Jenna Ortega, Nicolas Bechtel
Disney Channel has ordered the family comedy series Stuck In The Middle, starring Jenna Ortega (Young Jane, Jane the Virgin) as Harley Diaz, an engineering whiz who uses her inventions to navigate life as the middle child in a family of seven kids. Playing her siblings are Ronni Hawk as Rachel, Kayla Maisonet as Georgie, Isaak Presley as Grant, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer, General Hospital) as Danny, Malachi Barton as Beast and Ariana Greenblatt as Daphne. Production begins this November for a Spring 2016 premiere.

Stuck In The Middle, a single-camera family comedy, centers around the Diaz family and is told from the point-of-view of the middle child - Harley. Her overlooked status proves to be both a blessing and a curse as she maneuvers her way through the everyday antics that come with being part of a big family.

Ortega and Bechtel also starred together last year in FOX's Rake.

Linda Videtti Figueiredo (Rules of Engagement and Last Man Standing) will serve as Executive Producer/Showrunner. The pilot teleplay was written by Alison Brown (Dog With A Blog) and Linda Videtti Figueiredo and story is by Alison Brown.
