Disney Channel Starts Production On New Series 'Andi Mack'

Check out this first look pic from Disney Channel’s new series, Andi Mack!

Starring Peyton Elizabeth Lee as the title character, the new show centers around Andi as she’s about to celebrate her 13th birthday. However, when her capricious older sister Bex (Lilan Bowden) 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.

“As a writer and creative force, Terri Minsky has a one of a kind voice that resonates with our audience, making them laugh and cry in the same scene with dialogue and storytelling that always feels honest,” Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide shared. “When Terri created ‘Lizzie McGuire,’ she helped put Disney Channel on the map with a character that our audience could identify with and we look forward to introducing ‘Andi’ to a new generation of kids and tweens.”

Terri added, “I could have done this show any number of places, but the only one where it would really matter is Disney Channel. Andi only existed as words on a page until Peyton Lee walked into the room. I will never forget the magic of that moment – to meet the character I wrote. Actually, it wasn’t until I met Peyton that I really knew who Andi was.”

Andi Mack, which will premiere in 2017, also stars Lauren Tom as Andi’s mother Celia, Joshua Rush as Cyrus and Asher Angel as Jonah Beck.
