EXCLUSIVE: Disney XD has picked up a new multi-camera comedy series, tentatively titled Wasabi Warriors (form. Kicking It) with a 13-episode order. Created by sitcom veteran Jim O’Doherty (Grounded for Life), the show is set at the Bobby Wasabi Martial Arts Academy, a strip mall martial arts studio and worst dojo in the underperforming nationwide Bobby Wasabi chain. It revolves around a ragtag crew of lovable misfits who welcome a hotshot skateboarder named Jack who will teach them about life, karate, and how to just plain kick it.

Executive producing with O’Doherty is Marc Warren (JONAS L.A.) The pilot was directed by Eric Dean Seaton (Sonny with a Chance).
