DISNEY XD GREENLIGHTS "MIGHTY MED," A LIVE-ACTION COMEDY SERIES INSPIRED BY THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD OF SUPER HEROES AND COMIC BOOKS

-- Stars Bradley Steven Perry (Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie") and Jake Short (Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm") --

Disney XD has ordered "Mighty Med," a live-action comedy series inspired by the extraordinary world of super heroes and comic books -- starring Bradley Steven Perry (Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie") as Kaz and Jake Short (Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm") as Oliver. The multi-camera series will begin production in Los Angeles, California in July for a fall 2013 premiere on Disney XD. The announcement was made by Adam Bonnett, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channel.

In making the announcement, Bonnett said, "Bradley Steven Perry and Jake Short are two incredibly popular Disney stars whose comedic timing and relatable on-screen friendship make them the perfect pair for 'Mighty Med.' Our Disney XD audience will go on a journey with these characters, two comic book fanboys whose love and knowledge of sci-fi, fantasy and super heroes land them the coolest after school job ever -- working at Mighty Med, a hospital for super heroes."

The series follows best friends Kaz and Oliver who, while hanging out at their favorite comic book store, inadvertently discover a secret wing of a hospital that caters to super heroes and comic book characters.

Also starring are newcomer Paris Berelc as Skylar Storm and Devan Leos ("Madea's Witness Protection") as Alan.

The pilot was created and written by Emmy Award-nominee Jim Bernstein (Disney's "Phineas and Ferb") and Andy Schwartz ("Scrubs"), and directed by Eric Dean Seaton ("Kickin' It"). Stephen Engel (Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm," "The Big Bang Theory") and Bernstein served as executive producers and Schwartz served as supervising producer. "Mighty Med" is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc.
