Nickelodeon's "Nella The Princess Knight" To Showcase Talents Of Dutchess, NY 12-Year-Old

Courtesy of an animated princess who doesn’t back down from challenges worthy of a knight, 12-year-old Akira Golz of Dutchess County, New York is set to reach more than 90 million television viewers beginning Monday morning!

Golz provides the voice of Nella in Nickelodeon's brand-new animated preschool series, Nella the Princess Knight, debuting Monday, Feb. 6, at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nick USA. You can watch an episode now at and on the Nick Jr. App.

“It’s really exciting,” said Golz, a Broadway veteran who also sings in the cartoon. “I love Nella so dearly. And, I can’t wait to watch it.”

Nella is an unconventional 8-year-old who possesses the royal qualities of a princess, like compassion and grace, while also embodying the courage and determination of a brave knight.

Golz’s journey to Nella’s kingdom can be traced to when she was 5-years-old and attending Angie’s Gymnastics in Dutchess. The instructor told Rutledge repeatedly that Golz, while waiting her turn to participate, would sing and dance.

The instructor asked Rutledge if she ever considered acting auditions for Golz. Rutledge eventually contacted two modeling agencies, heard back from one and Golz began modeling.

That led to acting auditions and appearances in a range of print and television ads for, among others, Honda and Olive Garden. Golz’s voice has also been heard on Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer and Peter Rabbit. From Sept. 1, 2015 to Jan. 1, 2017, she appeared on Broadway in Matilda.

Golz’s mother, Wyonna Rutledge, said she is experiencing pride and joy over her daughter’s latest theatrical accomplishment. Nickleodeon and Rutledge declined to say where in Dutchess the family lives.

“We didn’t think it would get to this point,” said Rutledge, whose husband, John Golz, is a former IBM employee who now works for GlobalFoundries. “You hope that it happens.”

Golz has a 17-year-old brother, and Rutledge admitted that her daughter's success has left an impact on the family’s day-to-day routine.

“Everyone makes the sacrifices for things like this,” Rutledge said.

Golz and Rutledge stayed in New Jersey while the young actress appeared on Broadway and Golz was home-schooled. She continues to record for episodes of Nella, but with a flexible schedule that has allowed her to return home and to her seventh-grade class in Dutchess.

Following its U.S. launch, Nella the Princess Knight in the spring will debut internationally, including on Nick Jr. UK & Ireland in May 2017.

Asked about her love of performing, Golz said, “something about it fills my heart with joy. I just love it so much. I don’t know how to explain it. I just feel excited when I perform and I don’t get that from anything else I do.”

UPDATE: Nickelodeon's "Mutt & Stuff" NOT Cancelled

IMPORTANT UPDATE (3/23): Dave Rogers, the Vice President (VP) of Digital for Cesar's Way, has confirmed to the Fans of Nick Jr, Disney Junior or PBS Kids Shows Facebook page that Mutt & Stuff is currently on production hiatus and has NOT being canceled. Dave Rogers also mentioned that the show will be back soon!

Calvin Millan, the star of Nickelodeon's popular preschool series Mutt & Stuff, has announced the unfortunate news to a fan on Instagram that Mutt & Stuff is wrapping production, with Nickelodeon USA planning to air the series finale later this year.

Cesar Millan, Calvin Millan and Stuff, stars of Nickelodeon's live-action preschool series, Mutt & Stuff.

Calvin reassured fans that it was Sid & Marty Krofft's decision to end the show after 73 episodes over two seasons, so that they could concentrate on the production on their Sigmund and the Sea Monsters reboot, which was recently picked up by Amazon Studios, and that the production schedules for both shows didn't reflect on one another.

Set in a unique school for dogs, Mutt & Stuff stars Calvin Millan and his dad, Cesar, star of Cesar 911 and original star of Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, interacting with a cast of both real Dogs and puppets. With the help of 15 playful puppies and charismatic puppets, Calvin educates preschoolers on how to train and guide their dogs, as well as showcase the friendship and loyalty that puppies can provide. The series has a social-emotional curriculum that helps preschoolers identify and manage emotions, build interpersonal awareness and develop social skills.

Nickelodeon ordered 13 additional episodes of the series ahead of the shows second season premiere on Friday 19th August 2016.

Mutt & Stuff is created and executive produced by Sid & Marty Krofft (H.R. Pufnstuf, Land Of The Lost), along with Bradley Zweig (Yo Gabba Gabba!, Wallykazam!). Cesar Millan also serves as executive producer.

"Game Shakers" Star Madisyn Shipman Wants Girls To Know It’s Cool To Code

Nickelodeon's hit sitcom Game Shakers is changing the game!

The Nickelodeon live-action comedy series created by prolific kids show producer Dan Schneider (Henry Danger, Good Burger, Sam & Cat, iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, The Amanda Show, Zoey 101, Kenan & Kel, All That, What I Like About You) is doing something different than any show that’s come before it: making it cool for girls to code.

The series follows two 12 year-old girls who start a company together after inventing an insanely addictive game featuring about a donut-eating Narwhal. Madisyn Shipman plays Kenzie Bell, a lovably nerdy techie whose brains and coding skills bring the game to life.

During an interview with The Huffington Post on Build Series Wednesday, Shipman opened up about the importance of playing a teenager who succeeds in math and science and what she hopes to learn from her character.

“This is the first Nickelodeon show that revolves around girl power and girls who code,” Shipman said. “Knowing that this is inspiring so many young girls and boys to come out of their comfort zone and say, ‘I’m a coder. I’m cool.’ ... It’s just awesome.”

According to Girls Who Code, an organization that aims to empower young women through technology, the biggest decline of interest in computer science among girls happens between the ages of 13-17, which is right around the age of Shipman’s character. Women continue to be underrepresented in STEM fields ― science, technology, engineering, and mathematics ― and Game Shakers is doing its part to encourage young girls to reach their potential.

Shipman, for one, is taking these lessons and applying them to her own life. Though she’s busy with acting projects and an exciting music career on the horizon, the 14-year-old aspires to be a neurosurgeon one day. In the meantime, however, she’s looking forward to picking up a few coding tips from Kenzie.

“I’m hoping they [the game coders] will teach me a few things,” she said. That way, Kenzie and I would have an even better bond and it would make us even more similar.”

During the interview, Madisyn spilled some exciting news, including the cast will be returning to the studio to start shooting Game Shakers season three in June 2017, and will be taking part in a exciting project in April 2017! Madisyn also reveals how she got into acting, that her favorite Nickelodeon show growing up was Zoey 101, that she hopes Erin Sanders, who portrayed 'Quinn Pensky' on Zoey 101, will guest star as her characters mother on a future episode of Game Shakers, what its like to work with Nickelodeon legend Kel Mitchell (Double G), and that some of the stars of Dan's previous shows, including Ariana Grande from Victorious and Sam & Cat, have visited the set of Game Shakers!
