Disney Channel Sets Two Series In 'The Villains Of Valley View' And 'Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion'

Just in time for National Superhero Day this week, the Disney Branded Television has announced the premiere date for two of its new Disney Channel series, The Villains of Valley View and Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion, both of which are launching on June 3.

According to the official description: When teenage supervillain Havoc stands up to the head of the League of Villains, her family is forced to change their identities and relocate to a sleepy Texas suburb. With the help of her effervescent new neighbor Hartley, Havoc — going incognito as Amy — must somehow hide her superpowers and quell her villainous nature in favor of something she and the rest of her family have fought against all their lives: being normal.

The series is created by Chris Peterson and Bryan Moore. Peterson and Moore also serve as executive producers and showrunners. The cast includes Isabella Pappas, Lucy Davis, James Patrick Stuart, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Kayden Muller-Janssen.

Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion “follows Mexican American teen Violet Rodriguez who is chosen by a magical luchador mask that transforms her into the superhero Ultra Violet [who fights] crime alongside her luchador uncle, Cruz, also known as Black Scorpion. Although Cruz takes Violet under his wing to teach her the responsibilities of her special powers, she doesn’t always see eye to eye with him when it comes to his methods for capturing crooks. In the meantime, she must keep her superhero identity secret from her parents and her older brother Santiago, as well as her friends and schoolmates. However, she does lean on one close confidante: her best friend Maya Miller-Martinez, who provides advice and assists with documenting Ultra Violet’s adventures on social media.”

Scarlett Estevez leads the all-Latinx cast. J.R. Villarreal, Marianna Burellim, Juan Alfonso, Juan Carlos Rodriguez, Brandon Rossel, Santiago “Tiago” Rodriguez, Zelia Ankrum and Bryan Blanco also star.

Developed and executive produced by Eric S. Garcia and Leo Chu, who also serve as showrunners, the series is executive produced by Joe Nussbaum, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit.
