Exclusive: Disney Xd's breakout new live-action comedy series Pair of Kings has received a second-season pickup. Writers for the multi-camera comedy adventure series will reconvene after Thanksgiving to work on scripts, with production on the second season slated to begin in Hollywood in February. The series stars Mitchel Musso and Doc Shaw as fraternal twins who must relocate from their Chicago home to the island of Kinkow after they learn they are the rightful heirs to the throne of this odd kingdom. Since its September premiere, Pair of Kings has become Disney Xd's No.1 series across all key kid and boy demos, including Kids 6-14 and Boys 6-14. It ranks second in total viewers (684,000) behind veteran animated series Phineas and Ferb. Pair of Kings was created by Dan Cross and Dave Hoge who are executive producing with Matt Wickline. »

HollywoodNews.com: After more than eight months of hard shooting, Doc Shaw’s and Mitchel Musso’s new Disney Xd show, “Pair of Kings” wrapped production of its first 21 episodes earlier this month. Shaw admits, “It feels like we’ve really been away on an island. Not a relaxation island – an island where I had to work hard.”
In the series, he and Musso play fraternal twin high-schoolers who head to a magical uncharted island after being told they’re rightful heirs to the throne there. Disney Xd-style complications and fun ensue. “We did a lot of our own stunts. We did fighting. We got into harnesses for scenes like when we had to jump out of a bird’s nest and hang glide down to the ground. We had to jump over, like, a nine foot wall into an imaginary ocean,” Shaw says, »

Imagine a world where you could have a twin of another race, date a mermaid, and be a king as a teenager. That's what life is like on Disney's latest action-adventure series Pair of Kings. Starring Doc Shaw (The Suite Life on Deck) and Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana), Kings will premiere on Disney, then moves over to Disney Xd, the company's more male-oriented station. But co-star Kelsey Chow (One Tree Hill) says girls have a reason to tune in as well. "We've got a lot of cute boys and (my character) Mikayla is a good role model for girls," she told TVGuide.com on a recent visit to the set. Shaw also tells us what's so special about the island of Kinkow and why being a king isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Dear Tyler Perry Fans,
I understand you find the characters Mr. Perry has created in his films and television programs relatable, that’s fine, and to that quality of Mr. Perry’s work, I do agree. He has indeed written a world full of familiar archetypes that fit squarely into the culture at which they’re aimed. Unfortunately, that quality alone cannot excuse the major failings of his creative work. He stacks his films with incapable actors. He employs subpar writers to craft the comical turns of his features. He directs any comedy present in the poor writing into the ground, depriving the situations of any comedy through poor editing and ill-timed delivery. House of Payne is no exception. Perry’s insistence on using some of the worst talent in the primary roles makes the show worthy of disdain, no matter how relatable.
