From a media release:
Corus Entertainment’s YTV is pleased to confirm it has renewed its hit show The Stanley Dynamic, from Amaze Film + Television with animation by 9 Story Media Group. The hybrid live action/animated series focuses on the fun-loving Stanleys, a close-knit family with one big twist: their son Luke is an animated cartoon character. Production on the second season of 26×30 minute episodes begins this summer. The first season of The Stanley Dynamic ranks in the top 5 shows for kids 6 to 11 on YTV.
The first season of The Stanley Dynamic focuses on teenaged twin brothers Larry and Luke entering high school. In the second season, the world of the Stanley family will include even crazier antics from the twins, their sister Lori’s ever expanding insect menagerie, and misadventures with their parents, Lane and Lori. Just when viewers thought they had the Stanleys all figured out, some new additions to the household — including pets and extended family members — will totally shift the Stanley dynamic. Season 2 of the series is set to premiere in Fall 2016.
The Stanley Dynamic brings family viewers together to laugh along with the Stanleys. Cartoon Luke and his flesh-and-blood twin brother, Larry, are navigating high school and trying to fit in. Luke prefers to stay under the radar, but his ability to stretch his body like a wad of gum keeps him in the spotlight, while Larry’s love of attention is constantly getting him into trouble. Luckily, the twins have the support of their cartoonist dad, who chronicles the family’s adventures in his comic strip, their overworked mom, and their bug-obsessed, genius sister. Despite the fact that Luke is a cartoon, in the eyes of the Stanleys and the world around them, Luke is just a regular kid, living in a three-dimensional world.
The Stanley Dynamic was created by Ken Cuperus, Jocelyn Hamilton, and Jamie Piekarz. Ken Cuperus (Total Drama Action, Mr. Young) is executive producer/showrunner with Michael Souther (Call Me Fitz, Saint Ralph) and Teza Lawrence (Call Me Fitz, Saint Ralph) also serving as executive producers. Alice Prodanou (My Babysitter’s a Vampire, The Fresh Beat Band) is co-executive producer and Victoria Hirst (Mr. Young, Away From Her) is the Producer.
