The multi-cam family comedy, which will be produced by Rob Lotterstein, begins production this summer and will premiere early 2015. Zendaya will also serve as co-producer.

Zendaya was also the star of a previous Disney show, “Shake it Up,” another Lotterstein production that ran from 2010 to 2013 and cemented her as a stand-out star. She also made an appearance on “Dancing With the Stars,” in 2013, where she placed second to country star Killie Pickler.
