Last month, Disney Channel announced a new short form YouTube series titled “Shook.” Now, the upcoming series has an energetic trailer to make us look forward to its premiere.
- Shook centers around Mia, a 15-year-old who yearns to dance professionally but is hindered by daily obligations to her little sister, Skylar, and their single mom, a registered nurse. Although Mia struggles to convey how she feels, with the support of her extroverted best friend, Fredgy, and a new mentor, Ritz, who introduces her to the vibrant world of street dance, Mia begins to express her true and best self through dance.
- Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass (Paddleton, Wild Wild Country, Room 104) are the executive producers of the series which was written by Jonathan Hurwitz (Andi Mack). Directed by Hannah Peterson (East of the River), the series is a production of DBP Donut.
- Shook stars popular actress, singer and dancer Sofia Wylie, star of Disney Channel’s Andi Mack and the upcoming High School Musical: The Musical: The Series for Disney+.
