Andi Mack is a "single-camera family series centers around Andi (Lee) as she's about to celebrate her 13th birthday. However, when her capricious older sister Bex returns home with the hope of getting her life together, Andi's life is turned upside down and she is left questioning everything she's ever known."

Created and executive produced by Terry Minsky, the series will star pre-teen newcomer Peyton Elizabeth Lee.

Lilan Bowden (Zombie Apocalypse) will play Bex while Lauren Tom (The Joy Luck Club, Futurama) will play their mother, Celia. Production begins this fall with a tentative 2017 premiere on the Disney Channel.

Can you believe it? We'll have three Asian American family shows on air at one time. What a time to be alive!
