Being a teenager isn’t easy, you always feel like no one relates to you and life is so different. But when the Disney Channel is bringing a fun look to that stage of life with a multi-generational family living together. With a great cast, including Caroline Rhea – who many of us remember watching as teens in the 90’s we get flash backs different times in history and showing that while times change, being a teen has similar issues throughout the years.
The show debuts on the Disney Channel later this week, and we’ve partnered with the Disney Channel for a fun giveaway and prize package with items that were popular in the 90’s (and a few making a come back today). The show looks adorable and we can’t wait to tune in and check it out – but let us grab our fanny pack and corded phone receiver and tune in with our family. We love that it tackles different generations and make it more relatable for parents and kids.
Tune into Sydney to the Max on the Disney Channel this Friday at 8:30 PM EST!
Check out the Sydney to the Max Prize Package:
About Sydney to Max:
“Sydney to the Max,” a sitcom introducing 13 year-old actress/musical artist Ruth Righi (Broadway’s “School of Rock The Musical”) in her first leading role, is set to premiere FRIDAY, JANUARY 25 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW. Created by Mark Reisman (“Frasier,” “Wings,” “The Exes”), the series is geared for kids ages 6-14 and families. It also stars Ian Reed Kesler (“Suits”), Caroline Rhea (“Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” “Phineas and Ferb”), Jackson Dollinger (“Puppy Dog Pals”), Ava Kolker (“Girl Meets World”) and Christian J. Simon (“The Amazing World of Gumball”).
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.
Caroline Rhea plays Judy in both eras. Ian Reed Kesler is adult Max, Jackson Dollinger is young Max, Ava Kolker is Olive and Christian J. Simon is Leo.
In the premiere 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.
One reader will win a Sydney to the Max prize package including:
- Sydney to the Max Journal and Colored Pencils
- Cell Phone Phone Receiver (cell phone not included)
- Fanny Pack
- Disney Channel Bag
