"Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero" is an animated comedy adventure series on Disney XD about Penn Zero, a regular boy who inherits the not-so-regular job of part-time hero.

The series follows Penn Zero and his best friends Sashi, an overqualified part-time sidekick, and Boone, an under-qualified part-time wise man, as they zap to other dimensions to fill in for heroes in need. Each mission takes the team to unpredictable epic worlds where they must battle evil part-time villain Rippen and his part-time minion, Larry. Whether superhero, fish-prince, clown cop, giant monster or tiny action-figure, Penn uses his unconventional heroic skills to save the day — his own way.

The voice cast includes Thomas Middleditch ("Silicon Valley") as Penn, alongside Adam DeVine ("Pitch Perfect") as Boone, Tania Gunadi ("Enlisted") as Sashi, Alfred Molina ("Spider-Man 2") as Rippen and Larry Wilmore ("The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore") as Larry. Recurring are Lea Thompson ("Back to the Future") as Penn's mother, Vonnie; Gary Cole ("Veep") as Penn's father, Brock; Rosie Perez ("The View") as Penn's Aunt Rose; Lenny Venito ("The Neighbors") as Penn's Uncle Chuck.

The notable guest cast for season one includes Garry Marshall ("Happy Days"), Beau Bridges ("The Descendants"), Sigourney Weaver ("Avatar"), Sean Astin ("Lord of the Rings"), Wanda Sykes ("The New Adventures of Old Christine"), Jason Alexander ("Seinfeld"), Jeff Gordon (NASCAR driver), Diana Rigg ("Game of Thrones"), Paul Reubens ("Pee-Wee's Playhouse"), Jane Kaczmarek ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Elizabeth Henstridge ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Adam West ("Batman"), Chris Parnell ("Saturday Night Live"), Peter Stormare ("The Blacklist"), Maria Bamford ("Arrested Development") and Olivia Holt ("I Didn't Do It").

"Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero" is produced by Disney Television Animation and created and executive-produced by Jared Bush ("All of Us," "Zootopia") and Sam Levine ("Tarzan," "Bolt"). Bush also serves as writer and Levine as supervising director and the voice of Phyllis and Phil.
