Update (15/10) - Below is Nickelodeon International and Viacom International Studios UK's official press release announcing the exciting news!:

NICKELODEON INTERNATIONAL COMMISSIONS LIVE ACTION COMEDY “GOLDIE’S OLDIES”

Viacom’s in-house production arm Viacom International Studios UK is set to produce the series


LONDON, 15th October 2019: Nickelodeon International today announced that it has commissioned a brand new live action comedy series titled Goldie’s Oldies. The series is the first original commission made exclusively for Nickelodeon International’s channels and platforms in more than 170 territories outside the U.S.

Goldie’s Oldies, a 20 x 22 minute live action situation comedy to be filmed in studio and on location, will be produced by Viacom’s in-house BAFTA-winning production arm, Viacom International Studios (VIS) UK, marking the studio’s first move into scripted comedy, first commission for Nickelodeon and a significant step into children’s TV production, following previous work for Channel 5’s multiplatform preschool brand, Milkshake!.

VIS UK’s move into children’s programming is being spearheaded by Jill Offman, who became Managing Director of the production studio in April, and has been tasked with overseeing its expansion.

Goldie’s Oldies focuses on the life of teenager Goldie, whose life is turned upside down when her family moves in with their Grandpa Maury and his three ‘70 something’ room mates. The series, which has an eleven strong global writing team, will begin filming in January 2020 and is set to air later next year across Nickelodeon’s international channels.

VIS UK will produce the series out of Manchester, expanding upon the launch of VIS UK’s first regional office at Salford’s dock10 MediaCity UK earlier this year. Goldie’s Oldies will tap into a number of local filming resources, including local on- and off-screen talent, studios, equipment and locations.

“We’re very excited about this series – its warmth, humour and variety of characters, including a strong female lead, make it a perfect fit for Nickelodeon,” Nina Hahn, SVP Production and Development, Nickelodeon International commented. “With a global writing room bringing different comedic and cultural perspectives to the show and its universal themes, including family and the special relationship between young and old, we can’t wait to introduce Goldie’s Oldies to our young audiences all around the world.”

Joe McLusky, General Manager, VIS UK saidGoldie’s Oldies will mark a number of firsts for VIS UK, broadening our scope and scale whilst demonstrating our commitment to supporting the UK’s regional production sector. The commission supports our ambitions to grow our international studio business, as we continue to expand production output for Viacom’s network of international channels, as well as third party broadcasters and VOD platforms.”

Goldie’s Oldies is set to join an impressive roster of live action content on the Nickelodeon slate including Hunter Street, Henry Danger, Are You Afraid of the Dark? and The Thundermans. The series has been commissioned for Nickelodeon International by Hahn. It was created by Evan Thaler Hickey (Top Wing, Go Away , Unicorn!, The Magic School Bus Rides Again) and the head writer is Mark Oswin (Hunter Street, So Awkward,). It will be executive produced for VIS UK by Trevor Klein.

VIMN promotes Jill Offman for Viacom International Studios UK’s scripted push

Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) has promoted Jill Offman to an expanded position at its global studios division, whose UK arm is now poised to move into scripted development.

Offman becomes MD at Viacom International Studios (VIS) with immediate effect, where she will oversee all English-speaking markets.

She assumed management of the UK arm of VIS in April, rebranding it from Elephant House Studios, and in her new role will add content sourcing opportunities for Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in addition to her existing remit overseeing VIS UK.

VIS UK is also now moving into scripted development, beginning with a slate of five co-production projects that have debuted here at MIPCOM this week. The projects – The Gold, Artemisia, Natalya, Sleepless and The Turkish Detective – are being developed as part of VIS UK’s strategy to secure commissions from third-party broadcasters and SVOD platforms.

The move into scripted development follows yesterday’s announcement that VIS UK is set to produce its first scripted kids’ show for Nickelodeon International and is a shift in focus for the division, which has primarily produced factual content for Viacom’s UK TV networks such as Channel 5.

Offman said: “This is an incredibly exciting time in global drama, with an intensifying battle for the best talent, ideas and scripts. I’m delighted that VIS UK is joining the fray with these fantastic projects, and I’m looking forward to finding partners across English-speaking territories who share our passion for extraordinary stories.”

VIS UK’s slate includes: The Gold, an 8 x 60 minute returning limited serial telling the untold story of Britain’s biggest gold heist written by Neil Forsyth; Artemisia (6 x 60 minutes) about the only female Renaissance artist; and Natalya, a 4 x 90 minute returning crime thriller.

Also on the slate is Sleepless, a 6 x 60 minute supernatural crime drama based on the novels by James Nally, and The Turkish Detective, a 6 x 90 minute returning detective series set in modern day Istanbul based on the Inspector Ikmen novel series by Barbara Nadel.

Since taking the helm at VIS UK, Offman has restructured the team to centre on five genres – scripted, comedy, reality, factual and children’s – with scripted, comedy and children’s being new areas of focus.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

MIPCOM: Viacom U.K. Studio Moves Into Scripted Content

Jill Offman expands her role as managing director at Viacom International Studios for all English-speaking markets.
Viacom's Viacom International Media Networks unit said Wednesday that its Viacom International Studios (VIS) U.K. is moving into scripted development with five co-production projects being showcased at the MIPCOM market in Cannes.

It also said that Jill Offman has moved into an expanded role as managing director at VIS for all English-speaking markets. She assumed management oversight of VIS U.K. in April, now adding content sourcing for Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

"The move into scripted development follows yesterday’s announcement that VIS U.K. is set to produce its first scripted kids’ show for Nickelodeon International, also spelling a significant step for VIS U.K. into the production of children’s programming," the company said.

So far, VIS U.K. has primarily produced factual content for Viacom’s U.K. networks, including Channel 5, MTV and Comedy Central. Earlier this year, it secured its first third-party commission in travel documentary series Trevor McDonald’s Indian Train Adventure for ITV.

"This is an incredibly exciting time in global drama, with an intensifying battle for the best talent, ideas and scripts," said Offman. "I’m delighted that VIS U.K. is joining the fray with these fantastic projects, and I’m looking forward to finding partners across English-speaking territories who share our passion for extraordinary stories."

The five scripted co-production projects the studio is debuting at MIPCOM are The Gold, an eight-episode hourlong limited serial telling the story of Britain’s biggest gold heist; Artemisia, a drama about "ambition, sex, politics and art, telling the never-before told story of the only female Renaissance artist"; Natalya, a crime thriller series based on the books by GD Abson; Sleepless and The Turkish Detective.

Sleepless is described as a six-episode hourlong supernatural crime drama series based on the novels by James Nally, written by Rob Fraser (Tin Star) and Gillian Roger Park (Young Offenders) and produced and directed by Bruce Goodison (Born to Kill, Doctor Foster).

The Turkish Detective is a detective series set in modern-day Istanbul based on the Inspector Ikmen novel series by Barbara Nadel.

VIS U.K. was rebranded from Elephant House Studios in April and has doubled its output and revenue over the past two years. In 2018, it produced more than 100 hours of content for Viacom’s U.K. networks.

From Forbes:

Viacom’s UK Studio Expands To Embrace Scripted Content, Too

Scripted content is the future for just about any media venture heading into 2020. So many have expanded to include it in their formula, going beyond unscripted or simply airing other studios’ content. Now you can add Viacom International Studios (VIS) U.K. to the list.

Today Viacom's Viacom International Media Networks announced that VIS U.K. has five co-productions underway. They were introduced at Cannes during the MIPCOM market.

Up till now, VIS U.K. had largely concentrated on fact-based content for Viacom networks based in the United Kingdom, such as Channel 5 and Comedy Central.

With the new venture, Jill Offman rises to VIS’s managing director for English-speaking markets, which include Australia, New Zealand and Canada. She had risen to head of VIS U.K. earlier this year.

On Tuesday, VIS U.K. said it was getting into children’s productions with a new scripted series for Nickelodeon International.

In an interview late last month, Viacom International CEO Dave Lynn said the company had carefully considered global expansion plans.

“Our TV studios business, Viacom International Studios, is already a leading creator and distributor of Spanish and Portuguese content, with a slate of 1,000 hours available for sale this year, including a TV remake of the Hitchcock classic, To Catch a Thief,” he said.

“VIS Americas has sold the rights to two of its scripted series to a leading U.S. broadcaster and streaming service. We’ve also got ambitious plans to expand our studios business across Europe and particularly in the UK, where we’ve just secured our first third-party commission for ITV [Trevor McDonald’s Indian Train Adventure].”

VIS U.K.’s new co-productions are:

- The Turkish Detective, based on the series of more than a dozen Barbara Nadel books
- Sleepless, a supernatural crime drama also based on a book, this one by James Nally
- Natalya, another crime drama
- The Gold, which chronicles the biggest gold theft in British history
- Artemisia, about a woman artist during the Renaissance

'Power Rangers Beast Morphers' Season 2 Announced

In 2020, Power Rangers Beast Morphers returns for a second season!


But contrary to what past years’ trends have left fans expecting, next year’s team won’t be Super Beast Morphers. Or Beast Super Morphers. The show’s 2020 season will officially be known simply as the second season of Power Rangers Beast Morphers, or Power Rangers Beast Morphers. Or if you're in the U.K., Power Rangers Beast Morphers series two. Whatever takes your fancy.

Power Rangers Beast Morphers Season 2 will feature the return of Doctor K from Power Rangers RPM, as well as a dino-themed team-up starring Austin St. John, the original Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger. Select heroes from Power Rangers Dino Charge including Brennan Mejia (Tyler the Dino Charge Red Ranger), Yoshi Sudarso (Koda the Dino Charge Blue Ranger), and Davi Santos (Ivan the Dino Charge Gold Ranger) will also return for the dino-themed teamup.

The season will also introduce Beast-X Mode, a brand new armored power-up donned by the Red, Blue, and Yellow Ranger. With these new powers in hand, the Beast Morphers team will be charged with taking on Robo Blaze, a brand new villain coming in 2020. Who is Robo Blaze, and how is he different from the villain the Rangers defeated in the first season? Fans will have to find out when the show premieres in 2020.

Power Rangers Beast Morphers Season 2 will also introduce new Zords, new Megazord combinations, and new high-tech weapons.

The season (the 27th season overall) will include 22 brand new episodes, including two holiday themed specials set to air around Halloween and the Christmas holidays.

Each episode will air on Nickelodeon USA at 8 a.m. ET/PT, beginning in early 2020. The season will then last the duration of the year, with an annual summer hiatus set to cover the length of the summer. PRBM season two is also expected to air on Nickelodeon in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Greece, and POP in the U.K.

Power Rangers Beast Morphers will have 44 episodes in its entirety, and air on Nickelodeon from 2019-2020.

Fans can check out the official Power Rangers Beast Morphers synopsis below.

"Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun."

Power Rangers Beast Morphers stars Rorrie Travis as Devon the Red Ranger, Jasmeet Baduwalia as Ravi the Blue Ranger, Jackie Scislowski as Zoey the Yellow Ranger, Abraham Rodriguez as Nate, Colby Strong as Blaze, Liana Ramirez as Roxy, Kristina Ho as Betty, and Cosme Flores as Ben.

The 2020 title was confirmed by the season’s first toys shared by Power Ranger Talk.

Fans can watch brand-new episodes of Power Rangers Beast Morphers season one (the 26th season overall in the long-running Power Rangers franchise) Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nick USA.

From ComicBook:

Power Rangers Beast Morphers' Liana Ramirez Talks Emotional Last Day on Set

Power Rangers Beast Morphers season 1 is in full swing, but while fans are getting brand new episodes from the first season the cast of the Beast Morphers has actually already finished filming. That's not just season 1 we're talking about mind you, but season 2 as well, and they've already started taking on other projects now that their time in New Zealand is done. We've seen glimpses of the wrap party Hasbro held for the cast as the show came to a close, and we recently had a chance to talk to Beast Morphers' very own Liana Ramirez all about the emotional process of getting through the last day on set, and while there are plenty of tears, they were happy ones.

"Well, I have a cast photo in my room that I, whenever I went back to the US, our producers from New Zealand sent to us as like as a wrap gift," Ramirez said. "And I remember that day, it was my official last day on set, and we were trying so hard to hold it together because we took that picture around lunchtime and we still had a few hours left on set."

"And we were just trying to not cry and smile for the camera, even though we were all like having so many bittersweet feelings of, 'Oh, we don't want to leave. We don't want to leave this. But wow, we've created something incredible together.' And it's one of those things that it's going to have a special amazing place in our heart forever. Yeah, there were a lot of happy tears that day," Ramirez said.

"Happy tears because we know this adventure is ending, but it was the most amazing adventure of our lives," Ramirez said. "But there's going to be more amazing adventures in the future, and we're super thankful for that and the opportunities that Rangers will give us as actors in the future. We were all super, super excited about that."

The good news is that while they are in fact done filming, fans of the show have plenty of time left to enjoy the cast, as Beast Morphers still has another full season to get through and we're not even done with this one yet.

"Absolutely. It's wild," Ramirez said. "We're going to be on your screens for like a year and a half left. That's crazy. It's weird to think that we're going to be filming other projects here soon and then like, we're going just going to be on TV at the same time. That's a really cool concept, so cool."

Beast Morphers stars Rorrie D. Travis (Devon/Red), Jacqueline Scislowski (Zoey/Yellow), Jasmeet Baduwalia (Ravi/Blue), Abraham Rodriguez (Nate), Liana Ramirez (Roxy), Colby Strong (Blaze), Cosme Flores (Ben), Kristina Ho (Betty), Kevin Copeland (Mayor Daniels), and James Gordon (Handyman), and you can check out the official description for Power Rangers Beast Morphers below.

"Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun."

The brand new Nickelodeon Universe amusement park and the NHL regulation-sized ice rink will be the only two things inside the 3 million square foot development in the Meadowlands that will be open to visitors when the highly anticipated venue begins its chaptered opening.

The amusement park will feature more than 20 rides, including three world record-breaking roller coasters and a record-breaking nine-story ropes course. Visitors will also be able to interact with their favorite Nickelodeon characters and see daily performances on the Nickelodeon Slime Stage.


Chapter One, dubbed “Thrills & Chills,” was teased Tuesday in a video posted to American Dream’s Instagram account.


In the video, the camera sweeps through the 8.5 acre indoor theme park, passed towers adorned with images of Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants. Then The Shellraiser, one of the record setting-rollercoasters, comes into view.

Don Ghermezian, President and CEO of American Dream, posted to his personal Instagram account a video of himself and others taking an inaugural ride on The Shellraiser.


The Shellraiser will hold the record for steepest plunge with a 122-foot drop. Another record setting coaster, The Shredder, will be the tallest and longest free-spinning roller coaster. Both rides are inspired by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And the Skyline Scream will have record for the the tallest indoor spinning drop tower.

Ghermezian also posted a look inside the DreamWorks Waterpark on Instagram. The camera pans across the 1.5 acre wave pool from one side of the 8.5 acre indoor water park to the other. A tangle of waterslides -- the park will have 40 slides in total -- can be seen at each end, along with construction workers and equipment.
