THE ZONE GETS A SPY-FUL WITH NICKELODEON'S THE X'S
The animated Nickelodeon spy series, The X's, joins YTV's The Zone Thursday, April 6 at 4:30 p.m. Unlike any other family, The X's are four of the best secret agents in the world.

The X's: Mr. X (voiced by Patrick Warburton), Mrs. X (voiced by Wendie Malick), Tuesday X (voiced by Lynsey Bartilson) and Trumen X (voiced by Jansen Panettiere), make up the charismatic family of world class super-spies living incognito in suburbia. When they are not combating evil-doers, they strive to act like average suburbanites – but blending in is hard to do, especially for a family who is prone to trimming hedges with a flamethrower.
