Disney XD will premiere the live-action comedy series LAB RATS tonight from 8:30 - 9:30 pm/et. In the series, 14-year-old Leo is sent plummeting into a secret underground lab in the basement of the home he shares with his inventor stepdad, Donald Davenport, his mom, Tasha, and Eddy, the "smart house" computer, where he discovers three teen super-humans -- Adam, Bree and Chase. The bionic trio is anxious to leave the confines of the lab and experience life in the real world. Fortunately for them, Leo agrees to take them to school, and an unlikely friendship develops as Adam, Bree and Chase get their first taste of freedom while they inadvertently help Leo elevate his social status at school.
When Davenport finds out that his lab rats have retreated to Leo's school, he isn't too happy, as he fears they could cause damage by mis-using the powers they haven't yet mastered. Adam, the oldest lab rat, has super strength and heat and laser vision; Bree has super speed, can jump high, repel off walls and can defuse any situation quickly; and Chase, the youngest but the smartest, has unlimited intelligence capacity and the ability to create a force field.
Although Davenport seeks to push the boundaries of technology, he falls into a fatherly role realizing that he must first be a role-model and mentor to Leo, Adam, Bree and Chase. Tasha (Leo's mom) also quickly comes to think of the lab rats as her own kids, and Leo sees them as the siblings he's never had.
With Leo's help and advice, Adam, Bree and Chase try and navigate a 'normal' world of high school, friends and family while trying to keep their powers a secret. However, occasional bionic glitches occur, causing comical chaos along the way.
Starring are Billy Unger ("You Again") as Chase, Spencer Boldman ("I'm in the Band") as Adam, Kelli Berglund ("Hip Hop Harry") as Bree, with Tyrel Jackson Williams ("Failure to Launch," "Pair of Kings") as Leo and Hal Sparks (E!'s "Talk Soup") as Davenport. Recurring are Angel Parker ("Hannah Montana") as Tasha and Will Forte ("Saturday Night Live") as the voice of Eddy.
The series was created by Chris Peterson and Bryan Moore ("That '70s Show") who, with Mark Brazill ("That '70s Show," "3rd Rock from the Sun"), will serve as executive producers. LAB RATS is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc.
