“Sydney to the Max” Premieres on Disney Channel January 25 + Reader Giveaway

Sydney to the Max Disney Channel

My kids get a little bored with the same old television shows, especially this time of year. So I was excited to see that there’s a NEW Disney Channel sitcom headed our way! “Sydney to the Max” is a daughter/father sitcom – with Grandma, too! – that premieres this Friday, January 25 at 8:30 pm ET/PT.

Sydney to the Max Poster

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.

The show stars 13-year-old actress/musical artist Ruth Righi in her first leading role. Created by Mark Reisman, the series is geared for kids ages 6 to 14 and families (it carries a TV-G parental guideline). It also stars Ian Reed Kesler, Caroline Rhea, Jackson Dollinger, Ava Kolker, and Christian J. Simon.

Check out the trailer here:


Be sure to tune in for the premiere episode Friday, January 25th at 8:30 pm ET/PT! In the first 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. (Sounds like hijinks ensue.)
