Nick Jr. Too To Premiere "Little Charmers" On Monday 22nd June 2015

It's time to Sparkle Up! Nick Jr. UK has announced the exciting news on their website, nickjr.co.uk, that Nick Jr. Too will start to premiere and show "Little Charmers", a brand-new CG-animated preschool series that celebrates the magic of friendship, from Monday 22nd June 2015 at 4:00pm!

"Little Charmers" is an brand-new animated series for pre-schoolers produced by Nelvana Enterprises and Spin Master Entertainment ("PAW Patrol") featuring charmer-in-training, Hazel, and her two best friend charmers, Posie and Lavender, who are getting a broom handle on their special powers.

On any given day in the magical land of Charmville, these novice charmers are excited to break in their magical powers and go on exciting adventures led by fearless go-getter Hazel. She knows while in training she should only use her magic for really important things, but it's just too hard NOT to use magic to go on a cool adventure, help someone, fix something, or just have fun...even when it backfires, which it often does.

Luckily, Hazel has Posie, an apprentice Spellerina and Lavender, who is training to be a Potionista (mixer of magic potions with a fashion flare) to back her up. Together these Little Charmers make their way in the world of wonderment around them. No matter what their fantastical day brings, like accidentally setting loose a herd of unicorns, or teaching a baby dragon to fly, it still always comes down to friendship, learning about yourself and having fun along the way.

"Little Charmers" empowers viewers to feel confident they too have the magic inside (power, talents, abilities, self-esteem, confidence) and can do anything they set their hearts and minds to.

To celebrate Nick Jr. Too starting to show "Little Charmers" from June 2015, Nick Jr. UK's official website has launched the channels official "Little Charmers" show webpage, which features information about the show, character information for Hazel, Lavender, Posie, Seven, Flare and Treble, as well as exclusive online streaming clips and fun creative activities.

London, 19th May 2015 – Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) is forming a new Commercial Innovation group to help advertisers create customised, content-led campaigns that reach beyond existing online advertising inventory to take better advantage of new digital and social media touch points being generated by its brands, including MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central.

The group will work proactively with new and existing Viacom clients to help them develop data-driven, integrated marketing solutions that exploit the unrivalled, multi-platform ability of Viacom's brands to deliver mass consumer engagement across TV, digital and social media.

The team will focus on developing partnerships with third party social media platforms for the benefit of advertisers, such as Lionsgate's exclusive preview of its upcoming release Absolutely Anything on MTV's international Snapchat Discover feed earlier this month. The team will also be responsible for creating bespoke commercial digital products around Viacom's international tentpole events, such as the MTV EMA, which attracted more than half a billion votes and 389 million mentions via social media when it was last staged in Glasgow in November.

O'Ferrall added: "The group will build on our proven success driving mass consumer engagement around our tentpole events and bespoke activations, on our own platforms and within our branded presence on partner platforms, ranging from YouTube to Snapchat and Twitter. We will combine data-driven innovation and our search expertise with our core strength of entertainment content in a one stop digital media shop for brands and agencies."
