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

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. Whatever happens as stated by the actors, they'll have to "Just Roll with It!"

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.

BEATZ 101 is broadcasting a charitable Christmas special called "Christmas with Byron and The Gator" as Rachel runs a tight ship making sure that everything goes off without a hitch like confiscating crew members' cell phones and locking the restrooms. For the main entertainment, Rachel has booked an old boyfriend of hers named Sven the Magnificent which causes Byron to get jealous and Blair to claim that most of his magic tricks involve a trap door. When Sven's magic props are destroyed and Sven faints, Rachel works to keep the Christmas special afloat as Owen works to solve the mystery. After getting alibis from Blair, Rachel, Byron, and The Gator, Owen starts to put the clues together. Because of the crew members make a call to her bosses, Officer Tabitha McKlunky shows up to turn the special into a crime scene. Owen has solved the mystery and discovered that a crew member named Ken was responsible where he confesses that it was payback to Rachel for denying his fellow crew members access to the restroom. Officer McKlunkly was given authority to let that slide as she considers Rachel's actions to be worse. As part of the authority that her bosses gave her, Officer McKlunkly has Rachel subjected to the Festive Face Smasher that was covered in cream. Afterwards, The Gator reveals the call he received from Sir Liam Gooch who states that Rachel's onscreen comeuppance was enough to boost the ratings and donations through the roof.

Guest stars: Lela Brown as DJ Lela B, Victoria Antionette as Tabitha McKlunkey, Kurt Braunohler as Svan, Joe Hart as Poppa Rosenbaum, Mark Birch as Ken, Percy Rustomji as Blitzen the Reindeer
