DHX Media has signed a deal that will see its animated action series Dr. Dimensionpants (26 x 30) premiere in the U.S. through streaming service Hulu. The exclusive debut is set for June 13, when Hulu subscribers will be able to stream Dr. Dimensionpants in the commercial-free Kids section on their compatible devices.
Originally commissioned by Teletoon in Canada, the show follows the adventures of Kyle Lipton and his alter-ego, Dr. Dimensionpants — a cosmic superhero with powers of space, time and a moustache. Kyle was just an everyday kid until an interdimensional portal opened in his backyard, dropping a strange pair of glowing pants in his lap. Now with the help of his talking unicorn mentor, Philip, Dr. Dimensionpants must master his powers to save the universe on a semi-regular basis, and deal with the perils of being a day-to-day kid as Kyle.
Dr. Dimensionpants is created and executive produced by Brad Peyton, director of San Andreas, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Alex Agaltis (Rocket Monkeys, Jimmy Two-Shoes) and Jeremy Winkels (Almost Naked Animals, Total Drama: Revenge of the Island) serve as executive story editors; the show is directed by Jon Izen (Yam Roll, Pet Squad).
