Disney XD to bow Crash & Bernstein in October
Blending live-action and puppetry, Disney XD’s new kids comedy series Crash & Bernstein will premiere on Monday, October 8 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.
The It’s A Laugh Productions-produced series, which is created by Eric Friedman (Austin & Ally, I’m In The Band), follows the everyday adventures of 14-year-old Wyatt Bernstein whose longing for a brother (he has three sisters) comes true when his puppet Crash comes to life.
The series stars newcomer Cole Jensen as Wyatt and acclaimed puppet master/filmmaker Tim Lagasse (Sesame Street, Between the Lions, and Blue’s Room) plays Crash.
In advance of the series premiere, DisneyXD.com/Crash is launching an online game on September 17 called Crash This Site that allows Crash to physically destroy any website piece by piece when users add a bookmark to their browser toolbar. On September 24, another online activity game, Wyatt’s Room Remodel, launches, and on the premiere date, a new virtual-reality arcade game, Bro-tastic Games, will hit the site.
