"Andi Mack," a compelling story of self-discovery written by Terri Minsky, the creator of Disney Channel's hit series "Lizzie McGuire," will be available on-demand, beginning FRIDAY, MARCH 10 (12:01 a.m. PST), on the Disney Channel App, Video-on-Demand, Disney.com, Disney Channel YouTube, iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. Exclusive access to the second episode will also be available Friday, March 10, via Disney Channel VOD and to verified users of the Disney Channel App.
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."
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.
Joining Peyton Elizabeth Lee in the ensemble cast are Lilan Bowden ("Zombie Apocalypse") as Rebecca "Bex" Mack, Lauren Tom ("The Joy Luck Club," "Friends") as Celia Mack, Joshua Rush (Disney Junior's "The Lion Guard") as Cyrus Goodman, Sofia Wylie ("Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn," "So You Think You Can Dance") as Buffy Driscoll and Asher Angel as Jonah Beck. Recurring cast members are Stoney Westmoreland ("Scandal," "War Dogs") as Henry "HAM" Mack, Emily Skinner as Amber and Trent Garrett ("All My Children," "New Girl") as Bowie.
Actress and Hollywood Records recording artist Sabrina Carpenter ("Girl Meets World," "Adventures in Babysitting") performs the "Andi Mack" theme song, "Tomorrow Starts Today."
The executive producers are Michelle Manning ("The Breakfast Club," Disney Channel Original Movies "Adventures in Babysitting" and "Teen Beach 2") and Terri Minsky. Phil Baker (Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie") is co-executive producer.
The series is from Horizon Productions. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
