Just Roll with It is an American family comedy television series created by Adam Small and Trevor Moore that premiered on Disney Channel on June 14, 2019. The series stars Ramon Reed, Kaylin Hayman, Suzi Barrett, Tobie Windham, and JC Currais.

Premise[edit]

The Bennett-Blatt family does not have much in common with each other as they go through their every day lives in Akron, Ohio. When a foghorn is heard, the actors break character to have the live-studio audience decide what happens next. From there, the live-studio audience gets to vote on what happens to the family and is presented with three choices during certain scenes. If there is a tie between two of the choices, both of those choices will take place.

Blair finds out that Owen is now friends with her ex-best friend Ruth; however, Owen refuses to uninvite Ruth from their birthday party, sparking a birthday war between the siblings. At the birthday party, Blair tries to have Owen and Byron's tradition in front of everyone, but then finds out that Ruth never wanted to stop being best friends, and that them stopping being friends was her fault. Blair then decides to do the tradition instead of Owen to make it up to him.
