DISNEY XD GREENLIGHTS NEW LIVE-ACTION SCI-FI ADVENTURE COMEDY SERIES "MECH-X4"

Disney XD has ordered "MECH-X4," formerly "MTX!," a new live-action sci-fi adventure comedy series centered on a heroic team of four teenage boys who take on the responsibility of controlling a giant robot in order to protect their city from danger. Production is currently underway in Vancouver for a scheduled fall 2016 premiere on Disney XD. The announcement was made today by Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide.

"This serialized live-action adventure saga is a new genre for Disney XD, and we've assembled a dream team in a cast and crew that commands this action-packed series, masterfully blending high-end visual effects with compelling mythology to bring 'MECH-X4' to life," said Bonnett.

The series stars newcomer Nathaniel James Potvin as Ryan Walker, a freshman at Bay City High who has technopathy - the extraordinary ability to control technology with his mind. His talent mysteriously awakens MECH-X4, a giant 120-foot robot built by an elusive genius-in-hiding to defend their town against impending doom. Ryan recruits his two best friends and his older brother to help him operate MECH-X4. When monsters suddenly begin to descend upon their city, the four must quickly learn to work as a team in order to pilot the robot that is their only hope of saving their town, and ultimately the world, from mass destruction.

Also starring alongside Potvin are Kamran Lucas as Ryan's genius friend Harris and Pearce Joza ("Lab Rats") as his quirky friend Spyder. Raymond Cham ("Teen Beach 2") stars as Ryan's older brother Mark.

The series was created by executive producer Steve Marmel ("Sonny with a Chance"). Anupam Nigam ("Defiance") also serves as executive producer alongside co-executive producer and director Zach Lipovsky ("Dead Rising: Watchtower"). "MECH-X4" is a production of Bay City Productions, Ltd., a subsidiary of Omnifilm Entertainment, Ltd.
