Disney to Join eSports Fandom With ‘Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything’
Disney is looking to hop on the eSports train with a new show, 'Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything,' and it will star Cameron Boyce.
Currently, Cameron Boyce is the star of the Disney Channel show 'Jessie', but soon he will be switching tracks to star in its new series 'Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything.' While we don't know what that means for 'Jessie', we do know that Boyce will be playing 15-year-old Conor, a "video game phenom", according to Polygon. Conor's story will start with him going back to high school after a debilitating thumb injury ruins his career as a pro-gamer, because responsible parents let their children play enough to reach the top scene while just starting high school.
"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," said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide. "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."
You can check out Disney's complete description of the show below and keep an eye out for it on Disney XD sometime this summer.
Conor (Cameron Boyce), a 15-year-old video game phenom, is forced to attend high school for the first time after a thumb injury sidelines him from the glamorous pro gaming circuit. As a coping mechanism, he begins to visualize life as a video game. 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.
All we're going to say is that we've been cursed out enough by annoying 15-year-olds on Xbox Live to know this show doesn't belong on Disney.
