Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Enterprises and Thunderbird Films have sold season two (26 episodes) of their live-action comedy series Mr. Young to Disney XD in the US.
The new season of the series, produced by Thunderbird Films in association with Corus’ YTV and created by Dan Singer (A.N.T. Farm), is set to premiere this summer.
Filmed in front of a live studio audience in Vancouver, Mr. Young follows the story of Adam Young (Brendan Meyer), a child prodigy who graduates university at age 14 and takes a job as a high school science teacher and is forced to teach his friends, enemies and the girl he has a crush on.
Mr. Young made its debut on Disney XD channels in the US and around the world (UK, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, New Zealand) in fall 2011.
It has become one of YTV’s top-rated series since its Canadian debut in March 2011, and Nelvana also sold the series in September 2011 to Cartoon Network Latin America.
