Disney Channel has settled on a title for its Jessie spinoff. BUNK’D begins production later this month for premiere in summer 2015. The network also has rounded out the cast, adding newcomers Miranda May, Nina Lu and Kevin Quinn. They’ll join previously announced Jessie stars Peyton List, Karan Brar and Skai Jackson who are reprising their roles as Emma, Ravi and Zuri Ross, respectively.
BUNK’D centers around Emma, Ravi, and Zuri Ross leaving their glitzy New York penthouse and heading off to a rustic summer camp in Maine, where their parents happened to have met as teenagers. Along with their new friends, Emma, Ravi and Zuri try their best to adapt to their new “home away from home” and settle into their exciting new lives at Camp Kikiwaka.
Disney Channel gave a straight-to-series order to its planned spinoff of its hit live-action comedy series Jessie, which is ending its run after four seasons. Season to-date, Jessie ranks as the No. 2 cable TV series among kids 6-11 (1.2M/4.9) and among the top 5 live-action series in kids 2-11 (1.4M/3.4).
Jessie creator Pamela Eells O’Connell serves as creator and executive producer. The series is a production of It’s A Laugh Productions.
