Shake It Up
The buddy comedy series "Shake It Up" follows high spirited best friends CeCe Jones and Rocky Blue who land their dream job as background dancers on the most popular teen dance show, "Shake It Up, Chicago!" Now, between learning the latest dance styles, navigating the backstage antics of their "frenemies," balancing responsibilities at home and their newfound social status at school, the girls encounter plenty of comedic bumps in the road. "Shake It Up" was created by Chris Thompson ("Laverne & Shirley," "Bosom Buddies," "The Naked Truth," "Action") and is executive-produced by Rob Lotterstein ("The War at Home," "Ellen") and Eileen Conn ("Mad About You," "Just Shoot Me!").
Contrasting in personality, CeCe and Rocky are lifelong friends and would do anything for each other. CeCe's impulsive and adventurous nature and Rocky's measured approach and efforts to keep them on the right track make their friendship that much stronger, as they complement each other like two dancers in a pas de deux. Through their drive and determination they propel each other to keep striving for more.
When they're not dancing, CeCe is usually taking care of her ingenious younger brother, Flynn, while their mother works as a police officer, and Rocky is usually studying or finding charity work like raising money for a senior citizens center. The duo also embark on fun adventures with their longtime and well connected friend, Deuce; hang out with Rocky's hip, sarcastic older brother, Ty; and occasionally tangle with rival "Shake It Up, Chicago!" background dancer Tinka.
"Shake It Up" stars Bella Thorne as CeCe Jones, Zendaya as Raquel 'Rocky' Blue, Adam Irigoyen ("Wizards of Waverly Place") as Deuce Martinez, Davis Cleveland ("Good Luck Charlie," "Desperate Housewives") as Flynn Jones and Roshon Fegan ("Dancing with the Stars," "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam") as Ty Blue.
