A new live-action sci-fi series entitled MECH-X4 (formerly MTX!) has been greenlit by Disney XD.
The serialized show is being produced in Vancouver at Bay City Productions and is scheduled for a fall 2016 debut on the boy-skewing channel in the US.
MECH-X4 follows a team of four teenage boys who take control a giant robot in order to protect their city from danger. It 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. 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), while Anupam Nigam (Defiance) is on-board as executive producer alongside co-executive producer and director Zach Lipovsky (Dead Rising: Watchtower).
