Dan Scheider tells how he got Kel to do the project. 

"A couple of years ago I was writing an episode of ‘Sam & Cat.’ There was a guest star role for an eccentric rap artist and business mogul, named Peezy B. When I was telling Ariana Grande (who starred in ‘Sam & Cat’) about the episode and the role of the rap mogul, I mentioned the idea of Kel Mitchel playing the part.  Ariana got crazy excited. I didn’t realize she was such a huge Kel Mitchell fan…Kel played the role and he was brilliantly funny. Then, a year or so later, when I was creating my new show, ‘Game Shakers,’ there was a similar role for a regular character named Double G. I asked Kel if he’d be into the idea of doing a weekly television series, playing this crazy, fun, big character. And now, it’s happening."
