Sydney To The Max Comes To Disney Channel

‘Sydney to the Max,’ A Daughter/Father sitcom – with Grandma Too – Premieres in August on 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, premieres on Monday, 19 August 2019 on Disney Channel, DStv Channel 303 at 17:40. 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 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. Grandma, full of both parental wisdom and wisecracks, has a razor-sharp memory that proves 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.

Caroline Rhea plays Judy in both eras. Ian Reed Kesler is adult Max, Jackson Dollinger is young Max, Ava Kolker is Olive and Christian J. Simon is Leo.

In the premiere episode, “Can’t Dye This,” Sydney wants to radically change up her hairstyle for the first day of 7th grade. Her dad Max is resistant, but with Olive’s help, Sydney takes matters into her own hands.
