Nickelodeon USA Launches Official "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn" Show Website

To celebrate and promote Nickelodeon USA starting to premiere and show the networks brand-new original comedy series "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn" soon as part of their Fall (Autumn) 2014 programming highlights, Nick.com has launched the channels official "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn" show website, which you can visit here at nick.com/shows/nicky-ricky-dicky-and-dawn!


Nick USA's official NRD&D website, nick.com/nrdd features a 'About' webpage featuring information about Nick's all-new sitcom, a 'Meet the Harpers' photo gallery featuring pictures of the Harper family, a exclusive online streaming video featuring Nickelodeon USA's first teaser trailer for their brand-new show, and Nickelodeon's official message board/forum, where fans can talk about Nick's upcoming show!

For the Harper family, four heads are definitely better than one. Siblings Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn have almost nothing in common, besides their birthdays and their parents. Being quadruplets means four times the fun and four times the drama! Sibling rivalry runs deep in this family, but this quad squad can solve any problem when they work together. At the end of the day, it's all about love. "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn", greenlit for 13 episodes, is the story of a 10-year-old girl Dawn Harper (Lizzy Greene), a born leader whose sibling rivalry with her three brothers is heightened by the fact that they are quadruplets who have wildly different personalities. Aidan Gallagher ("Modern Family") plays the germaphobic Nicky Harper, joined by Casey Simpson ("The Goldbergs") as the overachieving and unbelievably smart Ricky Harper, and Mace Coronel ("Bold and the Beautiful") as the pint-sized ladies man, Dicky Harper. Brian Stepanek ("Two and a Half Men") and Allison Munn ("What I Like About You") star as the Harper parents. Even though they seem different on the outside, there couldn't be a more tight-knit group. The series is created by Matt Fleckenstein ("Wendell & Vinnie", "iCarly", "Victorious") and executive produced by Fleckenstein and Michael Feldman ("See Dad Run"). Are you ready for a fantastic foursome?

The casting and auditioning news websites Television Show Auditions and CastingCallHub.com are reporting the very exciting Nickelodeon News that Nickelodeon and Uptown Productions recently produced a pilot episode for a potential brand-new Nickelodeon comedy television series called "100 Things...

Galvanized by a dream, she wants to take chances and be free, and fearing that if she stays on her current stuffy path she will be incapable of letting loose and truly enjoying her four years of high school, and that high school will prove to be a miserable four years marked only by tedious homework, no social life and no friends, C.J. and her friends make a pact and a list of 100 things that they want to experience before her time as a high school student begins.

Two-time Daytime Emmy Awards nominee Jonathan Judge directed the pilot episode of "100 Things...To Do Before High School" from a script written by Primetime Emmy Award nominee Scott Fellows, who also executive produced.

Nickelodeon's "Legend of Korra: Book Three" Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 News Round-Up

Below are some of the highlights and "Legend of Korra" news unveiled at Nickelodeon's "Legend of Korra: Book Three" panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014:


* Following the news that Nickelodeon USA will be debuting the remaining episodes of "Book Three: Change" digitally and will roll each all-new episode out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning Friday 1st August 2014, as well as on platforms such as Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox Video and Hulu, Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino, the creators of "The Legend of Korra", reassured fans by setting the record straight about the shift to digital platforms during their San Diego Comic-Con 2014 panel.

"It's part of this huge sea change in the industry," Konietzko says. "Things have changed just for us between when we did "Avatar: [The Last Airbender]"... and when we came back on the air in 2012 [with "Legend of Korra"]. When 'Book One: Air' of 'Korra' came out, it did pretty good numbers on TV but its online numbers were just insane."

"Legend of Korra's" numbers have been down on Nickelodeon for "Book 3," but Konietzko says that they've only grown on Nick.com, the official Nickelodeon app (the Nick App) and on streaming services. The "Book 2" finale, for example, was the biggest digital hit on the channel's official website of the year, which could be what convinced Nickelodeon to have the show live online.

Konietzko says it's no secret that the channel has "had kind of a hard time fitting it into their programming." The shift "definitely caught us by surprise. It wasn't necessarily done in the smoothest way," he adds. But the show is definitively not canceled, which is good news for fans. DiMartino says the rest of the season won't change when the final episodes air every Friday from 1st to Friday 22nd August 2014, when Nick USA will premiere the one-hour two-part "Book 3: Change" finale online.

"It really has no effect on what the show is or what the stories we're telling [are]," DiMartino says. "Other than it not being on the Nickelodeon main channel, nothing has changed."

Following their conversation about the shift to digital, the cast and creators of "The Legend of Korra" treated attendees of their SDCC 2014 panel by playing a never-before-seen "Book 3" episode, episode 8, titled "The Terror Within", which has been written by Josh Hamilton, ahead of its premiere on Nick USA TONIGHT at 8:00pm (ET/PT).

* The panel talked about how "Korra has come to understand that she may be the Avatar but that doesn't mean she can do her job alone";

* Janet Varney, the voice of Korra, also mentioned that she knows some fans are frustrated with Korra but she's growing on her journey. "I'm proud of her";

* Seychelle Gabriel, the voice of Asami, talked about how she loves the Korra/Asami friendship (and how awkward it is for Mako). "Any time two girls can not let a guy get between them is a good thing." The panel also joked about how David Faustino (Mako) sat between Janet and Seychelle;

* The panel also noted that "Korra has come to understand that she may be the Avatar but that doesn't mean she can do her job alone", and that Varrick is the bridge between the modern world and the magical Avatar world;

* According to John Michael Higgins, the voice of Varrick, Rupert Murdoch + Thomas Edison + Bozo the clown = Varrick;

* Fans will learn a bit about Varrick's childhood in an upcoming episode;

* The panel mentioned that "our characters are somewhat similar to ourselves";

* Dee Bradley Baker, the voices of Tarrlok, Naga and Pabu in "The Legend of Korra", joined the panel as a special guest and sung "Secret Tunnel" from "Avatar: The Last Airbender" with the voice cast of "Korra", who sung in their character voices (video);

* The panel answered questions posed by DiMartino from fans, such as "How would you rate Korra's job as the Avatar?", "What’s the voice acting process?", "How have you seen Korra and Asami's relationship develop?", and "What's your favorite part about voicing Lin?"

* The panel then showed some images from "Book 3", starting with character art. Boomju was featured with one of Bumi's sweater on him. The first concept piece of Zaheer was shown as well, which Bryan mentioned that he wanted something that doesn't look like Tarrlok, cause Unalaq did, along with another concept art of the same character, then expression sheets with and without his hair. The panel also revealed that Zaheer was will be bald for the rest of the season, and that Zaheer's ears have damage from the fighting he's been doing over the years. Next up was Ghazan's concept art and expression sheets, Bryan mentions that he likes designing characters with tattoos. Ming-Hua was up next along with her expression sheets. Last up was P’Li , who looks a bit more punk in her concept designs. The panel revealed that P'li's design was inspired by Lisbeth Salander;

* More art was shown with some characters in funny situations: Winter costume designs for the Red Lotus. Christmas sweaters, including a reindeer sweater, and garb and Team Zaheer as a metal band (the picture was by Ki Hyun Ryu). Next up was the concept art from Suyin and her family. Also shown was Baatar and Opal turn sheets and expressions, Wei and Wing with flip hair parts (Wing has the part on the left, WEi on the right), and a picture of Su-yen in the circus;

* Next up was some pencil test footage from Studio Mir. Shown was Zaheer's escape scene, shown next to the final animations. Upnext was Eska and Desna's fight against the rogue Waterbender–again, very interesting to see how it changed from pencils to final animation. Next up was Zuko fighting. The final scene shown was Kya versus Zaheer at Air Temple Island in Republic City. The last and final test showed a fight yet to be seen, where Team Avatar faLin showcased some Earthbending against Zaheer, who appears to effortlessly airbend the earth away. The President of Studio Mir was in the audience, and line tests were also shown. Additionally, the panel also showcased "Korra" fan art from a previous Korra Nation contest.

* To close out the panel, they gave one last sneak peek and lamented that "this will probably be the last big [San Diego Comic-Con] Korra panel", according to Konietzko, but they could be at the New York Comic-Con, which could hint at Book 4 is coming early-mid 2015.

UPDATE (7/27) - IGN Live's Greg Miller and Marty Sliva sat down with Platinum Games' producer Atshushi Kurooka, game director Eiro Shirahama and Activision producer Robert Conkey for a special panel discussion at this year's San Diego Comic-Con to talk about their upcoming "The Legend of Korra" Video Game, a downloadable third-person combat game due to be released during Fall/Autumn 2014 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3, which you can watch in the online streaming video clip below.

In the video, which also includes demo gameplay footage, the panel reveals information about Nickelodeon's TLoK game, including:

* As showcased in the video, players can attack, block, dodge, counter-attack and string together combos in fast-paced, anime-style action sequences;

* The game will feature mini-games to break up the fighting sequences, such as Pro-Bend, based on the official sport of "Book 1", Pro-Bending, and will feature Korra, Mako and Bolin;

* The single-player game will have three modes (difficulties); normal mode for fans of Platinum Games' games, causal mode for fans of "Korra", and extreme mode;

* The game is about four hours long but is designed to be replayed at least three times over in order to unlock new gear, new skills and master the techniques necessary to beat the game on its hardest difficulty setting;

* The game's story takes place between Book 2 and 3;

* There’s a battle arena mode based on a sub-plot from the TV show that will keep players coming back for more;

* the game controls;

* Platinum Games and Activision worked closely with the production staff of "Legend of Korra" to ensure that the game will be as authentic as possible;

* If there's a sequel, Platinum Games and Activision would like to see it sold in shops instead of it being a downloadable title;

* "The Legend of Korra" game will feature a mysterious villain!:

A Platinum "Real Ghostbusters" video game would be great, by the way!

First Look At "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water"

The American national daily newspaper USA Today has unveiled a exclusive first-look at Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures' upcoming brand-new "SpongeBob SquarePants" movie, "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water"!

In the still from the film, below, Nickelodeon's iconic animated character SpongeBob SquarePants and his pals have come out of the water and have hit the beach!

In this exclusive first look at the upcoming movie "SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water", due to be released on Friday 13th February 2015, the main cast get a new "real world" look once they leave their animated sea city of Bikini Bottom.

In Nick and Paramount's "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water", the team start in their usual animated world. Then late in the movie they transform to CG-animated superheroes to fight off a menace endangering their beloved Bikini Bottom - SpongeBob SquarePants becomes The Invincibubble, Patrick Star turns into Mr. Superawesomeness, Squidward Tentacles is Sour Note and Mr. Krabs turns into Sir Pinch-A-Lot.

The Avengers-type group of superheroes then need to deal with the threat of Antonio Banderas, who plays a villainous pirate in the movie.

The "Sponge Out of Water" crew will be at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 on Thursday 24th July 2014 to show off the new-look superhero characters and footage from the movie. It is speculated that Nickelodeon will also unveil the first trailer for "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" at SDCC.

Additionally, USA Today have also unveiled a exclusive interview with Tom Kenny, the iconic voice of SpongeBob SquarePants, and Paul Tibbit, the director of the movie, in which they talk about Nickelodeon's upcoming brand-new SBSP film, which you can read below:

The classic underwater animated character SpongeBob SquarePants has come out of the water at last. He's hitting the beach — and he's buff to boot.

In this exclusive first look at the upcoming movie SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water (due out Feb. 13, 2015) the main cast gets a new "real" look once they leave their animated sea city of Bikini Bottom.

"It's a bold new world where no Sponge has gone before. I'm still getting used to it," says Tom Kenny, who has voiced SpongeBob for 17 years. "You've seen someone in a certain way for so long... It's just really different."

The character's zany personality remains the same in this second movie installment for the long-running Nickelodeon television franchise — Kenny still voices SpongeBob even with his new look which comes late in the movie.

"It's not like SpongeBob has gone through any personality rewiring, there's no reboot. Daniel Craig will not be voicing him," says Kenny. "It's just a very different likeness."

The team start in their usual animated world. Then they transform to computer graphic superheroes to fight off a menace endangering beloved Bikini Bottom.

Patrick Star turns into Mr. Superawesomeness, SpongeBob Squarepants becomes The Invincibubble, Squidward Tentacles is Sour Note and Mr. Krabs turns into Sir Pinch-A-Lot.

"It's the big climax of the movie," says director Paul Tibbit. "They all come to shore in our world. And they transform themselves into an Avengers-type team to do battle. Their world is in jeopardy."

Not that they look to be a serious crime fighting team going forward.

"I don't know if these guys could take out Thor and The Hulk, but they might give them a run for their money," says Tibbit.

The group needs to deal with the threat of Antonio Banderas, who plays a villainous pirate in the movie. "He's got a great comedy touch," says Kenny. "And we've seen him in Zorro. He really knows how to swash a buckle. If there were pirates today, he would definitely pass as one."

The Sponge Out of Water crew will be at Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday to show off the new-look superhero characters and footage from the movie.

Kenny believes fans will be excited. He's ready for some shocked reactions too.

"There a thin line between a riot and a paroxysm of joy," he says. "Either way, it's Comic-Con and it's always good to have your escape route planned."

The Pizza Thrower was developed by Syyn Labs, a Los Angeles-based organization that fuses the worlds of technology and interactive sciences with artistic mediums to design and construct visually dynamic spectacles that inspire thought and provoke conversation. For the Pizza Thrower, the construction began on the chassis of a two-decade old pick-up truck. Using a mix of molded box steel tube and fiber glass reinforced plywood for the tank-like structure along with an array of gizmos and gadgets, the developers engineered not only a visually stunning vehicle, but also a functional pizza throwing unit.
