Disney XD Orders 'Gaming Show (In My Parents' Garage)
Disney XD has ordered 10-episodes of Gaming Show (In My Parents’ Garage) after testing the series by debuting the pilot episode in April.
The show, which was created through a partnership with Banger Films’ new children’s division B-Minors, focuses on video games and gaming culture. The show follows host Jesse Sukunda and his friends Julia and Ian as they create a web series from Sukunda’s parents’ garage.
“We’re always trying to find new ways to connect with our audience and the Gaming Show is an inventive way for us to continue that pursuit. After talking to our target audience of boys 6-11, we found Disney XD viewers are passionate about gaming and we knew it was critical to develop a weekly cross-platform series that spoke to kids’ desire to learn more about gaming culture,” said Michael Goldsmith, director, original programming, Disney XD, in a statement.
Production on the series begins this summer in Toronto, with an expected debut on the network in late fall. The series is executive produced by Scott McFayden and was created by Jesse Shamata.
