(Toronto, Canada) YTV is set to premiere The Stanley Dynamic, a new hilarious live action, multi-cam sitcom about a typical family with a big twist—one of their twin sons is animated. The 26 x 30-minute series, co-created by Ken Cuperus, produced by Amaze Film + Television, with animation produced by 9 Story Media Group, will debut on YTV on Thursday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT.
At the core of the Stanley family are 14-year-old twins Larry, played by Charles Vandervaart (Murdoch Mysteries, Camp Rock 2), and his cartoon twin brother Luke, voiced by Taylor Abrahamse (Beyblade: Metal Fusion), who are navigating their first year of high school and trying to fit in. Luke prefers to stay under the radar, but his ability to stretch his body like a wad of gum keeps him in the spotlight, while Larry’s love of attention constantly backfires and results in him getting into a lot of trouble.
Luckily, the twins have the support of their cartoonist dad, Lane, played by Michael Barbuto (Banner 4th of July, Nip/Tuck), who chronicles the family’s adventures in his online comic strip, “The Stanley Dynamic”; their overworked mom, Lisa, played by Kate Hewlett (Remedy, Degrassi: The Next Generation); and their bug-obsessed, genius sister, Lori, played by newcomer Madison Ferguson.
