Disney Channel Star Zendaya Signs on for Comedy Pilot for the Network

Disney Channel’s hit show Shake It Up might have ended its run last weekend, but fans will still be able to see the show’s star Zendaya on the network.

The network has greenlighted a new half-hour comedy pilot starring the singing-and-dancing teen called Super Awesome Katy.

On the new show, 16-year-old Katy Cooper (played by Zendaya) is an outspoken technology whiz kid and black belt who discovers her parents are spies. And of course, mom and dad want Katy to follow in their top secret footsteps.

The pilot should begin production early next year and will team Zendaya with Shake It Up executive producer Rob Lotterstein who is serving as an executive producer on Super Awesome Katy.

Zendaya is also starring in Disney Channel’s original TV movie Zapped which is based on the novel Boys Are Dogs. The movies will also air in 2014.
