Canuck broadcaster Corus Entertainment and its production studio Nelvana have partnered with “Hannah Montana” co-creator and exec producer Michael Poryes on a live-action comedy series, “Life With Boys.”

Production on 26 half-hour episodes will begin in February. Nelvana will distribute the series in Canada, Latin America and Asia; Helion Pictures in Australia, France and the U.K.; and Classic Media in all other territories.

“Life” will preem in Canada in September 2011 on Corus’ kids cabler YTV, and it has been pre-sold to Canal J in France, Nickelodeon in the U.K. and ABC in Australia.

Show centers on a 13-year-old who lives with her single, overprotective dad and her three brothers.

Poryes, who created “Life,” is co-creator and exec producer of “That’s So Raven” and was co-exec producer on “Veronica’s Closet” and “Cybill.”
