Nickelodeon South East Asia To Premiere "I Am Frankie" This October

A cutting edge, experimental android navigates the perils and wonders of being a teenager in I Am Frankie, Nickelodeon’s newest serialized live-action show, premiering this October on Nickelodeon South East Asia! I Am Frankie tells the story of Frankie Gaines (Alex Hook), who looks like any other human girl, but harbors a big secret--she functions as a high-tech computer, complete with internet access, extensive memory and more. In fact, you could say she's Wired Differently than other teenagers! The series will premiere daily at 4pm on Nickelodeon Singapore (SG) and Nickelodeon Indonesia (WIB) and 5pm Nickelodeon Malaysia (MY) from Monday 23rd October 2017, and weekends at 1pm on Nickelodeon Philippines (PH) from Saturday 28th October 2017!



To celebrate the launch of I am Frankie, Nickelodeon South East Asia aired a exclusive sneak-peek on Friday 13th October 2017.

After escaping from tech company EGG Labs to avoid being used for evil purposes, Frankie enrolls in high school in an attempt to pass as a typical teenager. Despite having an inside full of wires and circuits, Frankie begins to adapt well by bonding with her new best friend Dayton (Nicole Alyse Nelson), juggling loads of homework and dealing with boy crushes, all while keeping her true identity a secret.

Suspicion soon arises about Frankie, as popular girls Tammy (Mohana Krishnan), Lucia (Uriel Baldesco) and Makayla (Kristi Beckett) question her quick victory during a math competition. To complicate things even further, Frankie’s wiring goes haywire as she starts experiencing human emotion, creating more challenges and adventurous fun. How long can she keep her true identity a secret while maintaining herself as a normal teenager?


Online at nick-asia.com, fans can find out more about the series and watch exclusive video clips from the show.

Filmed in the new state-of-the-art Viacom International Studios in Miami, I am Frankie was originally produced as Yo Soy Franky by Nickelodeon Latin America in Colombia. The series is created by renowned Argentine writer Marcela Citterio. The English language version is produced by Paradiso Pictures and Nickelodeon Latin America.

I Am Frankie received its world premiere on Monday 11th September 2017 on Nickelodeon USA, and is currently being distributed to Nickelodeon’s global audiences spanning 170+ countries and territories via the brand’s more than 80 channels and branded blocks.

Viacom And Charter Reach Tentative Deal On New Carriage Agreement

Viacom Inc. and Charter Communications have reached an agreement in principle on a new carriage contract, a deal that will keep Viacom’s networks on Charter’s Spectrum service without disruption. The two companies confirmed the news in a joint statement: “Viacom and Charter have reached an agreement in principle. Spectrum subscribers will continue to have access to Viacom’s networks, without disruption, while we finalize terms.”​


The companies on Sunday night agreed to a “short-term” extension of their carriage negotiations after the expiration of the current deal. Leading up to the deals expiration date, Charter customers were warned of a potential blackout or lockout of Viacom's channels, however, due to the extension, Spectrum’s 16.6 million customers were able to keep watching Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and other Viacom networks as the talks continued.

No terms of the agreement have been disclosed, but it's likely to be viewed as at least a partial victory for Viacom CEO Bob Bakish, who has been engineering a turnaround at the conglomerate since he took over last year.

The impasse follows a recent dispute between Disney and Altice, which acquired Cablevision and now operates the Optimum cable service. Those parties had clashed primarily over sports rights, whereas the issue with Charter and Viacom is the decision last spring by Charter to remove bedrock Viacom channels like MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central from basic service on Spectrum and put them on a higher-priced tier. Along with that move, it rolled out a skinny bundle that features no sports -and no Viacom. Bob Bakish, who became Viacom CEO in 2016, has publicly admonished Charter for the moves, which comes as he sets a new overall strategic course for the company.

Charter acquired Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks last year to become the second biggest cable operator in the United States, giving its Spectrum-branded service roughly 26 million subscribers in about 41 states.

Both sides are under pressure from cord-cutting, or dropping of pay television, as audiences flock to cheaper streaming services that have emerged in the past decade.

Nickelodeon Goes 'Over The Top' And Mobile With NTT DOCOMO's dTV-Channel In Japan

Original Nickelodeon Asia Press Release via Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Asia's official Pressroom:

NICKELODEON GOES ‘OVER THE TOP’ AND MOBILE WITH NTT DOCOMO’S DTV-CHANNELTM IN JAPAN


1st ever launch of a Nickelodeon linear channel available only on OTT



CANNES/ TOKYO, 18 OCTOBER 2017 – Viacom has announced the launch of a new Nickelodeon linear channel via ‘over-the-top’ (OTT) and mobile platforms in Japan – the first time internationally it will make a Nickelodeon-branded subscription TV channel available only via streaming services.

The new channel will launch in the first quarter of 2018 on Japanese OTT platform dTV-ChannelTM (an NTT DOCOMO, INC. service). The newly packaged subscription-based linear channel will offer a range of iconic Nickelodeon animation titles including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora The Explorer and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The rollout of the new Nickelodeon OTT channel builds on the success Viacom has enjoyed with MTV-branded OTT channels in Japan, having launched MTV HITS on AbemaTV and MTV MIX on Hulu Japan in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

“Over-the-top and mobile offer an important growth path for Nickelodeon and our other flagship brands in mature subscription TV markets like Japan,” said Mark Whitehead, President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Viacom International Media Networks. “This is another strong example of Viacom forging deep and innovative partnerships with OTT and mobile distributors, like NTT DOCOMO’s dTV-Channel™ in Japan, to make our ‘must-see’ content available when, where and how consumers want to view it.”

Nickelodeon is not currently available as a linear TV channel on either cable or satellite TV platforms in Japan.

“This is a great way to reconnect Japanese viewers with Nickelodeon and should open up tremendous new opportunities for the brand in this valuable and important market,” Whitehead added.

Nickelodeon France To Premiere "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend Of Boo-Kini Bottom" On Tuesday 31st October 2017

NICKELODEON'S BRAND-NEW SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS HALLOWEEN STOP-MOTION ANIMATION SPECIAL: THE LEGEND OF BOO-KINI BOTTOM PREMIERES TUESDAY 31ST OCTOBER 2017 ON NICKELODEON FRANCE


Update (17/10): Added new promo!


Nickelodeon France treats viewers to a spooky stop-motion special with the premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom, on Tuesday 31st October 2017 at 10h50 (11h50 +1)! The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom tells the story of the Flying Dutchman (Brian Doyle-Murray) coming to Bikini Bottom to make sure everyone in town is scared--especially SpongeBob, who seems to be unflappable in his belief that spooky things are actually funny. The special will be locally titled La légende de Boo-kini Bottom in France.

Inspired by the visual style of classic stop-motion animation TV specials, Bikini Bottom is decked out for Halloween and features Sandy's treedome as a mad scientist's lab, including a giant remotely operated Acorn Monster; Mr. Krabs' restaurant as "The Horrors of the Chum Bucket," displaying scenes of Plankton torturing food; and Plankton's restaurant as "The Horrors of the Krusty Krab," telling the story of Mr. Krabs turning customers into Krabby Patties and more.

Ne manque pas le marathon de Booh-Kini Bottom, mardi 31 octobre à 9h25 sur NICKELODEON FRANCE!

The characters wear Halloween costumes, with SpongeBob as a flower, Patrick as a knight, Sandy as a mad scientist, Mr. Krabs as a dollar bill, Plankton as a devil, Squidward as himself, and Karen as a cat. SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom features an original song, "The Scare Song," written by Mr. Lawrence, music by Eban Schletter and performed by the Flying Dutchman's crew of pirate ghosts.

The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom was produced at Screen Novelties, a Los Angeles-based stop-motion animation production company, where miniature puppets and sets brought Bikini Bottom to life in three dimensions. The production featured 27 unique sets, across five stages, where 15 boxes of breakfast cereal were used to create texture on Bikini Bottom's coral reefs; eight pounds of glitter were used to decorate SpongeBob's Halloween pineapple house; hundreds of popsicle sticks created the planks of the rollercoaster track that Patrick and SpongeBob ride; and "black lights" were used to create a fluorescent glow across the puppets and sets.

The special features various production techniques including: stop-motion puppet animation, marionette puppeteering, hand puppets and 2D hand-drawn animation designed by Sally Cruikshank.

Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are co-executive producers on SpongeBob SquarePants. The special was written by Mr. Lawrence, with Brian Morante serving as the storyboard director and Jennie Monica as producer. The special is being directed by Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, and produced by Chris Finnegan of Screen Novelties.

This is the second time Nickelodeon has partnered with Screen Novelties on a SpongeBob SquarePants stop-motion episode. SpongeBob SquarePants: It's a SpongeBob Christmas! debuted December 2012 and featured Plankton turning everybody in Bikini Bottom from nice to naughty.

Viewers can visit the SpongeBob SquarePants page on Nickelodeon.fr, along with the SpongeBob Facebook page and SpongeBob Instagram, to get an exclusive look at the series.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom made its world debut on Nickelodeon USA on Friday 13th October 2017 at 7:00pm (ET/PT).

Leading up to the premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom, fans can catch brand-new episodes of Bob l'éponge from Saturday 14th October 2017 at 10h25 (11h25 +1).



In the US-English dub of SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob SquarePants is voiced by Tom Kenny as SpongeBob SquarePants, an incurably optimistic sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea; Bill Fagerbakke as Patrick Star, SpongeBob's silly best friend; Roger Bumpass as Squidward, an aloof cashier of The Krusty Krab and SpongeBob's neighbor; Clancy Brown as Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob's boss and greedy owner of The Krusty Krab; Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks, Bikini Bottom's only resident rodent aquanaut and scientist; and Mr. Lawrence as Plankton, owner of the Chum Bucket and chief rival of Mr. Krabs.

SpongeBob SquarePants is executive produced by creator Stephen Hillenburg, who previously worked as a writer, director and creative director on Nickelodeon's animated series Rocko's Modern Life. Hillenburg graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a master's degree in experimental animation and his undergraduate degree, from Humboldt State University, was in natural science with an emphasis in marine biology. Hillenburg executive produced his first feature film, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which debuted Nov. 19, 2004 and his second theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, hit theaters Feb. 6, 2015. The series is produced at Nickelodeon in Burbank. SpongeBob SquarePants is locally titled Bob l'éponge in France.

Nickelodeon Australia And New Zealand To Premiere 'Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special' On Thursday 19th October 2017

NICKELODEON AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND PREMIERES LIP SYNC BATTLE SHORTIES HALLOWEEN SPECIAL,

ALL-NEW HALLOWEEN-THEMED EPISODE, ON THURSDAY 19TH OCTOBER 2017


Share it: @Nickelodeon_AU #LipSyncBattleShorties


Nickelodeon treats fans to all the fright and fun of Halloween in Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, airing on Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand on Thursday 19th October 2017 at 5:30pm (AU time; NZ time TBA). The all-new episode, hosted by multi-faceted entertainer Nick Cannon, features real-life kid participants syncing and dancing their hearts out to their favorite pop songs, set against Halloween-themed stages. The special also features a surprise appearance by Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), who will present the Lip Sync Battle Shorties winner with their very own Shorties blinged-out mic.



In Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, three hyped-up kid-battlers from across the country use their imagination to personalize their Halloween-themed performances from eccentric decorations to monster-themed costumes. Those going head to head include: Serena Quadrato, from Staten Island, NY, performing one of her favorite songs “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga; Ethan Fineshriber from Salt Lake City, taking on “Immortals” by Fall Out Boy; and Kea Peahu from Honolulu, lip syncing “Rolex” by Ayo & Teo.


Viewers are in for a treat as Rodriguez surprises the contestants and joins them, along with host Cannon, show sidekick and commentator JoJo Siwa and the Shorties Dance Crew, for a Halloween celebratory performance of the classic “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr.

“On Lip Sync Battle Shorties the kids are in charge, the performances come straight from their imagination. They’re so much cooler than we are!,” said executive producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson.

Lip Sync Battle Shorties lets three talented real-life kid participants personalize their performances, allowing them to make decisions on all creative elements, from song and costume selection, to choreography and staging. Each episode features the Shorties Dance Crew, a 10-person, in-house backup crew who has mastered all styles of dance from breakdancing to ballroom, and conclude with a special celebrity appearance and final performance from all the kids.


Based on the pop culture phenomenon of lip-sync battling, the original Spike Lip Sync Battle series features celebrities going head to head--lip-syncing the song of their choice--battling for the coolest bragging rights on the planet. The series is a ratings and multiplatform superstar for Spike and is the most-watched original series in the network’s history. Lip Sync Battle Shorties and the award-winning and Emmy-nominated series, Lip Sync Battle, are executive produced by Casey Patterson of Casey Patterson Entertainment, Jay Peterson of Matador Content, James Sunderland, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant, Rick Schwartz and Eight Million Plus Productions.

Nick Cannon has entertained audiences in film, on television, on record, onstage and online for nearly 20 years. The talented artist continues to dominate all facets of entertainment as a comedian, host, actor, writer, director, executive producer, deejay, philanthropist and children’s book author.

The two-time Emmy®-nominated Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV and Channel 5 is a global multiplatform powerhouse that can be seen in over 140 countries worldwide. The critically-acclaimed series has delivered over one billion cross-platform views since launch, over two million YouTube Channel subscribers, over two million fans on Facebook, and is the most watched original series in Spike history.

JoJo Siwa is a true teen sensation with over 4 million subscribers on YouTube and a hugely popular range of JoJo Bows.

SpongeBob's Spooktacular Halloween Ft. 'The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom' | Nickelodeon Southeast Asia

This October, Nickelodeon Southeast Asia treats viewers to SpongeBob's Spooktacular Halloween, a two-hour spook-a-thon filled with back-to-back SpongeBob SquarePants episodes featuring Bikini Bottom's spookiest villain, the Flying Dutchman! Then the thrills continue with the brand-new SpongeBob SquarePants spooky stop-motion special "The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom"!

SpongeBob's Spooktacular Halloween airs Friday 20th October 2017 from 3pm on Nickelodeon Indonesia (WIB) and from 4pm on Nickelodeon Malaysia (MY) and Nickelodeon Singapore (SG), and on Tuesday 31st October 2017 at 12:00pm on Nickelodeon Philippines (PH)!

Nicksters in the Philippines can also enter to win tickets to Nickelodeon's Takotown: "SpongeBob SquarePants' Scary HaLOLween" event, presented by Toy Kingdom, which will take place at the SMX Convention Center Aura in Taguig on Sunday 29th October 2017! Click here to enter Nick's spooktacular competition!




Nickelodeon's brand-new spooky stop-motion special with the premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom tells the story of the Flying Dutchman (Brian Doyle-Murray) coming to Bikini Bottom to make sure everyone in town is scared--especially SpongeBob, who seems to be unflappable in his belief that spooky things are actually funny.

Inspired by the visual style of classic stop-motion animation TV specials, Bikini Bottom is decked out for Halloween and features Sandy's treedome as a mad scientist's lab, including a giant remotely operated Acorn Monster; Mr. Krabs' restaurant as "The Horrors of the Chum Bucket," displaying scenes of Plankton torturing food; and Plankton's restaurant as "The Horrors of the Krusty Krab," telling the story of Mr. Krabs turning customers into Krabby Patties and more.



The characters wear Halloween costumes, with SpongeBob as a flower, Patrick as a knight, Sandy as a mad scientist, Mr. Krabs as a dollar bill, Plankton as a devil, Squidward as himself, and Karen as a cat. SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom features an original song, "The Scare Song," written by Mr. Lawrence, music by Eban Schletter and performed by the Flying Dutchman's crew of pirate ghosts.

The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom was produced at Screen Novelties, a Los Angeles-based stop-motion animation production company, where miniature puppets and sets brought Bikini Bottom to life in three dimensions. The production featured 27 unique sets, across five stages, where 15 boxes of breakfast cereal were used to create texture on Bikini Bottom's coral reefs; eight pounds of glitter were used to decorate SpongeBob's Halloween pineapple house; hundreds of popsicle sticks created the planks of the rollercoaster track that Patrick and SpongeBob ride; and "black lights" were used to create a fluorescent glow across the puppets and sets.

The special features various production techniques including: stop-motion puppet animation, marionette puppeteering, hand puppets and 2D hand-drawn animation designed by Sally Cruikshank.

Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are co-executive producers on SpongeBob SquarePants. The special was written by Mr. Lawrence, with Brian Morante serving as the storyboard director and Jennie Monica as producer. The special is being directed by Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, and produced by Chris Finnegan of Screen Novelties.

This is the second time Nickelodeon has partnered with Screen Novelties on a SpongeBob SquarePants stop-motion episode. SpongeBob SquarePants: It's a SpongeBob Christmas! debuted December 2012 and featured Plankton turning everybody in Bikini Bottom from nice to naughty.

Viewers can visit the SpongeBob SquarePants page on Nick-Asia.com, the Nickelodeon Play app (Singapore only), along with the SpongeBob Facebook page and SpongeBob Instagram, to get an exclusive look at the series.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom made its world debut on Nickelodeon USA on Friday 13th October 2017 at 7:00pm (ET/PT), and is currently rolling out on Nickelodeon channels and programming blocks globally.

SpongeBob SquarePants is voiced by Tom Kenny as SpongeBob SquarePants, an incurably optimistic sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea; Bill Fagerbakke as Patrick Star, SpongeBob's silly best friend; Roger Bumpass as Squidward, an aloof cashier of The Krusty Krab and SpongeBob's neighbor; Clancy Brown as Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob's boss and greedy owner of The Krusty Krab; Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks, Bikini Bottom's only resident rodent aquanaut and scientist; and Mr. Lawrence as Plankton, owner of the Chum Bucket and chief rival of Mr. Krabs.

SpongeBob SquarePants is executive produced by creator Stephen Hillenburg, who previously worked as a writer, director and creative director on Nickelodeon's animated series Rocko's Modern Life. Hillenburg graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a master's degree in experimental animation and his undergraduate degree, from Humboldt State University, was in natural science with an emphasis in marine biology. Hillenburg executive produced his first feature film, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which debuted Nov. 19, 2004 and his second theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, hit theaters Feb. 6, 2015. The series is produced at Nickelodeon in Burbank.

Nickelodeon Australia And New Zealand To Premiere 'Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library' On Friday 10th November 2017

NICKELODEON AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND PREMIERES ESCAPE FROM MR. LEMONCELLO’S LIBRARY,

ORIGINAL TV MOVIE BASED ON BEST-SELLING BOOK,

SUNDAY 12TH NOVEMBER 2017 AT 8:20 CAT


Share it: @Nickelodeon_AU #MrLemoncellosLibrary


Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand will premiere a new original TV movie, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, based on author Chris Grabenstein’s acclaimed children’s book of the same name, on Friday 10th November 2017 at 6.30pm (AU time; NZ TBA). Nickelodeon stars Casey Simpson (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn) and Breanna Yde (Nickelodeon’s School of Rock) join Russell Roberts (The Twilight Saga: New Moon) and newcomers AJ Rivera and Klarke Pipkin in the fantastical adventure about a group of friends whose overnight stay in their town’s new high-tech library turns into a daring, dangerous adventure of escape. The book, originally published in 2013 by Random House Children’s Books, boasts a 109-week run on the New York Times Best-Seller list.


Art Streiber/Nickelodeon

World-renowned gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello (Russell Roberts) has built his latest creation--a new state-of-the-art library filled with whimsical and eccentric rooms, where hardcover books fly kids to shelves in the sky, and massive doors open into fantastical worlds. Kyle Keeley, Lemoncello’s biggest fan, is chosen to be one of the first to experience the fun, along with his best friend Akimi, a bookworm named Sierra (Klarke Pipkin), a goofball named Andrew Peckleman (A.J. Luis Rivera Jr.), his rival Charles Chiltington (Ty Nicolas Consiglio), and others. The kids must use their wits to complete riddles and collect clues that lead them out of this unique playground of imagination. When excitement turns to jeopardy, this world of wonder begins to spiral out of control as literary characters run amok and chaos ensues. It’s up to the kids to make everything right again or else they won’t be the only ones escaping.


Nickelodeon’s original TV movies are a key part of the network’s content mix, creating vehicles for Nickelodeon’s stars to be seen in new and different roles and stories. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library joins Nickelodeon’s original TV movie slate, which includes three upcoming original TV movies--Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie and Tiny Christmas, both set to premiere this fall and Blurt starring Henry Danger’s Jace Norman and internet sensation JoJo Siwa, scheduled to air early 2018.



Join in on the adventure by using #MrLemoncellosLibrary and following Nick AUNZ on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for movie updates and sneak peeks.

Chris Grabenstein’s novels with Random House Children’s Books have more than one million copies in print and hundreds of weeks combined on the New York Times bestseller list. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library has spent over 100 weeks on the bestseller list, received nominations for 42 state award lists, and is published in 19 countries and in 19 languages throughout the world. Grabenstein's additional middle-grade novels include Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Olympics, The Island of Dr. Libris, Welcome to Wonderland: Home Sweet Motel, Welcome to Wonderland: Beach Party Surf Monkey, and the forthcoming third Lemoncello Book, Lemoncello’s Great Library Race, was published on Oct. 10.
