New Disney girl Bella Thorne will costar with Zendaya in Disney Channel’s teen dance buddy comedy ‘Shake It Up!‘ for a fall premiere, according to Variety. Bella costars with Zendaya as best friends who become background dancers on a Chicago TV show. Creator Chris Thompson said: ‘I wanted..
..to do a female buddy comedy for a new generation. It’s my wheelhouse. I did ‘Laverne and Shirley,’ I did ‘Bosom Buddies.’ I know how to do a buddy comedy, and I wanted to go back there. I (wanted) to set it in the world of dance, because dance is in the zeitgeist.’ Kenton Duty, Adam Irigoyen and Davis Cleveland have also been cast.
