DISNEY XD ORDERS A NEW LIVE-ACTION COMEDY SERIES "PAIR OF KINGS"

-- Mitchel Musso ("Hannah Montana," "Phineas and Ferb") and Doc Shaw ("The Suite Life on Deck," "Tyler Perry's House of Payne") to Star --

Disney XD orders "Pair of Kings" a live-action comedy series for kids and families about two fraternal twins who are living a typical teenage life in Chicago, but unbeknownst to them, are the successors to the throne of The Island of Kinkou. The multi-camera series will begin production in Hollywood in March 2010 and begin airing in Fall 2010 around the world.

Starring are popular actor and Walt Disney Records recording artist Mitchel Musso ("Hannah Montana," "Phineas and Ferb") as Brady and Doc Shaw ("The Suite Life on Deck" and "Tyler Perry's House of Payne") as Boomer.

The series follows 16-year-old fraternal twins, Brady and Boomer, who lead a typical teenage life while being raised by their aunt and uncle in Chicago. But when Mason, the Royal Secretary to the Throne of the Island of Kinkou, arrives at their High School to inform the stunned boys of their extraordinary lineage, their lives are about to change drastically. Now, Brady and Boomer must relocate to the island to claim their throne as joint Kings of an island filled with odd superstitions and customs �while trying not to cause havoc at every turn. Their efforts are often helped and hindered by Mason's adorable daughter, Mikayla, and a disgruntled cousin and wannabe king, Lanny, who's out to sabotage them and steal the throne.

Rounding out the cast is Geno Segers (touring production of Disney's "The Lion King") as Mason, Kelsey Chow ("One Tree Hill") as Mikayla and Ryan Ochoa (Disney's "A Christmas Carol") as Lanny.

The series was created and executive-produced by Dan Cross and Dave Hoge from Disney XD's "Aaron Stone" and the UPN's "One on One." Matt Wickline ("Frank TV," "The Hughleys") will also serve as executive producer, Leo Clarke ("Frank TV," "The Steve Harvey Show") as producer and Don Beck ("Reba," "8 Simple Rules") as consulting producer. "Pair of Kings" is produced by It's A Laugh Productions, Inc.
