Nickelodeon UK To Start To Air "The Middle" From Monday 27th June 2016, As Part Of nick@nite UK

The online British and Irish TV guide website Digiguide is reporting the exciting news that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, will start to show the popular live-action comedy series The Middle, beginning with season 5, Mondays to Thursdays at 9:00pm from Monday 27th June 2016, as part of Nick UK & Eire's new nick@nite evening programming block, which will launch the same night!

Following the debut of each episode, nick@nite will encore each episode of The Middle the following evening at 9:30pm.

Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country in Orson, Indiana, Frankie Heck (series star Patricia Heaton, Everybody Loves Raymond) is a harried wife and working mother of three who uses her wry wit and sense of humor to get her family through each day intact. Having been fired as the least successful saleswoman at the town's only surviving car dealership, run by Don Ehlert (Brian Doyle-Murray, Ghostbusters II), Frankie re-evaluated her career path and is now working as a dental assistant. Her unflappable husband, Mike (series star Neil Flynn, Scrubs), is manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average -- yes, most definitely average -- family.

Between juggling shifts and picking up fast food dinners eaten in front of the TV, Frankie and Mike raise their kids with love, humor and solid Midwestern practicality. Axl (series star Charlie McDermott, The Office), the oldest, is a jock slacker who eats them out of house and home and walks around the house in his boxers. But his lazy days are numbered as he prepares to enter college via a well-earned sports scholarship. Then there's Sue (series star Eden Sher, The O.C.), their extraordinarily ordinary teen daughter, who fails at just about everything she tries with great gusto. Now a junior in high school, she continues to navigate the raging waters of school life and, to Frankie and Mike's horror, will be driving on her own since recently passing her driver's test -- on the sixth try. And last is Brick (series star Atticus Shaffer, The Penguins of Madagascar, Frankenweenie), their quirky son, who is entering middle school. He reads constantly, whispers and "whoops" to himself and unapologetically marches to the beat of his own drummer. But through all the madness shines a loving family, and together, the Hecks are putting The Middle on the map!

The Middle was created by former Roseanne and Murphy Brown writers Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline of Blackie and Blondie Productions. The show is distributed by Warner Bros. Television Distribution and Blackie and Blondie Productions. The series also airs on Comedy Central in the UK & Ireland.

STORY: Everyone knows the great fairy tale heroes, but you may not be familiar with their most-life changing adventure of all – they got old! To pass their stories onto future generations, they joined together and built a school... this is Regal Academy!

But who knows if the latest generation of fairy tale heroes is going to ride the coattails of their famous grandparents...? Enter Rose, a perfectly normal teenager on Earth who loves two things more than anything else: fairy tales and shoe sales. She gets the surprise of her life with the chance to attend Regal Academy as the granddaughter of Cinderella, vaulting into a life of wonder, magic and princesses who look at her funnily when she brings burgers and pizza to their fancy banquets.

Created and produced by Rainbow in collaboration with Rai Fiction, Regal Academy premiered in Italy last May on Rai YoYo and has been sold in more than 120 countries. Nickelodeon acquired the global broadcast rights To Regal Academy in October 2015.

Additionally, Rainbow's new IP also has more than 80 licensing agreements to its name.

Giochi Preziosi, is the pan-European master toy licensee for the brand; while Guangdong Alpha Animation & Culture Co., which specialises in both toys and animation, will cover the U.S., Canada and Asia; and Witty Toys, which has a strong reputation in toy production and distribution across more than 20 countries, will manage the rest of the world.

Giochi Preziosi is already developing a range that includes fashion dolls and accessories, play sets and role play toys. A range of dolls will be the first toy line on the market and will launch in Europe in the run-up to Christmas 2016, building on the strong expected response to the show's first series (season).

Other licensees already signed on include Justbridge Entertainment (DVD distribution) and Italian publisher Fabbri Editori (storybooks and activity and novelty formats). Procos has also signed a multi-territory agreement to cover the party-ware category.
