SERIES LAUNCHES AS PART OF DISNEY XD'S MASSIVE MARCH BREAK PROGRAMMING LINEUP
TORONTO, March 4, 2015 /CNW/ - There's a new hero in town and he's zapping onto Disney XD this March to star in the hilarious adventure series Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero. Premiering Monday, March 16 at 6 p.m. ET, the animated comedy stars BC-native Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley) as the titular character and follows Penn and his friends as they zap to other dimensions to fill in for heroes in need. The side-splitting show headlines Disney XD's Massive March Break lineup, a can't-miss programming event running from Monday, March 16 – Sunday, March 22.
Penn Zero just inherited the coolest part-time job ever – he's a superhero and leader of a ragtag team of good guys with interdimensional zapping powers. Every day after school, Penn and his best friends Sashi (Tania Gunadi, Enlisted) and Boone (Adam Devine, Pitch Perfect), battle the evil part-time villain Rippen (Alfred Molina, Spider-Man 2) and his minion, Larry (Larry Wilmore, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore), in an attempt to save another world. Whether he's transformed into a superhero, fish-prince, clown cop, giant monster or tiny action-figure, Penn uses his unconventional heroic skills to save the day in his own way. Throughout March Break, new episodes of the laugh-out-loud comedy will air every weeknight at 6 p.m. ET, immediately following a massive marathon from one of the network's top series.
Disney XD's Massive March Break lineup officially kicks off on Monday, March 16 with back-to-back episodes from fan-favourite series airing each week day beginning at 3 p.m. ET. The marathon madness showcases only the most awesome episodes from Lab Rats, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, Mighty Med and Kirby Buckets and features a brand new episode daily at 5:30 p.m. ET.
