Discovery Family’s September highlights have confirmed that the U.S. cable network has picked up the latest series from the creators of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, Zak Storm: Super Pirate. The series will debut Saturday, September 16th at 9AM with a special one hour premiere before airing a new episode every Saturday.
Zak Storm follows the adventures of Zak Storm – a headstrong and adventurous kid swept into the Bermuda Triangle while trying to win a surfing competition. Once inside, Zak partners up with a magical sword that allows him to transform into a swashbuckling, renegade hero to face the numerous perils of the unique and diverse Seven Seas of the Triangle. Young Zak sails the Triangle’s seven mysterious seas with an extraordinarily ship and crew comprised of an enchanted talking sword, an Atlantean headstrong female first mate, a thickheaded heavy-fisted Viking, a neurotic space traveler and a poltergeist prankster kid!
