From a media release:
HIT SITCOM ‘MR. YOUNG’ GETS READY FOR SEASON 3
Mr. Young, the hit live-action series on YTV, is getting ready for its Season 3 premiere on Tuesday, November 6 at 7 p.m. ET/PT and audiences can’t get enough. The show, which was the first multi-camera TV series to film in front of a live audience in Canada, has been gaining fans and ratings across the globe – a true Canadian success story.
The series, created by Dan Signer (The Suite Life on Deck, A.N.T. Farm), revolves around child prodigy Adam Young (Brendan Meyer) who, having completed college at age 14, goes back to high school as a science teacher (instead of working for NASA). There, he reunites with his childhood best friend Derby (Gig Morton), and manages to develop a crush on a student in his class named Echo (Matreya Fedor).
In the third season opener, Adam’s robotic creation, A.R.T.H.U.R returns to Finnegan with his new robot family. Faced with babysitting his ‘grandkids,’ Adam enlists Echo’s help in the hopes that he can impress her with his parenting skills. Unfortunately for both of them, dealing with kids isn’t as easy as it looks.
This debut episode lays the groundwork for what promises to be the biggest season yet. Some of the series’ most loved characters, like Gordon Myren as A.R.T.H.U.R. return, alongside new and exciting guest stars, including Peter DeLuise and Brian Stepanek. Stepping outside the walls of Finnegan High, fans will also learn a great deal more about Adam, Echo, Derby and the rest of the group as they try their hand at magic, travel to the North Pole and test the boundaries of the space time continuum.
Produced by Vancouver-based Thunderbird Films, Mr. Young has paved the way for other sitcom style shows in Canada, including the company’s Package Deal, about three overly close brothers and the woman who comes between them, which started shooting on Oct 21 and will air in spring 2013.
The show’s broad humour has resonated with audiences not only in Canada, where it airs on YTV, and the US, where it airs on Disney XD in the primetime slot, but also internationally, making audiences in Spain, UK, France, Italy, and many other countries, roar with laughter. The show is distributed internationally by Nelvana Enterprises.
Mr. Young returns for its third season on YTV in Canada on November 6th, on the heels of the premiere of Thunderbird Films newest show, The Funny Pit, which hits YTV on November 4th at 9:30pm ET/PT.
