Interview With The Stars Of Nickelodeon's "Game Shakers"

To celebrate Nickelodeon USA starting to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new original comedy series "Game Shakers" from Saturday 12th September 2015 at 8:30pm ET/PT, the Electronic Urban Report (EUR) recently met the stars of Nick's all-new sitcom to talk about their new show, which you can read in the fantastic interview below!:
Kel Mitchell on His New Live Action Series 'Game Shakers' on Nickelodeon.

*Nickelodeon's new live action series "Game Shakers" centers on two 12 –year old girls, Babe and Kenzie, who create the mobile game Sky Whale for their science project.

After creating the most popular app of the year, Babe and Kenzie use their profits, to start "Game Shakers," a super cool gaming company in Brooklyn, New York.

Not realizing they illegally sampled a song in their game from superstar rapper Double G, they decide to make the rap star their business partner and hire his son Triple G as a game consultant.

"Game Shakers" stars Cree Cicchino as Babe, Madisyn Shipman as Kenzie, Benjamin "Lil P-NUT" Flores Jr. as Triple G, Thomas Kuc as Hudson and Kel Mitchell as Double G.

EUR associate H'erica Thompson was on the scene to meet the cast.

EUR: Tell us about your characters on "Game Shakers."

KEL MITCHELL: I play this over the top physical comedic hip hop mogul. Imagine Diddy and Dr. Dre and then put some of my characters like Ed from Good Burger or Coach Kreeton from All That.

BENJAMIN "LIL P-NUT" FLORES JR: He's a lot like me we both have a lot of swag and he's very cool. He's the son of a rapper. He's rich but wants to hang out with kids his own age. I get to fly jets and break computers.

THOMAS KUC: My character Hudson is silly, friendly and everyone's friend. I get to be a reggae potato. Everyone should watch our show its fun and kids can learn and have the games and music on our show.

CREE CICCHINO: (smiling) Babe is a really strong New York character. She leads the group. She's fun and clever.

MADISYN SHIPMAN: (laughing) Kenzie is an intelligent and social girl with no filter and she gets straight to the point.

EUR: Are there any similarities between you and the characters you play on "Game Shakers?"

KEL MITCHELL: (laughing) Yeah, times a hundred. I think that if you take me and how I'm into music. I love music I'm always dancing. My wife tells me I have dance fever. I think that's why it's a dream role to play because I can just go over the top with it.

BENJAMIN "LIL P-NUT" FLORES JR: Yes, I have a lot of swag, good looks and I know how to dress.

THOMAS KUC: I make jokes like him but I'm not really like him because my character Hudson is an airhead.

CREE CICCHINO: I am similar because I'm from New York. I represent the Queens. Whoop whoop. I don't get into as much trouble as my character.

MADISYN SHIPMAN: I am like the same person. I'm a super nerd. Everyone has a quirky side. Game Shakers premiers on Sat 12th at 8:30. It's not a school night so watch.

EUR: What's it like working with Kel Mitchell?

BENJAMIN "LIL P-NUT" FLORES: I am the biggest [Kenan & Kel] fan. Working with him is a dream come true.

THOMAS KUC: It's awesome. Hello, [Kenan & Kel].

CREE CICCHINO: It's so much fun, he helps us on set and we learn a lot from him.

MADISYN SHIPMAN: He's a legend. We call him Uncle Kel.

EUR: What's it like to be working back with the Nickelodeon family?

KEL MITCHELL: To be able to do this again and work with Dan Schneider who I've worked with many times over the years is just awesome. I get to improv, ad lib and have fun with these characters. It's going to be an awesome show.

EUR: You have been doing standup comedy. Has that help prepare you for this show?

KEL MITCHELL: Definitely, I get to talk to the kids and let them know now. I'm like the older one on set so I'm Uncle Kel. I get to give them advice now.

EUR: Why should we watch Nickelodeon's "Game Shakers?"

KEL MITCHELL: The show has a cool app called Sky Whale that you can download in real life. The kids can see the games on the show and download them. There's never been a show that I've seen. The music on the show is great. I'm really doing music and performances. I watched Chris Brown for an hour to get my dances right. It's fun. You'll enjoy it.

"Game Shakers" debuts September 12 on Nickelodeon. Click HERE for more info.

Interview With "Shimmer And Shine" Star Isabella Crovetti-Cramp

To celebrate Nickelodeon USA and Nick Jr. USA starting to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new animated preschool series "Shimmer and Shine" on Monday 24th August 2015 at 7:30pm (ET/PT), M Magazine recently unveiled a fantastic interview with Isabella Crovetti-Cramp, who provides the voice of 'Shine' in Nick's all-new preschool show, which you can read below!

In her interview, Isabella spills lots of fun details about her audition, what fans can expect when they tune in, and what wishes SHE would make if she met a genie!:

This August Nickelodeon has a brand new show on the way called Shimmer & Shine. The series stars actresses Eva Bella and Isabella Crovetti-Cramp as the title characters, and as you can already tell from the preview episode available on iTunes and it's going to be quite the fun series!

M spoke with Isabella about her role as Shine in the show, and she spilled lots of fun details about her audition, what fans can expect when they tune in, and what wishes SHE would make if she met a genie!

Click through the slides to see all of Isabella's big reveals, and let us know if you plan on tuning in when Shimmer & Shine arrives next month!

Is it a dream come true voicing a Nickelodeon character who can grant wishes to her human BFF along with her twin sis?

"It is a dream come true to be the voice of Shine. As soon as I read the script I knew I had to be Shine and be a Genie who grants wishes! My mom and I worked on who Shine was and the more Shine came to life the more I knew I wanted to voice her. For the audition I was supposed to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I saw Shine being silly and instead of singing the song she would want to rap it. So I asked Farnaz after I sang, if I could rap the song. My rap got a huge laugh at the audition."

What can viewers expect from the first season of this seriously fun show?

"Viewers can expect to see the beautiful world of Shimmer and Shine. It truly is gorgeous. The show is totally funny, so the viewers can expect to laugh a lot. We grant Leah a lot of wishes, so the viewers get to see all the funny situations we get ourselves into while trying to help Leah out. But most importantly they will get to see the great friendship between all the characters on the show."

Do you have your fingers crossed for any specific guest stars to lend their voices to characters in upcoming episodes?

"I worked with Jennifer Lawrence on a movie recently, so I would love the opportunity to work with her again. Also I would love to work with Katy Perry and maybe sing on the show with her."

If you could make three wishes to a genie, what would they be?

"If I had three wishes I would wish for the end of world hunger and poverty. I would wish for everyone in the world to get along. I would wish to keep my family and friends safe and happy all the time!"

Your best friends are on the way! Shimmer and Shine is a preschool show about twin genies and their magical adventures with their best friend Leah. (L-R) Leah, Shimmer and Shine on Nickelodeon. Art: Nickelodeon©2015 Viacom, International, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
