Nickelodeon Orders '100 Things to Do' Comedy From 'Big Time Rush' Creator
Nickelodeon has greenlighted a new live-action comedy from Big Time Rush creator Scott Fellows.
The half-hour single-camera series 100 Things to Do Before High School has received a 26-episode order from the kids' cable network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
100 Things to Do follows three best friends as they navigate the highs and lows of middle school, with the help of a bucket list of adventures that help them overcome class cliques, terrifying bullies and clueless teachers. Isabela Moner, Jaheem Toombs and Owen Joyner star. Production begins in Los Angeles this fall.
The series joins an original live-action slate at Nickelodeon that includes Henry Danger; Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn; and Bella and the Bulldogs. Henry Danger and Nicky, Ricky premiere in September. News of the 100 Things to Do pickup comes two weeks after Sam & Cat's quiet cancellation surfaced.
“Crossing that bridge into high school is a milestone and a journey filled with taking chances, expressing yourself and building friendships,” said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s president of content development and production. “Kids will be able to relate to this coming-of-age comedy that embodies that crazy and sometimes magical time in their lives.”
Fellows created and produced Nickelodeon's hit series Big Time Rush, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and Johnny Test. He also was a writer on The Fairly OddParents. He is repped by APA and Ginsburg Daniels.
