Brian Robbins, President and CEO of Nickelodeon and Chief Content Officer has revealed that Nickelodeon is currently developing a fourth movie inspired by the network's beloved animated series, SpongeBob SquarePants!

Nickelodeon is also in the midst of expanding the SpongeBob universe with spin-offs.

ViacomCBS Chief Makes Plea for Paramount Plus Content From UK Indies at Edinburgh Television Festival

In a speech at the 2021 Edinburgh Television Festival, ViacomCBS Networks UK chief content officer Ben Frow has committed to commissioning local content for the company’s forthcoming SVOD service Paramount+ which is set to launch in the UK in 2022.


The direct-to-consumer streaming service is the successor to CBS All Access, Paramount+ launched in the US and across Latin America and in Brazil on 4 March 2021, the Nordics on 25 March and Australia on August 11. It offers exclusive access to the latest films from the Paramount Pictures canon and TV series from the ViacomCBS stable such as Nickelodeon, Nick Jr. Paramount Network, MTV, Comedy Central and Channel 5 UK.

In August, ViacomCBS announced plans to roll out Paramount+ in key European markets including UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, building on its partnership with Sky.

Yet in addition to a catalogue of hit shows and movies from the ViacomCBS brands and studios, the UK version’s content offer, as revealed by Frow, will feature high-end, original drama and documentary content from the UK. For this, Frow called on the UK’s burgeoning indie sector to pitch series which had UK resonance and global appeal, confirming that the business had a dedicated budget to invest in premium local content. “It’s about great content. We’re starting to work on our Paramount+ factual and drama slates – all ideas are welcome,” Frow told the Edinburgh audience.

Speaking alongside Frow, ViacomCBS Networks UK Daniel Pearl, overseeing unscripted originals for Paramount+ and Channel 5, welcomed the opportunity to develop premium show of a global audience and asked indies to submit a broad range of ideas covering anthologies, feature documentaries, boxsets and more. “Ours is an ongoing commitment to commissioning premium shows for SVOD and we are listening to the best ideas out there,” he added.

TIME AND NICKELODEON ANNOUNCE SEARCH FOR SECOND ANNUAL KID OF THE YEAR

Submissions Open Now Through Aug. 31, at NickKidoftheYear.com

Daytime Emmy® Nominated Kid of the Year TV Special, Executive Produced by Trevor Noah and Produced by TIME Studios, Set to Air on Nickelodeon in Early 2022

Join the Search! @TIME @Nickelodeon #KidoftheYear


HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--July 16, 2021--TIME, TIME for Kids and Nickelodeon today announced that the search has begun for the second annual Kid of the Year, a multiplatform honor recognizing extraordinary young leaders who are making amazing and admirable contributions in a range of fields, including social justice, science, education and more. The Daytime Emmy® Award-nominated Kid of the Year TV special, produced by TIME Studios, will return on Nickelodeon in early 2022 to spotlight the top finalists from the search.


Nickelodeon’s TV special--executive produced by Trevor Noah (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), who also served as host last year--will highlight five honorees, with one outstanding kid ultimately being recognized as TIME Kid of the Year, and featured on the cover of TIME and in additional coverage in TIME For Kids.

Trevor Noah

Now through Aug. 31, parents, teachers and friends can nominate a kid (aged 8-16) who is creating, standing up and helping to make the world a better place. Each of the finalists will receive funds to further their respective causes and serve as a TIME For Kids Kid Reporter, with exclusive access to a Nickelodeon event. For official submission rules and additional information about the initiative, visit NickKidoftheYear.com.

Following a nationwide search, last year’s initiative saw over 5,000 submissions, with 15-year-old  Gitanjali Rao, who uses technology to tackle issues ranging from contaminated drinking water to opioid addiction and cyberbullying, chosen as TIME’s 2020 Kid of the Year. Finalists included Rebekah Bruesehoff, a transgender activist working with LGBTQ youth, Hannah Jackson, a criminal justice reform advocate, Jordan Reeves, an advocate for those with physical disabilities, and Elijah Lee, a child abuse and social justice activist.

Gitanjali Rao

"The Kid of the Year recognition has helped me amplify my voice and gave me a global platform to share the need for innovation," says Rao. "The entire process of selecting the honorees highlighted optimism, kindness, positivity, and shared the work of our generation. Each of us has different talents and we try to light up the community with whatever we can, and Kid of the Year showcases that talent and our ability to make a difference no matter how small it is."  

The Kid of the Year TV special will also feature stars from entertainment, sports and pop culture surprising the honorees. Last year’s show saw celebrities including Kristen Bell, Simone Biles, Dixie D'Amelio, Billie Eilish, Rob Gronkowski, Neil Patrick Harris, Ken Jeong, Angelina Jolie and Chloe Kim joining the celebration.

Last year’s special, which aired in December 2020, was nominated for a Daytime Emmy® Award in the category of Outstanding Daytime Non-Fiction Special. The special also received a second nomination in the category of Outstanding Daytime Promotional Announcement.

The Kid of the Year TV special is a co-production of TIME Studios, Day Zero Productions, Mainstay Entertainment and Nickelodeon.

Netflix Renews 'Sharkdog' for Season 2

Netflix has renewed Sharkdog for a second season ahead of the show's debut on Friday, September 3! The news was revealed by Liam Mitchell, who voices Max on the show in a jawsome interview with CURRENT. In addition to the renewal, Mitchell also revealed that season one will have 20-ish episodes and a Halloween special.


Sharkdog is a brand new animated series from Singaporean creator Jacinth Tan. The 20 x 7 minute episode animated series is produced by ViacomCBS International Studios, in partnership with Singaporean based CGI animation studio One Animation.

Sharkdog follows 10 year old Max and his best friend Sharkdog - half shark, half dog, all appetite. Blissfully unaware of his own strength, stealth and general sharkiness, Sharkdog often leaves a trail of chaos in his wake. But, like all good half-dogs, he's Max's BFF and Max is his.

Sharkdog is VIS' first internationally originated global animated series for Netflix. It is also the first animated series from Singapore to come out of Nickelodeon's Global Animated Shorts Program, designed to identify and develop long form original comedy-driven content for kids globally.


It is the latest agreement between a ViacomCBS company and Netflix. Last year, Nickelodeon and Netflix struck an output deal that will yield original animated feature films and TV series based on existing Nickelodeon library characters as well as newly created ones. Prior to the agreement, Netflix ordered forthcoming specials based on The Loud House (premiered August 20) and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The deal builds on a relationship that has brought animated specials Rocko’s Modern Life: Static ClingInvader Zim: Enter the Florpus and Glitch Techs to Netflix. Netflix is also producing a live-action version of Nickelodeon's beloved animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Prior to Netflix ordering Sharkdog, Nickelodeon International announced in 2017 that it had greenlit a series of 90-second shorts based on the characters, which premiered as a short-form digital series for the Nickelodeon Play App in Asia.

Sharkdog was the first Singaporean series to come out of Nickelodeon's Global Animated Shorts Program. But it’s in good company, as several animated shorts from Nick’s program have turned into full fledged series recently. This includes Toronto-based prodco Nelvana’s 26 x 22-minute animated series Ollie’s Pack, which began as an original short dubbed Monster Pack for Nickelodeon’s 2013 Animated Shorts Program; The Loud House, also from the 2013 Animated Shorts Program; and It’s Pony, which was part of Nick’s 2015 Global Animated shorts program.

SOS Hydration to Launch 'PAW Patrol' Line of Kids’ Healthy Hydration Beverages

SOS Hydration Partners with ViacomCBS to Launch PAW Patrol Line of Kids’ Healthy Hydration Beverages Ahead of September ‘National Family Hydration Awa


PAWsome new character-laden line of low sugar, better-for-you kids’ hydration drink mixes now exclusively available on shelves at Walmart stores nationwide and at Walmart.com; Hydration Awareness month initiative to educate and motivate around the abundant health benefits of proper hydration

There is PAWsome news for health-minded families who want to ensure their children stay hydrated this scorching hot summer season and beyond. SOS Hydration, makers of science-based, research-proven and best-in-class family hydration drink products, announced its partnership with leading global entertainment company ViacomCBS to license character images from Nickelodeon's hit animated preschool series, PAW Patrol®, produced by Spin Master Entertainment and airing on Nickelodeon, for labeling on its new SOS Kids line.

Commencing September 2021, children across North America can enjoy SOS Hydration’s healthier and more effective alternative to the mass-market sugary drinks targeted to children. The company’s new child–specific, low sugar electrolyte drink mix formula—SOS Kids, featuring PAW Patrol—is now available online at www.SOSKidsHydration.com, Walmart.com and, this September, will be exclusively available on shelves in every Walmart store throughout the United States. This coincides with SOS Hydration’s first annual “National Family Hydration Awareness Month” initiative is set to kick off this September, during which the public is invited to learn about the physical, cognitive and emotional benefits of pre-hydrating to avoid becoming dehydrated.


“As a dad of two young girls I wanted a better-for-you lunch box alternative to the high sugar, unhealthy beverages marketed at children...plus I understand the power of PAW Patrol,” said James Mayo, Co-Founder and CEO of SOS Hydration. “My girls love the pups and I love what they stand for. With our company having formulated the first kids-specific electrolyte, vitamin and mineral drink, my wife and I felt the PAW Patrol franchise was a perfect partner since their values mirror our own. The pups now grace the packaging of our SOS Kids line that not only tastes great, but also gives children that boost of hydration—all without the artificial ‘nasties’ and high sugar content of other so-called solutions on the market.”

“The PAW Patrol pups serve as good role models for children, and this certainly includes making healthier drink choices” said Priya Mukhedkar, Senior Vice President, Packaged Goods, ViacomCBS Consumer Products. “We’re proud to see the pups featured on SOS Kids hydration products, designed to help America’s youth reap the benefits of a tasty drink they’ll actually enjoy while providing critical hydration that’ll help them stay focused, alert and energized to power through their day. SOS allows families to ‘follow the science’ when it comes to choosing a drink, be it for themselves or their children since families that hydrate together are sure to have more sustained fun for together.”

SOS Kids was specially-formulated for daily hydration by SOS Hydration Co-Founder and board certified Internal Medicine physician Dr. Blanca Lizaola-Mayo to help keep children optimally hydrated, and actually avoid becoming dehydrated in the first place—a condition that compromises the body and mind in a variety of ways. SOS Kids has only three grams of sugar; is boosted with Vitamins A and C, minerals Zinc and Magnesium; and contains no artificial additives—all designed to keep kids ahead of their hydration needs so they can perform better and get more from their days. “The first sign of thirst means you are dehydrated,” notes Dr. Lizaola-Mayo. “SOS helps the body absorb water two to three times faster than drinking water alone and provides a better alternative for children over juices, powders and other sports drinks laden with unnecessary sugar, calories, carbohydrates and additives.”


Mayo added, “SOS Kids is a valuable addition to our popular adult hydration line that is based off independent and 3rd party research for maximum advocacy,” Mayo said. “We’ve also put our product formulas up for independent research so that we can base our claims on fact rather than self-promotional rhetoric. One need only review the ‘How does SOS Compare’ page of our web site to appreciate the comprehensive suite of reasons putting our formula in a scientific league of its own. We want consumers to fully vet us against our competitors as well as published scientific standards so they can truly understand appreciate what sets up apart and makes our product worthy of their hard-earned dollars.”

From the company’s web site at www.SOSKidsHydration.com, families can learn more about the science of hydration, and see the full line of SOS Hydration products for both adults and children—including SOS Kids featuring PAW Patrol. Sounds pup-tastic to me!

Brian Robbins Confirms More 'SpongeBob' TV Shows and Movies Are On the Way; Teases Sandy Cheeks Spin-Off

In an interview with CNBC's Squawk Box today (August 20), Nickelodeon president and CEO Brian Robbins revealed that, following the success of Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years and The Patrick Star Show, the first two spin-offs from Nickelodeon's hit SpongeBob SquarePants animated series, plans are well on the way to expand the SpongeBob Universe even more by giving more beloved characters from the show their own spin-off TV series and/or movie!


Interestingly, Robbins seemingly confirms plans for a SpongeBob spin-off for Sandy Cheeks, the Texan squirrel and one of SpongeBob's closest friends in Bikini Bottom! First reported earlier this year, the hybrid movie is said to be putting the animated character in a live-action setting. Nickelodeon is producing the untitled movie, which will be directed by Liza Johnson.


In the interview, Robbins, who also serves as President, Kids & Family Entertainment at ViacomCBS and as Chief Content Officer, Kids & Family, Paramount+, discusses how Nickelodeon is more than capable of competing against Disney and its branded Disney+ SVOD platform.

Update (8/23) - In a recent interview at MegaCon, Rodger Bumpass, the voice of Squidward, revealed that there are at least two SpongeBob spin-off specials in development, with plans to eventually do one spin-off for each character. The first two spin-offs won't be centered on Squidward, however. Bumpass also suggested that the specials could be for Netflix, but this may have changed now that ViacomCBS has changed streaming strategies.


Streaming On: Kids and Family with Brian Robbins | ViacomCBS


In our Streaming On series, host Dometi Pongo speaks to the leaders in streaming across ViacomCBS. In this episode, Pongo interviews Brian Robbins, President and CEO of Nickelodeon and Chief Content Officer, kids and family for Paramount, about the company's deep library of IP and franchises for kids and families and the strategy around reaching the youngest consumers of content.


Nickelodeon CEO Not Worried About Disney+

In the lucrative battle for children streamers of video content, Nickelodeon features a character line-up (SpongeBob SquarePants, Paw Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, iCarly) more than capable of competing against Disney and its branded Disney+ SVOD platform, says CEO Brian Robbins, who is also chief content officer, kids and family at Paramount+.

According to Nielsen, children from 2 – 11 years of age are watching 11+ hours of content weekly on connected streaming devices. Speaking Aug. 20 on “CNBC Squawk Box,” Robbins said SpongeBob SquarePants characters are being spun-off in separate series and movies on Paramount+.

[“That's the gift that keeps on giving,” said the host] “SpongeBob is truly ubiquitous. He might be the most popular animated character of all time" [added Robbins.]

Robbins said ViacomCBS remains “excited” about the launch of Paramount+, and the Aug. 20 theatrical debut of Paw Patrol: The Movie, which the executive says is a preschool juggernaut.

“It’s the biggest preschool franchise in the world,” he said. “We want to continue to leverage our biggest franchises into direct-to-consumer relationships with our audiences.”

Relationships that include consumer products and amusement rides.

“That’s the case with Paw Patrol, it’s not only the biggest preschool show for us, it’s a CPG juggernaut for us,” Robbins said.

When asked about kid-friendly Disney+, which ended its most recent fiscal period with 116 million subscribers worldwide, the executive said the kids market is big enough for multiple players.

“Kids are enormous consumers of content…they seek out what they want,” Robbins said. “Sometimes that’s going to be on Disney+ and that’s OK, a lot of the time it’s going to be on Nickelodeon and Paramount+.”

Nickelodeon CEO isn't worried about Disney+

  • Brian Robbins, CEO of ViacomCBS's kid-centered TV network Nickelodeon, said Friday that he isn't worried about competition from Disney+ (NYSE:DIS) because "there are enough eyeballs for everyone."
  • "Kids are enormous consumers of content ... and they seek out what they want," he told CNBC.
  • "Sometimes that's going to be on Disney+ and that's OK, a lot of the time it's going to be on Nickelodeon and Paramount+," Robbins added.
  • The Nickelodeon CEO asserted that kids programming provided a key draw for ViacomCBS's Paramount+ streaming service.
  • As a result, the company is looking to leverage its existing franchises to create more streaming content, Robbins reported. This includes spin-offs centered on SpongeBob SquarePants characters and projects like the recently released PAW Patrol movie.
  • Robbins said the company also got a programming boost from multi-generational interest, with parents introducing their kids to nostalgic properties or younger people discovering old content through streaming.
  • He pointed to the recent iCarly reboot as an example of this process in action.
  • ViacomCBS (NASDAQ:VIAC) (NASDAQ:VIACA) has continued to expand its streaming lineup lately.
  • In a deal with Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), the company plans to launch SkyShowtime, a streaming service aimed at more than 20 European territories.

Nickelodeon Working On New 'The Smurfs' Movie

Nickelodeon is set to premiere The Smurfs, a brand new CG-animated series which follows the beloved characters embarking upon rousing new adventures in September 2021 - and it seems like Nickelodeon has even bigger plans for the iconic franchise!


In a Smurf-tastic new video in ViacomCBS' Streaming On series, Brian Robbins, President and CEO of Nickelodeon and Chief Content Officer, kids and family for Paramount+ revealed that Nickelodeon is currently working on a The Smurfs movie!


As the film is still under wraps, not much is currently known about the theatrical. Interestingly, Robbins mentions the The Smurfs theatrical in a video for ViacomCBS' streaming services, which may hint that the movie will be simultaneously released in theaters and on Paramount+, similar to how Paramount Pictures just released PAW Patrol: The Movie.

Blue and small, and standing only three apples tall, The Smurfs are set to make their Nickelodeon debut in an all-new series premiering Friday, Sept. 10, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The news was announced today by Nickelodeon, the number-one network for kids, and LAFIG Belgium and IMPS, the worldwide licensors for The Smurfs. All-new episodes will continue to rollout Friday nights on Nickelodeon and debut internationally in the fall.


The original series marks the return of the globally renowned characters to television for the first time in nearly 40 years and follows Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy, Hefty, Clumsy and the other inhabitants of Smurf Village on all-new adventures, packed with humor, heart and high-stakes action. In the premiere episode, “Smurf-Fu,” when Smurfette rescues Brainy from a giant snake, the other Smurfs ask her to teach them “Smurf-Fu.” Next in, “Diaper Daddy,” when everyone is tired of changing Baby’s diapers, Handy decides to invent a robot that will do the job.

Upcoming episodes include: "Clumsy Not Clumsy" (#102), "Unsmurfable Smile" (#103), "Who's Heftier?" (#104), "Smurfs In Disguise" (#105), "DRIIINNGGGGG!" (#106), "Alien Smurf" (#107), "Leaf It Alone" (#108) and "Bringing Up Smurfy" (#109).

Leading up to the premiere, Nickelodeon will treat viewers to a sneak-peak on Monday. September 6 at 12:30 p.m. (ET/PT). In the episode "Where's Papa Smurf?," because of a mishap, Papa Smurf disappears and the only way to make him visible again is to get a whisker from Azrael. (#104A)

The voice cast pushing the charm and absurdity of the original comics to even greater heights includes: David Freeman (7 Promises) as Papa Smurf, the father figure keeping the other Smurfs in line; Berangere McNeese (Matriochkas) as Smurfette, a curious Smurf who is always ready to take part in new adventures; Lenny Mark Irons (No Man’s Land) as Gargamel, a conniving human wizard with a bottomless thirst to capture Smurfs; Youssef El Kaoukibi (NRJ Belgium) as Brainy, who considers himself the smartest of the bunch; and Catherine Hershey (Boundary Games) as Willow, the brave and wise matriarch of a new tribe of girl Smurfs.

The Smurfs CG-animated series acquisition is overseen by Layla Lewis, Senior Vice President, Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships and Dana Cluverius, Senior Vice President, Current Series Animation for Nickelodeon.

The brand-new series underscores Nickelodeon’s strategy to be the home of the biggest franchises kids and families love. The Smurfs expands Nickelodeon’s growing portfolio of influential properties that already includes SpongeBob SquarePants, The Patrick Star Show, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, PAW Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Blue’s Clues & You!, the all-new animated Star Trek: Prodigy series and the Transformers co-production.

The Smurfs is a Peyo Productions and Dupuis Audiovisuel production, in co-production with KiKA, Ketnet and RTBF, with the participation of TF1 and with the participation of Wallimage (La Wallonie), of Screen Flanders, of BNPPFFF and with the support of the Tax Shelter of the Belgian Government and the participation of the CNC.
