‘Zeke and Luther’ Buddy Comedy Series to Premiere on Disney XD June 15, iTunes June 1

“Zeke and Luther,” a quirky buddy comedy from Matt Dearborn and Tom Burkhard, the creative team behind the Emmy-nominated and BAFTA-winning Disney Channel series “Even Stevens,” will debut on television and online, MONDAY, JUNE 15 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD and DisneyXD.com. Set against a sport that is a mainstay with boys age 6-14, the series delivers sharp yet heartfelt humor as it follows the adventures of two teenage best friends on a quest to become world famous skateboarders. It also introduces a talented young cast – Hutch Dano, Adam Hicks, Daniel Curtis Lee and Ryan Newman.

In “Zeke and Luther,” two fearless sidewalk surfers and best friends gear up and put their right foot forward to master the awesome art form of skateboarding (which is also their principle method of transportation). Along the way, they navigate the literal and figurative luge of teen years with all of its tricks, grinds, obstacles and occasional slams. Quick to challenge the boys’ claim to being the best skateboarders in the neighborhood is friend and foe Kojo, also 15. Kojo’s got a big attitude and a big mouth, and takes great pleasure in taking Zeke and Luther down a peg whenever he can. Another thorn in their side is Ginger, Zeke’s 12-year-old sister who finds her brother’s skateboarding dreams childish, to say the least.
