Filmed in Vancouver, Mr. Young stars Brendan Meyer as Adam Young, a young prodigy who return to high school at 14 – as a teacher.

“We knew that Mr. Young would be a hit and we are thrilled that the series has taken off and found a following so quickly,” said Jocelyn Hamilton, vice president, Original Programming, Kids, Comedy, Drama. “The show is fun and wacky, but most of all, it’s relatable to our audience; its fan base is constantly growing and is comprised of both kids and their parents. Mr. Young is a great addition to our successful line-up of comedy programming.”

The series airs Tuesdays at 6:30 pm. Nelvana Enterprises is the international distribution agent, while Nelvana and Thunderbird co-distribute in the US.
