FAMILY CHANNEL GETS A REALITY CHECK WITH THE NEW SERIES REALLY ME PREMIERING APRIL 23

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 co-executive producer.
