Series: Life With Derek

In which the extreme Tsundere and the extreme Jerkass must become brother and sister. It doesn't work too well.

Life With Derek was a Canadian live-action domestic comedy, produced for Canada's Family Channel, which gained a respectable American audience airing on Disney Channel. The show focused upon two families merging together after divorces. By your average Nuclear Family standards, the siblings don't get along all the time and Hilarity Ensues. The main character is Casey, a perfectionistic, overly controlling, teenage girl who has a rivalry with the titular Derek, her main antagonist, a sarcastic, prankish jerk. The show ran for two short thirteen-episode seasons (2005-06 and 2006-07) and two full seasons (2007-08 and 2008-09).

The Movie, Vacation with Derek, premiered in Canada on June 25, 2010 and made its U.S. debut on Saturday, May 14th, 2011.

In late 2012 there was scheduled to be an official relaunch with the working title "Life With Derek, Again" involving the original cast members in pre-production. It was not picked up for production.
