"Liv & Maddie" Showrunners To Work On New Nickelodeon Show "Knight Squad"!

John D. Beck and Ron Hart, who have both served as producers on popular sitcoms such as Shake It Up!, According to Jim and Liv and Maddie, will be working on Nickelodeon’s upcoming brand-new live-action comedy series, Knight Squad!


Knight Squad is set at a magical school for knights in training, where two mismatched students form an unlikely alliance to protect each other’s secret and pursue their dreams.

“So excited to start working on the new @Nickelodeon series #KnightSquad! It’s gonna be a blast!” John announced on Twitter today, explaining that it’s basically a reunion for him and Ron on the staff.

“@scatter & I have been friends w/ @MarcDworkin & @seanWcunningham for years since #PairOfKings due to a mutual love of pelicans #KnightSquad,” he shared.

Knight Squad will star Owen Joyner (100 Things To Do Before High School) as “Arc,” Daniella Perkins (Legendary Dudas, Inside Voice) as “Ciara,” Amarr M. Wooten (American Housewife) as “Warwick,” Lexi DiBenedetto (Modern Family) as “Prudence,” Lilimar (Bella and the Bulldogs) as “Sage” and Kelly Perine (Santa Hunters) as “Sir Gareth.”

Picked up for an initial 20 episodes, Knight Squad is created and executive produced by Sean Cunningham & Marc Dworkin, executive producers of The Thundermans. The new series is slated to begin production this fall in Los Angeles.


In additional Knight Squad news, Lilimar recently shared that her character Sage is an evil one (something she's always wanted to play!) ... and can't wait to see how she evolves!:



And she shared that kids, teens, and families alike will enjoy the magical, dragon-filled series.



And Daniella also recently revealed that she just got her Knight Squad production schedule, so filming is officially on the horizon!:
