Nickelodeon Australia And New Zealand Unveils Official "Sanjay and Craig" Website

The official website of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand, nickelodeon.com.au, has unveiled the channels brand new official "Sanjay and Craig" show website, which may indicate that Nick AU & NZ, and Nickelodeon channels and networks around the world (Planet Nickelodeon / Planet Orange), including Nickelodeon UK, may start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's latest all-new original animated series (Nicktoon) "Sanjay and Craig" quite soon! Nick Australia and New Zealand, the Australian and Kiwi version of the popular children's channel, have also recently launched the networks' official "Sam & Cat" and "Monsters Vs. Aliens" show pages.

Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand's official "Sanjay & Craig" website features a Meet The Characters section featuring bios for each of the characters in "Sanjay and Craig" - Sanjay Patel, Craig, Megan Sparkles, Hector Flanagan, and Remington Tufflips - and a show info page featuring information about Nick's brand new animated comedy series "Sanjay and Craig".

"Sanjay and Craig" (20 episodes x 30 minutes) follows the adventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, "30 Rock") and Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, "Nerdist", "The Talking Dead"). Together, they embark on epic kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet. From perfecting the ultimate bike skid, tightroping across a pool of garbage on a dare or Craig manipulating a contest to win his best buddy one hundred dogs, their routine hijinks often cross into the land of the fantastical and the absurd. Only Sanjay and his closest friends can hear Craig's warped words of wisdom. The only thing that stands in their way is their unhinged, snake-phobic neighbor, Mr. Noodman (Tony Hale, "Veep", "Arrested Development"), who's always on the verge of figuring out that Craig can talk.

"Sanjay and Craig" is a brand-new, creator-driven animated series that blends a comedic and stylistic sensibility with a distinctive mix of unusual, wonderful and random humor. The series features the additional voice talents of Linda Cardellini ("Mad Men", "Freaks and Geeks") as Megan; Matt Jones ("Breaking Bad") as Hector; Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory") as Vijay; Grey DeLisle ("The Fairly OddParents") as Darlene and Sandy Dickson; and "Remington Tufflips" as himself.

Sanjay and Craig is created and co-executive produced by first-generation Nickelodeon viewers Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf, who were influenced by the cartoons from their childhoods to create content for today’s post-millennial kids. These first-time creators were paired with award-winning writers and producers Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi (The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Alvin and the Chipmunks) to develop this original animated series.
