"Lizzie McGuire" Star Turns Back the Clock 40 Years as She Teams with Sister to Appear in Famous 1960 Girl Group
BURBANK, Cailf. -- November 7, 2003 -- Teen sensation Hilary Duff ("Lizzie McGuire") and her sister Haylie guest-star as the Shangri-Las, the red-hot female singing group from the mid-1960s, on NBC's critically acclaimed "American Dreams" on Sunday, November 23 (8-9 p.m. ET).
In the episode, "Change a' Comin'," the Duff sisters will perform "The Leader of the Pack," one of the monster hits from the Shangri-Las.
Hilary Duff is one of Hollywood's fastest rising stars with a current top-selling album, "Metamorphosis," which reached #1 on the Billboard charts in its second week. She also has two upcoming feature films with "Cheaper by the Dozen" and "Cinderella Story."
The multi-talented Duff has been performing since she was 6, quickly amassing an impressive list of television and film credits. Best known for her role as Lizzie in the Emmy-nominated hit series "Lizzie McGuire," Duff brought the same magic to the big screen with "The Lizzie McGuire Movie," and built on her box-office popularity co-starring with Frankie Muniz in "Agent Cody Banks."
Haylie Duff, an actress and singer, is also a songwriter. She has been featured in film and television, as well as being a member of the girl group Trilogy. She is now pursuing a solo career, and has written two songs for sister Hilary's hit album "Metamorphosis," and is currently writing and recording the theme song for a series of Christian music DVDs called "Surf City Summer," in which she will lend her voice as the animated lead character.
This evocative drama, which won two Emmy Awards in its freshman season last year, is set against the memorable, upbeat sounds of the 1960s as it depicts a more innocent America -- as seen through the youthful Pryor family of Philadelphia as they brace for cultural turbulence ahead that still resonates in this contemporary era.
"American Dreams" is from NBC Studios and Universal Television. Dick Clark and Jonathan Prince are executive producers.
