Alexa & Katie 

Review of "Alexa and Katie" 3/31/18 by Eva Diaz now on Netflix

I wanted to watch this show because Tiffani Thiessen ("Saved By the Bell," "White Collar") is in the show, playing the mom of the title character, Alexa Mendoza (Paris Berelc), who is diagnosed with cancer right before entering her freshman year of high school. Alexa's best friend, Katie Cooper (Isabel May) is determined to help Alexa to get through this illness.  She promises that they will go through cancer together. I am so happy that Netflix is adding this to its lineup of family comedies. Yes, you read that right: the show is a comedy, despite the main character having cancer.  They manage to make the show funny, while still showing how difficult the disease is on the person diagnosed, as well as their family and friends.

This show's target audience is tweens and teens, but I think that everyone would enjoy it because it teaches what friendship really means.  That is a good lesson for everyone to learn. I give this show 5 stars out of 5 because I think Netflix has another hit comedy on its hands, and I'm glad that there are comidies that the whole family can watch.


Friendship is the best medicine. 'Alexa & Katie' premieres March 23.

Friendship is the best medicine.

Alexa & Katie launches globally on Netflix March 23, 2018.

About Alexa & Katie:

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 - Mighty Med, Lab Rats: Elite Force) is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal, quirky, and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie (newcomer 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. Created by Heather Wordham (Hannah Montana, Reba) with comedy veteran Matthew Carlson (Malcolm In The Middle, Samantha Who?) serving as showrunner, 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.
