'Andi Mack' To Tackle Gun Safety In Special Episodes This Season

'Andi Mack' To Tackle Gun Safety In Special Episodes This Season

Andi Mack has tackled a lot of important issues over the course of three seasons – but now its’ about to tackle gun safety in two special upcoming episodes.

The two-ep story arc was developed under the consultancy of the child development experts at The Brady Center and Hollywood, Health & Society, a program of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center.

The episodes include a public service announcement about gun safety, airing Friday, November 16th and November 30th on Disney Channel.

The storyline illustrates peer pressure and a true test of character for Cyrus (Joshua Rush) when T.J. (Luke Mullen) and his group of friends unexpectedly invite Cyrus to join their unsupervised target practice.

VP of Current Series at Disney Channels Worldwide, Kory Lunsford, said that the episode was “inspired by a tragedy that occurred in the family of one of the series writers and, with thoughtful care and expertise, the entire Andi Mack team delivered a story that can provide a means for kids, their families and teachers to open the lines of communication about peer pressure and the dangers of unsupervised guns.”

Creator Terri Minsky added, “Our show is meant to entertain kids, yet we also want to help them make sense of a very complicated world, to make them feel safe and confident to talk to parents and trusted adults about gun safety.”

“I became interested in the news after the 2012 elections,” Joshua explained to YSBnow.

He added, “I was watching CNN, watching all the results come in and I didn’t understand anything that was going on…So I had my laptop in front of me, Googling everything that was going on and I realized, ‘This is so freaking cool! I want to learn more!’ And it turned from an interest to a fascination to an obsession to a complete news addiction!”
