The animated series follows 12-year-old Guy Hamdon (Sam Vincent, "Voltron Force"), a natural cut-up who fancies himself an extreme dude with his own macho catch phrase, "It's a GUY thing." Guy lives the dream of every rough-and-tumble boy when he discovers an awesome power ring, which transforms him into a mighty superhero. Pretty cool, but there's just one tiny catch - the ring that gives Guy his amazing superpowers was only meant to be worn by a girl and the result is absolutely she-larious. As the amazing crime-fighting SheZow, Guy must use his superpowers to battle mega-villains while sporting an outrageous female superhero costume, which actually ends up helping him on his own personal journey toward becoming one heck of a super man.
With "SheZow," Hub Network takes viewers on a rollercoaster ride of comical adventures and unforgettable characters. Blending the tradition of a classic action-filled comic book with the quick wit of a modern day comedy, "SheZow" brings to life a new kind of superhero. Through hilarious "miss" adventures, Guy, along with his bossy twin sister Kelly (Diana Kaarina, "Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale"), and his best bud and side-kick Maz (Matt Hill, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III") fight villains and protect their city - all while having the time of their lives.
The half-hour acquired series was created and written by Obie Scott Wade ("Julius & Friends"). Loris Kramer Lunsford ("Johnny Test"), Jason Netter ("Wolverine and the X-Men"), Wade, Gillian Carr ("Flea-bitten"), Huoi Seong Low, and Brenda Wooding all serve as executive producers.
