A new show will be hitting the Disney Channel this Fall 2010 called “Shake It Up!” The show was originally set to be titled “Dance, Dance, Chicago,” but according to reports the name has changed. The show will begin filming in July in Hollywood, California.

The show was created by Chris Thompson (“Laverne and Shirley,” “Bosom Buddies,” “The Naked Truth,” “Action”) and executive-produced by Thompson and Rob Lotterstein (“The War at Home,” “Ellen”).

Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer of Disney Channels Worldwide said about the show:

“Newcomers Bella Thorne and Zendaya make for one of the most likable and engaging BFF duos we’ve ever seen. And while buddy comedies have been around since the start of television, what makes ‘Shake It Up’ unique is that this is the first time anyone has incorporated dancing into the underlying premise of a sitcom.”

The show will be about two characters, CeCe Jones and Raquel “Rocky” Blue, who dream of becoming professional dancers. They become background dancers on the most popular teen dance show “Shake It Up, Chicago,” and have to learn a bunch of new dance moves, while at the same time taking part in a number of new adventures!
