Nickelodeon UK To Premiere "School Of Rock" On Friday 9th September 2016

The online British and Irish TV guide website Radio Times is reporting the exciting news that Nickelodeon UK & Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, will start to premiere and show School of Rock, Nickelodeon's brand-new live-action musical comedy series inspired by the hit movie of the same name, from Friday 9th September 2016 at 7:00pm!

The gifted students of William B. Travis Prep School are in for the lesson of a lifetime in Nick's all-new show, School of Rock!

When their teacher suffers an unfortunate skateboarding spill, Mr. Finn, a down-on-his-luck musician, steps in. Little do the group of overachieving rule-abiding students know - their new substitute actually rocks!

With their musical talents combined, this class of classically-trained musicians forms a band complete with headbanging beats and face-melting solos. But if they want to live the rock star life, they'll have to band together, take risks and rock out to reach new heights all whilst keeping the whole thing a secret.

Throughout the school year, these middle-school classmates find themselves navigating relationships, discovering their unknown talents and learning lessons on loyalty and friendships. With Mr. Finn's help, they'll discover that working together isn't just cool, it rocks!

In the series premiere of School of Rock, "Come Together", the class are introduced to their substitute teacher Mr. Finn, who quickly gives his students nicknames!

School of Rock stars Lance Lim (Growing Up Fisher) as Zack, Aidan Miner (Nickelodeon Creative Lab's Legendary Dudas (formally Homeroom)) as Lawrence, Ricardo Hurtado as Freddy, Jade Pettyjohn (Henry Danger) as Summer, Breanna Yde (The Haunted Hathaways) as Tomika, and Tony Cavalero (Splitting Adam) as Mr. Dewey Finn.

The series features guest appearances from Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy, Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)), Kendall Schmidt (Big Time Rush) and Kira Kosarin (The Thundermans). Episodes will include musical performances by the cast covering hits "What I Like About You" (The Romantics), "Lips Are Movin" (Meghan Trainor), "The Kids Are All Right" (The Who), "We're Not Gonna Take It" (Twisted Sister), "Shut Up and Dance" (WALK THE MOON), "Heart Attack" (Demi Lovato) and more.
