In a groundbreaking move for the network, the Disney Channel is set to feature a same sex couple in an upcoming new episode of Good Luck Charlie. As part of the show’s final season, an episode will feature a playdate with Charlie with another child that has two moms. The show is casting for the part now with production expected to begin next week. The episode is slated to air in early 2014.
This is a fantastic move by Disney. The network previously featured a teen with two moms as part of their “Make Your Mark” campaign.
“This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors,” a Disney Channel spokesperson says. “Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”
