Trevor Tordjman Set to Join the Cast of Popular Disney Channel Comedy ‘BUNK’D’





Trevor Tordjman Set to Join the Cast of Popular Disney Channel Comedy ‘BUNK’D’
Aug. 26, 2020

TREVOR TORDJMAN SET TO JOIN THE CAST OF POPULAR

DISNEY CHANNEL COMEDY ‘BUNK’D’

Multitalented actor Trevor Tordjman will join the cast of the hugely popular sitcom “BUNK’D” for its fifth season, set to begin production at a date yet to be determined. Since its 2015 premiere, the series has been a top performer on linear TV, SVOD and streaming platforms.

Leah Buono, executive director, Casting, Disney Channels, said, “Trevor is a beloved member of the Disney Channel family whose effortless charisma, go-to comedic skill and physical agility make him a favorite to kids around the world. We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Trevor and look forward to introducing another exciting new character to our audience and delivering more fun with our wonderful cast, crew and creative team on “BUNK’D.”

Tordjman, a Kitchener, Ontario native, has amused and enthralled young viewers as the acrobatic cheer squad leader and erstwhile tyrant Bucky in “ZOMBIES,” 2018’s #1 rated telecast among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. He did it again with “ZOMBIES 2,” the #1 cable movie of 2020 to-date. He’s also the co-host, with Ariel Martin (“ZOMBIES 2”), of “Disney Fam Jam,” a dance competition series on Disney Channel, and the pair are hosting Disney Channel interstitials to provide “espirit de corp” during the summer while observing safer at home guidelines. Tordjman, a member of a sketch comedy group, is an accomplished dancer. His credits also include “The Next Step,” “Lost & Found Music Studios” and “Full Out.”

In “BUNK’D,” Parker Preston (Tordjman) is a witty charmer with an inherent likeability, despite the cocky demeanor he’s picked up as a member of an ultra-wealthy family. It turns out he’s the only Preston who cares about a deed giving descendants of great-great-grandfather Preston a 15 percent stake in Camp Kikiwaka. Now, Parker shows up at Kikiwaka determined to implement over the top ideas to make the camp overwhelmingly successful, but it quickly becomes clear that he’ll butt heads with Lou over what success looks like.

“BUNK’D” stars Miranda May as Lou, Raphael Alejandro as Matteo, Will Buie Jr. as Finn, Mallory James Mahoney as Destiny, Shelby Simmons as Ava, and Israel Johnson as Noah.

Erin Dunlap (“Andi Mack,” “Jessie”) is executive producer of the live-action comedy series, which was created by Pamela Eells O’Connell (“Jessie,” “Family Matters,” “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody,” “The Suite Life on Deck”). “BUNK’D” is from It’s a Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline.

Avantika Vandanapu to Star and Manjari Makijany to Direct ‘Spin’





Avantika Vandanapu to Star and Manjari Makijany to Direct ‘Spin,’ a Newly Greenlit Disney Channel Original Movie
August 20, 2020

AVANTIKA VANDANAPU TO STAR AND MANJARI MAKIJANY TO DIRECT ‘SPIN,’ A NEWLY GREENLIT DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE

Avantika Vandanapu (“Diary of a Future President” on Disney+) will star in—with Manjari Makijany (“Desert Dolphin”) directing—the newly greenlit “Spin,” a Disney Channel Original Movie.”Spin” follows an Indian American teen who discovers her artistic side through the unique world of DJ culture and learns she has a passion for creating mixes that blend the textures of her Indian heritage and the world around her. Zanne Devine (“Secret Society of Second Born Royals,” “Easy A,” “I, Tonya”) is the executive producer of the movie, with writing by Carley Steiner (“Play Date”) and Josh Cagan (“The Duff”). “Spin” is set to begin production in Toronto this fall, for a 2021 premiere on Disney Channel.

Rhea Kumar (Vandanapu) is an effervescent 15-year-old who lives with her tight-knit multigenerational family. After her mother’s death, she has been her father’s emotional rock, and her life revolves around her family’s restaurant, her eclectic group of friends, and her after-school coding club. Everything changes when she falls for aspiring DJ Max and a long lost passion for music is reignited. Rhea discovers that she has a natural gift for creating beats and producing music, but must find the courage to follow her true inner talent.

Lauren Kisilevsky, vice president, Original Movies, Disney Channel, said, “We look forward to watching Avantika lead this vibrant story of a teen discovering unexpected aspirations to create, remix, perform and ultimately define her art. We’re equally thrilled to see this special story come to life in Manjari Makijany’s talented hands.”

A well-recognized name in India and among Indian diaspora in the United States, 15-year-old Vandanapu started her artistic journey through dancing, focusing on Indian classical dance forms, along with ballet, jazz and contemporary. She won second place in the first North American edition of ZeeTV’s reality series “Dance India Dance Li’l Masters.” Vandanapu went on to act in multiple feature films in Indian cinema and more than 25 commercials for national and regional print and TV media. Most recently, she starred as Monyca in “Diary of a Future President” on Disney+ and can be heard as the voice of Kamala in Disney Junior’s hit animated series “Mira, Royal Detective.”

Manjari Makijany is an Indian writer-director based in Los Angeles. She’s an alum of the prestigious American Film Institute’s Directing Workshop for Women (AFI DWW) and Hollywood diversity programs, such as Universal Directors Initiative and the Fox Filmmakers Lab. Her debut feature “Desert Dolphin,” a coming of age sports-drama and India’s first skateboarding feature, will be released globally on Netflix in 2021. Her vision for storytelling and diverse film experience, both in India and America, has served as a fertile ground to craft her unique voice as a filmmaker.

Creator and executive producer Craig Gerber said, “It has been a tremendous honor for me to bring Disney’s first Latina princess to the screen. Everyone involved with ‘Elena of Avalor,’ from the creative team to the unbelievable cast and crew, felt the responsibility to get this right. We created the character of Elena with the hope that she would be a role model, not just for young Latina girls watching, but for all children to be able to see what a true leader looks like. From the beginning, Elena’s story arc has been that she would one day become queen. With the series finale, the creative team has been able to bring Elena’s story to the thrilling conclusion that we always envisioned. I can’t wait for viewers to see the final chapter in Elena’s epic adventure.”
