Netflix debuts the Alexa & Katie trailer
Entering high school can feel like the biggest, most life-changing thing for teenagers. Adding cancer of all things to the social crucible of adolescence might sound extra overwhelming, but not for Alexa & Katie. Laugh out loud and be inspired by the debut trailer for Netflix’s original teen comedy, which you can watch in the player below.
Alexa & Katie is a funny and heartwarming show about two best friends eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. Despite the fact that Alexa (Paris Berelc) is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie (Isabel May) by her side. At times they’re left feeling like outsiders, during a period when what seems to matter most is fitting in. Tiffani Thiessen (White Collar, Saved By The Bell) also stars as Lori, Alexa’s determined and protective mother.
Rounding out the cast are Emery Kelly as Lucas Mendoza, Eddie Shin as Dave Mendoza, Jolie Jenkins as Jennifer Cooper and Finn Carr as Jack Cooper.
Alexa & Katie was created by Heather Wordham (Hannah Montana, Reba) with comedy veteran Matthew Carlson (Malcolm In The Middle, Samantha Who?) serving as showrunner. Netflix has also partnered with the American Cancer Society in launching the series to improve awareness and support for childhood cancers.
