Exclusive: Disney Channel Orders New Sitcom Starring Zendaya

Zendaya to star in Disney's new sitcom K.C. Undercover

Actress/singer Zendaya (Shake It Up) is returning to Disney Channel to lead the cast of the new family comedy K.C. Undercover. In the series, set to premiere in early 2015, she stars as K.C. Cooper, a high school student training to follow in her parents' footsteps as an undercover spy.

Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and Tammy Townsend (The Client List) play her parents, Craig and Kira Cooper. The show also features Kamil McFadden (House of Payne) and Veronica Dunne (Our Wild Hearts). Production begins this summer; Zendaya will also receive a co-producer title on the show.

Zendaya spent three years on Shake It Up, Disney Channel's sitcom about two best friends who land a slot on a TV dance show. The actress parlayed that fame into becoming a contestant on the actual ABC reality competition Dancing With the Stars. Zendaya, the show's youngest contestant yet (at age 16), ultimately was the runner-up behind that season's winner, Kellie Pickler.

Next up, Zendaya stars in the Disney Channel original movie Zapped, which premieres on June 27 at 8/7c. She also released her debut record last year, a self-titled CD that yielded the hit single "Replay."

K.C. Undercover reunites Zendaya with creator/executive producer Rob Lotterstein, who was also behind Shake It Up. "I've worked with her since she was 12 years old, and have witnessed her blossom into such a beautiful, talented and funny actress," Lotterstein says.

Corrine Marshall created the comedy. Each episode of K.C. Undercover will center on the Cooper family as they contend with everyday familial issues — while also performing missions to save the country. "This show has all of the Disney Channel attributes," says Adam Bonnett, the channel's executive vice president of original programming. "Family, friendship, humor and heart from the point of view of an incredibly talented and relatable teenage girl."

Dylan Minnette To Star Opposite Jack Black In Sony's "Goosebumps"

EXCLUSIVE: Dylan Minnette has been cast as the co-lead in Sony Pictures' Goosebumps, the adaptation of the iconic Scholastic YA scary book series written by R.L. Stine. Sony nabbed the rights to the books and tapped Black's Gulliver's Travels helmer Rob Letterman to direct last March. The pic is loosely based on the series and is scripted by Darren Lemke and gooseMike White.

Minnette will play Zach Cooper, who moves with his family move from NY to to the idyllic town of Greendale, MD, where his secretive new neighbor turns out to be author R.L. Stine (Black). When the many, many demons in Stine's mind are set free by Slappy, a demonic ventriloquist's dummy, it's up to Zach and Stine's niece Hannah (Odeya Rush) to put the evil genies back in the bottle. Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz are producing.

Minnette, repped by CESD and the appropriately named in this case Monster Talent, just wrapped a big role opposite Steve Carell in Disney's Alexander And The Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day and appeared in Jason Reitman's Labor Day and Prisoners. On the TV side, his credits include NBC's Awake and playing Jack Shepard's son on Lost.

Disney Channel is staying in business with Shake It Up star Zendaya.

'Shake It Up' Star Zendaya to Topline Disney Channel Spy Pilot (Exclusive)

"Super Awesome Katy" reunites the actress with "Shake It Up" executive producer Rob Lotterstein.

The kids cable network has greenlighted half-hour comedy pilot Super Awesome Katy, which the 17-year-old starlet will topline, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

Super Awesome Katy centers on 16-year-old Katy Cooper (Zendaya), an outspoken and confident technology wiz and skilled black belt, who discovers that both her parents are spies with aspirations that she will follow in their footsteps.

The project marks a reunion between Zendaya and Shake It Up executive producer Rob Lotterstein, who will also be an EP on Super Awesome Katy.

Production on the pilot begins in early 2014.

Should the project be ordered to series, it would extend Zendaya's relationship with Disney Channel following the end of Shake It Up, which airs its series finale Nov. 10, and would join the network's 2014-15 schedule. She next stars in the already-wrapped original TV movie Zapped!, based on the novel Boys Are Dogs, scheduled for a 2014 premiere.

Zendaya, who competed on cycle 16 of Dancing With the Stars and is signed to Hollywood Records, is repped by Monster Talent, Inc. and Bill Sky of Skerzyniarz and Mallean.

Disney Channel recently began production on the anticipated Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World and twin series I Didn't Do It, both set to launch next year.

Youth Impact Report - July 2013

Jessie Greene, Manager

As a manager, Greene uses her own youth (she just turned 30) to her advantage. "I have a really good pulse on what's hip and cool," she says. At Monster Talent, she brings fresh energy while Bob Noll ("my mentor and boss") represents experience. By keeping her client list small, Greene is able to give her clients personal attention -- one reason "Shake It Up" star Zendaya works exclusively with Greene, and has no agent. Greene went to every taping of "Dancing With the Stars" last season, where Zendaya finished second. "I love my job. I can sit around eating Snickers with a bunch of 9-year-olds!" she says.
