Nickelodeon Animation Studio has revealed on the studios' official Career Opportunities website that they are currently looking for four storyboard artists to work on a brand-new limited-run female driven animated series titled Middle School Moguls! The script-driven will follow the adventures of four girls who attend a Mogul Academy for gifted students.

Update (8/13): Actor Sean Patrick Thomas has revealed in a post on Instagram that Nickelodeon is planning to premiere Middle School Moguls in 2019! Sean also revealed that he and fellow actor Garcelle Beauvais will be voicing the characters “Mr. & Mrs. Pierre” on the show!

Middle School Moguls will have four "half-hour" episodes (22-minutes each). Two storyboard artists will work as a team and each team will work on 2 episodes.
