Disney XD orders two, renews two

Kids-logo-460_2Disney has ordered two new shows, Billy Dilley’s Super-Duper Subterranean Summer, and Country Club.

Both will be produced in-house by Disney Television Animation, and will roll out in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

Billy Dilley’s Super-Duper Subterranean Summer follows eccentric science-obsessed seventh-grader Billy Dilley and his lab partners Zeke and Marsha as they find themselves stuck in a bizarre, magical world beneath the earth’s surface.

It comes from Aaron Springer (SpongeBob SquarePants) and voice talent includes Jessica McKenna (Comedy Bang! Bang!) as Billy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Zeke, and YouTube star Catie Wayne (Animalist) as Marsha.

Country Club is a comedy adventure about Cricket Green, a country boy who moves to the big city with his family, from comic book creators, brothers Chris and Shane Houghton (Harvey Beaks).

Disney XD also renewed two series: Star vs. The Forces of Evil and Two More Eggs.

“Animation is strongly resonating with the Disney XD audience, and we are dedicated to expanding our roster of world-class creators including Aaron, Chris and Shane.” said Marc Buhaj, senior VP, programming and general manager, Disney XD. “Our audience will be treated to engaging, original comedic storytelling through the unique visions of each of our creators.”
