Disney XD has ordered a third season of the hit comedy series “Zeke and Luther.” New episodes of the buddy comedy about two best friends determined to achieve epic skateboarding status will begin production fall 2010 in and around southern California. Starring are teen actors Hutch Dano, Adam Hicks, Ryan Newman and Daniel Curtis Lee.
Returning are creators and executive producers Matt Dearborn and Tom Burkhard, the team behind the Emmy Award-nominated and BAFTA-winning Disney Channel series, “Even Stevens.”
Set in the mythical Northern California beach community of Pacific Terrace, the series follows the comedic adventures of best friends Zeke and Luther and their quest to become the world’s best skateboarders, while also navigating the ups and downs of teenage life. Quick to challenge the boys’ claim to being the best sidewalk surfers in the neighborhood is their friend and foe with a larger-than-life attitude, Kojo. Another thorn in their side is Zeke’s business-savvy little sister, Ginger, who finds her brother’s skateboarding dreams childish.
“Zeke and Luther” premiered in June 2009 on Disney XD in the U.S., and can be seen on Disney Channels worldwide. The show is the #1 live-action original series on Disney XD this year across all key kid and boy demos.
