First-Look At Nickelodeon's "I Wanna Be", Premiering This Summer On Nick USA

To celebrate Nickelodeon USA starting to premiere and show I Wanna Be (Working Title), Nickelodeon's brand-new adventure-filled docu-series hosted by the Carolina Panthers two-time Pro Bowl quarterback Cam Newton, this Summer, Sports Illustrated Kids has exclusively unveiled Nick USA's first I Wanna Be teaser trailer, just in time for Cam's debut on the biggest sports stage in the world, which you can watch in the super video below!:

I Wanna Be (20 episodes) will follow Cam as he takes real kids on the ride of their lives to help make their biggest (and wildest) dreams come true. The 20-episode series is slated to air in 2016 and will shoot during the NFL off seasons. In each episode Newton will step into the lives of two different kids and take them on a journey that will push them closer to fulfilling their dreams. From decorating award-winning cakes and landing a spot on a Broadway stage to becoming President's, fashion designers and circus performers, kids will be mentored by experts and supported by Newton as he cheers them on, and participates in the action, every step of the way!

"Time in the spotlight has made me realize the importance of creating positive messages to inspire the next generation. I'm very passionate about mentoring young people, and this show will be the perfect opportunity to help talented kids get the chance to pursue their dreams. And to be able to do it all on Nickelodeon – a network I grew up watching – is extremely exciting," said Newton.

Newton dazzled the focus groups that saw the pilot episode.
