Zendaya Coleman Co-Producing Disney Channel’s “Super Awesome Katy”
How cool! Zendaya Coleman, who starred in the hit Disney Channel Original Series “Shake It Up,” has a brand new Disney Channel pilot series she is working on. The show is called “Super Awesome Katy,” and Zendaya will both star and co-produce!
Zendaya told OK! Magazine about the show:
Dancing continues to be a part of my life. I just did a Disney pilot that I co-produced, and we had an Argentine tango in the pilot. Val [Chmerkovskiy] was with me, so I got to get back into my ballroom dancing skills, which was exciting. I still dance all the time, I still do videos. I’m always dancing no matter what…[Super Awesome Katy is] basically about a teenage spy. She’s a smart girl, socially awkward. She doesn’t really sing or dance—her special talent is really just being smart and doing her homework. Her parents are accountants, but she finds out they’re spies, and they recruit her to help them on a mission. It’s basically about how she has to balance that with her regular life, and the troubles she encounters in those two worlds, which I think is really relatable. Maybe kids out there aren’t spies, but there are a lot of young people out there who are gymnasts, or on a sports team, and they never have time to juggle everything.
Fingers crossed that Zendaya’s show gets picked up by the Disney Channel!
