Production is now underway on the new action comedy series, Team Kaylie, created by Emmy Award winning producer Tracy Bitterolf (Emma Approved). Team Kaylie is a Netflix production created by Bitterolf and developed by Emmy nominated producer Pamela Eells O’Connell (Jessie, Bunk’d). Eells O’Connell is also the first season showrunner and serves as an executive producer.
Former The Voice contestant Bryana Salaz stars as “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.”
“I set out to make a show that I would have wanted to watch when I was eight years old,” stated 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.”
Series showrunner Pamela Eells O’Connell began her career in television as a story editor on Family Matters. She’s been involved as an executive producer on Mad About You, The Nanny, Married with Children, and Ellen. Eells O’Connell recently created Disney’s Jessie and Bunk’d.
