Disney Channel Orders Comedy ‘Gabby Duran & The Unsittables’

Live Action Comedy is Based on the Novel by Elise Allen and Daryle Conners

Live action comedy “Gabby Duran & the Unsittables” has received a straight-to-series order, and production is currently underway in Vancouver for a 2019 premiere on Disney Channel. Showrunners and writers Mike Alber and Gabe Snyder (“Kirby Buckets”) serve as executive producers alongside Joe Nussbaum (“Just Add Magic”). Nzingha Stewart (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Good Girls”) will direct the first episode. 

Based upon the novel written by Elise Allen and Daryle Conners, this single-cam live-action comedy series stars 12-year-old newcomer Kylie Cantrall.

The logline: Gabby Duran constantly feels like she’s living in the shadows of her uber-polished, successful mother and whip-smart younger sister. She finally finds her moment to shine when she inadvertently lands an out-of-this-world job to babysit an unruly group of very important extraterrestrial children who are hiding out on earth with their families, disguised as everyday kids. Fearless and unapologetically bold, Gabby steps up to the challenge to protect these youngsters and their secret identities, and prove she’s the best babysitter in the galaxy.
