Burbank, Calif.–Jan. 18, 2017–Adventures await from the stables to study hall, at a prestigious equestrian boarding school, in Nickelodeon’s brand-new, live-action series Ride, premiering Monday, Jan. 30, with back-to-back episodes at 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The daily scripted series (20 half-hour episodes) follows the journey of Kit Bridges (Kendra Leigh Timmins), an American teenager who must adjust to life in England at The Covington Academy, after her father accepts his dream job as the equestrian supervisor at the school. Ride will air regularly at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
In the series premiere, titled “Arrival,” Kit embarks on an adventure filled with new friends, surprises, romance and laughs at The Covington Academy, until she realizes she must face her biggest fear--riding horses. After bonding with the most stubborn and difficult horse at the academy, Kit must find the courage to ride.
Ride stars Kendra Leigh Timmins as Kit Bridges; Alana Boden as Elaine Whiltshire, an ambitious student who is not pleased about Kit’s arrival; Oliver Dench as Will Palmerston, resident heartthrob and rebel; Jonny Gray as Josh Luders, a popular and funny guy; Manuel Pacific as Nav Andrada, charismatic scion to a powerful South America family; and Rameet Rauli as Anya Patel, Kit’s roommate who harbors a big secret.
