Disney XD premieres MECH-X4, a new live-action sci-fi adventure comedy series centred on a heroic team of four teenage boys who take on the responsibility of controlling a giant robot to protect their city from danger. The series premieres on Monday 24 April at 17:15 on Disney XD (304).
The series stars newcomer Nathaniel James Potvin as Ryan Walker, a freshman at Bay City High who has “technopathy” - the extraordinary ability to control technology with his mind.
His talent mysteriously awakens MECH-X4, a giant 36m robot built by an elusive genius-in-hiding to defend their town against impending doom. Ryan recruits his two best friends and his older brother to help him operate MECH-X4.
Starring alongside Potvin are Kamran Lucas as Ryan's genius friend Harris and Pearce Joza (Lab Rats) as his quirky friend Spyder. Raymond Cham (Teen Beach 2) stars as Ryan's older brother, Mark.
Check out the interview with them below:
The series was created by executive producer Steve Marmel (Sonny with a Chance). Anupam Nigam (Defiance) also serves as executive producer alongside co-executive producer and director Zach Lipovsky (Dead Rising: Watchtower).
Executive producer of the show Anupam Nigam says there’s lots of epic action in MECH-X4. “Each episode is like a 30-minute action adventure movie. It’s very cinematic and the special effects are incredible. I don't think there's a half-hour family show out there that does visual effects at the level we're doing.”
