The special will acknowledge the absence of the character Carlos, played by the late Cameron Boyce, in the storyline and Boyce’s memory also will be honored in the telecast. Boyce tragically passed away in July 2019 due to ongoing medical conditions.
Spin follows an Indian American teen who discovers her artistic side through the unique world of DJ culture and learns she has a passion for creating mixes that blend the textures of her Indian heritage and the world around her. The series stars Avantika (Diary of a Future President), Disney’s first original TV film featuring an Indian American lead.
Directed by Manjari Makijany, the groundbreaking film breaks barriers with an international ensemble that includes Bollywood star Abhay Deol as Rhea’s father, Arvind, U.K. comedian/actor Meera Syal as Rhea’s grandmother, Asha, and Aryan Simhadri as Rhea’s younger brother, Rohan.
