Jacob Bertrand had a starring role in two pilots from the channel, and this one was picked up!
“Kirby Buckets” is a single-camera animation/live-action hybrid from Horizon Productions about a child who dreams of being the biggest animator in the world. The 13-year-old actor stars as the title character, who sees his drawings take shape as he and his best friends, Fish (Mekai Curtis) and Eli (Cade Sutton), go on outrageous adventures. Olivia Stuck and Tiffany Espensen co-star in the project, directed by Walt Becker (“Wild Hogs”).
Adam Bonnett, EVP, Original Programming, Disney Channel said:
We know that our Disney XD audience has a strong affinity for animated programming, so we are looking forward to presenting a live-action series told through the eyes of a boy that shares that same passion.
Production will begin on the series in the spring for a fall 2014 premiere.
P.S. Love this tweeted photo from Jacob of him and Jake Short (“Mighty Med”)!
