Hannah Montana is an American teen sitcom created by Michael Poryes, Rich Correll, and Barry O'Brien that aired on Disney Channel for four seasons between March 2006 and January 2011. The series centers on Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus), a teenage girl living a double life as the famous pop singer Hannah Montana (pictured), an alter ego she adopted so she could maintain her anonymity and live a normal life as a typical teenager. The Walt Disney Company commissioned the series to continue its successful line of music-based franchises. Hannah Montana is one of Disney Channel's most commercially successful franchises; the program influenced the development of merchandise, soundtrack albums, and concert tours. It also helped launch Cyrus's musical career and established her as a teen idol. Hannah Montana was nominated for four Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Children's Program from 2007 to 2010. However, television critics disliked the writing and depiction of gender roles and stereotypes. (Full article...)
