“Stuck in the Middle” is a live-action family comedy television series that aired on Disney Channel from 2016 to 2018. The show was created by Alison Brown and is targeted at a tween and family audience.

The series centers around the Diaz family, specifically the middle child, Harley Diaz (played by Jenna Ortega). Harley is the second of seven children in the Diaz family, and she often finds herself feeling lost and overlooked in the chaos of her large and boisterous household.

The show’s unique format involves Harley directly addressing the audience, breaking the fourth wall, and sharing her thoughts and experiences through video diaries. These diaries serve as a way for Harley to express her feelings, aspirations, and strategies to navigate the challenges of being the middle child and finding her own identity.

As Harley strives to stand out in her family, she frequently concocts creative and sometimes humorous plans to make a name for herself. Whether it’s launching her own babysitting business or organizing a family garage sale, Harley’s determination to be noticed and valued leads to a series of entertaining misadventures.

Throughout the series, “Stuck in the Middle” explores themes of sibling dynamics, family support, self-discovery, and the importance of individuality. Harley’s journey involves learning to appreciate her place in the family and embracing her unique qualities.

The Diaz family consists of various memorable characters, including the parents, Tom (played by Joe Nieves) and Suzy (played by Cerina Vincent), and Harley’s six siblings, Rachel (Ronni Hawk), Georgie (Kayla Maisonet), Ethan (Isaak Presley), Daphne (Ariana Greenblatt), Lewie (Nicolas Bechtel), and Beast (Malachi Barton).

“Stuck in the Middle” serves as an entertaining and lighthearted family sitcom that resonates with viewers who can relate to the challenges of being a middle child or navigating the dynamics of a large family.
