Moxie 88 Developing Live-Action Reboot and Animated Series For Paramount+ and Nickelodeon

The Los Angeles-based production company Moxie 88 recently created an unannounced live-action reboot series for Paramount+ and is producing a animated TV series for Nickelodeon, Variety is reporting! Writers Dan Carrillo Levy and Eugenio Villamar, who co-founded Moxie 88 in 2015, also has a first-look deal with Paramount/Nickelodeon. Moxie 88 is focused on the development of film, television, animation, and multi-platform projects for studios and independent productions.

Not much is currently known about Levy and Villamar's projects for Nickelodeon and Paramount+, however, one property that fits the bill is Dora the Explorer, which Nickelodeon and Paramount+ are currently rebooting as a CG-animated preschool series and a live-action show inspired by the tone of Paramount Pictures’ 2019 Dora and the Lost City of Gold theatrical release, with this new version for targeting the tween demo.

Moxie 88 recently entered an ambitious partnership with Exile Content Studio and Blue Demon Jr. which aims to reenergize the masked luchador sci-fi fantasy genre through a number of feature films and multi-platform media content. Their first project, The Demon, is co-written by the Moxie 88 founders and Eugenio Villamar and will be directed by Carrillo Levy. It kickstarts principal photography in early 2024. Aside from their feature films, the partnership will develop and produce a television show aimed at younger audiences, an animated TV series for children, scripted and non-scripted series, music, gaming, spirits, merchandise and an array of publishing projects.

iCarly made a huge splash on Nickelodeon from 2007 to 2012. Since its revival on Paramount+ in 2021, the show has had plenty of viral moments and a ton of adorable moments between Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and Freddie (Nathan Kress).

In the new episodes, the status of Creddie is finally addressed and fans get to see the relationship play out throughout the season.

"I can promise that there will be no more avoiding the question. It's been a big conversation and ultimately, the only thing that we knew for sure was we just can't avoid it anymore. Questions are going to get answered. Relationships are going to get sorted out," Kress told PRIDE.

The third season also dropped at the beginning of Pride Month and fans of the series have fallen in love with queer character, Harper, played by Laci Mosley.

"Harper will remain to be very gay. There will be plenty of gay moments that you will really enjoy," Mosley says. "Harper's on her own weird journey where you see her have wacky antics, accents, and maybe you see her fall in love with a new interest. You'll see her tagging along with Spencer doing very weird things as well."
