Based on Kline’s childhood experiences, Primos follows an eccentric 10-year-old girl who has a star quality of which she is unaware. But when her 12 cousins move in for the summer, they help her discover just what it is.

Disney Television Animation is producing Primos, whose half-hour episodes are divided into two stories.

Meredith Roberts, senior VP and general manager of television animation at Disney Branded Television, said: “It’s been especially gratifying to see Natasha directing more than 30 episodes of our number-one series, Big City Greens, while also creating her own new show that bears her authentic comedic voice and her family’s culture and values.”

Kline said: “Primos is set in childhood summers spent with my cousins under one roof, and the comedy that’s borne from that wonderfully hectic setting. As a kid, I didn’t see myself or my culture represented on-screen, so I’m excited to share my family dynamic through these new Disney characters and stories.”
