Nickelodeon UK To Premiere 'Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library' On Friday 1st December 2017




Share it: @NickelodeonUK #MrLemoncellosLibrary

Nickelodeon UK & Ireland will premiere a new original TV movie, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, based on author Chris Grabenstein’s acclaimed children’s book of the same name, on Friday 1st December 2017 at 6:00pm. Nickelodeon stars Casey Simpson (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn) and Breanna Yde (Nickelodeon’s School of Rock) join Russell Roberts (The Twilight Saga: New Moon) and newcomers AJ Rivera and Klarke Pipkin in the fantastical adventure about a group of friends whose overnight stay in their town’s new high-tech library turns into a daring, dangerous adventure of escape. The book, originally published in 2013 by Random House Children’s Books, boasts a 109-week run on the New York Times Best-Seller list.

Art Streiber/Nickelodeon

World-renowned gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello (Russell Roberts) has built his latest creation--a new state-of-the-art library filled with whimsical and eccentric rooms, where hardcover books fly kids to shelves in the sky, and massive doors open into fantastical worlds. Kyle Keeley, Lemoncello’s biggest fan, is chosen to be one of the first to experience the fun, along with his best friend Akimi, a bookworm named Sierra (Klarke Pipkin), a goofball named Andrew Peckleman (A.J. Luis Rivera Jr.), his rival Charles Chiltington (Ty Nicolas Consiglio), and others. The kids must use their wits to complete riddles and collect clues that lead them out of this unique playground of imagination. When excitement turns to jeopardy, this world of wonder begins to spiral out of control as literary characters run amok and chaos ensues. It’s up to the kids to make everything right again or else they won’t be the only ones escaping.

Nickelodeon’s original TV movies are a key part of the network’s content mix, creating vehicles for Nickelodeon’s stars to be seen in new and different roles and stories. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library joins Nickelodeon’s original TV movie slate, which includes three upcoming original TV movies--Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie and Tiny Christmas, both set to premiere this fall and Blurt starring Henry Danger’s Jace Norman and internet sensation JoJo Siwa, scheduled to air early 2018.

Join in on the adventure by using #MrLemoncellosLibrary and following Nickelodeon UK on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for movie updates and sneak peeks.

Chris Grabenstein’s novels with Random House Children’s Books have more than one million copies in print and hundreds of weeks combined on the New York Times bestseller list. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library has spent over 100 weeks on the bestseller list, received nominations for 42 state award lists, and is published in 19 countries and in 19 languages throughout the world. Grabenstein's additional middle-grade novels include Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Olympics, The Island of Dr. Libris, Welcome to Wonderland: Home Sweet Motel, and Welcome to Wonderland: Beach Party Surf Monkey. Grabenstein's third Lemoncello Book, Lemoncello’s Great Library Race, was published on Tuesday 10th October 2017.

Jim Head, Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia serve as executive producers. Amy Sydorick serves as producer. The TV movie is written by Brian Jarvis & Jim Freeman and Alex Reid, and was directed by Scott McAboy (Splitting Adam).

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library made its world debut on Nickelodeon USA on Monday 9th October 2017, and is currently rolling out on Nickelodeon channels and programming blocks globally.

SLIMEFEST Is Coming To Nickelodeon - 5 Reasons You Won’t Want To Miss The Show! | Nickelodeon UK

All the messy mayhem of SLIMEFEST is headed for Nickelodeon UK & Ireland with coverage of the exciting slimy action from 2017’s shows!

Weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket to Nickelodeon's Slimefest 2017 at Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena, or want to relive the fun if you were there? Then tune in to Nickelodeon on Friday 3rd November 2017 at 5:00pm and 8:00pm to catch all the SLIME, MUSIC and MAYHEM!

With stars galore and slimy fun, there are so many reasons that you'll love the show – Check out just some of the biggest highlights ahead of it airing!:

Fun masters Jordan and Perri lead the show

SLIMEFEST wouldn't be complete without the most dynamic duo in show business hosting – so luckily, Diversity stars Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely signed up to return to the stage for another year! The pair certainly know how to hype up a crowd and are pretty handy with a slime sprayer too, as well as not being shy to face the green goo themselves.

Jordan and Perri love Slimefest just as much as fans, so let’s hope they agree to come back again for SLIMEFEST 2018!

Whole Lott-a hits

Nickelodeon always manages to pull in the biggest names for its events, and 2017 Slimefest is no exception, with Pixie Lott headlining.

The singer turned up the excitement by belting out some of her favourite hits, but you won’t want to miss seeing good old Pixie taking a sliming with a sense of humour, too!

Remember – your favourite stars could be singing on any TV show, but SLIMEFEST is the only one where you’ll see them hit by the goo gun at the same time!

Slime galore

Obviously, the biggest reason you’ll want to tune in to SLIMEFEST is a giveaway in the title – the slime!

Nickelodeon know that if there’s one thing that instantly improves any concert, it’s firing gunk at the stars while they’re on stage.

Not enough mess for you? Well, that’s not where the sliming ends, as the audience are also sprayed all the way throughout the show!

Catch up with The Vamps

Pixie wasn’t the only headline act at Slimefest 2017. She was in good company as The Vamps also took to the stage in one of the top slots.

When the band’s third album, Night & Day, knocked Ed Sheeran off the top of the UK album chart, it pretty much secured their megastar status.

Like Pixie, the boys were good sports about getting soaked with slime, so tune in on Friday to see how they reacted.

Top pop stars and celeb guests

You couldn’t move at Slimefest for all of the famous faces, so get ready for some serious celeb spotting when the programme airs.

Performers include JoJo Siwa, Professor Green, last year’s X Factor winner Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight, and hosts Jordan and Perri’s dance crew Diversity! Nickelodeon School of Rock stars Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado also made special appearances at SLIMEFEST!

There were plenty of other stars at the show too, including Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent, TV presenter Stacey Solomon, Hollyoaks star Chelsee Healey, and soap actor Ayden Callaghan. See how many you can count when you tune in on Friday!

Slimefest 2017 airs on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland on Friday, November 3 at 5pm and 8pm. Visit for more information.

Viewers can watch Nickelodeon on Sky, Virgin, TalkTalk, BT Vision, YouView, VUTV on Freeview and on UPC in the Republic of Ireland.

BURBANK, Calif.—Nov. 2, 2017—Nickelodeon today announced the voice cast of its all-new series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a reimagining that follows the band of brothers as they encounter new allies and villains and discover a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City. The 2D-animated series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo and Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil. The series is set to debut in 2018 on Nickelodeon.

“This incredible roster of voice actors provides a fresh take on these globally recognized characters, and they are going to bring this version of the Turtles to life in a whole new way,” said Chris Viscardi, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Animation. “We have reimagined the series to be filled with humor, loads of action and a dynamic look, and it’s packed with all new heroes, villains and cityscapes for the Turtles to explore.”

Pictured (L-R): Nickelodeon’s Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice cast; Kat Graham (April O’Neil), Josh Brener (Donatello),
Omar Miller (Raphael), Brandon Mychal Smith (Michelangelo) and Ben Schwartz (Leonardo).

The highly comedic voice cast shapes the team in a fresh way and breathes new life into the characters’ distinct personalities, including: Raphael, as the oldest and physically biggest brother, he is now the leader and his enthusiasm and bravado puts him front and center for most of their bizarre adventures; Leonardo, the self-professed ‘coolest’ brother possesses irreverent charm and a rebel heart; Donatello, an unflappable mechanical genius and tech wizard whose ninja skills are second only to his coding; Michelangelo, the youngest brother, an artist and awesome skateboarder with a wild colorful, and imaginative personality; and the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker who is always ready to join in the fun. Additionally, Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) joins the cast as Splinter, both father figure and sensei to the Turtles.

Veteran animation industry voice actor Rob Paulsen is voice directing the series. Paulsen most recently voiced Donatello in Nickelodeon’s CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and voiced Raphael in the 1987 original series. With over 2,000 half-hours of animation voice-over to his credit, Paulsen’s versatility is heard in many series.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the Turtles will encounter absurd new mutants and battle bizarre creatures all while enjoying their favorite slice of pizza. Tapping into mystic, ninja powers they never knew existed, the four brothers must learn to work together and navigate the perils of the modern age and hidden realms in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.

The new 26-episode series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer, Samurai Jack) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.

Andy Suriano is an artist, illustrator and performer, and an Emmy and Annie Award-winning character designer and storyboard artist. His past credits include: Star Wars: Clone Wars, The Fairly OddParents, Duck Dodgers, Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends, Disney’s Mickey Mouse shorts, Samurai Jack, and The Powerpuff Girls, among others.

Voice Talent Quotes:

Kat Graham (April O’Neil):

“I’ve watched TMNT since I was a little girl. I’m so proud to be playing the first African-American April O’Neil. What an incredible honor for me and milestone for this iconic cartoon. I’m excited for all the adventures the Turtles and I will have!”

Omar Miller (Raphael):

“I used to sing the TMNT theme song daily on the bus on my way to elementary school and Raphael was my favorite Turtle. To get to voice this fictional character who had such a giant positive impact on my childhood is an honor. And to boot, I'm being directed by the man who voiced Raphael in my childhood.”

Ben Schwartz (Leonardo):

"I have loved TMNT ever since I was a kid. I still have the action figures and the enormous desire to eat an entire pizza in one sitting."

Josh Brener (Donatello):

“I've loved Donatello since I was old enough to love things. Even though his color was purple and he just had a stick, he was always my favorite Turtle...possibly because time is a flat circle and I somehow knew I'd one day be lucky enough to voice him. I didn't know I'd be so lucky as to do it alongside the coolest, funniest, all-around greatest non-turtle human people! Turtle Power!”

Brandon Mychal Smith (Michelangelo):

“Being granted the honor of voicing my childhood superhero and growing up watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series made this opportunity that much more of a true dream come true. There is cool and then there’s this-becoming Michelangelo, which for me is absolutely out of this world,spectacularly, magnificently, groovy, cool with a splash of oooooo yeahhh!”

Eric Bauza (Splinter):

“For the past few years I’ve had the honor of voicing Tiger Claw, an original character to the TMNT universe. Now, the honor continues as I get to voice Splinter, in the brand-new series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I couldn’t be more thankful and proud to be a part of one of the most iconic shows in animation history!”
