Disney Channel princess and ex-Shake It Up starlet, Zendaya Coleman is slated to star in a new half-hour comedy pilot ‘Super Awesome Katy‘ says THR.

Super Awesome Katy centers on 16-year-old Katy Cooper (Zendaya), an outspoken and confident technology wiz and skilled black belt, who discovers that both her parents are spies who expect her to follow in their footsteps. The project marks a reunion between Zendaya and Shake It Up executive producer Rob Lotterstein, who will also be an EP on Super Awesome Katy.

      agree but its there decision to be there. i know the media is all over them when they are in disney. remember miley at first and then selena gomez? if she’s intelligent and her parents don’t get starstruck she will do fine. but if she start dating a pop singer or take pictures of her naked back with her dad (miley)or film her self smoking pot she’s going to become the next lindsay.

    Huh…. So it’s about a teenager who realizes her parents are spies and she has to follow in their foot steps.
    Kinda sounds like that old disney movie. I think it’s called Sky High.

    It’s about a teenager who realizes his parents are super heros and has to follow in their foot steps.

    They need to hire GOOD writers for Disney again. Even my eight year old niece won’t watch Disney channel anymore…..

      there was the movie spy kids as well, which was the same story line.

    Huh. I always figured Bella Thorne would’ve been Disney’s next “It” girl, and actually I think she was definitely slated to be. She was clearly intended to be the star of the show in Shake It Up, with Zendaya in a slightly more sidekick-y role. But Zendaya has shown a lot more talent. Bella’s cute and all but even her acting is pretty terrible.
