Besides dealing with all the usual problems associated with growing up, Silvia will have to learn how to play video games while competing against David, the best player in the region and with whom she'll fall in love.

All this will unleash all kinds of adventures and moments that fans CANNOT miss!

N00bees is the Nickelodeon's first-ever gaming series, co-produced with Mediapro, and will bring fans closer to the world of video games. The show began filming in Bogotá, Colombia in May 2018, and is set to air on Nickelodeon Latinoamérica in the fall.

Below is Nickelodeon Latinoamérica's official show description for Noobees:

"A Silvia nunca le han interesado los videojuegos. Ella prefiere el aire libre y jugar su deporte favorito: el baloncesto. Silvia es lo opuesto a su padre, Héctor, y su hermano, Erick, para quienes los videojuegos son lo máximo. Cuando a Erick se le presenta una oportunidad única para cumplir su mayor sueño de ganar el campeonato de e-sports, Silvia hace todo lo posible para que él lo consiga, incluso si eso supone convertirse en una gamer profesional."
