A teen enlists the help of an imaginary friend named Larry Houdini to deal with a prank-playing bogeyman, who's framing her for his dastardly deeds.
The role of Larry was not written as black, and when Ty Hodges was cast, director Kenneth Johnson said that Disney Channel posed a question: "What are we going to do about the kiss at the end?" They had concerns about the Southern affiliates being unhappy with the on-screen kiss but then agreed with Johnson that the scene should be kept.
Frances Bacon McCausland:
Middleberg is a middle-sized town in the middle of the country. Middleberg is where I live, and so does something... else. Some people said that Middleberg was dull, that nothing ever happened here. Well, they were very wrong.
