Disney Channel ORDERS “K.C. Undercover,”

A New family Comedy Series Starring Teen Superstar Zendaya

— Kadeem Hardison, Tammy Townsend, Kamil McFadden and Veronica Dunne also Star —

Popular actress and recording artist Zendaya (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Shake It Up”) will headline and co-produce a new series for kids and families, the live-action spy comedy “K.C. Undercover.” It was announced today by Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. The multi-camera series, executive-produced by Rob Lotterstein (“Shake It Up”), begins production this summer in Los Angeles for an early 2015 premiere on Disney Channel.

The comedy focuses on K.C. Cooper, a high school math whiz who’s training to be an undercover super spy, following in the footsteps of her parents. Each episode finds the Coopers balancing typical family issues while performing undercover missions to protect the country.

Bonnett said, “Zendaya and Rob Lotterstein are a powerhouse combination to produce Disney Channel’s next action driven sitcom. This show has all of the Disney Channel attributes – family, friendship, humor and heart all from the point of view of an incredibly talented and relatable teenage girl.”

Zendaya became a global star through Disney Channel’s series “Shake It Up,” and she went on to capture the hearts of viewers on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” She next stars in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Zapped,” premiering Friday, June 27 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). Her debut album, “Zendaya,” on Hollywood Records, yielded the platinum hit single “Replay.”

Lotterstein said, “I’m excited to be working with Zendaya again. I’ve worked with her since she was 13 years old and have witnessed her blossom into such a beautiful, talented and funny actress. She truly kicks butt in this series – literally and figuratively,” noted Lotterstein.

“K.C. Undercover” also stars Kadeem Hardison (“Static Shock,” “A Different World”) and Tammy Townsend (“The Client List”) as K.C.’s parents Craig and Kira Cooper; Kamil McFadden (“House of Payne”) as Ernie, the youngest of the Cooper family; and Veronica Dunne (“Our Wild Hearts”) as K.C.’s best friend Marisa.

“K.C. Undercover” was created by Corinne Marshall and is executive-produced by Rob Lotterstein. Zendaya is co-producer. It is a production of It’s A Laugh Productions, LLC.

Disney Channel is a 24-hour kid-driven, family-inclusive television network that taps into the world of kids and families through original series and movies. Currently available on basic cable in over 99 million U.S. homes and to millions of other viewers on Disney Channels around the world, Disney Channel is part of the Disney/ABC Television Group.

Hello, my name is Joi Coleman, I live in Prairieville, Louisiana. My dream is to become an actress. I am 14 years old and I make 15 on January 18. I have watched Disney since I was a little kid and I still watch it now. I would love to be apart of this upcoming television series, especially on Disney. It would be an honor to work along side Zendaya and Rob Lotterstein. Many people have doubted me and said I couldn’t do something. They said I couldn’t be a smart student, but I made honor roll 4 years in a row. They said I couldn’t dance, but now when a dance party comes u, I’m the first person they call. They said I could never be successful in my life, but I want to take this chance to show them I could live my dream. Although, I have no experience in this business, I am mature even to take on any role that is thrown at me. Thank you so much for taking the time out to read this, I hope you choose me.
