“FUTURE-WORM!” IS COMING TO DISNEY XD
— Andy Milonakis and James Adomian Lead the Voice Cast —
“Future-Worm!,” created by the Emmy Award-winning director Ryan Quincy (“South Park,”IFC’s “Out There”), is coming to Disney XD in short-form and a newly announced full-length series beginning in Fall 2015. Quincy, who joined the Disney Television Animation team in 2013, is the executive producer. The announcement was made today by Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Television Animation.
Coleman said, “When we first heard Ryan’s pitch, we knew we had something unique. It’s your classic ‘Boy and His Worm’ story, but this worm is from the future…and has a beard. We loved Ryan’s original animated shorts so much we greenlit a full series.”
“Future-Worm!” follows Danny, an optimistic 12-year-old who creates a time machine lunch box and befriends FutureWorm, a fearless worm from the future. Together, the duo navigates through space, time and study hall, embarking on adventures and spontaneously making up new ones along the way.
Providing the voice of Danny is Andy Milonakis (“Kroll Show”). Future Worm is voiced by James Adomian (“The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”).
“Future-Worm!” is a production of Disney Television Animation, which is part of the Disney | ABC Television Group at The Walt Disney Company. In the U.S., Disney XD is seen on a 24-hour, advertiser-supported network that reaches over 80-million households via its basic cable and satellite affiliates. In total, there are 31 Disney XD channels available in 25 languages around the world.
