Miffy And Friends Charity Cycle Challenge Begins

The licensing industry news website Licensing.biz is reporting the exciting news that 45 inteprid licensing industry colleagues, including Mark Kingston, the General Manager (GM) & Senior Vice President (SVP) for EMEA & Australia at Viacom, taking part in the Miffy & Friends Charity Cycle Challenge, a 300-mile cycling challenge taking place between London to Utrecht, created a colourful scene as they set off from the Emirates Cable Car in London at 8.30am this morning!


Bringing together the UK and Dutch licensing communities, as well as other international licensing partners, the group had already raised £50,500 by first thing this morning for The Light Fund and €25,000 for The Children's Hospital in Utrecht.

Nervous participants posed for photos with Miffy, against a backdrop of colourful banners and beach flags sponsored by a wide selection of character-owners and industry partners.

Two pelotons then headed out on the road to Folkestone - the first peloton is aiming for a speed of 16 miles per hour and the slower one at 13 miles per hour. The pace in each is being set by a lead cyclist from Sports Connection, the company managing the ride.

One of the group is already nursing an injury - on his last cycle at the weekend, Icon Live's Warren Traeger was hit by a car and knocked off his bike. Although he is still in massive pain and was in a sling until this morning, he is heroically carrying on!

Executives from companies including Nickelodeon, Esdevium Games, Blues Clothing, Icon Live, Gemma, eOne, Trademark Collections, Max Publishing, Corsair, Sanrio, Collective Apparel, CPLG, Manchester City, MSB Accounting, Poetic Gem, Cherokee USA, Artists and Scientists, DRi, Rainbow Designs, Highlight PR, ESP Licensing and NJ Screenprints will all be part of the UK team.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands team will include execs from Mercis, Big Tent USA, World of Delights, Hubregtse, License Connection, Bambolino Toys, De Gele Trui Uitzenders and CPLG Benelux.

The organisers would like to say a huge thank you to the multiple sponsors of the Start and Finish line and the Beach Flags, meaning that, along with the branded jersey, it's going to be a colourful event.

Nickelodeon Cooks Up Some Magic In "Talia In The Kitchen", New Daily Scripted Series Bowing Monday 6th July 2015 On Nick USA

Original Nickelodeon USA Press Release via NickPress.com:

NICKELODEON COOKS UP SOME MAGIC IN TALIA IN THE KITCHEN, NEW DAILY SCRIPTED SERIES BOWING MONDAY, JULY 6, AT 7:30 P.M. (ET/PT)

New Series Launch Follows Anticipated Fourth and Final Season Premiere of Daily Hit Every Witch Way at 7 p.m. (ET/PT)


Santa Monica, Calif. – June 30, 2015 – An aspiring chef discovers if she wants to be the best, she will need a dash of magic in Talia in the Kitchen, Nickelodeon's newest live-action, daily scripted series debuting Monday, July 6, at 7:30 p.m. (all times ET/PT), following the season-four premiere of the daily scripted hit Every Witch Way at 7 p.m. Talia in the Kitchen is the story of 14-year-old Talia Parra (Maria Quezada), who discovers that she can cook just what each customer needs with her magical spices.

Filmed in Miami, Fla., Talia in the Kitchen (20 half-hour episodes) will air Monday-Friday at 7:30 p.m. after the fourth and final season of Every Witch Way (20 half-hour episodes). Each episode from both series will be available on Nick.com, the Nick App and Nick On Demand one day following their linear TV premieres. Talia in the Kitchen was created by Catharina Ledeboer and produced by Nickelodeon Latin America, the team also behind Every Witch Way.

"Talia in the Kitchen is great, fun storytelling that combines some of the trends that kids today love, like cooking, magic and wish fulfillment and, as always, comedy," said Russell Hicks. "Pairing Talia with Every Witch Way creates a full hour of daily format viewing, which our audience has an enormous appetite for due to the success of our other daily hits like Make It Pop and House of Anubis."

Talia in the Kitchen follows Talia as she discovers her passion for cooking after moving in with her eccentric grandmother (Jeanette Lehr) and her brainy little sister, Julie (Galilea Lasalvia). With the help of her friends (Ellis Ann Jackson and Joshua Hoffman) and her late father's magical spices, Talia tries to revive the family's restaurant business with food that literally stirs people's emotions. However, she must overcome competition from a local eatery owned by the rival Fuccinelli family: food snob Debbie (Gail Soltys), heartthrob Tyson (Liam Obergfoll) and head chef Frenchie (Miguel Luciano).

Every Witch Way begins its fourth and final season July 6th on a high note, having ranked number one in its timeslot with both kids and tweens during its third season. The high-stakes finale season follows 14-year-old Emma Alonso, who after standing up to the Witches Council, is more powerful than ever before. She's taking charge as The Chosen One and pushing the limits of what her magic can do. Friendships will be tested, enemies will be made and the Magic Realm will be changed forever. Every Witch Way is written by Catharina Ledeboer (Grachi, Talia in the Kitchen, General Hospital) and produced by Nickelodeon Latin America and Cinemat.

Nickelodeon, now in its 36th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.

Nickelodeon Poland Records Best Ever Ratings In May 2015

Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Polska has announced in the following press release, via Satinfo24.pl, that Nickelodeon Poland (Polska) recorded record ratings in May 2015, reaching as much as 7.5% and 1.1% Shr RT in the kids aged 4-12 years demographic, making May 2015 the most successful month in Nickelodeon Poland history!


Nickelodeon Poland's record ratings were helped by Nickelodeon's roster of hit shows, including "Chica Vampiro", "Sam & Cat", "The Thundermans", "Max & Shred" and "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn".

Nickelodeon Polska's May 2015 ratings performance was the crowning achievement of great ratings results since the channel launched in March 2010. The average share of Nickelodeon viewers in the 4-to-12 years old age group was up 6.8%, and for school-age children (7-12 years) to 8.3%. Thanks to a programme line-up popular with kids of all ages, the channel also had very high rates of AMR%: 1.2% in the 4-12 age group and 1.4% in the 7-12 demographic.

Original Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Polska Press Release:

W maju stacja Nickelodeon Polska zanotowała najlepszy wynik w swojej dotychczasowej historii, osiągając aż 7,5% Shr i 1,1% RT w grupie 4-12 lat. To 25% wzrost wobec wyników stacji z maja 2014 roku.

To był najlepszy miesiąc w historii badań telemetrycznych Nickelodeon Polska, czyli od marca 2009 roku. Tak dobre wyniki stacja zanotowała dzięki mocnym pozycjom ramówkowym. Niesłabnącą popularnością cieszą się wśród młodych widzów pozycje takie jak „Chica Vampiro”, „Sam i Cat”, „Grzmotomocni”, „Max & Shred” oraz „Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”.

Majowe wyniki oglądalności Nickelodeon Polska były ukoronowaniem świetnych rezultatów stacji od początku roku. W pierwszych czterech miesięcy stacja osiągała najlepsze średnie wyniki oglądalności wśród kanałów dziecięcych. Przeciętny udział Nickelodeon w grupie widzów od 4 do 12 lat wyniósł aż 6,8%, a dla dzieci w wieku szkolnym (7-12 lat) aż 8,3%. Dzięki ramówce atrakcyjnej dla dzieci w każdym wieku, kanał miał także bardzo wysoki wskaźnik AMR%: 1,2% w grupie wiekowej 4-12 oraz 1,4% – w grupie 7-12.

Nickelodeon ma szansę na osiągnięcie jeszcze lepszych wyników oglądalności za sprawą niespodzianki, którą przygotował dla najmłodszych z okazji Dnia Dziecka. Od 1 czerwca do 5 lipca kanały Nick Jr., Nickelodeon oraz Nick HD dostępne będą w otwartych oknach programowych u operatorów: Cyfrowy Polsat, Orange TV, Multimedia oraz Toya. Dodatkowo, przez cały czas trwania akcji mali widzowie uzyskają bezpłatny dostęp do 30 odcinków seriali z portfolio Nickelodeon w ramach usługi VOD. Widzowie będą mogli śledzić losy swoich ulubionych bohaterów, takich serii live action jak: „Hotel 13”, „Nawiedzeni”, „Sam & Cat” czy „Grzmotomocni”. Fanom kreskówek stacja oferuje niezwykle przygody z prawdziwymi gwiazdami: „Wojownicze Żółwie Ninja”, „Kórliki”, czy „Sanjay & Craig”. Najmłodsi widzowie też znajdą coś dla siebie. Przedszkolaki mogą poznawać świat z Dorą, małą podróżniczką czy odkrywać „Bąbelkowy Świat Gupików”.

Sky To Offer Even More Great Stuff For Kids

Official Sky Press Release via the Sky Media Centre:

Sky to offer even more great stuff for kids

29 June 2015


Sky today committed to offer even more great stuff for kids as it builds on its position as the best entertainment service for children and their parents. New developments will include the launch of a dedicated app and the appointment of a Head of Kids Content. This follows the recent expansion of the kids' shows available in Sky's on demand library from 700 to 4,000 episodes, making Sky home to more episodes of the most-watched kids' shows than any other provider in the UK.

Development of the kids app for mobile devices is already underway and it is expected to launch in early 2016. To build it Sky is combining its 25 years of expertise in delivering great content in a family friendly way with the talents of ustwo: designers of Monument Valley, winner of Apple's 2014 Design Award iPad game of the year and two BAFTAs.

The app will mean children in Sky homes can access their favourite shows in a way that best suits them. Latest data from Ofcom 1 shows around one quarter of children aged 5-7 and one-third of children aged 8-11 own a tablet. The proportion of children watching TV on a tablet has risen by a third in a year to 20% while a third watch TV on-demand.

Aimed at children aged 4-9 years, the app will bring together all the best age-appropriate shows available on Sky, from the likes of The Cartoon Network, Disney and Nickelodeon, in an easy-to-use and fun way. At the heart of the app's design will be the creation of an intuitive and playful experience that empowers children to discover programmes themselves but also provides parents with peace of mind. It will include options to filter what their child views, limits usage including a 'bedtime' setting as well as the ability to understand what their child has been watching.

In addition to the app, the appointment of a new Head of Kids Content will help ensure Sky continues to offer the most compelling kids content presented in a creative and appealing way. The recruitment process for the new role has started.



Following the recent investment in expanding its on demand library, Sky is now home to 4000 episodes of much loved kids shows including Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom. Kids' viewing on demand is already up 50% and it is expected to grow further following the launch of a major new advertising campaign. Set to air from 29 June, 'Operation Kids' features characters from some of UK's most popular childrens' shows including Peppa Pig and Captain Barnacles from The Octonauts working together to add the new dedicated kids section to the Sky+ home page.

Nickelodeon USA Acquires Rights To "Ladybug"; To Debut During Fall 2015

Anime News Network is reporting, via Cristina Vee, that Zag Entertainment founder and producer Jeremy Zag has announced the exciting news in a post on his official Instagram profile page, @Jeremy_Zag, that Nickelodeon USA has picked up the broadcast rights to Zag and Toei Animation's "Miraculous Ladybug" (also known as "Ladybug"), a CG-animated French/Japanese co-production about justice-seeking teen girl with super powers named Marinette, and will start to air the action comedy series from Fall 2015!


Marinette Cheng, a shy high-school student, has inherited some magical ladybug-shaped earrings. The ornaments grant the power of Luck to whoever wears them. Yet there is one condition: they have to be worn in an altruistic manner, or else, beware of the consequences! Whenever the situation needs it, Marinette turns into LADYBUG, the guardian angel.


Set in modern-day Paris, Marinette and Adrien are two high school kids with a difference: they are the chosen ones to save Paris from evil! They have been entrusted with an important mission – to capture akumas, creatures responsible for turning normal people into super-baddies.


When involved in such adventures, these two school kids become superheroes: Marinette transforms into Ladybug and Adrien becomes Cat Noir.

But Ladybug and Cat Noir do not know each other's true identity. Marinette is unaware that, beneath the Cat Noir costume nestles Adrien, her secret crush. Similarly, Adrien doesn't know that Ladybug is, in actual fact, just Marinette - one of the girls in his class.

Variety reported in 2012 that the 26x26' series, then known as "Miraculous", has a budget of US$11.2 million and has a "colorful manga style." Aton Soumache's Method Animation ("The Little Prince") studio is also co-producing the series. "Ladybug" is currently broadcast is over 120 countries.

Nickelodeon Unveils Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015 Exclusives

Nickelodeon will have a huge range of cool exclusives based on popular properties, including "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "The Legend of Korra", "Power Rangers", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "Ren & Stimpy", this year at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015!

The entertainment news website IGN has exclusively revealed Nickelodeon's fantastic array of SDCC products that lucky SDCC 2015 attendees will be able to find from Nickelodeon at SDCC, from prints to figures to t-shirts. Check them all out below!

"Avatar: The Last Airbender" & "The Legend of Korra":

While "The Legend of Korra" has sadly come to an end, there will still be brand-new items available for the many loyal fans of both that series and its predecessor, "Avatar: The Last Airbender". A new print from "Avatar"/"Korra" co-creator Bryan Konietzko titled “Avatar Generations” depicts both Avatar Aang and Avatar Korra. The sepia print juxtaposes Korra and Aang, representing their connection in the cycle of Avatars:


"I hope it warms your hearts as so many of you have warmed mine and Mike's!" Konietzko writes.

This will be the first year "The Legend of Korra" has no official panel presence at San Diego Comic-Con since 2011, when Konietzko and DiMartino promoted the show at the massive convention for the first time. However, a fan panel is scheduled to take place, and between the merchandise and cosplay that always populates the convention, the world of "Avatar" is certain to be proudly represented at SDCC.

Also available at SDCC will be a 12" pre-painted PVC figure of Republic City's most indomitable Chief of Police, Lin Beifong. The figure is designed and created by ZWYER Industries, a company run by "The Legend of Korra" director Melchior Zwyer and "Avatar" artist Alan Wan.

"The Legend of Korra" co-creator Bryan Konietzko expressed his admiration for the Lin figure, which had input from many members of the crew of the hit Nickelodeon animated series.

"The sculpt was based on a pose drawn by Lauren Montgomery and Christie Tseng," Konietzko writes. "I did a few rounds of notes on the sculpt, and they did a stellar job."


Fans who can't make it to San Diego Comic-Con can hold on to other opportunities for figures like Lin.

"Look out for more amazing stuff coming from Zwyer Industries and us in the future," Konietzko teases.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles":

There will be several new TMNT items available, looking at different incarnations of the heroes in a half shell.

Based on the current toy line and animated series, the Playmates 11" Metal Mutant Leonardo will depict Leo in a special costume.


The leader of the Turtles also gets the focus with a new 8" Loyal Subjects Jumbo Leonardo.


Lastly, all four Turtles are depicted in their red-masked glory in the 3” Loyal Subjects Original Comic 4Pak, which is based on how the group looked in the early Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics.


"Power Rangers":

While the Bandai Red Ranger Armored Might Figure is available at retail stores, Nickelodeon will offer a special version autographed by the current Red Ranger, "Power Rangers Dino Charges" star Brennan Mejia.


After 20 years of "Power Rangers" action and excitement, fans can return to the beginning with this original "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" Megazord. This limited edition Legacy Megazord with premium diecast parts will be available to conventioneers at the Toys"R"Us booth and online shoppers in black and gold. This item will become available at Toys"R"Us stores later this year.


There will also be a 6ft tall Red Ranger from "Power Rangers Dino Charge" at the Nickelodeon booth for photo opportunities - Sorry, you can't buy this one!


The '90s Are All That:

Nickelodeon will look back at a classic era for the network via three exclusive t-shirts at Comic-Con, devoted to "Ren & Stimpy", "Rugrats" and "Rocko's Modern Life"!:


"SpongeBob SquarePants":
The one previously revealed exclusive is a new "SpongeBob SquarePants" print, by James Gilleard, entitled "Bubble Buddies":


San Diego Comic-Con runs July 9th-12th, with a preview night on July 8th. You can find a full list of Nickelodeon's scheduled SDCC 2015 events here on NickALive!.
