The series stars Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar and Mary Steenburgen.

Featuring inventive musical performances set to hit records from a variety of genres and time periods, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography for Scripted Programming in its freshman season.
