So when her long-distance boyfriend hints at wanting to take their relationship to the next level at the upcoming STEM conference (“nerd prom”), she sets out to master her sexuality. In this hilarious teen comedy, Avery begins to study the mechanics of love and realizes that relationships require less science and more heart. Written by Tate Hanyok, the plot follows Avery Hansen-White, who doesn’t do things she isn’t excellent at. The new additions are joining previously announced leads Mika Abdalla and Jake Short in the YA rom-com, which is being directed by Talia Osteen.

‘Jessie’ Cast Pays Tribute To Cameron Boyce

"He was younger than me but taught me how to spread love and kindness more than anyone that has ever been in my life," she wrote. “He lifted everyone around him, and inspired/pushed me to be a better person than I ever would’ve been without his guidance, patience, and love."
Even as his star ascended with JESSIE, and he began to receive the type of fame that can change people, I never saw that change. His TV father Charles Esten wrote a tear-jerking thread on Twitter saying, "Cameron never carried himself with anything but kindness, humility, effortless grace, and great humor. Not even a little."
Boyce played Luke Ross on the Disney Channel sitcom as well as its spinoff BUNK’D. His Jessie co-star and TV sister Peyton List, was one of the many who sent out her emotional tribute via a lengthy Instagram post that was captioned, "heartbroken".
As the outpour of sentiment and condolences continue to flow for Cameron Boyce, 20, who died Sunday from an ongoing medical condition, the tribute paid by his Jessie castmates has been unbelievably heartfelt and touching.
