Disney Channel Sitcom Gets Date; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of January 25, 2016)

We now have a date for the new Disney sitcom we mentioned. Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin) stars as inventive tween Harley Diaz, the middle child in a bustling household of nine, in the engaging, single-camera comedy series Stuck in the Middle. A full episode preview will air Sunday, February 14 at 8:45 p.m. EST on Disney Channel, immediately following the channel's premiere of Disney's Academy Award(R)-winning animated film Frozen at 7:00 p.m. EST. The Stuck in the Middle preview episode will be on WATCH Disney Channel and WATCHDisneyChannel.com, available to users on tablets, phones, set top boxes and computers, beginning Sunday, February 14. Stuck in the Middle will air in its regular time slot beginning Friday, March 11 at 9:00 p.m. EST on Disney Channel.

Told from Harley's point of view, the slice of life stories find humor in everyday life as this middle child devises creative ways to cope with - and stand out - in her family's busy suburban Massachusetts household. The Diaz parents, Suzy and Tom, also have six other kids: Rachel the self-involved eldest; Georgie, a basketball-playing teen; Ethan, Harley's closest ally; invincible and indestructible twins Lewie and "Beast"; and the strong-willed youngest sibling, Daphne. In the preview episode, avid inventor Harley is all set to accept a community award, but must first devise a way to get her family out of the house and to the ceremony on time. In addition to Jenna Ortega, the series stars Isaak Presley (Austin & Ally) as Ethan Diaz, Ronni Hawk as Rachel Diaz, Kayla Maisonet (Dog With A Blog) as Georgie Diaz, Nicolas Bechtel (General Hospital) as Lewie Diaz, Malachi Barton (The Young and the Restless) as "Beast" Diaz, Ariana Greenblatt (Liv and Maddie) as Daphne Diaz, Cerina Vincent (Mike and Molly) as Suzy Diaz, and Joe Nieves (How I Met Your Mother) as Tom Diaz.
