The series was first announced as a pilot in pre-production titled Super Awesome Katy in November 2013. The series was set to star Shake It Up star, Zendaya, who would play 16 year old Katy Cooper, an outspoken and confident technology wiz and skilled black belt, who discovers that both her parents are spies who expect her to follow in their footsteps. Production on the pilot was set to begin in early 2014. On November 6, 2013, Zendaya tweeted about the pilot saying she wants to bring back the "cool Disney Channel," mentioning shows like That's So Raven, The Proud Family, and Kim Possible.
- The show's working title was Super Awesome Katy, but was changed because Zendaya felt that she did not look like a Katy and she wanted a more mature title that would reach an older demographic.
