Things are looking up (and down) for Adam Irigoyen…
The 16-year-old half-Cuban American actor and Disney Channel star has been cast as the lead in the network’s newest pilot Growing Up and Down, which has been given the green light.
Irogoyen, best known for his role as Deuce Martinez in the network’s series Shake It Up, will star opposite Austin & Ally star Raini Rodriguez in the family comedy.
Irogoyen and Rodriguez will portray adult parents who suddenly and inexplicably are transformed into teenagers again.
Cecilia Balagot and Noah Centineo will co-star as their teenage kids, who now must navigate high school with their parents — a couple with the daunting task of re-living their adolescence under the critical eyes of their children.
Production on Growing Up and Down is slated to begin in August.
