Nickelodeon To Premiere First "Bruno And Boots" Movie, "Go Jump In The Pool", In Germany, Switzerland And Austria On Friday 6th January 2017

Nickelodeon Northern Europe has announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon Austria (Österreich), Nickelodeon Switzerland (Schweiz) and Nickelodeon Germany (Deutschland) will premiere the wildly successful movie Bruno and Boots: Go Jump In The Pool! on Friday 6th January 2017!

Nickelodeon Northern Europe will debut Bruno and Boots at 08:55 Uhr on Nickelodeon Deutschland and at 10:55 on Nickelodeon Schweiz and Nickelodeon Österreich.

Although unconfirmed, it is expected that Nick North will also debut Bruno and Boots on Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland), Nickelodeon Belgium (België; Flanders), Nickelodeon Denmark (Danmark), Nickelodeon Sweden (Sverige) and Nickelodeon Norway around the same time.

Based on the much-loved Macdonald Hall book series by Gordon Korman (Swindle), Bruno and Boots follows the adventures of Bruno Walton (Jonny Gray, Ride - Mit Herz und Huf, Max & Shred) and Melvin "Boots" O'Neal (Callan Potter, The Other Kingdom (Das Königreich der Anderen)), the most infamous troublemakers at Macdonald Hall, a prestigious school for boys, and, within their time at the school, Bruno has managed to convince Boots to tag along during countless prank operations.

Featuring an eclectic mix of supporting characters ranging from an an eccentric school genius to a hypochondriac snob, Bruno and Boots' epic pranks and frequent unintended consequences keep the stories continuously thrilling.

In Bruno and Boots: Go Jump in the Pool (1 x 90), after a dismal defeat at the hands of their York Academy rivals at the semi-annual swim meet, Bruno uncovers that Macdonald Hall is perilously close to losing several top students to York (including his best pal Boots) thanks to the Hall’s less than impressive sports facilities.

Determined to keep Boots at Macdonald Hall, Bruno goes on the fundraising warpath to build their own pool. Through rummage sales, nationally televised bake-offs and other ill-advised (borderline illegal) schemes, the Macdonald Hall boys raise a good chunk of cash. But with the final swim meet of the season close at hand and only half the funds raised, Bruno must take drastic action to keep Boots from becoming a dreaded York "turkey" – a fate worse than any detention Headmaster William “The Fish” Sturgeon (Peter Keleghan) can dole out - including rallying the girls of Scrimmage Academy in his epic quest!

Bruno & Boots: Go Jump in the Pool! is produced by Anthony Leo and Andrew Rosen of Aircraft Pictures (Todd and the Book of Pure Evil, Cybergeddon), written by Adam Barken (Killjoys, Flashpoint), directed by Vivieno Caldinelli (This Hour has 22 Minutes, Odd Squad), and distributed by Breakthrough Entertainment. Bruno & Boots: Go Jump in the Pool! also stars Hannah Vandenbygaart (Make it Pop, Tell the World), Kiana Madeira (Really Me, My Babysitter’s a Vampire), Joshua Kilimnik (Backstage, Odd Squad), Drew Haytaoglu (Anne of Green Gables), Isiah Lea (The Stanley Dynamic), Jayne Eastwood (Little Mosque On The Prairie), Scott Thompson (Kids In The Hall), and Caroline Rhea (Sabrina, The Teenage Witch) as Ms. Scrimmage. The movie was produced with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund and the Bell Fund.

Nickelodeon acquired the international broadcast rights to Bruno And Boots: Go Jump In The Pool in October 2016 for Nickelodeon channels in Australia & New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Benelux, Scandinavia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Poland.
