DISNEY XD ORDERS NEW LIVE-ACTION COMEDY SERIES "LAB RATS"

Disney XD has ordered "Lab Rats," a live-action comedy about a teenager, Leo, who discovers three teen super-humans with bionic powers in the basement of his home, which he shares with his mom, Tasha, and inventor stepdad, Donald Davenport. The bionic trio soon convince Leo to take them along to high school so they too can experience normal life. The multi-camera series, a companion to Disney XD's hit series "Kickin' It," will begin production in Hollywood in September for a 2012 premiere on Disney XD.

Starring are Tyrel Jackson Williams ("Everybody Hates Chris") as Leo, Billy Unger ("You Again") as Chase, Spencer Boldman ("I'm in the Band") as Adam, Kelli Berglund ("Hip Hop Harry") as Bree and Hal Sparks (E!'s "Talk Soup") as Davenport.

After inadvertently accessing a high tech wall panel that sends him plummeting into a secret underground lab, Leo discovers three teen super-humans - Adam the strong one, Bree the fast one and Chase the smart one. The three, eager to leave their confines, convince Leo to take them along to school, where they try to be normal teens while managing their bionic strengths. Along the way, they help Leo build confidence in himself, and figure out a way to keep their bionic abilities and dangerous missions a secret from the world.

The series was created by Chris Peterson and Bryan Moore ("That '70s Show") who, with Mark Brazill ("That '70s Show," "3rd Rock from the Sun"), will serve as executive producers. "Lab Rats" is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc.
