That Girl Lay Lay is a live-action buddy comedy series that follows Lay Lay (Alaya “That Girl Lay Lay” High), an avatar from a personal affirmation app that magically comes to life, and her best friend Sadie (Gabrielle Nevaeh Green) as they navigate life as teenagers and discover who they truly are.

“I’m so excited to continue this journey with Lay Lay, Nickelodeon and all the talented actors, writers and crew that make this show the hit that it is,” said creator and showrunner David A. Arnold. “Stay tuned because we have so much more fun coming!”

“I couldn’t be more proud of the show that we were able to create with David A. Arnold and Nickelodeon,” said executive producer Will Packer. “That Girl Lay Lay is the series that so many kids need in their lives today for so many reasons, and I can’t wait for everyone to see all the adventures coming in season two.”

For her work on the series, That Girl Lay Lay was recently nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the “Outstanding Performance by a Youth (Series, Special, Television Movie or Limited-Series)” category.

Season two of the series will bring more music and magical powers as the two best friends continue to go on even more exciting adventures, working to fulfill Lay Lay’s desire to experience everything that comes with being a real teenager. That Girl Lay Lay also stars Peyton Perrine III as Sadie’s brother, Marky; Tiffany Daniels as Sadie’s mom, Trish; and Thomas Hobson as Sadie’s dad, Bryce.

The series marks Nickelodeon’s first project under an overall deal with That Girl Lay Lay to develop original multiform programming. In addition to her comedy series, Nickelodeon’s comprehensive strategy for That Girl Lay Lay includes supporting her music career and an exclusive line of consumer products.

The Superstar Parade at Universal Studios in Orlando to Take Final Bow on June 4

The Superstar Parade at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida will make its final loop around the park on June 4, 2022, after a 10-year run.

The 30-minute parade made its official debut on May 8, 2012, bringing favorite characters from Universal Pictures, Illuminations Entertainment, and Nickelodeon television shows into the park in a high-energy procession set to a dramatic musical score.

During the original version, guests were treated to floats featuring characters from beloved Nickelodeon series SpongeBob SquarePants and Diego & Dora, and the hit movies Despicable Me. and Hop.

Along with floats and vehicles themed to the movies and animated television shows, the extravaganza included stilt walkers and Minions-inspired performers, as well as fish-themed characters on roller skates and colorfully costumed dancers.

In December 2016, two floats featuring Max, Duke, Gidget, Chloe, Snowball, and more from Illumination Entertainment’s movie The Secret Life of Pets were added – with one of them themed to New York’s Central Park and the other themed as an apartment with the city’s skyline – along with performers on bicycles and new dance routines.

After a closure due to the pandemic, Universal’s Superstar Parade was the first major parade to reopen in an Orlando theme park in June 2021.

“Universal’s Superstar Parade will end its run on June 4 to make way for new entertainment experiences,” Universal Orlando said in a statement.

The official description for the parade reads:

"Break Out the Confetti and Join the Fun.

"Boogie down with Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants,” Dora and Diego. Rock out with Gru, Agnes, Margo, Edith and the Minions from Illumination’s Despicable Me. And catch funny moments from The Secret Life of Pets as the streets of Universal Studios come alive with elaborately themed floats, energetic street performers and spectacular music."

The final showing is likely to mark the last time characters from Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora & Diego, The Secret Life of Pets, and Despicable Me will be on parade together. It will most likely mean that this will be the last time Nickelodeon will have a presence at Universal Studios Orlando for the time being, following the closure of Nickelodeon Studios and Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast.

Closure of the parade will make way for new entertainment experiences. Details have not yet been announced.

The news comes just after Universal Orlando Resort permanently closed Shrek 4-D and the Classic Monsters Cafe. Universal has been in the midst of conducting many construction projects around its two theme parks. Revenge of the Mummy has been closed for a lengthy refurbishment since January. At Islands of Adventure, If I Ran The Zoo and the Caro-Seuss-el are undergoing construction, and Poseidon’s Fury just reopened a little more than a month ago after a two-year closure.

The service unveiled a vast programming line-up that features more than 70 unique and locally curated channels now live in each country.

CANAL+ in France Adds Nickelodeon Ukraine Pluto TV

Nick News Brief: French operator CANAL+ has added Nickelodeon Ukraine Pluto TV to its channel line-up. Nickelodeon Ukraine Pluto TV is Paramount Global's ad-free channel which broadcasts children’s content in the Ukrainian language and was launched for Ukrainian children who have been displaced by Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine. The channel is on air for 24 hours daily.

CANAL+ : un nouveau plan de service ce 17 mai avec l’ajout de Nickelodeon Ukraine

CANAL+ a annoncé un nouveau plan de service ce 17 mai sur les décodeurs. Mais celui-ci sera vraiment minime avec des opérations invisibles mais une nouvelle chaîne sera disponible.

Un plan de service sera mis en place dès ce 17 mai selon CANAL+ via l’espace abonné. La chaîne cryptée n’a pas donné d’informations à propos de celui-ci mais il s’agit d’une « opération technique complétement transparente » selon l’assistance CANAL+

En d’autres termes, ce plan de service est plus une mise à jour du décodeur qui apporte seulement des changements dans le logiciel du décodeur comme des corrections de bugs ou autres mais cela ne devrait pas avoir d’impact.

Cependant, il y aura bien une petite différence puisque CANAL+ a annoncé l’arrivée de Nickelodeon Ukraine via cette mise à jour.


From Freenews:

Nickelodeon Ukraine : la chaîne jeunesse débarque sur Canal

Une nouvelle chaîne jeunesse s’est ajoutée dans les contenus Live du groupe Canal et de l’application myCANAL. ll s’agit de Nickelodeon Ukraine.

Au lendemain du problème technique lié à l’accès au Live de myCANAL, le groupe Canal a effectué une mise à jour de la numérotation des chaînes disponibles sur les différents canaux.

Durant cette mise à jour, le groupe télévisuel en a profité pour y ajouter une nouvelle chaîne dédiée et destinée aux enfants ukrainiens réfugiés. Son nom ? Nickelodeon Ukraine.

Accessible sur le canal 411 du décodeur Canal, la chaîne Nickelodeon Ukraine diffusant des contenus en langue ukrainienne est également disponible sur l’application myCANAL, depuis le Live.

Pour information, Nickelodeon Ukraine est une chaîne appartenant à la maison-mère Pluto TV. Il y a quelques semaines, cette même chaîne a intégré le bouquet des Freebox et est visible sur le canal 167.
