DISNEY CHANNEL ORDERS SERIES PILOT FROM "LIZZIE MCGUIRE" CREATOR, TERRI MINSKY

Young Actress Peyton Elizabeth Lee Cast in Lead Role

Disney Channel has greenlit a new series pilot from Terri Minsky, creator of "Lizzie McGuire," the show that became a pop-culture juggernaut and helped build the Channel into a powerhouse entertainment network for kids and tweens. Minsky and Michelle Manning (Disney Channel's upcoming movie "Adventures in Babysitting," "Teen Beach 2") will serve as executive producers. The new untitled single-camera pilot, geared towards kids, tweens and families, will begin production in early 2016.

Cast in the lead role is Peyton Elizabeth Lee.

The story introduces Andi Marcus as she's about to celebrate her 13th birthday. She's eager to have a little teenage fun and adventure - just a little - but that may never happen because her strict mother is doing everything in her power to keep Andi from turning out like her older sister, Bex. As a teenager, Bex dropped out of school, left home and now, in her late 20s, still doesn't know what she wants out of life. But when Bex returns home and swears she is ready to get her life together, Andi's life is turned upside down and leaves her questioning everything she's ever known.

The pilot marks Minsky's return to Disney Channel. In addition to "Lizzie McGuire," for which she was a WGA Award nominee, she created the television series "Less Than Perfect" and "The Geena Davis Show" for ABC and most recently developed "Finding Carter" for MTV.
