Disney XD has ordered a live-action and animation series called “Kirby Buckets.” The series will star Jacob Bertrand, from “Marvin Marvin” and “Bubble Guppies,” and it is set to go into production this spring and premiere on the network in the fall.
Here’s a note from Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for the Disney Channel:
We know that our Disney XD audience has a strong affinity for animated programming, so we are looking forward to presenting a live-action series told through the eyes of a boy that shares that same passion. By pairing a unique visual style with captivating storytelling, we have created a series filled with fun, unexpected adventures and laugh-out-loud comedy.
Here’s a description of the show:
The series invites viewers into the wildly colorful imagination of 13-year-old Kirby Buckets, who dreams of becoming a famous animator like his idol Mac MacCallister. Kirby sees his drawings take shape as he and his best friends, Fish and Eli, go on outrageous and unpredictable adventures.
