It is clear that Disney has a strong and well-enforced monopoly on television programming and feature films when it comes to kids, but not all Disney programming is created equally. There is no denying the fact that K.C. Undercover has literally been ingrained in the psyche of a host of children across the United States and beyond. And, besides the impression that the show’s key star, Zendaya, makes on the fans of the series, there are other key players that help to bring the show to life, including Kamil McFadden.
