Title: “Sydney to the Max”
Network: Disney Channel
Season Premiere: Friday, Jan. 25 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EST/PST), on Disney Channel, in the DisneyNOW app and Disney Channel VOD.
Synopsis: 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.
