If you didn't get enough of Jon Heder in Napoloeon Dynamite, don't worry, he's going to be starring and executive producing a new comedy pilot for Disney XD!
Gulliver Quinn, which is set in present day, follows Gulliver Quinn, a grown man enrolled in the seventh grade after his family returns from a 15-year research expedition -- and living in a cave in remote northwest India. There, mom and dad pursued their long held goal, creating a documentary film on a rare tortoise, and Gulliver grew up acquiring awesome skills such as lightning-quick reflexes and the ability to see in the dark.
At school, Gulliver makes a few friends -- and a few enemies -- and joins a street hockey team. But his troubles have only just begun because the principal is no fan, and his childhood crush is now the school nurse (and due to budget cuts, head of the history department).
This sounds really funny! Production will begin this summer.
Stay tuned to Fanlala for all the updates.
