TORONTO, April 4 /CNW/ - The camera catches all in Family Channel's new live-action series Really Me, premiering Saturday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT. The original series from Canadian producer Fresh TV follows Maddy
Cooper, a teenager who experiences fame, adoration and more than a few
embarrassing moments when she wins her own reality television series.
Maddy (Sydney Imbeau), is an ordinary-turned-famous 15-year-old who wins
the ultimate prize of landing her own reality TV show. When she and her
best friend Julia (Kiana Madeira) become stars on VTV's brand new
reality series, Maddy quickly realizes that actually getting on the
screen can be tough with a family of scene-stealers. It is not only the
camera-hogging antics of her popular older brother, Brody, her
wise-beyond-his-years little brother, Clarke, and her former hockey
star father, Ray, that Maddy needs to look out for but also the crazy
episode ideas of the ratings-hungry producer, Charlene.
In the series premiere episode "A Star is Born," airing Saturday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT, high school best friends Maddy and Julia enter a contest and win their
own reality TV show and soon they discover the ups and downs that come
with fame. New episodes of Really Me will continue to air Sundays at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Commissioned by Family Channel, Really Me was developed by Fresh TV - the company behind My Babysitter's A Vampire, Total Drama Island and 6TEEN. The show's co-creators Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch and producer
by Brian Irving are all partners at Fresh. Brian Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) serves as the director and creative producer, and Alice Prodanou as
