Nickelodeon UK to Make Super Slimy Announcement on Wednesday 6th February 2019

Nickelodeon UK & Ireland have released in a post on their official Instagram page that the number one network for kids will be announcing some super slimy news on Wednesday 6th February 2019!

What’s up SLIME FANS?! We’ve got a super SLIMY announcement coming in just 2 DAYS. Can you guess what it is? 馃挌

Although unconfirmed, its thought that the announcement will be for SLIMEFEST 2019, Nickelodeon's fourth annual Slimefest - the slimiest music festival for kids - to be held in the UK!

The announcement could also be for Nickelodeon's 2019 Kids' Choice Awards, set to take place in March 2019, or for the upcoming Nickelodeon Big Base Camp, a brand-new mega immersive event that will make kids stars of the show which will launch at secret London location during Summer 2019!

What do you think Nickelodeon's super slimy news will be be? Let me know in the comments!

Nickelodeon May Be Developing New Sketch Comedy Show

On the heels of new Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins revealing that he would like to bring back Nickelodeon's landmark '90s sketch comedy series All That, it sounds like Nickelodeon may be in the midst of developing a brand-new sketch show!

Showfax is reporting that Nickelodeon held two casting sessions on Saturday, January 26, 2019, under the product name "Nickelodeon Comedy Talent Search".

The casting calls, overseen by casting director Tiffany Mak, who has previously served as a casting assistant on the Nickelodeon TV movies Gym Teacher: The Movie and Spectacular! as well as providing casting services for shows such as Kyle XY, Smallville, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, The L Word and Bionic Woman, were looking to fill four roles on the project: Jamie & Parker (Episodics) and Kelly & Kyle (Sketch Callbacks, Episodics).

Of course, it may mean something totally unrelated, as Nickelodeon seeks new talent all the time, however, what makes these casting calls stand out is that they mention "Sketch Callbacks" and "Episodics", which indicate that Nick are looking for cast members to feature in more than one episode of a show.

It also doesn't mean that the casting call is for a currently unannounced project. Kids media brand and Viacom are currently developing Skoogle, a kids sketch comedy show created by and starring Nickelodeon alum Kenan Thompson (All That, Kenan & Kel, Good Burger, Saturday Night Live), for Nickelodeon.

Following the casting calls, a raft of videos featuring the audition tapes of some of the actors hoping to become Nickelodeon's next big star have appeared on Vimeo, including the actors below:

'Peppa Pig' Lights Up the Globe with Chinese New Year Specials

Peppa is celebrating the Lunar New Year with all of her friends!

The Chinese New Year falls on Tuesday, February 5 this year, and people all over the world will celebrate the start of the Year of the Pig. And if you're making a list of the best pigs of all time, there is one whose pluck and love of muddy puddles makes her rise to the top: Peppa Pig! Which is why it's so exciting that Nickelodeon has announced that, this year, it will debut a brand-new episode of Peppa Pig about Lunar New Year.

It's the Year of the Pig, and Madame Gazelle teaches the children in Peppa's playgroup about Chinese New Year! The group celebrates with lanterns, fireworks and dragon dances, and makes a wonderful dragon costume. Together they enjoy celebrating the traditions of a different culture as they work together to create the decorations. And a new 'The Panda Twins' story, airing in conjunction with the Chinese New Year premiere, introduces two new characters - Peggi and Pandora, the twin daughters of Police Officer Panda.

Official episode description for "Chinese New Year":

"For the Chinese New Year, Madame Gazelle teaches the children about Chinese traditions - sweeping out the old year and the lucky colour red - before getting them to make a dragon costume to parade up the hill to watch the firework display." (S6 Ep 2)

Official episode description for "The Panda Twins":

"PC Panda brings his twin daughters Peggi and Pandora to the playgroup. Peppa discovers that they love puzzles and solving mysteries just like their dad." (S6 Ep 1)

In addition to these timely and festive new stories, Peppa and Suzy Sheep decide to start a Secret Club, where they will go on secret missions together; Madame Gazelle hosts Talent Day in playgroup; and Peppa and her little brother George get to gaze at the shining stars with Mummy and Daddy Pig through a telescope!

Check out a oink-tastic sneak-peek from the all-new episode here on! In the super preview, the kids take up musical instruments and decide which adult will lead the dragon dance.

The new episode of Peppa Pig will premiere on Nickelodeon USA on Monday, February 4 at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT. The special will encore on Tuesday, February 5 at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT.

International airdates:

Nick Jr. UK & Ireland: Tuesday 5th February 2019
Channel 5 Milkshake (UK): Tuesday 5th February 2019 at 7:30am
Nickelodeon South East Asia: Tuesday 5th February 2019 at 8:00am (as part of the channels Luna New Year highlights)
CLAN Spain - Tuesday 5th February 2019 at 9:05 and 17:00.
Rai Yoyo Italy - Tuesday 5th February 2019 at 13:55, 16;40 & 18:00.

This isn't Peppa Pig's only experience with the Chinese New Year. She'll also be starring in a feature-length movie about the holiday that will be released in China on February 5, co-produced Entertainment One (eOne) and China’s Alibaba Pictures. This makes sense, because Peppa has a huge fan base in China, and, well, it is the Year of the Pig. The full-length movie, which contains live action and brand new animated content, will see Peppa Pig kick off the Year of the Pig in China, and marks her big screen debut in cinemas throughout China. Limited-edition panda-themed merchandise will be released exclusively through Ali Fish, the licensing and entertainment business unit under Alibaba Pictures. Fun fact: The Panda twins in China will be named "Jiaozi," or "dumpling," and "Tang yuan," or "glutinous rice ball," after some popular Chinese New Year treats. Yum!

Update (2/1) - STXfilms is reteaming with Alibaba Pictures for U.S. distribution rights to Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year, a feature film based on the beloved cartoon franchise! The film opens in China on February 5, in time for the first day of Chinese New Year and the first day of the Chinese zodiac’s Year of the Pig. At the same time, STX is planning to release the English-subtitled version in 65 theaters across 32 U.S. markets! Click here for full info!

Peppa Pig made a strong broadcast debut in China in June 2015 on national broadcaster, CCTV and is now available on multiple leading VOD platforms including Youku, IQIYi and Tencent, where the series has accumulated over 45 billion cumulative views.

Peppa Pig airs on Nick Jr. and Viacom’s Channel 5 Milkshake in the U.K., and on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels globally.

Peppa Pig is created by Neville Astley and Mark Baker and produced by Astley Baker Davies Ltd and Entertainment One (eOne). The animated preschool show is one of eOne’s key properties. In 2017, it announced that 117 new episodes were entering production, which will start airing in 2019 and take the total episode count to 381.

Starring a family of animated pigs who play and learn together, Peppa Pig has been translated into more than 40 languages and broadcast in 180-plus territories. In 2017, it made US$1.2 billion in licensing and merchandising revenue.

Double Dare at Super Bowl is a 45-minute competition special, pitting two teams of NFL athletes, Nickelodeon stars and real kids against one another in a series of exciting, football-themed trivia questions and messy physical challenges. Hosted by Liza Koshy and featuring color commentary from Marc Summers, the teams will include NFL athletes Drew Brees and Russell Wilson, as well as Nickelodeon stars Scarlett Spencer and Dallas Dupree Young (Cousins for Life). The special will be taped on the PLAY FOOTBALL field at the Super Bowl Experience.

Double Dare!

If you don’t recognize the man in the above photo, you are likely not a millennial. That would be Marc Summers, the host of 1990s Nickelodeon game show Double Dare (and also the host of Food Network’s Unwrapped). Nickelodeon is doing a Double Dare at the Super Bowl special, which will tape at the Super Bowl Experience on Thursday and air on Sunday and features Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. During Opening Night, the Double Dare team roamed the floor, with a kid correspondent who had players throw mini footballs into a helmet perched on top of his head or at a Velcro sandwich board.


Also, from the Associated Press via the Chicago Sun-Times:

Many Rams were able to break away from the throngs of onlookers and pretend media on the floor to return to their childhoods. Marcus Peters and Dante Fowler Jr., walked onto a makeshift stage Monday night and played a tossing game for the Nickelodeon show “Double Dare.”

It was a quick respite for the Los Angeles Rams defensive duo, and cornerback Peters appeared to beat linebacker Fowler in the game. Then they were back into the scrum of microphones and TV cameras.

As for the Patriots, well, the lineup was short.

“We’re having them do physical challenges,” said Marc Summers, the long-time host of the program. “But we’re not getting the Patriots to come over. New England has been here many times and they are confident and are a little over this (scene). The Rams are having the time of their lives and enjoying participating in everything.”

A few minutes later, Patriots placekicker Stephen Gostkowski might have invited the wrath of his coach by actually taking part in one of Summers’ activities, a mini-basketball challenge. Talk about being unafraid of a double dare.
