Synopsis

  • "Milo Murphy's Law" is an animated comedy adventure series that follows 13-year-old Milo Murphy, the fictional great-great-great-great grandson of the Murphy's Law namesake. Milo is the personification of Murphy's Law, where anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

    Created and executive produced by Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh of Disney's "Phineas and Ferb," the series stars Al Yankovic (professionally known as "Weird Al") in the title role of Milo Murphy, with Sabrina Carpenter (Disney Channel's "Girl Meets World") and MeKai Curtis (Disney XD's "Kirby Buckets") starring as Milo's best friends Melissa Chase and Zack Underwood, respectively. Yankovic, a four-time Grammy Award-winner, also performs the series' theme song, as well as other songs throughout the series.

    Suffering from Extreme Hereditary Murphy's Law condition (EHML), a trait that has affected the men in the Murphy family for generations, Milo is always expecting the unexpected. No matter what goes wrong - and it constantly does - Milo is prepared for every possibility, armed with knowledge, a backpack of supplies, and an endless sense of optimism and enthusiasm that can turn any catastrophe into an adventure. His positive outlook opens up never-ending opportunities for new and exciting life experiences. And while most people in town like Milo, they know it's best to keep at least a 10-foot distance to avoid his cyclone of calamity. In each 22-minute episode, Milo, along with his best friends Zack and Melissa, find ways to think outside of the box while enjoying life's obstacles.
