Exclusive: Does Zendaya Think She’s Too Grown For Disney?!
Zendaya is giving Disney another go ’round! The 18 year old star says she returned to the kid-friendly network under one condition…
Z told HipHollywood, “I was like, if I’m going to come back to Disney Channel and keep doing this and I’m going to be a part of it, I wanted to make sure I had creative control,” and that she does! As the star of the new Disney show K.C. Undercover, Zendaya is not only the lead, but she’s a co-producer on the project too.
In the live-action comedy Zendaya plays K.C. Cooper, a teenage spy trying to balance her life as a high school student and a super sleuth. Oddly enough, Zendaya says her role as K.C, is similar to her real life. “In my regular life I’m a little awkward, I’m a little weird, I don’t really have everything together. I’m a typical kid, a normal teenager … I too am always constantly finding the balance.”
The cast also includes Tammy Townsend and Kadeem Hardison as K.C.’s spy parents, Kira and Craig who are a part of the government agency, The Organization. The Cooper family is rounded out with Kamil McFadden who plays K.C.’s genius yet clumsy, spy wanna-be brother, Ernie and Trinitee Stokes who plays the little sister Judy that’s actually a sophisticated android posing as a precocious 8-year-old girl.
Catch K.C. Undercover when it premieres on Sunday, January 18th at 8:30pm on the Disney Channel.
