Disney XD is targeting a fall 2016 premiere for MECH-X4 (formerly known as MTX!), with filming now underway in Vancouver. The sci-fi adventure series from executive producer Steve Marmel stars Nathaniel James Potvin, Kamran Lucas, Pearce Joza, and Raymond Cham. Anupam Nigam is on board as an executive producer with Dead Rising: Watchtower‘s Zach Lipovsky directing.
“This serialized live-action adventure saga is a new genre for Disney XD, and we’ve assembled a dream team in a cast and crew that commands this action-packed series, masterfully blending high-end visual effects with compelling mythology to bring MECH-X4 to life,” said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide.
The MECH-X4 Plot:
The series 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.
