Details from Disney Channel:
With a track record of creating strong and relatable female characters including Disney Channel’s iconic “Lizzie McGuire,” writer and executive producer Terri Minsky returns to Disney Channel with a contemporary coming-of-age story about a 13-year-old girl named Andi Mack.
The captivating and authentic stories of “Andi Mack,” geared towards kids age 6-14 and families, center on the most important things in any young teenager’s life – family, friends, first crushes and the journey of self-discovery.
Newcomer Peyton Elizabeth Lee stars as Andi Mack, a girl who is about to realize that she can define who she is. When her older sister Bex returns home with a revelation, Andi is left with many questions that jumpstart her self-discovery. She has her sounding boards and best friends Cyrus and Buffy by her side, and each are simultaneously attempting to understand who they are and how they might fit in the world.
Andi was raised in a loving yet overprotective home. Now, with Bex’s encouragement, she begins to step outside her comfort zone, particularly when it comes to approaching the most intriguing guy at Jefferson Middle School — Jonah Beck, whom she quickly realizes is dating a high school girl, Amber. Andi proves that her greatest strengths may be how she accepts life’s unpredictability with optimism. She also finds solace by tapping into her creativity in her backyard hideaway, the Andi Shack.
Joining Peyton 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.
The executive producers are Terri Minsky (“Lizzie McGuire”) and Michelle Manning (“The Breakfast Club,” Disney Channel Original Movies “Adventures in Babysitting” and “Teen Beach 2”). Phil Baker (Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie”) is a co-executive producer. The series is from Horizon Productions. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
