Alerting all parents! Disney Channel is gradually becoming another Freeform Network. Adult content is included in the new upcoming Disney Channel show “Andi Mack,” which premiered last month.
The big family secret this program focuses on is content not suitable for a kids’ network. This show includes enough drama to be categorized as a kiddie soap opera rather than a children’s program.
According to a recent article in TVLine, Disney Channel’s upcoming series Andi Mack will be Disney Channel’s “most adult show yet.” The show’s storyline will feature a 13-year-old girl named Andi learning that the woman whom she thought was her older sister became pregnant as a teen and is actually her mother, while the woman Andi assumed was her mother is actually her grandmother. The first season will gradually build to the revelation of the identity of Andi’s father.
While series creator Terri Minsky (creator of the Disney Channel series Lizzie McGuire) claims that “We’re not going to say where babies come from,” she adds that “I can’t say for a fact that we’ll never talk about sex … We don’t specifically say the words ‘pregnant teenager,’ but we have conversations about invasion of privacy and how she left home.”
Indeed, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and the National Center on Adoption and Permanency were key players in helping Minsky write the show.
