Disney XD sets 'NBA Fit' bow
Fitness show for kids premieres Friday
By Jon Weisman
Disney XD's "NBA Fit," a fitness skein for kids, will feature NBA players including Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic.
While most of television loads up for the royal wedding Friday, Disney XD is dedicating a large part of its day to sports.
The centerpiece of its effort is the series premiere of "NBA Fit," a six-episode skein encouraging health and fitness for kids that will feature such NBA stars as Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Derrick Rose. NBA Entertainment is producing the series.
Disney XD will also offer sports-themed episodes of such programs as "Phineas and Ferb" and "Pair of Kings."
The Disney brand is hardly abandoning the royal nuptials, however.
Like many other broadcast nets and cablers, Disney Channel has a week of themed programming on tap, including "A Modern Fairytale: The Royal Wedding Week" and presentations of such prince-and-princess films as "Enchanted."
