Alexa & Katie Is Not Just A High School Comedy

If your best friend shaved her head would you?

Alexa & Katie is not just a normal high school comedy. It already has been called Netflix’s most unconventional series for tweens.

Best friends Alexa and Katie can’t wait for their first year of high school, even though Alexa is dealing with a secret with Katie by her side.

Heather Wordham wrote her final story for Hannah Montana 7 years ago and now she has a new story to tell us.

Alexa and Katie is a multi-cam comedy series. There is 13 half hour episodes in the series. It follows best friends Alexa and Katie can’t wait for their first year of high school, even though Alexa is dealing with a secret with Katie by her side.

“The idea for Alexa & Katie came to me while I was watching a news segment about two little girls. One of them had cancer, and she and her best friend shaved their heads together. I thought to myself, ‘Wow that’s a best friend story,’ so I wanted to recreate that,” Wordham says. “I’ve worked on kids shows on and off over the years, and I wanted to pitch an unconventional friendship story because I think there’s a white space in the industry right now.”

 

 

New original series Alexa & Katie launches March 23, 2018.
