'Good Boys' alum Brady Noon will play the son of the 'Gilmore Girls' favorite in the 10-episode show.
The Mighty Ducks.The series is set in present-day Minnesota, where the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan (Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Graham), set out to build their own ragtag team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of competitive youth sports.
The series is produced by ABC Signature Studios, withThe Mighty Duckscreator Steve Brill returning as co-creator and exec producer of the new series. Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (13 Going on 30, The King of Queens) are set as co-creators and showrunners. James Griffiths and Michael Spiller will exec produce, with the former set to direct. Graham, who currently stars on NBC's critical darling
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist,will be credited as a co-exec producer. George Heller and Brad Petrigala of Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Jordan Kerner will also exec produce the series.AsTHRreported, ABC Signature Studios head Tracy Underwood, always looking to identify Disney titles and intellectual property that can appeal to a global audience, put
Mighty Ducks in development after being approached by original trilogy screenwriter Brill and original producer Kerner.The Mighty Ducks was released in 1992 by Walt Disney Pictures. Produced on a budget of $10 million, the Stephen Herek-directed movie starred Emilio Estevez as Gordon Bombay, a Minneapolis attorney who winds up coaching a peewee hockey team as community service after a drunk-driving arrest. Despite negative reviews from critics, the film went on to become a box office hit, grossing $50.7 million domestically. That led to two sequels — 1994's
D2: The Mighty Ducks (with Estevez) and 1996's D3: The Mighty Ducks, which was built around original film star Josh Jackson's Charlie Conway. They grossed $45.6 million and $22.9 million, respectively, with the success of the first feature inspiring producers Disney to name Anaheim's 1993 NHL expansion team after the franchise.
This is the second time The Mighty Ducks has been explored for the small screen. An animated series was launched in 1996 on ABC and as part of its syndicated programming block The Disney Afternoon. The 26-episode series last aired on Toon Disney in 2004.
