The Secret World of Alex Mack is an Americantelevision series that ran on Nickelodeon from October 8, 1994 to January 15, 1998, replacing Clarissa Explains It All on the SNICK line-up.[1][2] It also aired on YTV in Canada, Channel 4 in the United Kingdom and NHK in Japan, and was a staple in the children's weekday line-up for much of the mid-to-late 1990s on the ABC in Australia. Repeats of the series aired in 2003 on The N, but it was soon replaced there. The series was produced by Thomas Lynch and John Lynch of Lynch Entertainment, produced by RHI Entertainment, Hallmark Entertainment, and Nickelodeon Productions, and was co-created by Tom Lynch and Ken Lipman.

Web-Based Players. It’s become pretty standard practice for major TV stations to offer their own.


Alex Mack is an ordinary teenage girl, living with her parents, George and Barbara, and older sister, Annie, in the town of Paradise Valley, Arizona. While walking home after her first day of junior high school, she is nearly hit by a truck from a chemical plant, and during the incident, she is accidentally drenched with a top secret chemical called GC-161. She soon discovers that it has given her strange powers, such as telekinesis, shooting electricity from her fingers, and the ability to dissolve into a mobile puddle of water. However, her powers prove to be unpredictable (such as when her skin starts glowing brightly when she is nervous). She confides only in Annie and her best friend Ray, choosing to keep her powers a secret from everyone else, including her parents, for fear of what the chemical plant CEO, Danielle Atron, will do to her if she finds out.

While walking home from school, she is nearly hit by a truck carrying GC-161 and is doused with it, thus; giving her extraordinary powers.[3][4][5][6] Among them are telekinesis, the ability to generate electricity from her hands and the ability to liquify/travel from place to place in the form of a puddle of water.

As the only witness to the accident, Dave is often forced to serve as a partner to Vince Carter (see below) in trying to capture Alex.

Filming locations[edit]

The series was filmed in Valencia, California and the Santa Clarita Valley. The Mack home and Paradise Valley Chemical Plant interiors were filmed in a converted warehouse used as a soundstage. The junior high scenes were filmed at Charles Helmers and James Foster Elementary Schools. Castaic Middle School was used for senior high scenes.[8] The house, used for exterior shots, is located in the Westford Place neighborhood of Valencia.


The show's first season (consisting of 13 episodes on two discs) was released by Genius Entertainment on DVD format on October 2, 2007.[9] The set is noteworthy for giving Jessica Alba top billing on the package, most likely in an effort to sell more copies, even though she actually only appears in a supporting role, and only in a few episodes. This was then released in Region 2 on April 2, 2012 and in Region 4 on June 6, 2012.

The first and second seasons are available through's Instant Video section and through iTunes. Episodes of the series have been seen on a sporadic basis on TeenNick's 1990s-oriented block, The '90s Are All That.

Mill Creek Entertainment released the complete series on DVD for the very first time on August 1, 2017.[10]

Book series[edit]

A book series aimed at young readers was released along with the series. The first and last books of the series were novelizations of the first and last episodes, respectively. The rest of the series consisted of completely original stories, tied into the main series through the mentioning of various plot points from the TV episodes.
