Look who we caught inside the recording studio for Disney XD’s upcoming new series, Penn Zero: Part Time Hero? It’s Pitch Perfect‘s Adam DeVine!
The 31-year-old actor voices Boone in the animated show, an under qualified part-time wise man who tags along with best friends Penn Zero and Sashi, an overqualified part-time sidekick, as they zap to other dimensions to fill in for heroes in need.
Each mission takes the team to unpredictable epic worlds where they must battle evil part-time villain Rippen and his part-time minion Larry. Whether superhero, fish-prince, clown cop, giant monster or tiny action-figure, Penn uses his unconventional heroic skills to save the day – his own way.
Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero premieres Friday, February 13th, @9:45PM ET/PT on Disney XD and Disney Channel (that’s right after Bad Hair Day) with three additional episodes premiering over the holiday weekend on Disney XD. Sweet!
