The original working title for the series was Sketchpad!, and the original name for the main character was Molly Munroe. The show's title was later changed to Welcome to Mollywood, and then an article in Tiger Beat stated Lovato would be starring in "Mollywood". The lead character's name was then changed Holli and the title changed once again to Welcome to Holliwood. The main character's name was later changed to Sonny Munroe, and the show's title was changed a final time to Sonny with a Chance.
Sonny With a Chance has a show-within-a-show, So Random!, complete with fully-produced sketches. Sonny With a Chance's executive producer Brian Robbins previously wrote for and served as an executive producer on the real-life kids sketch comedy series All That for Nickelodeon.
Gary Marsh, president of entertainment, Disney Channel Worldwide, stated "This series is rooted in one of the core thematic attributes that we stand for, which is following your dream, there also was the opportunity to do a hybrid show." The show began production on September 15, 2008 and the first season was taped at Stage 11 at NBC Studios in Burbank, California; for the second season, the show's production moved to Hollywood Center Studios in Hollywood, California, where The Suite Life on Deck, Wizards of Waverly Place and JONAS are also taped.
Shows within the show
So Random! is the fictional TV sketch comedy show featured within Disney's Sonny With a Chance. This is similar to other kids' sketch television series such as All That, The Amanda Show, and You Can't Do That on Television, or a child-oriented version of Saturday Night Live and MadTV in which cast members perform scripted comedy sketches. The fact that the sketches are often short makes it a quickfire sketch show, like the Australian shows Comedy Inc. or Fast Forward. So Random! sketches featured in episodes of Sonny With a Chance often focus on absurd situations. Nico, Grady, Zora, Tawni, and Sonny, the five regular stars of So Random!, perform and help to write and edit the show's sketch.
So Random! and a drama called MacKenzie Falls' had a rivalry for two years because MacKenzie Falls often criticizes the cast of So Random! for being on a comedy show, claiming that they're not real actors. The two shows got closer when Sonny tried to make things better and because of Sonny and Chad's on-and-off "relationship". Both may have crushes on each other as seen on episode called "Sonny: So Far". They continue to fall for one another and in upcoming season 2 episode "Falling For The Falls" Part 1 & 2 when Chad asks Sonny out, but this leads into another mishap.
Mackenzie Falls is a fictional popular prime time drama aimed at tweens starring Chad Dylan Cooper as Mackenzie. The only other known cast members are Portlyn, Chloe, Penelope, Trevor, and Devon. The show films on a soundstage adjacent to So Random! The Guardian describes Mackenzie Falls as "basically every teen drama from Dawson's Creek to Gossip Girl shoved into a blender". Mackenzie Falls' far-fetched and confusing plots parody those of teen dramas and prompt Tawni to ask Chad, "What is your show even about?" Although a Mackenzie Falls episode has never been aired during Sonny With a Chance, the Mackenzie Falls season finale cliffhanger short is included as a bonus feature on the Season 1 DVD.
A longstanding rivalry exists between the cast of Mackenzie Falls and that of So Random!. The cast of Mackenzie Falls often criticizes the cast of So Random! for being on a comedy show, claiming that they're not real actors. The show also was nominated for a Tween choice award against So Random and won, which caused the rivalry to grow even more. Mackenzie Falls cast members all exhibit snobbish behavior and are afraid that So Random! will become more popular than Mackenzie Falls. Chad Dylan Cooper acts as the leader, since the other cast members follow his cues. The upscale Mackenzie Falls studio includes a chocolate fountain, gourmet snacks, massage room, and a meditation room for its actors. The studio cook enjoys Mackenzie Falls more than So Random! and therefore expresses favoritism for the former cast, demonstrated when she fed the Mackenzie Falls cast dishes such as steak and lobster and the So Random! cast dog food and "chicken knuckles." Mackenzie Falls and So Random! got closer when Sonny joined the cast of So Random!, mainly because of Sonny and Chad's on again/off again sometimes more-than-friendship. They eventually start to date when Chad accidentally asked Sonny out, when Sonny was talking about Chads television show in "Falling for the Falls". In "The Legend Of Candy Face" a parody sketch is made by the cast of So Random!, called "Mackenzie Stalls".
Disney has created a web site that reflects websites for other Disney shows. Characters listed along with Chad Dylan Cooper in Mackenzie Falls are Devon, who is always jealous of his half-brother, Mackenzie; Penelope, the former love interest; Chloe, the new girl who is not as rich as the others (her father is worth only $10 million) and therefore she is hated by Penelope, yet wants to be with Mackenzie, and Mackenzie's best friend, Trevor.
