Disney XD’s Fun New Live-Action Comedy Bizaardvark

While I was in LA for my recent Disney press trip, I had the opportunity to head over to the set of Disney XD’s new live-action comedy, Bizaardvark. Honestly, I had no idea what to expect, no expectations at all. After I was able to preview the first episode, I couldn’t believe how amazing the show is going to be and how it relates to our children and their online activities!

BIZAARDVARK – “First” – Frankie and Paige begin to second guess their talents as they struggle to come up with ideas for a video they feel is good enough to present during their first VidView party at Vuuugle. The premiere episode of “Bizaardvark” premieres FRIDAY, JUNE 24 (9:45 p.m., EDT) on Disney Channel. (Disney Channel/Nicole Wilder)MADISON HU, OLIVIA RODRIGO.

The comedy follows Paige and Frankie, a pair of fun, quirky best friends with their own online video channel called Bizaardvark. They enjoy writing funny songs and creating music comedy videos to share online. The girls are ecstatic when they reach 10,000 subscribers which gets them an invitation to produce videos at the influential Vuuugle Studios. It’s a dream come true for them!

Vuuugle is a young, hip environment where you’ll meet fellow Vuuugle stars Dirk (of “Dare Me Bro!”) and Amelia (of “Perfect Perfection with Amelia”). Of course, no Vuuugle star can make it without the help of the girls’ friend and aspiring agent, Bernie.

You’ll follow along with the girls’ comedic adventures as they take on the video blogging world. Seventh graders, Paige and Frankie, are best of friends but couldn’t be more different. Both girls love to sing and play instruments. Frankie is witty and silly while Paige is more levelheaded and easily excitable.

The girls have been producing their music comedy videos for three years which gives them a creative outlet for their own weirdness. They came up with the name of their channel while flipping through the dictionary (A: aardvark. B: bizarre… Bizaardvark!). The creative think tank, Vuuugle, is somewhere the girls feel like they can finally belong.

My son is 11 and loves creating videos online so I know he will absolutely love Bizaardvark. I can’t wait for him to watch the first episode! I can’t wait for him to be able to follow along with the video blogging stars. I think this is also going to be a great way for him to get more ideas for his own videos!
