New Zendaya Disney Sitcom Launches in January; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 15, 2014)

K.C. Undercover

Multi-talented actress and recording artist Zendaya (ABC's Dancing with the Stars, Disney Channel's long-running hit Shake It Up) stars in and also co-produces K.C. Undercover, a live-action spy-comedy series for kids, tweens and families, premiering Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 8:30pm, ET/PT on Disney Channel. The premiere episode will be available on WATCH Disney Channel at midnight Thursday, January 1, 2015, allowing both verified and new WATCH Disney platform users to watch via their desktop, mobile and connected TV devices that day. The series was created by Corinne Marshall (Surviving Jack, Suburgatory) and is executive-produced by Rob Lotterstein (Shake It Up). Zendaya stars as K.C. Cooper, a high school math whiz and karate black-belt who learns that her parents are spies when they recruit her to join them in the secret government agency, The Organization. While she now has the latest spy gadgets at her disposal, K.C. has a lot to learn about being a spy, including keeping her new gig a secret from her best friend Marisa. Together, K.C. and her parents, Craig and Kira, and her younger siblings, Ernie and Judy (a humanoid robot), try to balance everyday family life while on undercover missions, near and far, to save the world.

Also starring are: Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and Tammy Townsend (The Client List) as K.C.'s tough but loveable parents, Craig and Kira Cooper; Kamil McFadden as somewhat clumsy but effective computer genius, Ernie; Trinitee Stokes as Judy, the youngest of the Cooper family who is actually a sophisticated humanoid robot posing as a precocious 10-year-old girl; and Veronica Dunne as K.C.'s outgoing best friend, Marisa. In the premiere episode, K.C. takes on her first undercover assignment, which coincides with her school dance. The mission: apprehend an enemy teen spy and recover the code for a virus designed to render every mobile device useless. Upcoming guest stars include: Bella Thorne (Blended, Shake It Up), Trevor Jackson (Eureka, Let It Shine) and Ross Butler (Teen Beach Movie 2), as well as Telma Hopkins (Family Matters, Half & Half), Roz Ryan (The Rickey Smiley Show, Amen), Charles Robinson (Night Court, The Game), Diane Delano (Days of Our Lives) and comedian/actress Cocoa Brown (The Single Moms Club). 22 episodes have been ordered.
