Disney Channel has announced that it has ordered ‘Andi Mack,’ a new series for kids and families created and executive produced by Terri Minsky who also created one of Disney Channel’s defining hit series, ‘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.
‘Andi Mack,’ a single-camera family series, centers around Andi as she’s about to celebrate her 13th birthday. However, 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.
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.
