Disney Channel Greenlights New Live-Action Sci-Fi Adventure Comedy Series ‘Mech-X4’

Series Slated to Debut Next Fall

Disney XD has ordered “MECH-X4,” formerly “MTX!,” a new live-action sci-fi adventure comedy series centered on a heroic team of four teenage boys who take on the responsibility of controlling a giant robot in order to protect their city from danger. Production is currently underway in Vancouver for a scheduled fall 2016 premiere on Disney XD.

The logline: “Mech-X4” 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 120-foot 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. When monsters suddenly begin to descend upon their city, the four must quickly learn to work as a team in order to pilot the robot that is their only hope of saving their town, and ultimately the world, from mass destruction.
