'ALEXA & KATIE' SITCOM
JACK GRIFFO JOINS THE CAST OF NEW NETFLIX COMEDY
There won't be many multi camera sitcoms on the telly in the new season, but one of them will see the light of the day next year on Netflix! I've already told you earlier this summer that Tiffany
Thiessen will play a mother in ALEXA & KATIE, and now Jack Griffo and Kerri Medders have also joined the cast. It follows two best friends Alexa (Paris Berelc) and Katie (Isabel May), who are eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. The friends confront a crisis that leaves them feeling like outsiders at a time when what seems to matter most is fitting in. Jack Griffo will play Dylan, a smart, cute friend of Alexa's brother Lucas (Emery Kelly). Slightly more mature than the average 16-year-old, Dylan sees Alexa’s strengths as well as her insecurities. To Alexa, Dylan is her brother’s annoying friend, but when he becomes her math tutor, Dylan’s teasing makes Alexa see him in a new way. While Alexa worries that Dylan’s flirtation might come from pity, underneath she is developing a crush on him that she’s not ready to admit. Medders will play Alexa's very competitive rival!
