Disney Channel original movie stars teen sensation Zendaya
Exclusive sneak peek of new series Girl Meets World follows the movie
TORONTO, May 21, 2014 /CNW/ - After tearing up the stage at last year's Big Ticket Summer Concert, multi-talented recording artist, dancer and actress, Zendaya (Shake It Up), is kicking off Family Channel's sensational summer programming lineup, starring in the hilarious new Disney Channel Original Movie, Zapped. Premiering Friday, June 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, day and date with Disney Channel in the U.S., the dance-filled flick features Zendaya as Zoey Stevens, a high school student who unwittingly comes into possession of a smartphone app that magically controls boys. Immediately following the film's debut, viewers will be treated to an exclusive sneak peek of the highly anticipated new series Girl Meets World, which premieres on Family Channel this August.
Filmed on Vancouver Island, Zapped follows Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer and straight-A student whose life is turned upside-down when her mother remarries and she finds herself as part of a family of rambunctious, chaotic and messy boys, and an unruly dog. After a freak accident with her smart phone, Zoey learns she has a magical app that can somehow control all the boys around her. Thrilled at the chance to restore order to her world, Zoey begins commanding the boys in her life to behave better, but soon learns that when you don't allow boys to be boys, you're asking for trouble. Starring alongside Zendaya is Spencer Boldman (Disney XD's Lab Rats) as Jackson, the one guy at her new school who stands apart from everyone else. Zapped will be available on Family OnDemand beginning July 11.
