Nickelodeon also secured extensive online content for the series, consisting of 26 half-hours, about an ordinary teenage girl Alex (Emily Robins) who discovers she actually has magical powers and, in a parallel universe, she is the heiress to the throne.
"The Elephant Princess" will premiere on Nickelodeon in the U.K. in the spring before starting its international rollout. The series is produced by Jonathan M. Shiff, whose "H20 -- Just Add Water" about Australian teen mermaids, was a hit for both Nickelodeon and ZDF Enterprises.
