Original Nickelodeon Nederland Press Release:

Nieuwe show: Nick in de Box!

De nieuwe spelshow ‘Nick in de Box’ belooft 45 minuten bomvol actie te worden...

Anouk Maas, Iris Hesseling en Bart Boonstra, presenteren de nieuwste spelshow van Nickelodeon, “Nick in de Box”. Twee teams met kinderen zullen hun uiterste best moeten doen om de prijzen, die in kluizen zitten, te bemachtigen. Om sleutels te winnen gaan de teams moeilijke uitdagingen aan, zoals het eten van een niet bepaald lekkere “traktatie” of het oplossen van een modderbadpuzzel. Met de bemachtigde sleutels kunnen ze dan de kluizen open maken en hun prijzen pakken. Het is een race tegen de klok, een dapperheidstest en vooral: een spelshow voor kinderen vol met actie.

De première van “Nick in de Box” is te zien op 28 september om 09:00 uur op Nickelodeon. Een show voor alle kijkers die niet kunnen wachten om te zien hoeveel gekkigheid er in een simpele ‘box’ kan gebeuren...

Nickelodeon Netherlands To Premiere "Breadwinners" On Monday 29th September 2014

Prepare to LOAF out loud! Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland) has announced the exciting Nickelodeon International news in the following press release, from Nick Netherlands' online press office, that Nickelodeon Netherlands will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new bread-tastic original animated buddy comedy series (Nicktoon) "Breadwinners", locally titled "Broodschappers", everyday at 5:35pm (17:35) from Monday 29th September 2014!


Nick's brand-new animated comedy "Breadwinners" is an original production from the Nickelodeon Animation Studio that follows SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two hilarious ducks who operate a bread delivery service out of their jet-fueled, Rocket Van, feeding hungry beaks everywhere.

Throughout the series SwaySway, the upbeat leader of the flock and his loyal best friend Buhdeuce go on riduckulous adventures together. From eating a loaf of 'Stank Bread' and getting lost on the lower yeastside, to record-beaking attempts for most bread deliveries in one day, nothing will stop this duo from making a delivery all while shaking their tail feathers.

The series has been so popular that Nickelodeon recently ordered a 20-episode second season of "Breadwinners". Famous fans of "Breadwinners" include Bread Pitt, Ryan Seacrust and Moby Duck.

Although currently unconfirmed, it is expected that other localised Nickelodeon channels across Northern Europe will also start to debut Nick's brand-new Nicktoon "Breadwinners" around the same time.

Original Nickelodeon Nederland Press Release:

Nieuwe show: Broodschappers!

Dé tekenfilmhit vol humor, muziek en aanstekelijke energie komt nu ook naar Nederland!

Nickelodeon breidt de programmering uit! De gloednieuwe & originele animatieserie: "Broodschappers" volgt twee te gekke eenden die brood leveren met hun razend coole raket-bus!

Binnenkort kun je 20 afleveringen lang de avonturen volgen van de beste vrienden SwaySway en Buhdeuce, broodleveranciers van hongerige eenden overal ter wereld! Deze vrienden voor het leven wonen samen, lachen samen, en maken heel wat maffe avonturen mee!

Bekijk Broodschappers vanaf 29 september elke dag om 17:35 uur op Nickelodeon

De serie werd gecreëerd door Steve Borst en Gary Di Raffaele, en ontstond uit het "Animated Shorts Program" van 2012.

De show is op het lijf geschreven van deze generatie kids: de inspiratie kwam zowel uit klassieke vriendschapshumor, als uit de huidige gaming, internet en muziekcultuur. De wereld is klaar om dit eendenduo te ontdekken dat gewoon zingt zoals ze gebekt zijn! "Stinkbrood" eten, verdwaald raken in de broodmijnen of het record van brood bezorgen elke dag verbreken; niets weerhoudt deze eenden van het vervullen van hun broodnodige taak!

De serie is zo populair dat een tweede seizoen alvast in de maak is...

*Beroemde fans van "Broodschappers"

Blair Waldkorn, Bread Pitt, Ryan Seacrust en Moby Duck zijn al fan! Nu jij nog...

Nickelodeon Australia To Premiere "The Legend of Korra" Book 3 In October 2014; Book 4 In January/February 2015

The entertainment news website IGN UK is reporting in the following article the very exciting Nickelodeon International News that Nickelodeon Australia has announced that Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand is planning to start to premiere and show "The Legend of Korra" Book Four, the fourth and final season of Nickelodeon's hit original animated series (Nicktoon), in January and February 2015!

Additionally, Nick AU/NZ has also announced that the Australian and Kiwi version of the world's number one kids' channel will start to premiere season 3 of the show, titled "Book Three: Change", sometime in October 2014!


Both seasons will screen on Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand but will also be made available in full on day one through Foxtel Go and Anytime services, with iTunes following shortly after.

It is currently unknown when Nickelodeon USA will premiere "Legend of Korra" Book 4, however, it is speculated Nick USA will start to debut Book 4 around the same time, as Bryan Konietzko, co-creator of "The Legend of Korra", suggested during Nickelodeon's "Korra" panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 that the show will have a presence at the New York Comic-Con. It is also currently speculated that Book 4 will be titled "Balance", however, the "Legend of Korra" news has yet to be confirmed.

From IGN:
THE LEGEND OF KORRA BOOK 3 & 4 AU RELEASE DATE REVEALED

After a hiatus, The Legend of Korra will return to Australian screens.

The Legend of Korra fans will be pleased to hear the show's final season is only a few months away with a Nickelodeon representative telling IGN Book 4 will premiere in Australia in January/February 2015.

Nickelodeon also said Season 3 of the show, titled 'Book Three: Change', will premiere sometime in October.

Both seasons will screen on Nickelodeon but will also be made available in full on day one through Foxtel Go and Anytime services, with iTunes following shortly after.

Nickelodeon Australia's decision to distribute the show through multiple platforms is similar to how the latter half of the show's third season was distributed in the US via Amazon, Xbox Video, Hulu, Google Play and Nickelodeon's own on-site streaming service, after the show was abruptly taken off-air mid-season.

"The Legend of Korra" Video Game Release Dates Announced; TLoK Stars And Creators Talk About Book 3 And Book 4

In a exclusive video interview with the entertainment news website IGN UK, below, Activision producer Robert Conkey has announced that Platinum Games and Activision will release their highly anticipated brand-new downloadable video game based on Nickelodeon's popular original fantasy steampunk-themed animated series (Nicktoon) "The Legend of Korra" on Tuesday 21st October 2014 on PlayStation Network and PC, and on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 on the Xbox Marketplace! Conkey also discusses working with Nickelodeon voice actors Janet Varney, David Faustino and P.J. Byrne on the game, talks about what it would take for Activision to continue with additional Legend of Korra games, and demonstrates the games new pro-bending mode.


Additionally, IGN has also unveiled video interviews with "Korra" stars Janet Varney (voice of Korra) and David Faustino (voice of Mako) were also on hand, along with show creators Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino, to discuss the game, the epic finale of "Book Three: Change", and what's ahead in "Book 4", which you can also watch in the online streaming video clips below!

Game Interview With Activision's Robert Conkey:

In the video below, Conkey reveals to IGN the Korra release date and pro-bending mode. He also discusses working with Janet Varney, David Faustino, and P.J. Byrne on the game and talks about what it would take for Activision to continue with additional Legend of Korra games:



New Game Mode (Pro-Bending):

Take a look at a demo of the pro-bending mode below.



Book 4, Book 3 Finale and Game Interview with Korra Creators Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino:

Konietzko and DiMartino discuss the game, the emotional Book 3 finale, airbender antics, Zaheer's remarkable bending skills and ultimate defeat, the devastated state that Korra was left in, and where things are headed for Team Avatar from here in the video below.



Hypeable notes:
According to Mike DiMartino, who heads the show's writing team, The Legend of Korra was structured "around Korra's big sacrificial moment of saving the Air Nation and giving her that really big heroic moment. But," he notes, "it definitely came at a big price – a big cost to her emotionally and physically."

"It's a bittersweet victory for Korra," DiMartino observes. In Book 4, he says, Korra will have "some recovering to do."

The co-creators also address the unprecedented intensity and drama of Book 3.

"There were some discussions [with Nickelodeon] about how far we could take it," DiMartino admits, discussing the euphemistic language the show had to employ to avoid words like "death" or "killed."

But "we weren't just trying to do it because we like doing mean things to our characters. We had to back Zaheer's talk up with this very serious action."

Though fans were intrigued by Zaheer and the Red Lotus, the co-creators don't intend to set up the lone survivor as Korra's nemesis for Book 4.

"He's not dead," Konitezko confirms, "but we do have a new threat and a new enemy for Korra to face."

"But it all ties in… to Book 3," he teases.

Similarly, fans can expect to see "the residual effects" of Tenzin's new mandate for the airbenders in Book 4. As a wide-scale peacekeeping force, the Air Nation can take some of the burden of maintaining balance off of Korra's shoulders – though many fans question whether or not Korra will welcome this change.

Konietzko and DiMartino also speak about the upcoming Legend of Korra video game, which they considered a "fun, rewarding and positive" experience. With a story written by staff writer Tim Hedrick and "an awesome new villain," the co-creators seem just as eager as fans to get their hands on the new downloadable game.
Korra Stars Janet Varney and David Faustino Discuss Book 3 and 4:

Varney and Faustino talk about where we found their characters at the close of Book 3, the challenges ahead for Korra and her team, as well as the various couples that fans - and they themselves - root for in the video below.
