Netflix just unveiled the full trailer for the new comedy series, Alexa & Katie. The series follows best friends Alexa and Katie who are willing to do whatever it takes to support and uplift each other, no matter what life throws at them.
The comedy series was created by Heather Wordham (Hannah Montana, Reba) and stars
Paris Berelc (Mighty Med, Lab Rats: Elite Force) as Alexa Mendoza and Isabel May as Katie Cooper. The cast also includes Tiffani Thiessen (White Collar, Saved By The Bell) as Lori Mendoza, Emery Kelly (Lab Rats, Best Friends Whenever) as Lucas Mendoza, Eddie Shin (The Man in the High Castle) as Dave Mendoza, Jolie Jenkins (Liv and Maddie) as Jennifer Cooper, and Finn Carr (Peanuts) as Jack Cooper.

The Alexa & Katie Plot: 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 also stars as Lori, Alexa’s determined and protective mother.
The show’s star is Alexa and Katie’s friendship; whether it be at school, at home, or in the hospital, they are by each other’s side through thick and thin, serving as role models for modern-day female friendships.
