Netflix sitcom Team Kaylie enters production
Netflix has announced that the upcoming live-action comedy sitcom Team Haylie starring actress-singer Bryana Salaz (Best Friends Whenever) has officially begun production.
The series’ official synopsis reads as follows:
“Salaz plays Kaylie Konrad, a rich, nineteen-year-old selfie obsessed celebrity who receives a community service court order to lead the wilderness club at an inner city middle school. When she is forced outside of her comfort zone in every possible way, she proves to her followers, the kids, and herself that she is more than just the pretty face her domineering mom-ager has always prized. Over the course of the series, Kaylie and her Wilderness Club members will come together to find common ground: they’re all a little lost; they’re all looking desperately for a roadmap through life. And they will find that the only way to come out safely on the other side is to find some good friends to stick it out with.”
In addition to Salaz, the series stars Alison Fernandez (Once Upon a Time) as Amber, a tough, impulsive and street smart student leader of the Wilderness Club who is against Kaylie; Symera Jackson (Sydney to the Max) as Jackie, a straight-A student and rule follower who lives to please people and get into an Ivy League college; Elie Samouhi (Bizaardvark) as Chewy, a bumbling class clown; Kai Calhoun as Ray Ray, a pop-culture vulture who worships Kaylie almost as much as her wardrobe; and Eliza Pryor (Raven’s Home) as Valeria, a would-be witch whose spells are almost as bad as her people skills.
The series was created by Emmy-winning producer Tracy Bitterolf (Emma Approved) and is being developed, showrun and executive produced by Emmy nominee Pamela Eells O’Connell (Jessie) through her banner Bon Mot Productions.
“I set out to make a show that I would have wanted to watch when I was eight years old,” said Tracy Bitterolf. “I ended up with a show that I want to watch as an adult, too, which means Team Kaylie is for kids and adults alike, or that I haven’t matured at all. Either way, I’m thrilled to be in business with Netflix at a time when they are so committed to making compelling content that resonates with kids and family audiences.”
No episode count or release date has been given yet to Team Kaylie, but the series will be directed by Bob Koherr (The Conners).
