Show Summary: “Mighty Med” is a live-action comedy series that chronicles the fun and unpredictable adventures of two teenage best friends Kaz and Oliver, who while hanging out at The Domain, their favorite comic book and video game store, they experience an unexpected mishap that lands them in the hospital. There, they inadvertently discover a hidden door that leads to Mighty Med, a secret hospital that treats all their favorite superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy characters.

Lacking powers of their own and known as “Normos,” the seemingly ordinary boys’ extensive knowledge of superheroes prove to be surprisingly valuable to Mighty Med’s Chief of Staff Horace, who gives the duo after-school jobs working at the hospital. Sworn to keep Mighty Med and the “Mighty” world a secret, Kaz and Oliver must navigate their way through the two colliding worlds while juggling their daily responsibilities in order to help save the people that save people.

Best friends since kindergarten, Kaz and Oliver must combine their individual strengths and find creative ways to help heal their favorite superheroes, along with the power and insight of the new friends, and sometimes foes, they meet at Mighty Med, including teen superhero Skylar Storm and the Chief of Staff’s meddling nephew Alan, who has telekinesis powers.

While Kaz specializes in technology, gear, tactics and ultimately his impulses, the overly cautious and superstitious Oliver draws on his far-reaching knowledge of the heroes and their backgrounds. Strong and independent, Skylar Storm exhibits the bravery necessary to face villains and the everyday challenges she encounters despite the fact that she has lost all her powers. Although Alan meddles in hospital affairs, his courage to stand up for what he believes no matter what anyone else may think of him is to be admired.

The series stars two popular Disney Channel stars Bradley Steven Perry (“Good Luck Charlie”) as Kaz and Jake Short (“A.N.T. Farm”) as Oliver, newcomer Paris Berelc as Skylar Storm and Devan Leos (“Madea’s Witness Protection”) as Alan. Recurring are Carlos Lacamara (“Zeke and Luther”) as Horace and identical twins Jason and Randy Sklar (“ESPN’s Cheap Seats: Without Ron Parker”) as co-owners of The Domain, Clyde and Wallace respectively.

“Mighty Med” was created by Emmy Award-nominee Jim Bernstein (Disney’s “Phineas and Ferb”) and Andy Schwartz (“Scrubs”). Emmy Award-nominee Stephen Engel (Disney Channel’s “A.N.T. Farm,” “The Big Bang Theory”) and Bernstein serve as executive producers and Schwartz serves as supervising producer. The series is a production of It’s A Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
