Disney Channel’s newest series Sydney To The Max is officially hitting our TVs later tonight, but Celeb Secrets has your first look straight from the set.
Created by Mark Reisman, Sydney to the Max stars Ruth Righi (Sydney), Ava Kolker (Olive), Jackson Dollinger (Young Max), Christian J. Simon (Leo), Ian Reed Kesler (Max), and Caroline Rhea (Judy). The series is set in the present day with flashbacks to the 1990s. It revolves around an outgoing middle schooler Sydney who lives with her single dad Max in the house he grew up in, along with her grandmother Judy.
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. Judy lends her wisdom and wisecracks to both granddaughter and son and has a razor-sharp memory that 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. It’s a perfect show for all ages, as 90s kids will have major nostalgia while the newest generation will be introduced to some of the most iconic things from the decade.
Watch our set visit interview with Sydney To The Max cast below to hear them talk about their upcoming roles, what advice they’d give their younger selves, and the exciting first season.
Sydney to the Max premieres tonight, January 25th @ 8:30PM ET/PT on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
