[via press release from Disney XD]



Disney XD's "Crash & Bernstein," a "bro-comedy" that follows Wyatt Bernstein, the only son among four kids, whose new puppet, Crash, comes to life and becomes his loud-mouthed surrogate brother who knows no limits, premieres MONDAY, OCTOBER 8 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT).

In the premiere episode, "Crash Lands," Wyatt Bernstein is reluctantly taken to a Build-A-Bestie store for his birthday and, while there, creates a boy-filled version of a Bestie, a puppet he names Crash, who comes to life as the brother he always wanted. Crash finds Wyatt living in a household full of sisters, including popular 16-year-old Amanda, fashion-forward middle sister Cleo and assertive 6-year-old Jasmine, so he comes up with a plan to help Wyatt get his own room. But, Crash's plan soon backfires, jeopardizing the relationship with his new brother.

Starring are newcomer Cole Jensen as Wyatt, Emmy Award-nominated puppet master and filmmaker Tim Lagasse ("Johnny and the Sprites," "Between the Lions") as Crash, Oana Gregory ("Lab Rats") as Amanda, Landry Bender ("The Sitter") as Cleo and Aaron R. Landon ("New Girl") as Pesto. Recurring are Mary Birdsong ("Reno 911") as Mel and Mckenna Grace as Jasmine.

"Crash & Bernstein" was created by Eric Friedman ("Austin & Ally," "I'm In The Band") and is executive-produced by Friedman and Emmy Award nominee Mike Larsen ("Real Time with Bill Maher," "Rodney"). Jim Armogida and Steve Armogida ("Grounded for Life") serve as consulting producers. The puppet was designed and built by Chiodo Brothers Productions, Inc, based in Burbank, California. The series is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc.

On Monday, September 17, DisneyXD.com/Crash invites fans to "Crash This Site," an activity allowing viewers to browse any website and watch Crash destroy the site piece-by-piece with each click of the mouse, simply by adding a bookmark to their browser toolbar. Beginning Monday, September 24, "Wyatt's Room Remodel" activity debuts at DisneyXD.com/Crash in which players can help Wyatt and Crash redecorate Wyatt's room. Launching on Monday, October 8 is a new virtual-reality arcade game, "Bro-tastic Games," where players can choose to compete as Wyatt or Crash for the high score in a series of wacky "bro-based" mini-games, including "Epic Destruction," "Tackle Crush," "Fairy Castle FAIL," "10-Doll Bowling" and "R/C Copter Flying."
