Cameron Boyce will play Conor, a 15-year-old "video game phenom" who goes back to high school "after a thumb injury sidelines him from the glamorous pro gaming circuit". Conor will use his video game skills to beat real-life, high school level challenges, according to a release from Disney.

Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for Disney Channels Worldwide said: "With the popularity of video games and electronic sports, we're thrilled to give our audience a new series that spotlights one of their biggest passions and features fan-favorite star Cameron Boyce. We are bringing the video game universe to life and giving our popular multi-camera series a fresh, new twist by integrating gaming visual effects into each episode".
