Disney starlet Zendaya Coleman, who is set to star in the original TV movie Zapped next month, will headline and co-produce a new spy comedy for Disney Channel entitled K.C. Undercover.
The multi-camera series, which is executive-produced by Shake it Up‘s Rob Lotterstein, will start production this summer in LA before premiering in early 2015.
The series follows the titular K.C. Cooper, a high school math whiz who’s training to be an undercover super spy. Each episode finds the Cooper family balancing typical family issues while performing undercover missions to protect the country.
The series also stars Kadeem Hardison (Static Shock, A Different World) and Tammy Townsend (The Client List) as K.C.’s parents Craig and Kira Cooper.
Coleman first rose to Disney stardom on Shake It Up. As a recording artist, her debut album Zendaya, on Hollywood Records, yielded the platinum hit single Replay.
