A new series called Saturdays is set to debut on the Disney Channel on Friday, March 24, and here’s why your family should check it out.
Saturdays revolves around 14-year-old Paris Johnson and her best friends, Simone and Ari, who hone their roller skating skills on the cool parquet floor of Saturdays, a local skating rink in Chicago.
Together they form the We-B-Girlz skate crew and are determined to show and prove they have the hottest skate routines on the planet in this coming-of-age comedy.
Whether your kids are into the skate scene now, or like me, you’re an old school skater, this is a show you can all watch together.
The series stars Danielle Jalade (“Yes Day”) as Paris Johnson, Daria Johns (“Nappily Ever After”) as Simone Samson, Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends”) as Deb Johnson, Omar Gooding (“Barbershop”) as Cal Johnson, Jermaine Harris (“The Map of Tiny Perfect Things”) as London Johnson, Peyton Basnight (“Sudden Sisters”) as Ari, and Tim Johnson Jr. (“Ballers”) as Derek “D-Rok.”
Saturdays is created and executive produced by Norman Vance Jr., who also serves as showrunner. Additional executive producers are Marsai Martin, Josh Martin, Carol Martin, and Nicole Dow for Genius Entertainment.
The series will debut Friday, March 24 on Disney Channel with back-to-back episodes starting at 8:30 ET/7:30 CT. Episodes one through six will also be available March 25 on Disney+.
The Disney Channel has released a trailer for the series introducing all of the characters and showcasing some amazing wheel skills:
