Leap, Plunge and Dive with New Animated Comedy Series The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers Premiering Sunday, May 7 at 12:30 p.m. ET/PT Sneak Preview of New Series Available Online at YTV.com
(Toronto, Canada) YTV gets ready to laugh itself silly with the animated stunt-driven action series The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers. Premiering Sunday, May 7 at 12:30 p.m., this YTV Original Production follows the adventures and misadventures of three daredevil brothers, Xan, Adi and Enk, as they risk life and limb for their worldwide travelling stunt show. YTV fans can get a sneak peek of The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers before the premiere by checking out streaming clips at www.ytv.com/adrenalini. From the little-known country of Rendoosia, the Adrenalini Brothers tour the globe in their wacky stunt-mobile, striving to perform the craziest stunts the world has ever seen. Taking their act to exotic destinations – Transylvania, the Amazon, Japan and even the Arctic – the Adrenalinis live for danger as they jeopardize their lives for the mere satisfaction of hearing a crowd cheer. Unfortunately for the brothers, their stunt spectaculars are continually defective as their overzealous behaviour always exceeds their skill and ability. Stunt-crazed, this threesome carries on and ends every unpredictable stunt with the Rendoosian cry “Yahzaa!”
“The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers is a high-flying comedy series which uses slapstick humour to entertain its audience,” said Phil Piazza, Vice President, Programming, Corus Children’s Television. “The hijinks of these colourful characters along with their unique vocabulary only add to the series humour and ingenuity. We are certain that this trio of Rendoosian circus performers will be fast favourites amongst our dedicated YTV viewers.”
In the premiere episode, Cape of Majesty!, the Adrenalini’s are performing in London, England when Xan loses his precious red cape. In panic mode he takes off from his brothers in a frantic search of Buckingham Palace. During the search, Enk narrowly escapes being eaten, Adi plays dress up and Sir Xan has a sword fight with the Queen of England. Premiering in its regular timeslot Sunday, May 7 at 12:30 p.m., this 26-episode series also airs every Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 a.m. and features three seven-minute adventures in each episode. Created by UK-based Pesky Animation, The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers is a Pesky and Studio B Productions co-production produced for YTV.
