Cam Newton Visits The White House For New Nickelodeon Show, "All In With Cam Newton"

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has scored big for his brand-new Nickelodeon series that launches Friday!

Newton took 10-year-old Rosie Smolowitz to the White House for All In With Cam Newton, Nickelodeon's brand-new adventure-filled docu-series in which the NFL star helps kids fulfill some of their dreams, to explore Rosie's aspiration to one day become president. During their visit, Cam and Rosie got to interview Michelle Obama.

"Don't let anybody stop you from your dreams, because I could have never dreamed of living here," Mrs. Obama told Smolowitz during the interview. "But here I am, the first lady of the United States. And Cam, you reached your dreams, for sure."

Mrs. Obama and Newton also made a point to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Newton was one of the first celebrities to join Team FNV, a fruits and veggies marketing effort powered by the Partnership for a Healthier America, of which the first lady is honorary chair.

Joanna Rosholm, the first lady's press secretary, said that Michelle Obama highlighted "Every Kid in a Park," a White House initiative in partnership with the U.S. Department of the Interior to allow all fourth-graders and their families to experience the country's national parks, forests, public lands and waters, free of charge.

Mrs. Obama, Newton and Rosie also talked about the Charlotte, North Carolina, youngster's dream of becoming president.

The interview was conducted last Tuesday in the Rose Garden. Nickelodeon says the episode will air during the summer.

Hosted by Newton, All in with Cam Newton pairs kids with unique mentors who lend their expertise in a variety of fields, such as gymnastics, animation, basketball and even local city government. Produced by Magical Elves, the 20 episode series will air every Friday night at 8:00pm ET/PT from Friday 3rd June 2016, only on Nick USA!
