Disney XD renews 'Stone,' adds 'Slap'


Disney XD has renewed its flagship show, the live-action adventure "Aaron Stone," for a second season and picked up the new comedy "Viper Slap."

"Slap" is about a teenage boy (Logan Miller) living his dream as the new lead guitarist of his favorite 1980s rock band, Viper Slap, while helping them on the comeback trail.

The project, from ICM-repped creators Michael Kaplan and Ron Rappaport, marks the first multicamera comedy series for the boy-centric Disney XD, which launched in February after the rebranding of Toon Disney.

Production on "Slap," executive produced by Kaplan and Richard Gurman, will start in July.

Production will begin in June on the second season of "Stone." (partialdiff)
