–Disney XD is hoping to have another hit when their new show, “Zeke and Luther” premieres June 15th. The show stars Hutch Dano, Adam Hicks, Daniel Curtis Lee and Ryan Newman. Exclusive full episode previews will be available free of charge on iTunes beginning Monday, June 1 and via Disney Channel on Demand for Verizon subscribers beginning Monday, June 8.
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.
The premiere episode, entitled “Bros Go Pro,” airing at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT, Zeke and Luther get their first professional skateboarding job when Ginger arranges for them to perform a jump at a mattress store’s grand opening celebration. But, seduced by the perks of fame, Zeke and Luther nearly miss their debut.
Then it’s followed at 9pm EST by the episode of “Suite Life On Deck” called “Mulch Ado About Nothing,” in which Hutch Dano guest-stars as Bailey’s hometown boyfriend.
