Red Tail Productions LLC and Charlie Blum Entertainment/CB Entertainment, in partnership with Nickelodeon, have announced new Fall/Winter 2019 tour dates for Double Dare Live, a multi-city live stage tour inspired by the iconic TV game show Double Dare!

Coming off of successful fall 2018 and Spring 2019 tours, Double Dare Live – featuring original host Marc Summers and his beloved sidekick Robin Russo – will resume touring on Tuesday, October 15 in Oakland, CA and will tour North America throughout Fall and Winter 2019, playing in 15 North American cities along the way!

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, April 5 at 10:00 a.m. Fans can visit doubledarelivetour.com for a list of upcoming Double Dare Live tour cities, times and ticket information.

Inspired by the iconic TV game show Double Dare, Double Dare Live features two teams comprised of selected audience members competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy physical challenges, and ultimately facing the legendary obstacle course.

Attendees can register to be a contestant on Double Dare Live by completing the Official Rules and Waiver Form on doubledarelivetour.com. Participants must be 10 years or older to be eligible to be Contestants. Only persons 18 years or older can complete the Waiver Form; a parent or legal guardian 18 years or older must complete the Official Rules and Waiver Form for children under 18 years of age. When you’ve read, completed and signed the Waiver Form, hit ‘Submit’ and it will be entered into the database for each city. When you arrive at the venue, go to the Registration Table to verify that you’ve completed Official Rules and Waiver form, and present a valid photo ID and you and any family members that you registered will be given wrist bands which indicate to the show’s host that you are eligible to be a contestant on stage. Please wear athletic shoes if you hope to be called on stage.

Fans can also upgrade their tickets to the DD VIP Experience, featuring premium show seating, a pre-show meet & greet photo opportunity with Marc Summers and Robin Russo, and an official Double Dare Live tour laminate souvenir. There are a limited number of DD VIP Experience tickets which must be purchased in advance. They are designated as ‘VIP Tickets’ in each city’s ticketing system. Purchasers should plan to arrive at the theatre approximately 90 minutes in advance of the show start time. (Check for exact details when you purchase tickets, since timing changes slightly from city to city.) Each adult and child in a group must have a DD VIP Ticket. Go to the check-in table and pick up your DD VIP laminate. Patrons will be directed to the meet & greet which ends approximately 30 minutes prior to show start time. Latecomers risk missing the opportunity.

The highly anticipated return of the Double Dare series premiered in the summer of 2018 on Nickelodeon and ranked as the year’s No. 1 new kids show with kids 6-11, while retaining the core adult audience who grew up with the original television show. The new Double Dare is hosted by digital creator and actress Liza Koshy, with original host Marc Summers providing color commentary on the challenges and lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode. Season two is currently airing on Nickelodeon.

“Hosting the Double Dare Live tour couldn’t be any more exciting, and I look forward to continuing to bring the fun and messiness of ‘Double Dare’ to audiences across the country,” Summers said. “Doing the show again with my sidekick Robin will fulfill childhood dreams of the generation that grew up with us and introduce this classic show to the next generation.”

After the pan-regional success of hit gaming series Noobees, Viacom International Studios (VIS) announced that it has greenlit a second season (60 x 1 hr.) for Nickelodeon Latin America with co-production partner, Barcelona based multimedia communications group, Mediapro Group. The announcement was made by Tatiana Rodríguez, Senior Vice-president of Programming & Creative Strategy for Nickelodeon Latin America and Javier Méndez, Head of Content at Mediapro Group, at the National Association of Television Executives (NATPE) conference in Miami Beach, Florida.

"To be able to extend this production with Mediapro gives us great satisfaction as there are many more stories to be told about the show's avatars, their secret gaming universe and the e-sports tournaments within the show."

Javier Méndez, Content Director of MEDIAPRO added, "We are really proud to announce the second season of this series with Viacom, and we are sure Noobees will keep succeeding with its amazing stories in the e-sports universe".

Nickelodeon Iberia to Premiere 'Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty' on Monday 3rd June 2019


Share it: #RBUK

Magic and mischief await in the whimsical world of Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty (RBUK), premiering on Nickelodeon Iberia on Monday 3rd June 2019 at 18:30 on Nickelodeon Portugal and at 19:30 on Nickelodeon Spain (España)! Following launch, fans can catch more all new episodes of RBUK weekdays at 18:30 on Nick Portugal and at 19:30 on Nick España.

Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty is locally titled La gata mariposa unicornio arcoíris in Spain and Gatinha Arco-Íris Borboleta Unicórnio in Portugal.

Created and produced by California-based toy and entertainment company Funrise, Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty follows the comedic adventures of a spirited and adorable kitty named Felicity who possesses special transformative powers.

Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty centers around a spirited and adorable kitty named Felicity who acquires magical and majestic powers. Part rainbow, part butterfly, part unicorn and 100 percent kitty, Felicity has transformative powers where she can lasso items in the form of a full-fledged rainbow, shoot glow sticks from her paws, fire lasers from her unicorn horn, stretch and snap in rainbow mode, and clap thunderously with her butterfly wings. Together with her best friend Miguel, an energetic dog, she’s ready to take on every challenge that comes with living in the magical mashup world of Mythlandia, which is inhabited by fairy tale creatures, wizards, giants, dragons and more.

In the series premiere of Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty, “Purrfect Party/Anubis Newbie,” Felicity worries that her powers won't measure up at a party for the most powerful and popular citizens in Mythlandia. Also in the episode, an ancient Anubis king tests Miguel to see if he's ready to leave Mythlandia and become the next ruler of the underworld.

Nickelodeon has acquired the global rights to Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty. The series made its Nickelodeon debut on Nick USA on Sunday 27th January 2019. Following its U.S. launch, the series will roll out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks across 170+ countries and territories later this year.

Fans can visit Nick.es and Nick.pt as well as like the official Nickelodeon España and Nickelodeon Portugal Facebook (ES | PT) and follow Nickelodeon on Twitter (ES | PT) and Instagram (ES | PT) pages for the latest Nickelodeon news and highlights.

Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty season one consists of fifty-two 11 minute episodes and a half hour TV special.

The comprehensive toy line includes innovative role play toys, toys with surprise reveals, collectible bobble head figures, action figures and playsets, plush and more, and will launch at major retailers this fall.
