Nickelodeon UK Hints They May Start To Show New Comedy Series "Wendell & Vinnie" Soon

Nickelodeon UK has hinted in a promo photo they have posted to Nick UK's official account on the social network media management system, below, that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK may be planning to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand new live-action family comedy show called "Wendell & Vinnie", which stars and is produced with Nickelodeon Productions by Nickelodeon Star and "iCarly" actor Jerry Trainor, soon!:

Nick's "Wendell & Vinnie" was originally planned to be broadcast in Nickelodeon USA's nighttime programming block, Nick at Nite (stylized as nick@nite), but was moved to be part of Nick USA just before the series premiered on Saturday 16th February 2013. As the show was originally made to be suited towards a older audience, it is thought that Nick UK & Eire may air a special 'Viewer Discretion Is Advised' notice sting just before each episode is shown, similar to the one Nick UK airs just before each episode of the Australian teen-oriented television drama series "Dance Academy" (screenshot image below):

Nick@Nite's all-new comedy series "Wendell & Vinnie" is a multi-camera scripted half-hour sitcom that follows 30-year-old Vinnie Bassett (Trainor) living the life of a carefree bachelor, when he suddenly becomes the legal guardian of his precocious, wise-beyond-his-years nephew, Wendell (Buddy Handleson, "Shake It Up") forming a hysterical odd-couple family dynamic. Nicole Sullivan ("Rita Rocks", "MadTV", "The King of Queens", "The Penguins of Madagascar") also stars as Vinnie's older unlucky-in-love sister, Wilma, with Haley Strode ("Gangster Squad") as Vinnie's newly divorced neighbor and love interest, Taryn.
