By Errol Lewis

After months of anticipation, Disney Branded Television announced today that “The Villains of Valley View,” starring “General Hospital” actor James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine), will debut Friday, June 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes on Disney Channel followed by “Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion” which also debuts with two back-to-back episodes starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.  The two new series are being paired as a “Villains and Superheroes” Friday night block for the kid’s network and today’s announcement comes in honor of National Superhero Day. The shows will stream shortly thereafter on Disney+.

“The Villains of Valley View” centers around a teenage supervillain and her family as they are forced to uproot their lives and change identities. Isabella Pappas plays Havoc/Amy, who, in the premiere episode, stands up to the head of the League of Villains which forces her family to change their identities and relocate to a sleepy Texas suburb. With the help of her effervescent new neighbor Hartley (newcomer Kayden Muller-Janssen), 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.

Stuart plays Amy’s father, Vic/Kraniac, with additional cast members including Lucy Davis (“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”) as Amy’s mother, Eva/Surge, Malachi Barton (Disney Channel’s “Under Wraps”) as Amy’s younger brother, Colby/Flashform, and Reed Horstmann (“The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia”) as Amy’s older brother, Jake/Chao. Patricia Belcher (“The Week of”) recurs as Celia.

“The Villains of Valley View” is created by Chris Peterson and Bryan Moore (“Lab Rats”), who also serve as executive producers and showrunners.

In “Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion,” Mexican American teen Violet Rodriguez is chosen by a magical luchador mask that transforms her into the superhero Ultra Violet, a superhero fighting 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 (“Tiago”), 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 cast as Violet. J.R. Villarreal (“Akeelah and the Bee”) is Cruz De la Vega/Black Scorpion, Marianna Burelli (“Paramedicos”) is Nina Rodriguez, Juan Alfonso (“American Princess”) is Juan Carlos Rodriguez, Brandon Rossel (“Fast Layne”) is Santiago “Tiago” Rodriguez, and newcomers Zelia Ankrum and Bryan Blanco play is Maya Miller-Martinez and Luis León, respectively.

“Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion” is developed and executive produced by Eric S. Garcia and Leo Chu (“Alexa & Katie”), who also serve as showrunners. Additional executive producers include Joe Nussbaum, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit.
