Family) are executive producing Prom Pact with their respective producing partners, Rachel Field and Jake Kasden of The Detective Agency and Bowen & Sons, respectively. Lee is credited as a co-producer.
While the game was still in the works, Bowen discussed Prom Pact, saying:
The protagonist is a feminist who rejects the idea of love at first sight. Shakespeare is the inspiration for her rather strident, highly type A personality and her unwillingness to believe, as a liberal, in heteronormative love. But then she gives in, and the chemistry is palpable.
