Nicktoons UK to Air 'Middlemost Post' Shorts from Monday 16th August 2021

Nicktoons UK & Ireland will be giving viewers a first look at Middlemost Post by airing a series of shorts inspired by Nickelodeon's brand new animated series weekdays at 8:45am starting Monday 16th August 2021! Each short will replay the same day at 4:15pm.


Below is a list of the Middlemost Post - Shorts set to air on Nicktoons this summer:

Monday 16th August 2021 at 8:45am - Challenges: Parker, Angus, and Russell become obsessed with doing challenges.

Monday 16th August 2021 at 8:50am - Unboxing: When Parker receives a package for the first time, the cloud decides not to open it.

Tuesday 17th August 2021 at 8:45am - DIY: Parker, Russell, and Angus make a new friend.

Wednesday 18th August 2021 at 8:45am - Travel Brochure: Lily tells the audience the Top Things to Do on Mt. Middlemost.

Thursday 19th August 2021 at 8:45am - Welcome: Parker takes a new resident on a whirlwind tour around the mountain.

Marking Nickelodeon’s first original animated series in five years, Middlemost Post hails from SpongeBob SquarePants’ alum John Trabbic III and follows a former rain cloud, a brawny mailman and their magical pet walrus as they deliver packages to the unusual inhabitants of Mount Middlemost. The series combines quirky characters with hilarious adventures and unwavering friendship.

The Middlemost Post voice cast includes Becky Robinson (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts) as Parker J. Cloud, an exuberant, relentlessly kind, overly eager, and most of all, pliable cloud who’s desire is to spread cheer; John DiMaggio (Futurama) as Angus Roy Shackelton, Parker’s boss and proprietor of the Middlemost Post; Kiren (Raising Hope) as Lily, Parker’s best friend and master inventor;  Colton Dunn (Superstore) as Mayor Peeve, the petty Mayor of the city of Somewhere locked in a petty, one-sided feud with Angus; and Johnny Pemberton (In the Loop) as Ryan, Mayor Peeve’s loyal assistant.

Middlemost Post is created and co-executive produced by John Trabbic III. Dave Johnson serves as co-executive producer and story editor for Middlemost Post, with production overseen by Kelley Gardner, Vice President, Current Series, Animation, Nickelodeon.

Middlemost Post made its world premiere on Nickelodeon USA on July 9, and will debut on Nicktoons in the U.K. and Ireland during Autumn 2021. Leading up to its world premiere, Nick USA aired the Middlemost Post shorts as part of the network's Nick Shorts Showcase feature, which also includes shorts inspired by It's Pony and The Casagrandes.

Middlemost Post captures everything we look for in a new series--an imaginative and truly unique world, lovable characters who care deeply about each other and big comedic moments to drive the story,” said Ramsey Naito, Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon Animation. “The series is created by our very own John Trabbic, with writing partner Dave Johnson, and we can’t wait to bring to life the characters and places in this artist-driven series for our global audience.”

“This show, when [Trabbic] first pitched it to us, just was so unique,” Naito said in a separate statement. “It had all the qualities we look for. It was character driven. It had an ensemble that illustrated a really comedic relationship, with a backdrop that was fun and exciting. [And] it really feels original.”

“It’s a chance for us to just let our imaginations go wild,” Trabbic says.

Adds Johnson: “Parker is just a kid who’s learning life, but he [wears his] emotions on his sleeve, and because he’s a cloud, he’s pliable and can transform.”

Middlemost Post's greenlight comes on the heels of recent announcements for Big Nate, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, The Patrick Star Show and a third season of The Casagrandes. The original series exemplifies Nickelodeon’s commitment to bringing fresh innovative content to kids and families around the world.

Nickelodeon Renews Global Hit 'Spyders' for Seasons 3 and 4

NICKELODEON’S HIT LIVE ACTION SERIES “SPYDERS” BEGINS FILMING SEASONS 3 AND 4

Credit: Noy Dekel.

NEW YORK/TEL AVIV–JULY 27, 2021–Nickelodeon today announced that its hit international original series, Spyders, started filming seasons 3 and 4 following the show’s worldwide success.

Through its first two seasons, Spyders has delivered strong performances, airing in key Nickelodeon international markets in over 130 countries, including the UK, Australia, Spain, Brazil, Mexico the Netherlands and more. Upon its 2020 debut in Israel, the series became the most successful kids show on Israeli cable network HOT’s TeenNick channel. Around the world, season one launched with stellar results, outperforming slot averages in most key markets. The second season performed even stronger, resulting in a pick-up of two additional seasons, currently in production.

This series represents a breakthrough in the Israeli television industry, becoming the first original co-production between Nickelodeon International and Israeli production company "Ananey Studios", a division of ViacomCBS. Through a unique collaboration with Israeli cable network HOT and Nickelodeon, "Ananey Studios" worked with both partners from Spyders’ conception to adapt the show to appeal to Israeli and international markets.

Spyders follows Daniel (16), Nikki (15) and Tommy (12) who discover their parents, Anna and Noah Fisher, are highly skilled undercover agents who work for ECCO (Environmental Counter Crime Organization) and are tasked with fighting criminals who endanger nature or the environment. In previous seasons, the three kids uncover their parents’ top-secret operation and decide to form a task force of their own, named Spyders.

The beloved Spyders will return in 2022 for two more fun-filled, action-packed seasons.

In season 3, Nikki, Daniel and Tommy travel to an RV campsite to stop a deadly earthquake launched by criminals who want to steal raw diamonds from an underground deposit inside Belleview nature reserve.  With the clock ticking, the Spyders must use their wits and skill to uncover who is behind the earthquakes from within their camp before they cause total devastation.

In season 4, the Spyders return to Belleview reserve to find a mysterious criminal who is secretly spreading toxic amoebas that are rapidly destroying all the plant life in their wake. The Spyders ask a local biologist to create an organic pesticide that can stop the impending disaster. But when the problem persists, they discover a shocking truth behind the mass poisoning.    

Spyders is a comedy-adventure series based on an original idea by the founders of Life of Dad, the largest online community of Dads, Tom Riles, David M. Guest and Patrick Quinn. It was developed and written by award winning showrunner Michal Cooper-Keren (North Star, Spell Keepers).

The series' actors include Kim Or Azulai, Kobi Maimon, Nati Kluger, Yaron Brubinsky, Meirav Shirom  Amit Hechter, Naya Federman, Yonatan Gottlieb, Eden Saban, , Tal Musari, Yehuda Bohbot, Gilad Kletter, Michal Levy, Ruth Asarsai, Uri Yaniv, Nicole Podobliani, Alon Gavish and others.

Ilan Rosenfeld is the co-head writer of the third season and Nadav Ben Simon is the writer of the fourth season.

Following the success of the first two seasons of Spyders, Nickelodeon International's management team is now looking to produce not only more global Israeli kids hits, but also hunting for success in the drama, documentary and even animation fields.

“Israel is producing a lot of great content to the world, and the merger with ViacomCBS has been amazing for us, because now we are in a big family that really puts content in front of everything else,” Orly Atlas-Katz, CEO of Ananey and Executive Vice President (EVP), ViacomCBS Networks Israel, told The Hollywood Reporter. “And the mission of ViacomCBS is to unleash the power of content to everyone on all platforms. So we fit like hand in glove for this vision. Prior to the acquisition, we were quite a big company in Israel and also had some success abroad. But since we became part of the family, it has become bigger and bigger.”

Atlas-Katz says her team has cooperated with Israel pay TV giant Hot and Nick International to ensure the show appeals to Israeli and international audiences, and that process has worked smoothly. “We write a script, we send it to our partners at Nick International, we get notes and if we don’t agree on something, we discuss it,” she explains. “For example, for us, it was very important to have a cast that is famous and has influencers on social media in Israel. But it is also very important for them to have diversity and all kinds of stuff in the casting. So we came up with an amazing cast for the third and fourth seasons.”

Atlas-Katz says the global success has opened the door for more Israeli kids content and has at times surprised even her team. “I was surprised by the English-speaking countries,” especially because Spyders is dubbed into English, she says. “It was huge in Australia and in the U.K. It used to be the English-speaking countries preferred their content in their own language, especially with kids. And they have so much content in English.”

Other Ananey kids program successes also began in Israel only to find a more global fanbase. One such Ananey story has been The Greenhouse, the first-ever Israeli series to be acquired by Netflix for a remake (titled Greenhouse Academy) by Ananey’s Nutz Productions unit. The show, about a brother and sister who lose their mother in a spaceship crash and go to an elite school for gifted future leaders where they face challenges and must help save the country from a disaster, aired on Nickelodeon U.K. in an English dubbed version. It was also sold to HBO Europe and Belgium’s Medialaan/VTM KZoom channels.

Ananey’s pre-school DIY series Craft Party, which emerged as a top 5 hit on kids TV network CBBC in the U.K. that gave it a remake after the original became one of the highest-rated shows on Nick Jr. Israel, drama The Hood about a blue-collar neighborhood in a rich district, and fantasy-mystery show Spell Keepers have also ended up drawing international audiences.

Atlas-Katz told THR that her team is looking to continue the momentum with an eye on global hits, with talent relationships a key focus and ingredient of success. While ViacomCBS’ investment in content is important, “for us, it is mainly about the connection with showrunners in Israel,” the executive says. “We have great relationships and are working closely with big names, because in the end, it’s all about the story. For example, on Spyders, we have Michal Cooper Keren who is amazing. It is her second show with us, and she is already writing the next project for kids for us.”

Asked about the secret sauce or key ingredient of Spyders and other Ananey kids shows, Atlas-Katz points to three things. “In our teen dramas, we always have a cliffhanger at the end of an episode, which fits streaming and linear, because kids must see the next episode. It’s something that we are really focusing on.”

She continues: “The second thing is that Israeli writers have layers when they are writing a story. On Spyders, for example, we got a lot of reaction from parents who watch with their kids, because you have a layer for kids, but you also have a layer for the parents. Family viewing is very important and a key factor in kids programming today.”

Finally, “we always focus on kids saving the situation,” explains Atlas-Katz. “It means that kids can solve anything. And it’s something that kids really appreciate because it is empowering and they feel really, really strong after watching it.”

Ananey also produces outside the young adult and kids space and is hoping to find more global success in other areas. For example, Atlas-Katz says the firm is currently working on seven animation projects and plans to do more documentaries after recently producing the original documentary Vaxxed Nation for ViacomCBS’ Smithsonian Channel, providing a closer look at how Israel became a world leader in vaccinating its population against COVID-19. The documentary premiered July 11 on Smithsonian Channel in the U.S. and U.K. “When ViacomCBS acquired Ananey, we understood and saw the trend of docs on Netflix and in other places, so we jumped into this as well. And our first one is already all over the world, so we are happy with it.”

Ananey is also looking to make a global splash with a drama hit. “Our goals include producing for the international market adult drama and kids stuff,” says Atlas-Katz. “We are going to produce more and more and we really hope for a big success. We are hoping that the Fauda will come out of Ananey. It was considered a huge success of Israeli content, and we are definitely planning to be the next one to launch some big series for adults that is successful all over the world.”

ViacomCBS is the first port of call for Ananey when it looks for a partner or buyer for its content, but the firm is also open to doing business with other  companies. “But I’m happy that ViacomCBS sees Israel as an important part of their strategy,” says Atlas-Katz. “And I think now all the big platforms, especially with streaming, understand that people want to see content from all over the world.”

*The above ratings are all Live Action Demo, K9-14.

Magpie Games to Launch 'Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game' Kickstarter on August 3

Avatar Legends RPG on Kickstarter Aug 3rd!


Albuquerque, NM–July 12, 2021: Magpie Games will launch a Kickstarter on August 3rd of this year for Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game—a tabletop RPG set in the world of Nickelodeon’s animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra—to be published March 22,  2022. 

Magpie Games announced earlier this year they had secured a multi-year licensing agreement with ViacomCBS Consumer Products to produce the roleplaying game. Avatar Legends: The  Roleplaying Game will be the first release with two supplements to follow in August 2022 and  February 2023.  

“We’re so honored and excited to announce the Kickstarter for Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying  Game,” says Mark Diaz Truman, CEO of Magpie Games. “We have spent the last ten years connecting with backers via Kickstarter, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to involve fans through crowdfunding. There’s a whole world to explore in the Avatar Legends universe, and we can’t wait to show you all that we have planned!” 

The Kickstarter will run from August 3rd through September 2nd, serving as a pre-order mechanism for the direct-to-consumer market while announcing the game and making it accessible to fans of Avatar that may have not yet tried a tabletop RPG.


Fans can enjoy a sneak peek of the game by downloading the free Avatar Legends: The RPG Quickstart through www.magpiegames.com/avatarrpg. The quickstart contains all the material needed to try the game, including a new adventure featuring six pre-generated heroes! 

Magpie Games is proud to feature the work of a diverse team of designers and writers for Avatar  Legends: The RPG, including Asian-American and Indigenous contributors who have been working on the game since late 2020.  

“One of the best parts of working on Avatar Legends: The RPG is getting to dive into all the rich details of this complex world and seeing how each era impacts the next,” says Yeonsoo Julian Kim,  one of the contributing designers and writers. “I’m excited for players to tell stories that explore what their characters personally value, as well as how those values fit into the larger picture of the world’s history. There is a lot worth fighting for in this universe, and not everyone is fighting for the  same things.”

Avatar Legends; The RPG official synopsis:

"Join your friends in a unique opportunity to return to a beloved setting—this time as the heroes of the story! Rising to meet their destiny, players will make characters using playbooks—templates that help players build and play compelling protagonists in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. In Avatar Legends: The RPG, you and your friends might protect local merchants from the Triple Threat Triad in Republic City, travel through a spirit portal to rescue a child taken into the Spirit World, negotiate peace between feuding communities within the Earth Kingdom, or pursue mysteries (and villains) that arise throughout their adventures!"

Avatar Legends; The RPG uses the Powered by the Apocalypse game engine, similar to many of  Magpie Games’ other products, such as Masks: A New Generation, Bluebeard’s Bride, and Urban Shadows.  

About Avatar: The Last Airbender

Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender emerged from its three-season run (61 episodes), from  February 2005 to July 2008, as one of the most beloved animated properties in history. Honored with a Peabody Award and Primetime Emmy, along with multiple Annie Awards and Genesis Awards, the series follows the adventures of the main protagonist Aang and his friends, who must save the world by defeating Fire Lord Ozai and ending the destructive war with the Fire Nation.  

In addition to the series’ success, the property has spawned into several bestselling book series, which continue to roll out new original stories. The graphic novel series most recently spent two months on the New York Times Graphic Books Bestseller list in 2020, and the young adult novels have spent 22 cumulative weeks on the New York Times Young Adult Bestseller list and have shipped over a quarter million copies. The DVD and Blu-rays are also incredibly successful, with the Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Complete Series generating nearly $38MM in retail sales since its 2015 release. 

About The Legend of Korra

The Legend of Korra launched in April 2012 on Nickelodeon and ran for four seasons (52 episodes).  The series ranked as basic cable’s number-one kids’ show in its first season, drawing 3.8 million viewers per episode, the highest for an animated series that year. Created and executive produced by DiMartino and Konietzko, The Legend of Korra is translated into more than 25 languages for  Nickelodeon-branded channels internationally.  The property has translated into a successful ongoing graphic novel series written by TV series co-creator DiMartino. The first graphic novel storyline, Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, has captured various top 10 sales spots across children’s fiction, YA science fiction, and graphic novel categories since its debut in 2017. The epic story of The Legend of Korra, set in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender 70 years later, follows the journey of Avatar Korra, a 17-year-old girl striving to live up to the legacy of her predecessor Avatar Aang while using her mastery of all four elements to confront political and spiritual unrest in a modernizing world.

The epic story of Avatar: The Last Airbender follows the journey of Aang, a 12-year-old boy torn between fulfilling his fate as the long-awaited Avatar, who can master all four elements and bring balance to the world, and just wanting to be a regular kid. 

Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra
Launched in April 2012, Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra ran for four seasons (52 episodes). Its first season premiered as basic cable’s number one kid’s show and drew 3.8 million viewers per episode, the highest for an animated series that year. Created and executive produced by Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the series is translated in more than 25 languages for Nickelodeon branded channels internationally.  The property has translated into a successful ongoing graphic novel series written by TV series co-creator DiMartino. The first graphic novel storyline, Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, has captured various Top 10 sales spots across children’s fiction, YA science fiction, and graphic novel categories since its debut in 2017. The epic story of The Legend of Korra, set in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender 70 years later, follows the journey of Avatar Korra, a 17-year-old girl striving to live up to the legacy of her predecessor Avatar Aang, while using her mastery of all four elements to confront political and spiritual unrest in a modernizing world.
