Disney Channel is getting in to the pro wrestling game, kind of. Mexican wrestling legend Blue Demon, Jr is getting his own show.
Deadline reports that Disney Channel has ordered a pilot for a show called “Ultra Violet & Blue Demon.” This show will star Blue Demon, Jr.
The report didn’t note that any pro wrestling will be on the show, instead former NWA Champion will play a Superhero. He will co-star with a yet-to-be cast actress who will play his 13 year old niece, Violet.
Blue Demon, Jr’s niece is chosen by a magical mask to be the successor to him as a Superhero.
We’ll have to see if this show gets picked up by Disney Channel for a full season run. They are currently casting the show in Los Angels and Mexico. The pilot will shoot in the new couple of months.
