Disney commissions new teen sitcom, Stuck in the Middle, with Jenna Ortega as a middle child engineering genius.

The Disney Channel (DStv 303) has ordered a brand-new teen sitcom entitled Stuck in the Middle, set to start in 2016.

Stuck in the Middle stars Jenna Ortega from Jane the Virgin as Harley Diaz, an engineering whiz who uses her inventions to navigate life as the middle child in a family with seven kids.

Stuck in the Middle is a single-camera family comedy told from Harley's perspective, as she discovers that her overlooked status as a middle child is both a blessing and a curse.

Production on Stuck in the Middle is set to start in November.

Stuck in the Middle will also star Ronni Hawk, Kayla Maisonet (Dog with a Blog), Isaak Presley (Austin & Ally), Nicolas Bechtel, Malachi Barton (Best Friends Whenever) and Ariana Greenblatt (Liv and Maddie) and is executive produced by Linda Videtti Figueiredo.
