Nickelodeon picks up two comedy pilots

Cable network greenlights 'Supah Ninja,' 'Everyday Kid'

Nickelodeon has picked up two comedy pilots: the single-camera "Supah Ninja" and multicamera "Everyday Kid."

"Ninja," which revolves around ninja kids in high school, hails from producer Brian Robbins and his Varsity Pictures. It was written by Eric Garcia and Leo Chu, with contributions from Andy Bobrow ("Samantha Who?").

Robbins has longtime ties to Nick going back to his partnership with Michael Tollin in Tollin/Robbins, which was behind network hits "The Amanda Show" and "The Nick Cannon Show."

"Everyday," from "The Simpsons" writer-producer Steve Tompkins, centers on a boy who awakes each morning with a different superpower.

The orders follow Nick's November pickup of another comedy pilot, "Summer Camp," which is in contention for a series order.
