Family Channel debuts new live-action comedy for tweens

Look out Lizzie McGuire, here comes Sadie. An original live-action comedy series for tweens (eight-14) is set to make its Canadian TV premiere on Family on Saturday, June 25 at 6 p.m. Naturally, Sadie stars wannabe naturalist Sadie Hawthorne (Charlotte Arnold), a nature-obsessed 14-year-old who observes and documents the behaviour of human specimens at her high school. In her quest to understand the world, Sadie always inadvertently ends up insulting her classmates or dragging her friends into social experiments gone wrong.

Naturally, Sadie, which will be comprised of 26 half-hour episodes, is produced by Toronto's DECODE Entertainment in association with Family Channel. Sponsorship opportunities are currently available and 'it's a particularly good opportunity, considering that the show is produced locally, and thus provides good access to talent for events,' says Marcia Andreychuk, a spokesperson from Family Channel.
