Netflix Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Alexa & Katie'

Netflix has today announced a premiere date for its new original comedy series Alexa & Katie.

The 13-episode first season of the multi-camera comedy will debut on Friday, March 23.

The comedy centers on lifelong best friends Alexa and Katie, who are eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. Despite the fact that Alexa is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal, quirky and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie by her side. At times they're left feeling like outsiders, during a period when what seems to matter most is fitting in.

The cast includes Paris Berelc, Isabel May, Eddie Shin, Emery Kelly, Jolie Jenkins, Jack Griffo, Kerri Medders, Finn Carr and Tiffani Thiessen.

Heather Wordham created the comedy. She executive produces with showrunner Matthew Carlson.
