World premiere Friday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on YTV
Based on the much-loved Macdonald Hall book series by best-selling young adult author Gordon Korman, Bruno & Boots: Go Jump in the Pool follows Bruno Walton, played by Jonny Gray (Max & Shred, Annedroids) and Melvin “Boots” O’Neal, played by Callan Potter (Stratford Festival), the most infamous troublemakers at Macdonald Hall – a supposedly prestigious school for boys. After a dismal defeat at the hands of their York Academy rivals at the semi-annual swim meet, Bruno uncovers that Macdonald Hall is perilously close to losing his best pal Boots to York thanks to Macdonald Hall’s less than impressive sports facilities. Determined to save their swim program and keep his friend at Macdonald Hall, Bruno goes on a fundraising warpath to build their own pool. The duo’s shenanigans try the patience of Headmaster William “The Fish” Sturgeon (Peter Keleghan) and Headmistress Eugenia Scrimmage (Caroline Rhea). Despite their ongoing pranks, Bruno and Boots love their school and are willing to do anything to protect it.
Bruno & Boots: Go Jump in the Pool! is produced by Anthony Leo and Andrew Rosen of Aircraft Pictures (Todd and the Book of Pure Evil, Cybergeddon), written by Adam Barken (Killjoys, Flashpoint) and directed by Vivieno Caldinelli (This Hour has 22 Minutes, Odd Squad).
