Disney XD has renewed “Next X,” a reality sports series featuring pro athletes in BMX and skateboarding mentoring younger aspirants.
X Games competitors Bucky Lasek and Rune Glifberg (skateboarding) and Daniel Dhers and Gary Young (BMX) have each signed on to mentor a pre- teen prodigy in their sports. Each of the amateurs will then be given a chance to showcase themselves at the X Games, for a special that DIsney XD will air in August.
The premiere of the six-episode second season is scheduled for June 21. Kemp Curley, Bruno Musso and Michael Bloom of Transition Productions produce.
