A.N.T. Farm is an American teen sitcom which originally aired on Disney Channel from May 6, 2011 to March 21, 2014. It first aired on May 6, 2011, as a special one-episode preview and continued as a regular series starting on June 17, 2011. After airing as the preview of the series, the pilot episode "transplANTed" later re-aired after the series finale of The Suite Life on Deck. The series was created by Dan Signer, a former writer and co-executive producer of The Suite Life on Deck and creator of the YTV series Mr. Young. In mid-November 2010, Disney Channel greenlighted the series, with production beginning in early 2011. The first promo was released during the premiere of Lemonade Mouth.
Taking place in San Francisco, the series stars China Anne McClain, Sierra McCormick, and Jake Short as middle-schoolers in a gifted program at their local high school called the "Advanced Natural Talent" or "A.N.T." program. Zendaya guest starred in an episode portraying Sequoia Jones.
A.N.T. Farm revolves around Chyna Parks, an 11-year-old musical prodigy, who has just become the newest A.N.T. in the A.N.T. program at Webster High School. On her first day, she meets Olive Doyle, an odd girl who has a eidetic memory, and Fletcher Quimby, an artistic genius (but otherwise quite dim) who falls deeply in love with Chyna when they first meet. They soon become her best friends at the high school. They proceed to go on multiple adventures, using their talents to their advantage.
