Disney has announced a new TV show called The Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything, which will follow a proffesional 15-year-old eSports player.
Disney channel actor Cameron Boyce will take on the role of Conor, who is forced to attend high school for the first time after a thumb injury takes him out of his professional gaming career. "As a coping mechanism, he begins to visualize life as a video game," Disney said in a press release. "He is reunited with his three former gamer friends who he left behind for life on the pro circuit World Tour, and he quickly realizes that restoring his friendships is vital in his quest to 'level up' to his former glory."
"With the popularity of video games and electronic sports, we're thrilled to give our audience a new series that spotlights one of their biggest passions and features fan-favorite star Cameron Boyce," Executive Vice President of Original Programming at Disney Channels Worldwide Adam Bonnett said. "We are bringing the video game universe to life and giving our popular multi-camera series a fresh, new twist by integrating gaming visual effects into each episode."
The show will premiere this summer on Disney XD, a basic cable channel.
