Nickelodeon Renews 'Henry Danger,' 'Nicky,' Adds Pair of Pilots
Nickelodeon is firming up its 2015 plans.
The kid-focused cable network has renewed two live-action series and ordered two pilots, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Coming back for second seasons are Henry Danger as well as Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, with fellow live-action pilots The Dunes Club and Future Shock receiving the pilot green light.
Henry Danger and Nicky — as well as returning hits The Thundermans and The Haunted Hathaways — rank as the top four rated live-action shows among kids ages 6-11.
“Each new pilot exemplifies what we look for as we continue to build our live-action slate — relatable concepts with unique voices, bold, breakout characters and fresh humor with heart,” said Nickelodeon president of content development and production Russell Hicks. “Our greatest hits that have stood the test of time have always been creator-driven kid stories told from showrunners who understand the Nick brand, and we’re excited that Henry Danger and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn have connected with our audience in such a strong way.”
Here's more on the two pilots:
The Dunes Club (working title)
Set in a high-end beach club, an unlikely friendship forms between a sheltered, privileged boy and a street-smart local girl who takes a job for the summer to earn extra cash. The pilot is created by Heather Flanders (Undateable, Lab Rats) and will begin production in January.
Future Shock (working title)
Created by Mitchel Katlin and Nat Bernstein (See Dad Run), two brothers get the shock of their lives when a girl from the future accidentally transports them with their mom to the year 2070. The pilot will begin production in January.
