heidi and heather burge on Double Team

Heidi and Heather Burge are the real twins on who a movie called “Double Teamed” is based. Heidi and Heather story with the WNBA is remarkable and you can see it on this Disney Original Movie.

The part of the twins is played by Annie McElwain and Poppi Monroe; both of them have appeared on TV before. McElwain on the unpopular spin-off “Saved by the Bell: The New Class” and Monroe in part on “The Last Don”. Now it’s their turn to play twin basketball sisters.

Double Teamed is the true story of WNBA players Heidi and Heather Burge. High school freshman Heidi (played by Annie McElwain, whose past acting credits include SAVED BY THE BELL: THE NEW CLASS) and her sister Heather (played by Poppi Monroe, whose previous acting was in THE LAST DON) are twins in the life. They were not identical in any way because they had different personalities and likings.

IMDB says of the show:

“Heather and Heidi Burge go to an inner-city school where they play volleyball on a team. Their father decides that they need to go to a bigger school outside of their school area so that they can get scholarships. At first the twins were supposed to be playing Volleyball at their new school but then 6′1 Heather is discovered by the basketball coach. Heidi is into drama but is forced to play basketball by her father. It’s discovered that they live out of the school zone so they have to move out of their big beautiful house into a small apartment because their father is stuck on them playing basketball. Can they overcome all of these obstacles and win the game at the end?”
