Nickelodeon Orders 100 Things to Do Before High School
Nickelodeon has ordered 26 episodes of “100 Things to Do Before High School.” Read on for more details about the story.
According to Deadline, Nickelodeon orders 26 episodes of “100 Things to Do Before High School.” It is the network’s newest addition to its live-action comedy series. The 30-minute single-camera series is produced by Big Time Rush creator and executive producer Scott Fellows. The series will begin shooting in Los Angeles in the fall.
Fellows is a staff writer for the comedy animated series, “The Fairly Odd Parents,” and has also created and produced DHX Media’s “Johnny Test” and “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.”
The “100 Things to Do” will follow the journey of three best friends as they experience the highs and lows of middle school with the help of a “bucket list” to overcome class cliques, bullies and clueless teachers.
CJ Parker (Isabela Moner) has little time left to make the most of her middle school year. Determined to make most out of her time, together with her two lifelong best friends Crispo (Owen Joyner) and Fenwick (Jaheem Toombs), the gang follows a never-ending list of challenges for a guide.
Nickelodeon is a television network owned by MTV Networks Kids & Family Group, whose programs are mostly aimed at children and adolescents ages 8–16, with programs consisting of animated and live-action series. Currently, it airs “SpongeBob Square Pants,” “The Penguins of Madagascar,” “The Legend of Korra,” “The Fairly Odd Parents,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Sanjay and Craig” for its animated series and “Power Rangers Megaforce,” “Every Witch Way,” “The Thundermans” and “The Haunted Hathaways” for its live-action series. It also has shows aimed at preschoolers, such as “Team Umizoomi,” “Dora the Explorer” and “Peter Rabbit.”
The “100 Things to Do Before High School’s” order came after Nickelodeon‘s SVP Live-Action Development Brian Wright’s departure. The upcoming live-action series is the latest addition to its live-action play, along with “Henry Danger” and “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn” — both premieres in September — and “Bella and the Bulldogs.”
