Disney XD has ordered a new live-action comedy series dubbed Crash & Bernstein, with the pilot episode directed by Bruce Leddy (Mad TV) and It’s A Laugh Productions.
The show focuses on 14 year old Wyatt Bernstein, the only boy in a family with three sisters. He’s always wished for a brother, and Wyatt gets his wish when his puppet Crash (played by Tim Lagasse) comes to life.
Says Adam Bonnet, senior vice president, original programming for Disney Channel:
Full of unpredictable wit, Crash & Bernstein is another testament to Disney XD’s commitment to providing unique original programming for boys and their quest for discovery, adventure and humor. The series offers a fresh take on the typical buddy comedy and brings together an everyday kid and his ‘know no limits’ puppet as they navigate life’s adventures.
Production will begin in May, and the series premiere will debut fall 2012.
