Newcomer Peyton Elizabeth Lee stars as Andi Mack, a girl whose life goes from routine to roller coaster overnight. In the serialized story, Andi is contemplative and artistic and sheltered by overprotective parents. But on the eve of her 13th birthday, Andi’s free-spirited older sister Bex returns home with a revelation that changes everything and sends Andi on an uncharted course of self-discovery. At least she’s in good company; her best friends, Cyrus and Buffy, are also figuring out their places in the world. Along the way, Andi learns that sometimes the unexpected is what makes life great.
Made for kids age 6-14 and families, the series makes its television premiere FRIDAY, APRIL 7 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), on Disney Channel. Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “It’s unlikely you’ll see a more honest, more endearing, more surprising or more satisfying story of family and friendship on any kids TV platform. Terri Minsky’s genius is extracting big nuggets of comedy out of the routine of everyday life; and she, Michelle Manning, and the entire creative team and cast have delivered something truly special.”
From Disney press release 25 May 2017… On the strength of strong and consistently growing ratings over its first seven original telecasts, Disney Channel has quickly ordered a second season of “Andi Mack,” the contemporary comedic series about a 13 year-old girl’s typical – and not so typical – life with her family and friends.
