TV show description:
From creator Heather Wordham, with showrunner Matthew Carlson, the Alexa & Katie TV show is a live-action, multi-camera sitcom aimed at tweens and young teens. The comedy centers on Alexa Mendoza (Berelc), who is undergoing treatment for cancer, just as she is about to enter her freshman year of high school.
Outgoing and enthusiastic, despite her diagnosis and treatment, Alexa loves life out loud. With her unique yet steadfast best friend, Katie Cooper (May), at her side, Alexa refuses to let her spirit falter.
At a time when going along with the pack seems to be the order of the day, sometimes Alexa and Katie feel a bit adrift. Still, their friendship both rules and saves the day, whether they’re at home, school, or at the hospital.
Along for the ride is Alexa’s lion-hearted mother, Lori (Thiessen), as well as dad, Dave (Shin), and brother Lucas (Kelly). Rounding out the gang is Katie’s mom, Jennifer (Jenkins), and little brother Jack (Carr). The series explores the importance of female friendships in the modern age.
