Apple TV+ has today revealed the first trailer for its forthcoming inspirational family comedy “Best Foot Forward,” which will debut on the streaming platform on Friday, July 22.
Developed for television by Matt Fleckenstein (“iCarly,” “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”) and based on real-life paralympic athlete, author, motivational speaker and comedian, Josh Sundquist‘s memoir “Just Don’t Fall: How I Grew Up, Conquered Illness, and Made it Down the Mountain”, the series stars Logan Marmino, Stephen Schneider (“Players”), Joy Suprano (“Fleishman Is In Trouble,” “Hightown”), Peyton Jackson (“American Refugee”) and Trinity Jo-Li Bliss (“Avatar: The Way of Water”).
“Best Foot Forward” centers around 12-year-old Josh Dubin (Marmino) as he goes from homeschool to public school, eager to experience everything middle school has to offer! But along the way, Josh also faces a brand-new set of challenges, including how to get an entire school of kids to see past his prosthetic leg, and get to know him for who he is. With the support of his parents and the help of his best friends, Kyle and Gabriella, Josh learns, laughs and grows, eager to come back every day for more.
