Netflix Orders Comedy Alexa & Katie to Series


Netflix has commissioned the new multi-camera comedy Alexa & Katie from creator Heather Wordham (Hannah Montana, Reba) for a 13-episode first season.

The series follows two lifelong best friends who are eagerly awaiting the start of their freshman year of high school. Alexa and Katie confront a crisis that leaves them feeling like outsiders at a time in their lives when fitting in is the only thing that seems to matter. Netflix will produce season one of Alexa & Katie.

Paris Berelc (Mighty Med, Lab Rats: Elite Force) stars as Alexa, while newcomer Isabel May plays Katie. Matthew Carlson (Malcolm in the Middle, Samantha Who?) serves as showrunner. Both Wordham and Carlson are executive producers.
