TORONTO, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Family Channel starts the weekend off right with a Night of Premieres on Friday, September 17. Kicking off the evening with a one-hour episode of the Disney XD Original Series Pair of Kings at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT, the night is topped-off with the premiere of new Family Channel Original Series, the espionage thriller, Connor Undercover at 9:35 p.m. ET/PT. Also part of the Night of Premieres, viewers can enjoy new episodes of JONAS L.A., Good Luck Charlie and Wingin' It and go behind the scenes with Mitchie and the rest of the rockers during the premiere of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam Dance Jam.

The night of premieres begins with a special hour-long series premiere of the Disney XD Original Series Pair of Kings at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT. In the premiere "Return of the Kings," Chicago-based, fraternal twins, Brady and Boomer, are visited by an Island warrior who tells them that they are the joint kings of the very remote mystical Island of Kinkow. The boys try to settle into their new lives as kings in paradise but during their coronation ceremony, the boys accidently destroy a sacred ruby causing the Island's volcano, Mt.Spew, to erupt. Pair of Kings stars Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana) and Doc Shaw (The Suite Life on Deck).

When a president's beautiful teen daughter is sent to live with Connor Heath's family, fifteen-year-old Connor is inducted into a world of helicopters, double agents and triple crosses in Connor Undercover. In the series premiere "Arrival", airing at 9:35 p.m. ET/PT, Connor's fantasy of living the spy life appears to come true when his family provides a secret haven for the mysterious Gisela - but she's not happy with the arrangement.

A new episode of JONAS L.A. airs at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT. In the episode "Direct to Video," Joe, Nick and Kevin's dad comes for a visit. While in town, Dad encourages the boys to do a new video and introduces them to McP, a cocky teen video director. McP comes up with a video that is totally wrong for the guys' image, so Kevin takes over and directs the video instead. Meanwhile, Frankie develops a crush on Macy and tries to woo her.

At 7 p.m. ET/PT in a new episode of Good Luck Charlie titled "Charlie Goes Viral," PJ makes a funny video of Charlie that becomes an overnight internet sensation and leads to an on-camera interview with a local news crew. However, when Amy takes the opportunity to relive her college news casting days and Bob uses the opportunity to advertise his business, the segment spins out of control.

Finally, in a new episode Wingin' It at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT, Carl is tired of going unnoticed around school and gets Porter to magically make him the centre of attention. He soon discovers that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be.

The Jonas brothers are back at 8 p.m. ET/PT as they star in the Dance Jam edition of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam follows Mitchie, Jason, Shane, Nate and their friends as they return to Camp Rock. Hoping for another summer of music and fun, the friends soon learn that a new state-of-the-art music and performance camp, Camp Star, has opened across the lake and is putting the future of Camp Rock in jeopardy. The Dance Jam edition of the movie, hosted by Demi Lovato and Jonas Brothers, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the spectacular dance scenes.
