That Port Charles scene stealer, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) can add another role to his growing resume at quite the young age. Now comes word that GH’s Bechtel is set to co-star in the new Disney Channel series Stuck in the Middle!
Variety reported today that the new series will star Jane the Virgin’s Jenna Ortega and the family sitcom marks a move toward Latino-targeted programming for the cable outlet.
The single-cam series is centered around the Diaz family, and is told from the perspective of the middle child, Harley, played by Ortega. Turns out that Harley is an engineering whiz who uses her inventions to navigate life as the middle child in a large family of seven kids. Harley’s 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.
As for Bechtel he will play the role of Harley’s brother, Danny! The rest of the kids in the Diaz clan are either familiar faces to the Disney Channel audience or newcomers.
Look for the comedy to make it’s debut in the spring 2016 with production slated to begin this November.
