Home Sweet Rome!, a delightful comedy-drama, is set to premiere in the UK on Monday 24 July, airing on CBBC and BBC iPlayer. The concept for the series was developed by Michael Poryes, the creator of the beloved show Hannah Montana.
The heartwarming story revolves around Lucy, a 13-year-old girl portrayed by Kensington Tallman, who embarks on a new chapter of her life in Rome. Lucy's father, played by Darrin Rose, is an archaeologist, while her stepmother Francesca, portrayed by Eleonora Facchini, is a renowned Italian pop star.
