Nickelodeon to Premiere 'Drama Club' in Latin America and Brazil in January 2022


Drama Club Premieres January 2022 on Nickelodeon in Latin America and Brazil

Share it: #DramaClub

The curtains have risen on Nickelodeon’s new mockumentary-style comedy series Drama Club.  From creators and executive producers Monica Sherer and Madeline Whitby (All That, Betch), the series follows a group of middle schoolers as they shine a light on the inner workings of their school’s overlooked drama club.  Drama Club (10 half-hour episodes) will premiere in Latin America (Latinoamérica) and Brazil (Brasil) on Friday 7th January 2022 at 7 pm (CO) | 8 pm (VE) | 9 pm (MX/CL) | 21.30h (BR) | 00h (AR).

In the premiere episode of Drama Club, the Tookus Middle School Drama Club has a new student director who is excited to take over, change the school’s perception of the club, and earn their new principal’s support. However, when their choreographer suffers an injury, the kids quickly realize that their only hope to save the situation is to turn to a rival on their school’s beloved football team for help.

Drama Club stars Telci Huynh (God Friended Me) as “Mack,” Nathan Janak (All That) as “Oliver,” Lili Brennan (Silicon Valley) as “Darcy,” Kensington Tallman (Side Hustle) as “Bianca,” Chase Vacnin (The Many Saints of Newark) as “Bench” and Artyon Celestine (Dancing with the Stars: Juniors) as “Skip.”

Drama Club is produced by Awesomeness (The J TeamTo All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Trinkets, PEN15), with Shelley Zimmerman and Brin Lukens serving as executive producers. Eric Falconer (How I Met Your Mother, Blue Mountain State) serves as executive producer and showrunner. The series premiere is directed by Nancy Hower (Teachers, Those Who Can’t). Production of Drama Club for Nickelodeon and Awesomeness is overseen by Shauna Phelan, Senior Vice President, Live-Action Scripted Content; and Zack Olin, Senior Vice President, Live Action.

Drama Club made its world premiere digitally in the U.S. on Nickelodeon's Nick app and on Saturday, March 13, followed by an encore presentation airing on Nickelodeon on Saturday, March 20, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The series made its debut in Latin America and Brazil on Paramount+ in October 2021.

Paramount to Release New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' VOD Content in 2023

2023 may be the year of the rabbit, but it'll also be the year of the turtle!

Mark Kingston, Senior Vice President (SVP), International Licensing at ViacomCBS Consumer Products, has revealed that Nickelodeon and Paramount are planning to release brand new Video-on-Demand (VOD) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles content in 2023!

Speaking to LicensingSource about ViacomCBS Consumer Products' upcoming highlights, Kingston revealed: “We’re also thrilled to see new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles content coming to viewers screens on VOD in 2023, as well as a new Paramount movie.”

Not much is currently known about the new TMNT content for streaming services, including whether it'll tie-in to Nickelodeon and Paramount's upcoming TMNT movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Chapter, currently set to be released in theaters on August 11, 2023, or be standalone content, featuring a whole new take of the beloved justice-sworn, pizza-fuelled, half-shelled heroes. It's also currently not known whether the project will be a full series, short-form content or a feature length film, and what VoD service the content is for.

Nickelodeon first announced that they were partnering with Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver to develop a new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film in June 2020. It will also be Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG theatrical release. Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Connected, Disenchantment) will direct. Brendan O’Brian (Neighbors, Sorority Rising) will write the script. Nickelodeon’s Executive Vice President Ramsey Naito will lead the production for Nickelodeon, alongside Point Grey Pictures’s Josh Fagen. Paramount Pictures will distribute the film globally.

Plot details for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remain under wraps, but Rogen previously revealed that the film will use the "teenage" part of the title as the "jumping off point for the film."

This is the most recent heroes in a half shell project from Nickelodeon since taking the reigns of the franchise. Nickelodeon acquired the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2009 and launched a CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series which re-energized these iconic characters of this wildly popular franchise in 2012. Nickelodeon followed up the CG-animated series, which ran for four seasons, with Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which premiered in 2018 and ran for two seasons. The action-comedy series follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City.

In addition to TMNT: The Next Chapter, Nickelodeon has two other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the pipeline: The network is working with Netflix on an original animated 2D film based on Rise of the TMNT, set to be released in 2022, and Colin Jost (Saturday Night Live) and his brother Casey (Impractical Jokers) are reportedly penning a new live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie for Paramount.

It's currently unknown which streaming platform the new TMNT content is being produced for, however, it'll most likely be released on Paramount+, the streaming service from Nickelodeon and Paramount's parent company, ViacomCBS, where the majority of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles content currently lives.

The news comes as Nickelodeon is looking to build up its beloved franchises, including producing new movies and spin-off series based on SpongeBob SquarePants and Avatar: The Last Airbender, the latter of which Nickelodeon formed Avatar Studios, headed by original series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino.

The world’s most fearsome fighting team began as a joke in 1983, but the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have had serious success ever since. Countless comic books, television shows, films, and video games have shown the group’s lasting appeal. So it’s no surprise they’re gearing up for more adventures.

SpongeBob's Goofy Goober Guitar is REAL

SpongeBob's Goofy Goober Guitar is REAL. | Vailskibum94

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004) is one of the greatest pieces of SpongeBob media out there. As the original series finale of SpongeBob, Goofy Goober Rock became an unforgettable moment for fans. As it turns out, the guitar from it was created in real life.

Stephen Hillenburg intended for The SpongeBob Movie to be the ultimate ending of the franchise, which explains why the Goofy Goober song had an insane amount of effort put into it. A YouTuber by the name of "yo it's kevin" decided to bring SpongeBob's Goofy Goober Rock guitar to life, even flying to California and handing it over to Tom Kenny himself! How did this happen, and why are people still talking about the first SpongeBob movie, even almost two decades later?

I built the Goofy Goober Guitar for SPONGEBOB (Tom Kenny) | When You're Bored

It seems as though Plankton has infiltrated the set of When You're Bored. In an attempt to save my boys, I decided to build a working Goofy Goober guitar from the SpongeBob movie. Alas, I was in over my head, and needed guidance from a real Goofy Goober: Tom Kenny (the voice of SpongeBob). I traveled across the country, and in doing so, realized the true power of creativity.

Special thanks to Tom Kenny and Jill Talley.

Paramount Plus to Premiere 'Big Nate' in 2022; Star-Studded Cast Announced


Ben Giroux, Dove Cameron, Bryce Charles, Daniel Cohen, Rob Delaney,
Carolyn Hennesy, Arnie Pantoja, Kevin Michael Richardson and Charlie Schlatter
Voice Star in All-New Series Based on the Best-Selling Children’s Book Series

Series Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio

Share it: @ParamountPlus @Nickelodeon #BigNate

Dec. 14, 2021 – The misadventures of BIG NATE are coming to Paramount+. The all-new animated series from Nickelodeon Animation Studio is based on the best-selling children’s books and comic strip written and drawn by acclaimed author and cartoonist Lincoln Peirce. Set to debut early next year on Paramount+ in the U.S., Latin America, Canada, and Australia, the eponymous 26-episode series follows Nate, a precocious 11-year-old boy, and his best friends as they navigate sixth grade with humor and style.

Paramount+’s BIG NATE animated series will feature brand-new original storylines centered on Nate, a sixth-grade kid who has a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness to the world. Whether he’s dealing with disasters at home or detention at school, Nate Wright is no stranger to a challenge. Luckily, he’s able to express himself through the world of cartoons that he creates. Charming, mischievous and a magnet for misadventure – trouble is always fun when Nate is around.

The stellar lineup of actors lending their voice talent to the beloved characters of BIG NATE include:

  • Ben Giroux (HENRY DANGER, DANGER FORCE, HART OF DIXIE) as Nate Wright – Sixth-grader Nate Wright believes he is AWESOME. He’s funny, entertaining and even a little insecure, but he’s not about to let the rest of the world know that.
  • Dove Cameron (“Descendants,” “Liv and Maddie”) as Ellen Wright – Ellen is Nate’s older sister and the object of much angst for Nate. If Ellen has flaws, Nate’s never seen them, but he’s determined to find them anyway.
  • Rob Delaney (“Catastrophe,” “Deadpool 2,” “Hobbs & Shaw”) as Martin Wright – Martin is a great single dad to Nate and Ellen, but life has not gone exactly as he planned. Parenting two kids is tough, and he’s doing it alone. But Martin doesn’t complain. Well, he does complain, but who doesn’t?
  • Bryce Charles (“Blackish,” “Young Love”) as Dee Dee Holloway – Dee Dee is smart, excitable and able to pull off whatever the boys are incapable (or unwilling) to do, which makes her an invaluable member of the group.
  • Daniel Cohen (LEGO CITY ADVENTURES, “Body of Proof”) as Francis Pope – Francis tries to keep Nate’s wild ideas in check, or at least keep Nate out of unnecessary trouble. They’ve been inseparable since they met in kindergarten, and Francis is the friend Nate counts on the most.
  • Arnie Pantoja (“Final Fantasy VII Remake,” “Trolls: The Beat Goes On”) as Teddy Ortiz – Teddy is Nate’s main co-conspirator, a partner in chaos always willing to go along with Nate’s crazy schemes. But if there’s a chance they’ll get caught, Teddy has an amazing way of disappearing.
  • Charlie Schlatter (THE LOUD HOUSE, “Justice League Action”) as Chad Applewhite – Chad is a sweet, harmless kid, and one of Nate’s good friends. Like Teddy, Chad is willing to help Nate with all his schemes, he’s just not quite bright enough to run away when things go sideways.
  • Kevin Michael Richardson (TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, “The Simpsons,” “American Dad”) as Principal Nichols – Principal Nichols is a good guy who struggles with being an authority figure. He tries to act like a friend to his students, but he always comes off as an adult who’s trying way too hard to be “cool.”
  • Carolyn Hennesy (“Lego Star Wars: All-Stars,” “True Blood”) as Mrs. Godfrey – Affectionately called the “Creature Teacher” by Nate, Mrs. Godfrey more than lives up to the name. The woman is perpetually on edge and always waiting for someone – usually Nate – to step out of line.

BIG NATE on Paramount+ is executive produced by Mitch Watson (“All Hail King Julien”) and John Cohen (“The Angry Birds Movie”) and produced by Amy McKenna (“Beware the Batman”), with Lincoln Peirce serving as consultant throughout development and production. Bridget McMeel is co-producer.

Peirce’s humor-based books about Nate and his friends have spent more than 150 weeks on the New York Times’ best-seller list. The BIG NATE book series ( is published worldwide in 33 languages and available as ebooks and audiobooks and as an app, Big Nate: Comix by U! Additionally, the BIG NATE comic strip is syndicated by Andrews McMeel Syndication and appears in more than 400 newspapers and online daily at The BIG NATE comic collections are published by Andrews McMeel Publishing, and the BIG NATE novels are published by HarperCollins Children’s Books.

BIG NATE joins Paramount+’s growing lineup of original and exclusive kids’ programming, including STAR TREK: PRODIGY, RUGRATS and KAMP KORAL: SPONGEBOB’S UNDER YEARS, and original movies including THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE ON THE RUN, THE J TEAM, PAW PATROL: THE MOVIE and CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG, which recently premiered on the service the same day it hit theaters and set a new record as the service’s most-watched original film.

Guest Column | Three trends that will be winners in 2022 to engage with kids

2021 was a mixed year of hope along with a challenge to create new benchmarks. With a kids-first approach, broadcasters have been trying to entertain as well as empower kids at the same time’. Narrating stories that delight the minds and hearts of young audiences by introducing numerous pioneering category first engagements and initiatives is crucial to keep their spirits high. In India, with multiple spoken languages and dialects, engaging kids in a language they are comfortable continues to drive visibility. It is essential to develop an unbreakable bond with kids, in order to bring them closer to stories in a language of their choice to further strengthen the bond. Creating multi-lingual content to drive a deeper connect gives all stakeholders an opportunity to engage in a relatable manner. This target group which is dynamic, requires evolving strategies to reach out to them. 

And here are three trends that will be winners in 2022 in order to engage with kids:

Screen agnostic content

The pandemic was an epoch changing event for almost everyone, but it also had a significant impact on children, too. With kids being confined within their homes for more than a year, they were compelled to see the outside world through the lens of a screen. Today, kids are consuming content across all mediums, be it traditional mode or new age platforms. Given the success of the kids’ genre, it is important to ensure that popular characters and stories are present in all spaces to captivate young viewers. In the past few years, we at Viacom18 have been creating content with a screen and pipe agnostic approach and we strongly believe that this will continue to see greater momentum even in 2022. Content is specifically being created for YouTube and other OTT platforms thus amplifying content across multiple screens. This ecosystem of content is evolving beyond television screen and as content creators, offering experiences that are as per screen preference is crucial in today’s evolving times. 

Affinity towards home-grown IPs

As content creators, it is of utmost importance to know your audience and their evolving tastes. Kids are a very dynamic group of audience that keep you on your toes. Only if you know your target audience well, can you build a strong resonance value. It is important to be able to create the character which can build a very strong relationship and bond with the child. For a child to return back to your channel, it is important for the child to fall in love with the show, character and the storyline. The kids’ category in India has grown from strength to strength over the last decade with local characters taking centre stage and becoming a part of every kid’s daily life. At Nickelodeon in India, we have been torch-bearers in driving this growth through introducing kids to many iconic local characters that are endearing and have struck a chord with kids. Creating home-grown stories and characters will give an opportunity to create content that kids love and find comfort in. These home-grown IPs will further lead to opportunities beyond the screen through various immersive experiences. 

Unique brand partnerships:

Compared to the other genres, the kids’ category is still considered under-indexed when it comes to revenue or investments. But with an increase in the kids’ viewership, brands are now setting their foot in this category at a slow and steady pace. The category is also leisurely gaining attention from different brands for partnership. Engaging kids beyond the screen through immersive and unique brand partnerships will result in deeper engagement with the audience. 

Considering the daily changing scenarios hampering routines, kids have managed to stay ahead of the curve. Today, kids have a ‘bring it on’ attitude which helps them embrace anything and everything that comes their way.


Marketing To Hyper Current Kids

Nickelodeon is looking to hone its strategies to engage and inform kids in the most meaningful ways in the coming year

Marketing to kids in 2022 will be like juggling multiple balls with great skill and speed. This target group is dynamic, quick to adapt and the true change agents of society. In a day and age when reality changes daily, kids even though cut off from their usual routines and rituals have truly managed to stay ahead of the curve. They  are hyper-connected, resilient and ready to embrace whatever comes their way. When it comes to doing what we do best at Nickelodeon, our approach has always been kids first. What kids need at this time besides top-notch entertainment, is to be kept safe, informed, enthused and engaged. Here are a few of the trends that would be worth watching out for while communicating with kids in 2022.

The Change Agents
The rise of the kid who wants to make a difference is here to stay. After having been exposed to the realities of the pandemic, kids have emerged as change agents who wish to help. Some of the biggest citizen movements and initiatives were championed by kids who went out of their way to mobilise resources for those in need. Brands would need to empower kids and allow them to be heard. All this can be done in a light-hearted manner that would appeal to them but it’s imperative that kids be taken seriously.

Content Across Multiple Screens
Kids are very open to experimenting with content- be it bite-sized or snacky, long-form, dance videos or AI-enabled and immersive. The more the message is sharply curated, the more you will have the attention of this TG. The pandemic reinstated the power and perks of such communication and brands have the opportunity to have a more meaningful dialogue than they could in the past. Kids are naturally comfortable with multiple screens. Whether it is watching their favourite toons on TV or a tablet, playing games with favourite characters on mobile, marketing plans need to be pivoted to suit the needs of the current environment.

Adoption & Deeper Integration of Technology
Kids are the earliest adopters when it comes to technology. This generation is widely exposed to the use of technologies like voice search, hyper-personalised experiences, artificial intelligence and social media as a way of life. The digital world allows children to interact with their favorite toons through games, AR filters, GIFs and stickers on social media platforms. Creating digital strategies has thus become a creative and engaging marketing tool for every marketeer talking to kids.

Influencer Marketing
Influencer marketing has taken on a life of its own in the past few months and is only set to grow. With the increase in ownership of personal handheld devices, brands have been able to create amazing brand stories specific to the platform, be it YouTube or Instagram. The new breed of influencers is an effective way of reaching kid who is very tech-savvy and aware of the message they wish to consume.

Innovation in Brand Collaborations
Kids share a bond with their favourite toons and creating innovative brand partnerships is another marketing tool that helps to engage and entice kids beyond television screens. Collaborating with like-minded brands that kids love can create deeper bonds.

Despite all the innovations and rapid acceleration in technology, we must remember that kids want to be heard and want to escape into their own world of entertainment that fuels their imagination. Happy 2022!


Year Ender: Viacom18 head of marketing – kids TV network Sonali Bhattacharya talks about Nickelodeon’s marketing campaigns and reveals their 2022 plans

While the pandemic disrupted various plans, the marketing teams had to adapt newer techniques in a short span of time to continue to cover the new grounds, and confront the unprecedented challenges. One of India’s leading kids’ broadcasters, Nickelodeon, initiated many interesting and innovative marketing techniques to stay connected with the kids even in a crisis.

In an interview with AnimationXpress, Viacom18 head of marketing – kids TV network Sonali Bhattacharya shared the various challenges they faced, how the channel promoted its shows during the pandemic and gave details about its different marketing initiatives.

Speaking about the challenges that the marketing team faced during the pandemic, Bhattacharya mentioned, “Within one night, half of our marketing plans had to be shelved as they couldn’t be put into motion as none of the touchpoints existed anymore. We had to pivot our plans overnight, and think multi-screen and reach different platforms. We started curating our content in such a way that it should bond with kids on any possible screen they are connected to because it was a huge and single source of entertainment to kids when they were indoors.”

She further added, “Escaping in the world of their favourite cartoon characters gave the kids a great sense of respite, relief, and positive energy. During the lockdowns, a lot of things we did were DIY and collaborated with a lot of influencers to make the kids engage and participate from their own homes. We launched #Nicksaysdance,#Sonicschoolofpool where Sonic toons gave kids a lot of tips on digital and technological hacks, and shortcuts that helped them to perform well at school and virtual classes. We tried to make the screen time as meaningful for the child by keeping them extremely positive. As a leading brand, we always keep kids as our first priority. As things are getting normal and opening, we are hopeful that we connect on-ground again but as we know the reality changes everyday.”

Bhattacharya believes that while marketing content for kids, the kids’ marketer should keep the child’s safety in mind, and the content should be light-hearted and humorous which clicks best with the kids. “Nickelodeon always empowers kids and gives them a platform to express themselves. They are the most innocent target groups and at the same time very dynamic,” added Bhattacharya.

Brand Collaboration

As the kids and families were homebound during the lockdown, Nick collaborated with various food brands like Belgian Waffle, Smoking Joe’s, and New York Burrito Company to make the food reach the kids in Nickelodeon branded boxes with their show stickers. Commenting on the collaboration with the food brands and how the response has been from the kids and families, Bhattacharya elaborated, “During the lockdown kids and families are locked up indoors and there was a huge surge of home deliveries as people were not able to go out and eat their favourite foods. We saw a massive rise in the way Swiggy and Zomato delivered the food. We were challenged on how to reach people and kids during the pandemic, as we were not allowed to do on-ground activation which we typically follow to engage with kids. We had to think out of the box and innovate to see how we reach out to kids in a positive and effective way. Then we thought of partnering with food brands and giving Nickelodeon twist and fun on waffles, donuts, pizzas which are the most favourite food for kids and families. The food products and packaging were curated with cartoon characters like Golmaal Junior, Chikoo Aur Bunty, as kids share a great bond with Nicktoons. It did wonders for our partners, as partnering with leading cartoon characters who have a strong bond with kids is a win-win for them. It was a very big success for both, the innovation we tried paid off very well.”

Digital Campaigns

Nick has always stepped ahead in keeping the kids entertained, engaged, and connected with their friends and social peers. The channel kickstarted various digital campaigns like #toastyourdost, #beaherotoyoursuperhero,#nostressexpress, and many more. “Lot of partnerships happened through online and missed calls as kids are now digital native and for them to get connected and participate in a contest is something they love to do. One of our campaign – #toastyourdost – was launched in the month of friendship, as friendship saw a great change during the lockdown. Even though the kids were away from school and were meeting each other only at playgrounds, they managed to stay connected virtually. We wanted to give them a platform and opportunity to celebrate and toast every kind of friend they have in the group whether it may be a bukkad dost, chippo dost, late lateef dost. We always look forward to making the kids express themselves and again this campaign turned out to be the best as a lot of conversations took place on social media and some amazing anecdotes were shared between friends. It worked well for Nick,” shared the marketing head.

Other than launching new shows and new episodes to keep the kids engaged and entertained, the broadcaster kept the little one’s health in mind and partnered with SARVA Yoga Studios to bring Yoga closer to its little fans and educate them about the enormous benefits derived from Yoga. Nickelodeon brought yoga to its audiences in a more cool and fun manner through a unique interactive Yoga workshop with Nicktoons Shiva, Rudra, and Happy. 

In an attempt to redefine the craze for Ludo through the kids’ most favourite characters, thus making the game more fun to play, Nick partnered with Google. Talking about the success and reach the Nicktoons Ludo achieved, Bhattacharya mentioned, “We never imagined it would be such a success. Nostalgia turned out to be a very big book for audiences during the lockdown. Everything that was popular a few years ago suddenly came back with a huge front seat; be it a mythological content or a parent sitting and watching Motu Patlu as a stress buster with kids at home. Games like Ludo, Carrom, Snakes and Ladders were played by kids and parents when they were locked up at home. So we thought of giving an amazing new twist to the classic games. We approached Google to support us in this initiative. The beauty of the game was that it has been customised with Nicktoons Motu-Patlu, Rudra-Rangeela, Shiva-Reva, and Happy-Pinaki. We also curated games like Snakes and Ladders with Happy and Pinaki and Carrom with Chikoo Aur Bunty. This initiative was appreciated and received well by kids as the bond they share with Nicktoons is phenomenal.”

Plans for 2022

Revealing Nick licensing and merchandising plans for 2022 and how they adapted to digital creative methods by curating Nicktoons GIFs, AR  filters, and stickers to make kids digital experience more interactive, Bhattacharya said, “Merchandising is an ongoing process as kids want to have a physical connection with characters they adore so much; be it a school bag with Rudra on it, or water bottle with Shiva on it, or notebook with Dora on it. It is not going to end till the kids share the unique friendships with their favourite toons. 

We have many plans in our mind, and as things are opening up, it is going to be better and best in the coming years. We are getting newer brands onboard and our current roster of toons are foraying into far deeper categories of products; from consumer goods, apparel, to electronics and we are also moving into virtual space which we don’t characterise as merchandising and licensing but it is a creative marketing engagement we do with the audience through our Nicktoons GIFs, stickers, emoji which is all about moving into digital space and giving that connect to our kids.”

Looking forward to 2022, a hopeful Bhattacharya said, “In 2022, we will continue to cater a lot of entertainment and we have planned a lot of marketing campaigns where we connect with kids multi-screen, curate content by getting many popular influencers on board. We continue to empower, bring smiles on kids’ faces. We are planning for many new launches. As things are opening up in upcoming months, you can see our marketing campaigns taking on a larger scale beyond screens. Looking forward to 2022 as there is a lot in the pipeline!”
