Autumn 2011 On Nickelodeon UK

From C21 Media:
Nick UK wraps up for autumn

Nickelodeon will premiere a raft of original North American productions in the UK as part of its new autumn and winter schedule.

In all, two brand new feature length specials and three new series are set to air on the main Nickelodeon UK channel.

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf and iParty - a mash up between the cast of existing hits iCarly and Victorious - are the feature-length originals.

The new series include Supah Ninjas, from Eric Garcia and Leo Chu (Afro Samurai), premiering in September. The series, which was ordered in the US, will follow three high school students drafted into the secret world of crime-fighting and stars George Takei (Star Trek's Mr Sulu).

T.U.F.F Puppy is a new animation series from Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom), which Nickelodeon ordered stateside in 2009.

Life with Boys, from Michael Poryes (Hannah Montana, That's So Raven), Corus Entertainment, and Nelvana, follows a 14-year-old girl as she navigates her way through her teenage years.

Brand new episodes of existing favourites Big Time Rush, SpongeBob SquarePants, Power Ranger Samurai and live action series iCarly are also set to air.

Nick Jr will turn once again to Dora the Explorer for one of its new mini-series - Dora's Enchanted Forest Adventure will air in three parts in November.

New series Olive the Ostrich, from Blue Zoo Productions and voiced by Rolf Harris, will air alongside new episodes of existing shows Dora the Explorer, Bubble Guppies, Team Umizoomi, Peppa Pig and Poppy Cat.

Nicktoons is preparing to air Matt Hatter, a new animation series on a 13-year-old boy who discovers his family's secret, alongside returning series Penguins of Madagascar, Fanboy and Chum Chum, Grizzly Tales, Planet Sheen and the second series of The Troop.
