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.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
