Lester Lewis (The Office) is set to write and executive-produce the series with Paul Hoen (Camp Rock 2) directing.
Disney had a huge hit in the musical genre with 2006's High School Musical, which led to High School Musical 2 for the network and High School Musical: Senior Year on the big screen.
A fourth film is in the works, as well as next year's spinoff, Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure, starring Ashley Tisdale.
