TV Veteran Joins New Pop Sitcom; Disney Sitcom Returns in October

Jane Seymour

She's captivated audiences as a Bond girl, a Medicine Woman and an Emmy(R) and two-time Golden Globe(R) winning actress - and now Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman) returns to television in Pop's newest scripted comedy, Let's Get Physical, which begins production in Halifax, Nova Scotia today. The eight-episode original series is set to premiere on Pop TV next year. Created by Ben Newmark, Dan Newmark and Connor Pritchard, Let's Get Physical centers on slacker Joe Force who makes a reluctant comeback in the fitness industry after his dad, Colonel Tom Force, a.k.a. "The Godfather of Aerobics," unexpectedly passes away and wills his son the broken-down family gym. The modern-day comedy, which captures the zeitgeist of '80s competitive aerobics, also stars Matt Jones (Breaking Bad, Mom), Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley, Episodes) and AnnaLynne McCord (90210, Nip/Tuck). Seymour stars as Janet Force, the mother of the series protagonist, Joe (played by Jones). Janet is a former Miss Texas Beauty Pageant winner who is obsessed with maintaining the family fitness legacy and anti-aging remedies.

Andi Mack, the series that has captivated kids and families, makes its season premiere with a one-hour episode Friday, October 27 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT, on Disney Channel and the Disney Channel app (9:00 p.m. EDT).

Andi Mack stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Lilan Bowden, Lauren Tom, Joshua Rush, Sofia Wylie and Asher Angel. Recurring stars include Stoney Westmoreland, Emily Skinner and Trent Garrett. The cast is featured in the music video for the popular Andi Mack theme song "Tomorrow Starts Today," premiering Friday, OCtober 20, on Disney Channel and DisneyMusicVEVO. The song is performed by Hollywood Records artist Sabrina Carpenter and will also be released as a single on October 20.

The first season introduced Andi on the eve of her 13th birthday just as she learns that her older sister Bex is actually her mother. This revelation puts Andi on an unfamiliar path of self-discovery which she navigates with the help of her two best friends, Cyrus and Buffy, and her loving family. Season one culminated with Andi convinced that her parents Bex and Bowie are destined to be together. Meanwhile, Andi's middle school crush, Jonah Beck, has just broken up with his girlfriend, Amber. In the season two premiere, Andi encourages Bowie to plan a future with Bex, Cyrus introduces his girlfriend, Iris, to Andi and Buffy; and Jonah invites Andi to the Space Otters' party.
