ZJ SPARKLETON AND THE HAMSTER SHOW

BURBANK, Calif.–March 18, 2021–Nickelodeon is continuing to fuel its ever-expanding content slate with the greenlight of two new creator-driven 2D-animated series--ZJ Sparkleton (working title) for Kids 6-11 and The Hamster Show (working title) for preschoolers. Buddy comedy ZJ Sparkleton (26 half-hour episodes) follows creative vlogger Ruby and her goofy alien best friend ZJ Sparkleton as they film their daily mishaps and adventures around their town. The Hamster Show (26 half-hour episodes) centers on a motley crew of hamsters that work together to protect their owner, who they mistake as their King and beloved ruler of their elaborate tubed kingdom. Both ZJ Sparkleton and The Hamster Show are produced by Nelvana, a world-leading international producer, distributor and licensor of children’s animated and live-action content, and slated to premiere on Nickelodeon in the U.S. in 2022, with international markets to follow.

ZJ Sparkleton and The Hamster Show are great additions to Nickelodeon’s growing slate of new content because friendship, humor and relatable characters are at the core,” said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation. “The series creators, Brian Morante and Zach Smith, have a history of bringing unique stories to life at Nickelodeon and we can’t wait to dive in with our production partners at Nelvana on these originals.”

“Nelvana is excited to build upon our partnership with Nickelodeon and contribute to their massive animation pipeline with new IP for a global audience,” Pam Westman, President, Nelvana. “With lovable characters and hilarious storylines, ZJ Sparkleton and The Hamster Show are two titles that we look forward to adding to our production slate.”

In ZJ Sparkleton, quirky 10-year-old vlogger Ruby discovers her only video channel follower is a tail-zapping space alien from the planet Pudge named ZJ Sparkleton, and they quickly become best friends. Along with their friend Earl, a talking con-man squirrel, Ruby teaches ZJ about her version of Earth, while ZJ learns to control his unpredictable powers.  

In The Hamster Show, 8-year-old Harry is the proud owner of a crew of hamsters and the builder of their detailed and expansive tubed home. Little does Harry know that his furry friends are constantly watching him, believing that Harry is their King and they are his heroic protectors. Together, the hamsters explore their kingdom, comedically misunderstanding the human world and braving “royal missions,” such as saving King Harry from daily doom, granting his wishes and keeping his life running smoothly.

ZJ Sparkleton and The Hamster Show are taking their place alongside other series from Nickelodeon’s animated content pipeline--the largest in its history to ever be produced. Titles in the forthcoming slate include: Star Trek: Prodigy, Rugrats, Middlemost Post, Baby Shark’s Big Show!, The Smurfs, The Patrick Star Show, Big Nate, The Tiny Chef Show (working title) and more.

ZJ Sparkleton is created by Brian Morante (Penguins of Madagascar, Breadwinners, SpongeBob SquarePants). Mike Geiger (3 Amigonauts, Winston Steinburger and Sir Dudley Ding Dong) is the director and Lynne Warner (Corn & Peg, The Most Magnificent Thing) is the supervising producer for Nelvana. Kari Kim, Vice President, Animation Development, Nickelodeon; Claudia Spinelli, Senior Vice President, Animation Development, Nickelodeon; and Conrad Montgomery, Vice President, Current Series Animation, Nickelodeon, are overseeing production of the series for Nickelodeon.

The Hamster Show is created by Zach Smith (Baby Shark’s Big Show!). Jason Groh (Go Away, Unicorn!, Wishfart) is the director and Lynne Warner (Corn & Peg, The Most Magnificent Thing) is the supervising producer for Nelvana. Eryk Casemiro, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Preschool, is overseeing production of the series for Nickelodeon.

NICKELODEON BEGINS PRODUCTION ON NEW iCARLY SERIES 
FOR PARAMOUNT+

Laci Mosley and Jaidyn Triplett Join Cast Alongside Original Series Stars 
Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress


Share it: @Nickelodeon @iCarly @ParamountPlus #iCarly

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.–March 18, 2021–Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness have started production on a new original series based on the hit sitcom, iCarly, for Paramount+. The 13-episode season picks up nearly 10 years after the original show ended, and finds Carly Shay, the original influencer, and her friends navigating work, love and their family in their twenties. Production on the new iCarly series has commenced in Los Angeles and is slated to premiere on the service this summer.

“Being on the iCarly set has always felt like a second home to me and it’s so awesome to be back with my pals Jerry and Nathan,” said Miranda Cosgrove. “We served up spaghetti tacos over 10 years ago, and I can’t wait to show you what we’re cooking up next with Nickelodeon for Paramount+!”

The new iCarly series will feature two new cast members: Laci Mosley (Florida Girls) as Harper, Carly’s roommate and best friend; and Jaidyn Triplett (The Affair, See) as Millicent, Freddie’s snarky and social media-savvy stepdaughter. Mosley and Triplett will appear alongside returning original series stars, Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Jerry Trainor (Spencer) and Nathan Kress (Freddie).

Nickelodeon’s original iCarly series, which ran from 2007-2012, followed a group of best friends as they created a webcast for and about kids their age while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. During its initial run, iCarly became a pop-culture staple and regularly broke viewership records among audiences of all ages. The original iCarly series was created by Dan Schneider.

The new iCarly series is produced by Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Trinkets, PEN15). The pilot is written by Ali Schouten (Diary of a Future President, Champions, Merry Happy Whatever), who also serves as executive producer, and Jay Kogen (Nickelodeon’s School of Rock, The Simpsons, Frasier). Miranda Cosgrove also serves as executive producer, with Jerry Trainor and Alissa Vradenburg serving as producers. The pilot is directed and executive produced by Phill Lewis (One Day at a Time, The Neighborhood). 

Production of the new iCarly series for Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness is overseen by Shauna Phelan, Senior Vice President, Live-Action Scripted Content, and Zack Olin, Senior Vice President, Live Action.

Kogen exited the series last month. There are no plans to bring in a new co-shorunner, Nickelodeon President Brian Robbins told Deadline. “Ali is running the show, she is doing amazing work, and so is the cast,” he said. “We just started shooting the first episode this week. It’s really a joy to watch. The fans who you know are rabid for the show, watching the performance of iCarly repeats for streaming services, the social buzz created when we announced that the show was coming back, I think that the fans are going to love what they get.”


'iCarly' Revival: Carly Has a New BFF, Freddie Has a Kid and More Secrets Revealed (Exclusive)


The iCarly stars are spilling the tea on the upcoming Paramont+ revival!

Nickelodeon and Awesomeness have started production on the 13-episode season, which picks up nearly 10 years after the original show ended. The revival finds Miranda Cosgrove's Carly Shay, the original influencer, and her friends "navigating work, love and their family in their twenties."

ET spoke with Cosgrove, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor, where they shared what their characters have been up to since saying goodbye in 2012.

"The three of us got back together and it was kind of like riding a bike. It was like, 'We're back!'" Trainor expressed, with Cosgrove adding, "It feels kind of crazy. We did the first table read about a week or so ago and it was kind of insane. Like, just getting everybody back together again and it was really fun."

iCarly ran on Nickelodeon for six seasons from 2007 to 2012 and followed Cosgrove's Carly Shay as her internet show, iCarly, became a success. Trainor portrayed Carly's brother, Spencer, while Kress played her best friend, Freddie.

The three actors all agreed that they found it "easy" to pick up their characters after so many years. The trio is also adding some new faces to the gang. Laci Mosley stars as Carly's new best friend and roommate, Harper, while Jaidyn Triplett will be playing Freddie's snarky and social media-savvy stepdaughter.

"The cool part is what makes it different too is we have new characters that are coming," Kress divulged. "It's a lot of familiar faces, but there's new people involved who are going to change up the story a ton and will make it very interesting and I think somewhat unexpected."

"I have a kid [on the show] now, so that changes the dynamic a little bit," he continued. "In real life too…Yeah in two weeks I'll have two kids. So just kids everywhere."

"I have no kids," Trainor quipped, with Cosgrove adding, "Me either."

When fans last saw Carly and Freddie, the two shared a goodbye kiss in the series finale. But what's their relationship status in the revival?

"TBD! I don't know," teased Kress, adding, "I have no idea, and even if I did know, I wouldn't tell you. We gotta keep things spicy for the folks at home. Right, Miranda?"

"Yeah, let's keep things spicy," the actress replied, with Trainor adding, "Too juicy to say! I feel like there are a lot of secrets."

"I'll say the scripts are really funny, but I don't think anyone is expecting what we're doing," he continued. "I don't think a revival has been done quite this way."

The iCarly revival pilot is written by Ali Schouten, who also serves as executive producer, and Jay Kogen. Cosgrove also serves as executive producer, with Trainor and Alissa Vradenburg serving as producers. The pilot is directed by executive producer Phill Lewis and is slated to premiere this summer.

Jennette McCurdy was also part of the original series as Carly's other friend, Sam. McCurdy, though, is not expected to return for the revival, as she shared earlier this month that she's quit acting and said that she's "ashamed" of her career and past roles.

Mapping Planet Nickelodeon (Side Project)

Welcome to Mapping Planet Nickelodeon (working title), a little side project I've been wanting to start for a little while.


Nickelodeon has channels in nearly every country around the globe. Many of these channels are owned and operated separately, depending on viewers tastes in each country. Some of these channels are from a main pan-regional feed, which broadcasts the same schedule in lots of different countries, with localised dubs. And to make things even more complicated, some of these pan-regional feeds have sub-feeds, and even these can have sub-feeds of their own.

The main purpose of Mapping Planet Nickelodeon is to try and identify which channel uses which feed. At the moment, I'm posting the same news for each channel on the feed. It would help immensely if this project could identify all the channels that each use the feed, so I can condense the news into single posts.

If you have any information to contribute to the project, please feel free to let me know, either via the comments or via social media (using the links in the sidebar). Any information will be gratefully received!
