NEW YORK–May 12, 2016–Nickelodeon will transport preschoolers to the magical countryside of Teletubbyland in an all-new updated version of the iconic Teletubbies series, debuting on the Nick Jr. channel Monday, May 30, at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) with daily premieres every week day in June.

In the new Teletubbies TV series premiere, “Making Friends / Watering Can,” the Teletubbies greet the flowers, while the children in Tummy Tales make a friendship circle out of handprints. Po waters objects using a magic watering can so they grow and the Teletubbies celebrate with a splashy puddle dance.

The first two seasons (52 episodes) of the classic Teletubbies series will be available on NOGGIN beginning Thursday, May 26, with the remaining episodes in the title rolling out in the coming months. Currently available on iOS and Apple TV, Google Play, Android and Amazon, NOGGIN consistently ranks at the top of the charts in the Education and Kids categories on the Apple App Store.

Nickelodeon UK To Premiere "Hollywood Heights" On Friday 27th May 2016

Nickelodeon UK & Ireland have announced the exciting news in a new trailer that Nickelodeon UK & Ireland/HD will start to premiere and show the popular family drama series Hollywood Heights from Friday 27th May 2016!

Nick UK & Eire/HD will premiere each brand-new episode of Hollywood Heights every Friday at 9:00pm, and will encore each all-new episode Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 9:00pm.

A popstar crush. A secret talent. Romance and deceit. Fame and heartbreak. Success and secrets. Welcome to Hollywood Heights, where they put the DRAMA in family drama!

When Loren (Brittany Underwood), a smart, shy and independent school senior who has ambitions of being a songwriter, secretly sends her song lyrics to her celebrity crush, rock superstar Eddie Duran (Cody Longo). Loren's wildest dreams come true when she not only wins a songwriting competition sponsored by Eddie, but strikes up a friendship with her idol! When Loren gets thrown into the spotlight suddenly and meets her musical idol, nothing will ever be the same for anyone. Eddie sees beyond Loren's potential as a songwriter and gives her a first break as a singer, and when the truth about his less-than-faithful girlfriend Chloe (Melissa Ordway) is revealed, Eddie and Loren's friendship blossoms. However, the obstacles that come with life and fame become instantly apparent, but it's the strong bond between friends and family that help them all through.

Pictured: (standing, l-–r) Melissa (Ashley Holliday), Nora (Jama Williamson), Eddie (Cody Longo, on ledge), Chloe (Melissa Ordway), Kelly (Yara Martinez), Adam (Nick Krause) (sitting, l-r) Max (Carlos Ponce), Loren (Brittany Underwood), Tyler (Justin Wilczyniski), Traci (Shannon Kane), Jake (Brandon Bell)

Cody Longo as Eddie Duran, a 22-year-old rockstar who is often caught between the music and the business, but still holds onto traces of his youthful spark. He was engaged to model Chloe Carter, but he broke it off due to her constant lying. His mother, Katy Duran, was killed in a hit-and-run car accident.

Melissa Ordway as Chloe Carter, Eddie Duran's ex-fiancé, a model from Fresno (real name Cynthia Kowalski) who schemes to marry Eddie and get the "rockstar" lifestyle that she's always dreamed of. Eddie breaks things off when he discovers her affair with Tyler Rorke; she is determined to get Eddie back and tear down Loren Tate.

Jama Williamson as Nora Tate, Loren's Mom and #1 fan. She helps guide her daughter through the struggles of high school and a budding music career. As a single mom, Nora tries to stay as close to her daughter's life as possible, without smothering her creativity and spirit. Even while dealing with her own complicated career and love life, Loren is her first priority. She has a secret love life with Max Duran.

Carlos Ponce as Max Duran, Eddie's rocker dad who struggles to move on after his wife Katy's tragic and untimely death. Most of the time he and Eddie have a great relationship, even when he doesn't see eye-to-eye with the management surrounding his son. He opened a new nightclub, hoping it could be a new beginning for himself, leaving the fandom and fame to Eddie. Nora brings out the best in him and he enjoys her company.

Nick Krause as Adam, Loren and Melissa's indie-rocker friend. As well as being a great support system for Loren and her rapidly growing fame, he is Melissa's devoted and thoughtful boyfriend who loves her with all his heart.

Daphne Ashbrook as Jackie Kowalski, Chloe's Mother who is brought to L.A by Tyler to supposedly help Chloe, but she may just be a pawn in Tyler's game.

Brandon Bell as Jake Madsen, Eddie's type-A manager and friend who has overseen his career from the very beginning. His life tends to revolve around all things Eddie and the entertainment business, which leaves him little time to spend with his wife, Traci. He continuously battles to find a balance between the Hollywood lifestyle and his family life.

Shannon Kane as Traci Madsen, a successful graphic designer and Jake's soon to be ex-wife. She constantly needs to keep her husband's Hollywood lifestyle in check, and remind him that his personal life matters too. It's sometimes a struggle to keep his focus at home, especially when his attentions become even more divided by other interests especially since her father ended up in the hospital after a heart attack. She suspects Kelly and Jake did something while she was gone.

Grayson McCouch as Don Masters, a good-looking, successful surgeon, who also happens to be the father of Loren's high school nemesis, Adriana. He owns the private clinic where Nora and Ellie work together. He tends to mix business with pleasure.

Hunter King as Adriana Masters, a girl who is considered the popular and mean girl in school, who stops at nothing to make Loren's life miserable. She dates Melissa's brother, Phil, who helps take her mind off her issues with her father, Don. She believes that Eddie's song writing contest was rigged, and thinks that Loren does not deserve any of the fame and attention she has been receiving from both Eddie and the press after winning the competition. She also has a plan to work with Chloe to take down Loren forever. She is pregnant and wants to keep the baby.

Robert Adamson as Phil Sanders, a boy who has no problem breaking rules to make things go his way. His sister, Melissa, sees right through his troublemaking, but his mother sees him as the perfect model of a child. His constant law-breaking lands him in trouble with his boss, Colorado, as well as the L.A. Police. He is dating Adriana, got her pregnant and is now engaged to her.

Yara Martinez as Kelly, a girl who travels from New York to visit her best friend Traci, but develops an interest in the music business when she arrives. After demonstrating to Jake, who becomes her new boss, that she has talent in managing young stars, she goes about taking Loren's career into her own hands.

Brian Letscher as Gus Sanders, the head of the Sanders household. As the father to Melissa and Phil, he's got his hands full trying to keep the peace between everyone, while also hanging on to a secret that could disrupt his already tense home life.

Meredith Salenger as Lisa Sanders, Melissa and Phil's Mother who often spoils her trouble-making son, while keeping close tabs on her daughter. Keeping a harmonious home life proves to be difficult – especially when a part of her past threatens to come back to haunt them all.

Merrin Dungey as Ellie Moss, Nora's colleague at the clinic where she works. She's pleasant and funny when things are going well for her, but can become high strung and needy when she feels threatened or used.

Hollywood Heights is loosely based on the Mexican telenovela Alcanzar una estrella (To Reach a Star), executive produced by six-time Emmy Award-winner Jill Farren-Phelps, and is co-executive produced by Hisham Abed and Josh Griffith, who also served as head writer. The series is a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and Televisa, the Mexican production company which owns the rights to the original telenovela, and airs on Nick at Nite and TeenNick in the USA.

Nickelodeon UK To Premiere "Rufus" On Friday 27th May 2016

The online British and Irish TV guide website Digiguide is reporting the PAWsome news that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, will premiere the brand-new Nickelodeon Original Movie Rufus on Friday 27th May 2016 at 6:00pm!

Following the films debut, Nick UK & Eire/HD will encore the all-new Nick Flick Rufus on Monday 30th May 2016 at 11:00am and on Friday 3rd June 2016 at 11:00am, 4:31pm and 10:00pm.

Ever wondered what would happen if your Dog became a dude? Manny lives the tail in Rufus! In Nickelodeon's brand-new original television movie, Manny has moved to a new school, and is finding it hard to fit in. After wishing he had more friends, Manny finds a mysterious collar and puts it on his loyal dog, Rufus. Suddenly, Rufus is magically transformed into a real boy!

Manny's not sure what to do, so he enrolls Rufus in school. Quickly, Manny learns that having a dog-turned-dude by your side is pretty awesome, but it's no walk in the park, either. When the other students notice Rufus's silly dog antics - chasing squirrels, eating without utensils, asking for belly rubs, and catching soccer balls and flying discs with his mouth - he immediately earns school-wide pup-ularity. Manny's jealousy soon gets the better of him when his crush, Paige, takes a special interest in Rufus, but he eventually learns that a Dog's loyalty to his owner always comes first.

Rufus stars Jace Norman (Henry Danger, Splitting Adam) as Rufus, Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Paige, and Davis Cleveland (Shake It Up!) as Manny.

Nickelodeon And Kam Sang Co. Partner To Build New Orange County Nickelodeon Hotel In Garden Grove, California

Garden Grove in Orange County, California may soon become home to the next brand-new Nickelodeon Hotel in the USA, continuing the city's efforts to link its stretch of Harbor Boulevard with the Anaheim Resort District, reports The Orange County Register!

Earlier this week, the City Council unanimously agreed to enter into negotiations with developer Kam Sang Co. to build the Nickelodeon Resort Hotel - a 600-room, four-diamond resort on 10 acres with an expanded pool area.

Lagoon Pool at Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Details are still in the works, but both Kam Sang and city officials said it will be in the ballpark of the recently opened Great Wolf Lodge, in terms of construction costs, north of $100 million, and potential tax revenue, from $6 million to $8 million annually to the city.

Construction of the hotel could begin within 24 months, according to Kam Sang officials.

"We are actively looking at numerous opportunities to develop Nickelodeon Resorts and Hotels in the U.S. and abroad, such as the new property we have opening in Punta Cana in Dominican Republic this summer through a partnership with Karisma Hotels & Resorts," Nickelodeon officials said in a statement.

Nickelodeon currently has a hotel in Orlando, Florida called the Nickelodeon Suites Resort which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. However, the Nick-branded hotel will be closing on Tuesday 31st May 2016 to become the Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites & Waterpark following Nickelodeon and Urban Commons mutually agreeing to not extend the partnership.

The Garden Grove hotel would incorporate the Nickelodeon-brand to lure tourists while also being luxurious enough to bring in Anaheim Convention Center business people.

"We want to balance corporate travelers with Disney tourist travelers," said Phil Wolfgramm, the Senior Vice President (SVP) for Kam Sang Co. "It won't slap you in the face."

Kam Sang has tried to develop the property on Harbor Boulevard, next to the Sheraton Hotel, for about a decade, Wolfgramm said. It has gone through several iterations, including a water park scrapped once Great Wolf opened down the street.

The deal struck with Garden Grove on Tuesday requires Kam Sang, which is also developing the city's long-awaited Brookhurst Triangle mixed-use project, to pay the city for any environmental studies and for acquiring the Tamerlane Apartments that occupy the future hotel property.

Even though the apartments are privately owned, the city has for years had a deal allowing it to buy the land whenever it wants, said Greg Blodgett, Garden Grove's Senior Project Manager working on the Nickelodeon hotel.

The city can transfer that right to Kam Sang, Blodgett said.

Blodgett estimated that getting the land ready for construction - including buying the property, relocating tenants, demolishing buildings and performing environmental studies - could cost the developer upward of $25 million.

"It's a unique project and something we've been working on for a while," Blodgett said. "It has worldwide recognition that will help Garden Grove."

The hotel's conceptual plans are still in development and must be approved by Viacom before going public, Wolfgramm said.

The hotel would offer 15,000 to 30,000 square feet of meeting, retail and dining space, and 5,000 to 15,000 square feet of entertainment, according to city documents.

There would be an outdoor theater, and some recognition of the Nickelodeon brand - Disney hotels, for example, have mouse ears as door knobs.

Most of the rooms, though, would not be themed, unlike the Great Wolf, which themes all but its most basic rooms.

The family suites would likely have separate, themed children's areas, Wolfgramm said. A children's area could be designed after the iconic Nickelodeon original animated series SpongeBob SquarePants.

The pool area would include a lazy river.

If successful, the hotel would continue Garden Grove's attempt to charm visitors visiting nearby Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

The Great Wolf, a 600-suite resort and water park, opened earlier this year. The city is expected to soon announce another major hotel, with a convention center, across the street from where the Nickelodeon Resort Hotel would go.

"It's exciting," said Wolfgramm. "The city has done a good job positioning itself for their needs in the future."

Nickelodeon's "The Halo Effect" Honors Detroit Teen Christina Li In "Hello World", Premiering Friday 20th May At 8:30pm (ET/PT) On Nick USA

Original Nickelodeon USA Press Release:


Li Recognized for Exemplary Work to Increase Girls’ Participation in Computer Science

Nickelodeon Partners with Girls Who Code,, MIT Scratch and Afterschool Alliance
for Multi-Platform STEM and Coding Initiatives

Follow The HALO Effect on Twitter @NickelodeonHALO and Facebook #HALOEffectChallenge

NEW YORK-MAY 13, 2016-Extraordinary teen Christina Li uses her passion for technology to increase female participation in the field of computer science in an all-new episode of The HALO Effect, “Hello World,” premiering Friday, May 20, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The episode follows Li as she organizes and instructs a computer science camp for middle school girls in her Michigan school district.

Li’s interest in coding started in the third grade when she picked up a copy of HTML for Dummies and began building websites for fun. Falling in love with tech and being a natural, Li joined her school’s Robotics Club and participated in numerous summer tech programs to advance her learning. During a computer science summer class, she noticed that most of the students were males and there was only one other girl besides herself. Looking to close the gender gap in the tech world, Li created Hello World, a computer science day camp specifically for young girls. The camp aims to teach programing code, web development, app and game design and robotics through fun and immersive workshops. In recognition of her outstanding leadership and encouragement, Nickelodeon will award a $10,000 grant to Li’s camp.

In each episode of The HALO Effect, the profiled teen will issue a HALO Effect Challenge,” a call-to-action encouraging inspired viewers to participate in their cause and join the HALO movement. As part of Li’s “HALO Effect Challenge,” she is encouraging everyone to post a photo of their best emoji face or share a screenshot of them completing three levels of a coding game using #HALOEffectChallenge. For more information on Li and her challenge, viewers can visit

Continuing its commitment to build awareness around STEM education and coding with kids, Nickelodeon is working with organizations like Girls Who Code,, MIT Scratch and Afterschool Alliance. Along with the coding-themed HALO Effect premiere, the network is supporting its efforts with a brand-new hour-long episode of Game Shakers “Revenge @ Tech Fest,” airing Saturday, May 21, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Produced in partnership with Girls Who Code, the Game Shakers enlist the help of Girls Who Code to defeat a mysterious creature seeking vengeance at Tech Fest. The special features two members of an LA-based Girls Who Code club as extras. Additionally, Nickelodeon is launching a new game, “Code a Character,” (May 16) on, a new site where kids can play Nickelodeon-themed coding games and learn more about the importance of computer science.

The HALO Effect launched in 2013 as a year-round initiative recognizing one deserving teen every month for their work to help and lead others in their community. The initiative was built upon Nickelodeon’s HALO Awards, an annual concert event honoring young community leaders with a grant for their organization and scholarship funds. To date, more than 50 teens across the country have been honored and have received more than $400,000 in grants to fund their non-profit organizations.

The HALO Effect series expands Nickelodeon’s ongoing commitment to the HALO movement by giving an in-depth look into the inspirational stories of teens who are eager to share the issues and projects important to them and excited to engage others to achieve an impact. The monthly series is hosted by Sydney Park (Instant Mom) and executive produced by Nick Cannon and NCredible Entertainment, as well as Morgan Spurlock, Richard Arlook, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin and Ethan Goldman of Warrior Poets.

Nickelodeon, now in its 37th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.
