It’s A Laugh Productions is in pre-production on the new 1/2 hour sitcom “Mighty Med” for Disney XD, and the Disney casting director is auditioning actors for the show’s starring and co-starring roles, as well as possible recurring roles. Central Casting is handling the hiring of the show’s stand-ins and extras. Shooting will take place in Los Angeles, CA beginning in February 2013. The starring roles include two boys and one girl who can play 15 years of age. They are also accepting submissions from actors of any ethnicity.
“Mighty Med” centers on two lifelong best buddies Kaz and Oliver, as well as young superheroine Skyler Storm. Since the two boys are huge comic book fans and have great knowledge of superpowers, they get hired at a super-secret superhero hospital. While working there, they discover that Skylar Storm is not just a comic book character, but is a real person. Turns out Skylar is at the hospital because all of her twenty four super powers have been taken from her by a villain named “The Vulture”. Kaz and Oliver decide that they can help her get her powers back, even though all of the geniuses at the superhero hospital have been unable to do so.
Executive producing is Primetime Emmy Award nominee Jim Bernstein and Andrew Schwartz, both of who also co-wrote the teleplay. Bernstein served as writer on Disney Channel’s “Phineas and Ferb” on 20 episodes. He also has been a writer and/or producer on such shows as “Family Guy,” “Quintuplets,” and “American Dad!” among many others. Schwartz worked as a production assistant on Nickelodeon Network’s “All That” and “Drake & Josh” before becoming executive story editor on the ABC comedy drama “Scrubs”.
It’s a Laugh Productions, which is a an owned subsidiary of the Disney-ABC Television Group, is producing “Mighty Med”.
