Disney Channel Orders ‘Andi Mack’

New Family-Themed Series to Debut in 2017

Disney Channel has picked up single camera family themed “Andi Mack,” which centers around Andi as she’s about to celebrate her 13th birthday. But when her capricious older sister Bex returns home with the hope of getting her life together, Andi’s life is turned upside down and she is left questioning everything she’s ever known.

“Andi Mack” is created and executive produced by Terri Minsky (“Lizzie McGuire”). The series begins production this fall in Salt Lake City, Utah, with 12-year-old newcomer Peyton Elizabeth Lee starring in the title role. It is scheduled for a 2017 premiere on Disney Channel. Also starring are Lilan Bowden (“Zombie Apocalypse”) as Andi’s sister Bex, Lauren Tom (“The Joy Luck Club,” “Friends”) as Andi’s mother Celia, Joshua Rush (Disney’s “The Lion Guard”) as Cyrus and Asher Angel (“Jolene”) as Jonah Beck.
