Guest Star --
Skateboarding buddies Zeke and Luther take on Hollywood as they finally catch the lucky break they have been waiting for in an exhilarating two-part episode of Disney XD's hit comedy series "Zeke and Luther," premiering MONDAY, APRIL 2 (8:30-9:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
In "There's No Business Like Bro Business," Zeke and Luther submit a video of themselves to a TV show contest and then set off for Hollywood to hopefully win the show's grand prize, which will help them train for Nationals. While sightseeing on their skateboards, they befriend actor Vin Jackman and his girlfriend, Courtney Mills. When Zeke is offered an acting job and Luther's rap music talents are discovered by record producer Three J, it may be time for them to abandon their quest to become world-famous skateboarders. Guest starring are professional skateboarder Tony Hawk as himself and Debby Ryan (Disney Channel's "Jessie") as Courtney Mills.
The "Zeke and Luther" episodes will be available on Comcast platforms via VOD and XfinityTV.com; Disney XD Mobile VOD available via AT&T, MetroPCS, MobiTV, Sprint and Verizon; along with iTunes, Xbox Live and Sony Playstation on Tuesday, April 3.
