Aria Brooks Talks 'All That', 'Harriet', 'Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings' and More

Aria Brooks is unquestionably a rising star in the midst of #younghollywood. This muti-talented Atlanta-native has been perusing her passions, singing and acting, since she was six-years-old. Fast-forward and Brooks is beginning to accumulate a diverse professional resume that includes titles such as Harriet, the Netflix series, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, the Nickelodeon variety show, All That among others.


Recently, BCKOnline had the opportunity to sit down with this incredible talent for a one-on-one exclusive interview. Check out what she had to say!

BCKOnline: What made you want to start acting?

Aria Brooks: I started acting because both of my parents are performing arts educators. It was something I grew up around. I would always sit at work with my mom and at one point, she was my teacher. The things I saw her do really inspired me to perform in general.

BCKOnline: To you, what is the most difficult thing about being an actress?

Aria Brooks: The most difficult thing is definitely having to fit “the look”. It was hard to accept that I may not get a job because I’m too dark, or my hair is too short. I eventually realized that what God has for you is for you and it will happen when the time is right.

BCKOnline: You are a series regular on Nickelodeon’s All That. Tell us about the show. How is doing sketch comedy different from your other roles?

Aria Brooks: All of my other roles are dramatic, so sketch comedy has been a completely different experience. Before I had to be centered but now, I have to turn up my energy and really go crazy with these characters. It has been fun so far, but it is still challenging at times.


BCKOnline: Tell us about your project, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings. What have you learned working alongside seasoned actresses such as Delta Burke, Julianne Hough, Kathleen Turner, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley?

Aria Brooks: Because Heartstrings is an anthology series, I did not have the chance to work with those amazing actors, but their performances were wonderful. I did get a chance to work with Sarah Shahi, Rochelle Aytes, Jessica Collins and Tammy Lynn Michaels. They really showed me how to be professional on set and they were very helpful and nice to me. I’ll never forget that experience and I’m very appreciative of the opportunity.


BCKOnline: What is the one thing that you have learned about yourself as an actress in Hollywood?

Aria Brooks: I have learned that it’s not fun and games all the time. Yes, it is a fun job, but I still have to be serious and work hard. Sometimes that may require staying up late or staying at the studio a little later. It’s a huge commitment, but it’s still a lot of fun.

BCKOnline: What advice would you give other kids that want to break into acting?

Aria Brooks: I would say to be grateful for whatever you are given. Even if you don’t have a big part in a movie or you get a role in a student film, it is still an opportunity for more experience and networking.

BCKOnline: Who would be your dream on screen collaboration and why?

Aria Brooks: My dream on-screen collaboration would be with Zendaya. She is my favorite performer and I’ve looked up to her for years. She is a triple threat and is consistently working. I also aspire to have her work ethic.

BCKOnline: What is your favorite TV show/movie?

Aria Brooks: My favorite TV show is This Is Us and my favorite movie is Tall Girl.

BCKOnline: What are some things that you like to do in your free time?

Aria Brooks: I like baking, singing, dancing, making TikToks, and watching Brat TV and Netflix.

BCKOnline: What do you see for your career in the future?

Aria Brooks: I see myself consistently filming and going to events. I am not in it for the fame. The work is why I do what I do. I want to continue to work on my craft and be satisfied with the finished product.

I cannot wait to see what is next for Aria. I have no doubt that it is going to be amazing!

Catch Aria on All That, Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT), only on Nickelodeon!

Nutz Productions Set to Shoot 'Sky', a New Adventure Tween Drama Series; to Air on TeenNick Israel

Nutz Productions set to shoot Sky, a new adventure tween drama series by the creator of Greenhouse Academy

JANUARY 16, 2020


Filming on Sky (2 seasons, 20x22’ – Nutz Productions), a new adventure drama from the creator and producers of Nickelodeon Israel's The Greenhouse and Netflix's Greenhouse Academy – Giora Chamizer and Nutz Productions – together with writer Noa Pnini, will begin in February 2020 on various locations sites all over Israel.

Sky tells the story of a smart and assertive alien girl with the same name, whose spaceship accidentally crashes in a small town on earth. While waiting to be rescued, she hides by transforming herself into the body of the most popular girl in high school. With only three goofy friends to help her out, Sky must survive two weeks on earth without being discovered. Alongside the suspenseful dramatic plot, the general air of the show is whimsical and funny.

Sky is set to air on TeenNick Israel, the Nickelodeon-branded tweens-and-teens channel that launched in 2017, via the Hot Cable Network and Yes Satellite network. A premiere date has yet to be announced.

Giora Chamizer is responsible for some of the most successful young-adult TV Dramas in Israel. He has created and written several hit teen dramas, among them the popular show Hahamama (The Greenhouse). The series, produced by Nutz Productions and aired on Nickelodeon Israel, was voted best teen show by the Israeli Academy of Film and Television. Netflix later remade it under the title The Greenhouse Academy, with Chamizer acting as the series' showrunner and Nutz Productions producing all seasons in Israel. The American adaptation was launched successfully in over 190 countries, and a third season aired in October this year. Season 4 is set to launch in 2020. Chamizer is also responsible for The Hood, which debuted on Nickelodeon in Israel and has also been sold to the Portuguese RTP2 channel, which premiered the series in 2016 under the title O Bairro.

Noa Pnini is a screenwriter and actor. In recent years Pnini has collaborated with Giora Chamizter on various TV projects, among them The Hood, The Greenhouse, House Arrest and Foxes.

Nutz Productions is the subsidiary production arm of Ananey Communications Group.

Nutz Productions, the subsidiary production arm of Ananey Communications Group, is currently in the midst of producing Spyders (formally titled The Covurts), the first original co-production between Nickelodeon International and the Israeli production studio — together with Israeli cable network HOT.

Spyders focuses on Anna and Noah Fisher, highly highly skilled undercover agents who work for a ECCO – Environmental Counter Crime Organization, and are tasked with fighting criminals who endanger nature or the environment. Little do they know that their three kids – Daniel (16), Nikki (15) and Tommy (12) – have discovered their secret occupation and have formed a task force of their own, named Spyders.

Nickelodeon has ordered 40 x 22-minute episodes, which will be distributed to Nickelodeon's international audiences spanning 170+ countries and territories via the brand’s more than 100 channels and branded blocks in 2020.

Ananey Communications Group represents the Viacom brands Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Teen Nick, MTV and Comedy Central in Israel.

From TVKIDS:

New Tween Drama for Teen Nick Israel

Sky, a tween drama series from Nutz Productions and creator Giora Chamizer, is slated to bow on Teen Nick Israel later this year.

Sky tells the story of the titular alien girl, whose spaceship accidentally crashes in a small town on Earth. As she waits to be rescued, she transforms into the body of the most popular girl in high school to disguise herself. With the help of her trio of goofy friends, Sky must survive two weeks on Earth without being discovered.

Chamizer and Nutz Productions previously teamed up for Hahamama (The Greenhouse), which was remade for Netflix as The Greenhouse Academy, with Chamizer acting as the series’ showrunner and Nutz Productions producing all seasons in Israel. The U.S. adaptation has launched in over 190 countries. Season four is set to launch in 2020.

From Kidscreen:

How the creator of Greenhouse Academy is building binge-worthy kids TV

The man behind several popular Hebrew-language tween adventure shows, and Netflix's Greenhouse Academy, explains why his new series Sky will engage eight to 14s globally.

The creator of Netflix’s tween drama series Greenhouse Academy, and several popular Hebrew-language series, Giora Chamizer, is aiming to grow his reach with another internationally successful show.

Using his formula of blending dense stories, twists, cliffhangers and complex themes—which has helped him to create popular series on low-budgets, retain viewers and catch the eye of global SVODs—Chamizer is readying another project for Israeli viewers, with his sights set on reaching worldwide audiences again. Sky, a tween-skewing live-action series, produced by Ananey Communications-owned Nutz Productions, is gearing up shoot the show across Israel, starting in February.

Chamizer is writing the new series with Noa Pnini (The Neighborhood), and the Israeli prodco is making two seasons (totalling 40 x 22 minutes). The adventure drama will air on Teen Nick Israel later this year, and orbits around an alien named Sky whose spaceship crashes in a small town on earth. While waiting to be rescued, Sky transforms herself into the most popular (and meanest) girl in high school, and with the help of three goofy friends she must survive on earth for two weeks without being discovered.

Besides the popular Greenhouse Academy, which Chamizer created (a fourth season has commissioned by Netflix to air later this year), he has also has a handful of tween-skewing live-action series, including The Island (150 episodes on Israel’s Children Channel), The Eight (150 episodes on Children Channel) and Neighborhood (150 episodes aired on Nickelodeon Israel, and was picked up by Portuguese channel RTP2 and aired as O Bairro).

His shows have often tackled complex topics such as family relationships and LGBTQ identity, but at each show’s core, the theme follows a family falling apart, which gives series global appeal, he says.

Take, for example, Greenhouse Academy on Netflix. Based on the original Hebrew-language The Greenhouse, the series follows the day-to-day drama at a school for gifted youth. After their mother dies, a pair of siblings are put in rival groups at the school and must learn to cope.

The original ran for four seasons exclusively on Nick Israel. It won the Ophir Award (Israeli Emmys) for best teen drama three years in a row, and in 2013 Nick UK picked up an English-dubbed version of the series. More recently, Netflix commissioned Nutz to remake the series titled Greenhouse Academy, which Chamizer adapted for international audiences as showrunner and head writer alongside Paula Yoo (Supergirl). In 2018, the global SVOD later ordered a third and fourth season of the show.

Netflix has been leaning into local original content and giving it international legs lately, according to Netflix’s Q4 2019 financial report. In fact, some of the most popular 2019 titles on the SVOD were locally-made productions from countries such as India and Japan, according to the financial report. This strategy has also worked with Greenhouse Academy, says Chamizer. The original show was popular in Israel because of its focus on issues important to Israeli kids, such as growing up and learning to be independent, says Chamzir.

The Greenhouse Academy has one of the highest retention rates of the shows on Netflix, the SVOD told Chamizer. By following fans conversations on social media, he’s also learned that a lot of kids are binging the whole show at once.

Made on roughly US$40,000, Chamizer says they have to compensate for tighter budgets with more engaging stories with lots of twists and cliffhangers.

“Give kids a dense plot where something is always happening, that gives them a lot to get invested in,” he says.

Beyond beefy stories, Chamizer makes sure shows tap into the fundamental fears of his core demo, of eight to 14.

“Their biggest fear at that age is that their family will break up. My shows always start with a family breaking up,” says Chamizer. “The heroes’ journey then revolves around them finding out who they are without their parents, and them tackling the growing up process.”

As production begins on Sky, he’s breaking out his formula again to create a story where the protagonist has to find out who she is after she’s separated from her family. Plus, he’s mixing in sci-fi elements to up the stakes, and he’s hopeful that this mix will propel the show’s global reach.

“Making a living in a very small industry is a challenge, and the biggest challenge is to break through and make my shows international,” says Chamizer. “We took the first major step with The Greenhouse, but this is the beginning the road. I hope Sky will become an international show, but I’ve done one international production and I have four more to go, and making that happen is going to keep me busy for the next decade.”

MTV UK to Launch Five Podcast Series Tied to Popular Shows in 2020; ViacomCBS International Looking to Release Nickelodeon Podcasts

MTV UK is planning to launch five new podcast series that will be tied to its most popular shows during 2020.


The first of the new series, Celebrity Ex on the Beach: The Podcast debuted this week. Each of the five podcast series will be conversational in tone, have at least 12 episodes and will cover themes from the TV shows. The podcasts will be distributed on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, TuneIn and Global Player. MTV is partnering with Dax, Global’s digital audio ad exchange for podcast distribution and programmatic ad sales. MTV UK is the first ViacomCBS International outlet to receive the podcast treatment because it has the largest social media footprint.

“This is in response to the rapid digitization of our fan base across all our brands,” Dan Fahy, Vice President of Commercial and Content Distribution at ViacomCBS told DIGIDAY. “MTV [especially] has an audience that is rapidly digitizing and heavily reliant on social platforms for their content.”

In December 2019 MTV UK attracted 70 million monthly video views on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, according to Tubular Labs data. Show franchises are also popular. Reality show Geordie Shore has 1.8 million followers and scored 4.4 million video views in December on Instagram, according to Tubular Labs.

The demographic breakdown for MTV’s audiences is primarily people ages 16 to 35; and MTV has identified particular subsegments of that audience. When it comes to “the 16-24-year-old demographic — they have a real craving for authenticity,” Fahy said. “Podcasts have that personal appeal.”

For the past year ViacomCBS International executives have been thinking in earnest about launching podcasts. ViacomCBS International is also working out how to tie podcasts to its other brands, such as Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and Channel 5, Fahy said. The news follows Nickelodeon launching two podcast series tied to The Loud House (Listen Out Loud) and it's spin-off, The Casagrandes (Familia Sounds).

In addition to the popularity of the daily news show format, one of the fastest growing trends in podcasts is the creation of TV companion podcasts, said Sam Shetabi, Acast’s content director for the U.K. and Ireland. Podcast network Acast hosts the official podcast for the reality TV show Made in Chelsea.

“Companion shows are proving so popular because they supplement the classic water cooler discussions that every form of media wants to muscle in on, by letting fans further immerse themselves,” Shetabi said. “Many [podcasts] have audience interaction built in, which again makes them feel more like a conversation than a broadcast.”

MTV UK is using Dax for podcast distribution and programmatic ad sales means that MTV can monetize the series by selling brand partnerships and host-read ads as well as spot ads within the shows.

The links between TV and podcast series run both ways. Podcasts are a cheaper and quicker way of building audiences and testing narratives for shows. The popular Wondery true-crime podcast series Dirty John, which attracted 10 million downloads in the first six weeks, was turned into a video series that was released on Netflix in 2019.

Titled De Grote Slijmfilm, the movie will star Slime Queen Bibi in the lead role. Slime Queen Bibi is a popular actor who is well-known for her cheerful sketches and DIY slime making videos on YouTube.

Nickelodeon has been synonymous with slime since the number-one entertainment brand for kids introduced the green semi-viscous substance to kids in the 1980's, and Slime is the ultimate symbol of free-spirited mess and the physical embodiment of Nickelodeon's unconventional spirit.

In recent years, slime has become one of the hottest trends with kids around the world, with many videos on YouTube teaching children how to make their own slime. De Grote Slijmfilm will be first time a Dutch movie dedicated to the global slime trend. The adventurous family film is all about friendship, cheerfulness, creativity and slime - a lot of slime!

On international slime day they participate in a competition to make the most original slime. The only one who hates slime is Dominicus Duff (Géza Weisz), the country's biggest toy boss. He no longer sells any of his own toys because of slime's popularity, so he wants to ban and confiscate all the slime in the world. Will Indy and Olivia be able to save slime?

In addition to Bibi's leading role, De Grote Slijmfilm will also star: Géza Weisz (Wiplala, Alleen Maar Nette Mensen), YouTube star Djamila (Misfit 2), Vincent Visser (Brugklas, GTST) and Sarah Nauta (Elvy’s Wereld: So Ibiza!)

Nickelodeon Germany, Austria and Switzerland to Premiere 'The Casagrandes' on Monday 30th March 2020

NICKELODEON GERMANY, SWITZERLAND & AUSTRIA MAKE ROOM FOR THE CASAGRANDES
BEGINNING MONDAY 30TH MARCH 2020

New Series Follows Adventures of a Multigenerational Mexican-American Family
in Spinoff of the Emmy Award-Winning The Loud House

Share it: @nickelodeon @thecasagrandes


A new home in the city holds big adventures, laughs and love around every corner in Nickelodeon’s new original animated series The Casagrandes, premiering Monday 30th March 2020 at 16:30 Uhr on Nickelodeon Germany (Deutschland) and at 16:55 Uhr on Nickelodeon Austria (Österreich) and Nickelodeon Switzerland (Schweiz). A spinoff of Nick’s animated hit The Loud House (Willkommen bei den Louds), The Casagrandes tells the story of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne who moves to the city with her mom and older brother to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes.

After moving in with their grandparents in Great Lakes City, Ronnie Anne adjusts to her new life living under one roof and over the family-run mercado (local market), which is a gathering place for everyone in the neighborhood. The series showcases the culture, humor, and love that’s part of growing up in a multigenerational Mexican-American family.

Following its premiere, new episodes will air regularly weekdays at 16:30 Uhr on Nickelodeon Deutschland and at 16:55 Uhr on Nickelodeon Österreich and Nickelodeon Schweiz. The series is locally titled Die Casagrandes in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Leading up to the debut of The Casagrandes, Nickelodeon GSA will air a super sneak-peek on Monday 23rd March 2020 at 20:05 Uhr.

The US-English dub of The Casagrandes stars Izabella Alvarez (Westworld) as 11-year-old Ronnie Annie, Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) as her brother Bobby and Sumalee Montano (Nashville) as her mom Maria. Alvarez, PenaVega and Montano bring these characters to life, alongside: Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly OddParents/Cosmo & Wanda: Wenn Elfen Helfen) as Carlos, “Tio;” Roxana Ortega (The League) as Frida, “Tia;” Alexa PenaVega (Spy Kids) as Carlota; Jared Kozak (Born this Way) as CJ; Alex Cazares (The Boss Baby: Back in Business) as Carl; Ruben Garfias (East Los High) as Hector, “Abuelo;” and Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street) as Rosa, “Abuela.” Additionally, Eugenio Derbez (Dora and the Lost City of Gold/Dora und die goldene Stadt) gives voice to Dr. Santiago, a physician living and working in Peru, who is Ronnie Anne and Bobby’s father.

Ronnie Anne’s new apartment building holds new friends and neighbors, including: Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken) as Stanley Chang; Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) as Becca Chang; Leah Mei Gold (Legion) as 12-year-old Sid Chang, Ronnie Anne’s new friend; and Lexi Sexton as Adelaide Chang, Sid’s 6-year-old little sister.

In the first episode, “Going Overboard,” Ronnie Anne finds out her Tio Carlos was a famous skateboarder and she begs him to teach her some new moves. Then, in “Walk Don’t Run,” Ronnie Anne and Sid start a dog-walking business to save up for a new skateboard in a plan that quickly gets out of hand.

The Casagrandes theme song is performed by pop star Ally Brooke.

The Casagrande family was first introduced in the The Loud House special, “The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos,” which premiered in on Nickelodeon USA on May 2017 and ranks as the highest-rated premiere for the series in Live+7 with both K2-11 (6.6/1.8M) and K6-11 (8.1/1.3M).

The Casagrandes made its world premiere on Nickelodeon in the U.S. on Monday, October 14, at 1:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Following its launch, the popular series has spawned a podcast, The Casagrandes Familia Sounds and vlog series.


The Casagrandes is produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. The series is executive produced by Michael Rubiner (The Loud House), with Karen Malach (The Loud House) serving as producer, Alan Foreman as supervising producer and Miguel Puga as supervising director.

Update - Below is Nickelodeon's official Press Release announcing the exciting news!:

THE BELLA TWINS GUEST STAR IN NICKELODEON’S
THE SUBSTITUTE, AIRING FRIDAY, JAN. 31, AT 8:00 P.M. (ET/PT)

New Episodes Featuring a Star-Studded Lineup Air Weekly

Share it: @Nickelodeon #NickSubstitute


Nickelodeon is bringing “Twin Magic” to The Substitute with WWE Superstars The Bella Twins tag-teaming to go undercover at Las Palmas Middle School in Covina, Calif. Nikki and Brie Bella guest star in the premiere of The Substitute on Friday, Jan. 31, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon, with new episodes featuring a star-studded lineup of celebrities airing Fridays at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).


Using full costumes and prosthetics to hide her identity, Nikki Bella is transformed into three completely unrecognizable characters, and for the first time the Substitute gets some extra help as her sister Brie Bella directs from the control room.

Together they prank students as Nikki plays an eccentric gym teacher who brings her dog-training techniques to the field, an awkward speech teacher preoccupied by her upcoming maid of honor duties and a career counselor obsessed with clowns.


The Substitute features celebrities who are transformed by a team of Hollywood special effects artists to go undercover as a substitute, surprising unsuspecting kids in schools, camps and other locations. After a day full of ridiculous mayhem, the substitute reveals themselves and the featured school receives a donation for $25,000.
