Production is underway for 2-D animated comedy adventure series Kid Knievel, set to premiere on new boy-driven channel Disney XD in fall 2009.
It follows 12-year-old Robbie Knievel who wants to become the world’s greatest daredevil. Produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, the series is inspired by Kaptain Robbie Knievel, son of the famous Evel Knievel, and is the first animated show for the Disney XD platform, which targets boys ages six to 14. DisneyXD.com will air five 55-second original Kid Knievel shorts in advance of the show’s premiere, and will then air them on the channel.
Disney XD makes its debut in February 2009.
