‘Do you think that devil worship is real in Hollywood, like the whole black magic and all that stuff?’ the star’s character asks in the new trailer.

‘Oh, I definitely think there’s good and evil spirits, and black magic is real,’ Perrey Reeves’ character responds, as we see the all-too-real turmoils that up and coming artists in the entertainment industry face, including alcohol abuse, constant setbacks and false relationships in a bid to climb their way to the top.

The series also stars Booboo Stewart, Olivia Culpo, Drea De Matteo, Mark Boone, Fairuza Balk, Perrey Reeves, Rys Coiro, Ryan Hurst, and Brooke Lyons, as well as Bella and Cameron.

While there's no official release date for the eight-part series just yet, Paradise City's Instagram account has already confirmed that a portion of the money made from the project will be donated to The Cameron Boyce Foundation dedicated to the actor, working to support causes of peace, ending gun violence, and supporting clean water for all.

The account wrote in tribute as the trailer dropped: "He gave us an incredible performance as a young musician, band leader and aspiring DIY executive in the music business. Cameron was a truly one of a kind spectacular talent."

The 20-year-old actor passed away suddenly in July 2019, and has since left a huge hole in the hearts of fans and co-stars alike, and the cast of one of his previous Disney shows, Jessie, recently reunited to pay tribute. The final film he starred in, Runt, also won an award at the Mammoth Film Festival in March, and the Descendants franchise frequently pay tribute through his costars.

Paradise City was filmed just months before his death, and will be the final project released that he worked on.

This is going to be seriously special.
