Ross Lynch, Laura Marano and Raini Rodriguez — the latter the sister of “Modern Family” boy wonder Rico Rodriguez — have been cast in the Disney Channel comedy pilot “Austin & Ally,” which will shoot in February.

Lynch will play Austin, an extroverted singer who teams up with Marano’s Ally, a shy songwriter. Lynch has been appeared in Disney XD’s short-form series, “Moises Rules” and is one of five siblings in the musical group R5. Marano has been seen in “Without a Trace,” “Back to You” and “The Sarah Silverman Program.”

Rods Rodriguez, who plays Trish, best friend of Alex, previously recurred on Disney XD comedy “I’m in the Band” and also has had roles in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” (as the daughter of Kevin James’ lead character) and the upcoming “Prom.”

Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert (“Good Burger,” “Keenan & Kel”) are the project’s creators-exec producers.
