PRODUCTION BEGINS ON SECOND SEASON OF DISNEY XD'S ROYAL HIT, "PAIR OF KINGS," STARRING MITCHEL MUSSO AND DOC SHAW

DisneyXD.com Launches New Game "Super Surf Scramble"

Production has begun in Hollywood on a second season of Disney XD's royal hit, "Pair of Kings," starring Mitchel Musso and Doc Shaw. The sophomore season will roll out later this year. The live action comedy adventure series was Disney XD's No. 1 series of 2010 with Kids 6-14, Kids 6-11, Boys 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.

Season Two follows fraternal twins and royal heirs Boomer and Brady on their quest to successfully reign over their quirky island nation. More confident in their role as kings, the brothers frequently find themselves in over their heads, and realize they still have a lot to learn about Kinkow's unique island mythology and bizarre inhabitants in order to become kings of legend. ?

The series premiered in September and was Disney XD's No. 1 series in 2010 across all key kid and boy demos - including Kids 6-14 and Boys 6-14 - and ranked No. 2 in Total Viewers (684,000) behind "Phineas and Ferb," at least doubling the year-earlier time period in core demos*.

On DisneyXD.com, "Pair of Kings" also spawned a popular game, "Wild Island Rampage," with over 1.5 million total game plays, and will roll out four additional themed games for the series throughout the year beginning with "Super Surf Scramble," available now on DisneyXD.com/Kings. In the game, players help Boomer and Brady 'hang 10' and take home the Royal Cup by guiding the kings around rocks, logs and mermaids while performing and landing aerial stunts.

Fans can cast their vote for Disney XD's "Compete for the Crown Marathon" on President's Day, Monday, February 21 (8:00 a.m. � 2:00 p.m.), by donating their high scores from "Super Surf Scramble" to Boomer or Brady. The king with the highest number of points will be crowned 'King for the Day' during the daylong programming event.

"Pair of Kings" follows Brady and Boomer, who lead a typical teenage life while being raised by their aunt and uncle in Chicago, but unbeknownst to them, they're successors to the throne of the island of Kinkow. When Mason, the Royal Advisor, informs the boys of their extraordinary lineage, Brady and Boomer relocate to the island to claim their throne as joint Kings. They rely on their new island friends for guidance in ruling an island filled with odd superstitions and customs. Their efforts are helped and hindered by Mason, the intimidating royal guard; Mikayla, Mason's adorable daughter and assistant to the kings; and Lanny, their disgruntled cousin and wannabe king, who's out to sabotage them and steal the throne.

The series stars two lead actors who are fan favorites from sibling network Disney Channel, Mitchel Musso (Oliver on "Hannah Montana," Jeremy on "Phineas and Ferb") as Brady and Doc Shaw (Marcus on "The Suite Life on Deck," "Tyler Perry's House of Payne") as Boomer. Rounding out the cast is Kelsey Chow (Disney Channel's "Den Brother," "One Tree Hill") as Mikayla, Ryan Ochoa (Disney's "A Christmas Carol") as Lanny and Geno Segers (touring production of Disney's "The Lion King") as Mason. Vincent Pastore ("The Sopranos") voices the recurring role of Lanny's fish Yamakoshi.

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