SYDNEY TO THE MAX -- is set to premiere Friday, January 25th #SydneyToTheMax #DisneyChannel #Giveaway

SYDNEY TO THE MAX – Key Art. (Disney Channel)
"Sydney to the Max," a sitcom introducing 13 year-old actress/musical artist Ruth Righi (Broadway's "School of Rock The Musical") in her first leading role, is set to premiere FRIDAY, JANUARY 25 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW. Created by Mark Reisman ("Frasier," "Wings," "The Exes"), the series is geared for kids ages 6-14 and families. It also stars Ian Reed Kesler ("Suits"), Caroline Rhea ("Sabrina the Teenage Witch," "Phineas and Ferb"), Jackson Dollinger (“Puppy Dog Pals”), Ava Kolker ("Girl Meets World") and Christian J. Simon (“The Amazing World of Gumball”).

Set in the present day with flashbacks to the 1990s, the heartwarming and sentimental live-action comedy revolves around outgoing middle schooler Sydney Reynolds who lives with her single dad Max in the house he grew up in, along with her progressive grandmother Judy—three generations under one roof. As Sydney’s preteen pursuits begin to expand with unexpected and funny twists, Max tries to get a better sense of the guidance, perspective and support she needs. Judy lends her wisdom and wisecracks to both granddaughter and son and has a razor-sharp memory that Max’s own teenage antics parallel Sydney’s. Flashback scenes to a young Max and his best friend Leo juxtapose the funny predicaments invented by Sydney and her vivacious friend Olive.
