Nickelodeon UK To Premiere "Bella and the Bulldogs" In April 2015

Nickelodeon UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, announced today during a very special sneak-peek preview that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new original comedy series "Bella and the Bulldogs" in April 2015!

In Nick's new comedy ripped right out of the headlines of girls playing traditionally "boy" sports, Bella Dawson, a confident, caring and talented teenager, suddenly finds herself fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming the star quarterback of her middle school football team but also having to navigate the world of her teammates Troy, Sawyer and Newt, without losing her two best friends, Pepper and Sophie from the cheer squad.

Executive produced by Jeff Bushell, the show was created by Nickelodeon Writing Program alumni Gabriel Garza and Jonathan Butler, who also serve as co-executive producers. Garza began his writing career by being selected for the program in 2009, where he met his future writing partner and fellow program alum Jonathan Butler. Prior to selling their pitch to Nick and beginning development on "Bella and the Bulldogs", both Butler and Garza were staff writers on "The Haunted Hathaways".

Nick UK's official "Bella and the Bulldogs" webpage features information about the series and each of the characters in the show - Bella Dawson (Brec Bassinger), Troy Dixon (Coy Stewart), Sawyer Higgins (Jackie Radinsky), Newt (Buddy Handleson), Pepper (Haley Tju) and Sophie (Lilimar Hernandez), Ace McFumbles (Rio Mangini), Carrie Dawson (Annie Tedesco) and Coach Russell (Dorien Wilson) - plus fantastic photo galleries, including a 'All About Brec' photo gallery introducing Nickelodeon star Brec Bassinger and a picture gallery featuring a tour of the studio set, a exclusive "Which Bulldog are you?" quiz, and a fan poll asking what would you do first if you just made quarterback!
