Grammy winner “Weird Al” Yankovic, best-known for his pop parodies such as “Eat It,” will play the lead in the new animated series “Milo Murphy’s Law,” Disney XD announced.
The project, formerly known as “Mikey Murphy’s Law,” comes from creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh of “Phineas and Ferb.”
“Premiering this fall, ‘Milo Murphy’s Law’ introduces Milo, the fictional great-great-great-great grandson of the Murphy’s Law namesake. Yankovic will also sing the opening theme song and, throughout the series, will perform original songs as his character Milo Murphy,” Disney XD said in its announcement.
The cast also includes Sabrina Carpenter (Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World”) and MeKai Curtis (Disney XD’s “Kirby Buckets”) as Milo’s friends Melissa Chase and Zack Underwood. Povenmire and Marsh will also voice pistachio protectors Vinnie Dakota and Balthazar Cavendish.
