After months of building anticipation through interviews and photos, K.C. Undercover finally has a release date. The sitcom, starring and co-produced by megastar Zendaya, will premier January 18th on the Disney channel.
Bot soon enough? No problem. Catch the first episode on WATCH Disney Channel at midnight Thursday, January 1. The episode will be available for both verified and new subscribers.
The series (if you haven’t heard) is a live-action spy-action comedy that follows K.C. Cooper (Zendaya) who is a high school student, a math whiz, a black-belt… and a super-spy in training. Learning the family profession while trying to balance normal teenage life lands her in a new set of antics each week. Of all the things she needs to learn, keeping secrets from her BFF proves to be the most difficult.
This is a big opportunity for Zendaya, who has said she plans to stick with Disney, moving up the ranks as she grows. Her role as producer here proves to be the first step in a long and successful career. Zendaya explained that “it’s been pretty cool, just kind of having a voice.” Being able to collaborate with the writers has also been a plus, leading to a text from Zendaya to her Shake It Up co-star, Bella Thorne.
At Zendaya’s request, Bella will happily join the cast for one episode, reuniting the duo. “I’m really happy that she’s here,” Zendaya exclaimed after raving to Access Hollywood about how nice it is to work with Bella again. “Whenever we’re together, we’re like, a little kooky.”
K.C. Undercover offers fans a whole new Zendaya character. “I’m kicking some choreographed butt,” she added jokingly.
