Nickelodeon USA To Premiere "School Of Rock" On Saturday 12 March 2016

Nickelodeon USA has announced the very exciting news in a trailer that Nick USA will start to premiere and show School of Rock on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 9:30pm ET/PT, as part of the networks Kids' Choice Night! Nickelodeon USA will simulcast the debut of School of Rock on Nicktoons and TeenNick!


The gifted students of William B. Travis Prep School are in for the lesson of a lifetime! When their teacher of a unique group of prep school students suffers an unfortunate skateboarding spill, Mr. Finn, a down-on-his-luck musician, steps in and poses as their substitute teacher. At first, the overachieving and rule-following kids are rather unimpressed, but little do the students know - their new substitute actually rocks! Their new teacher, Dewey, uses rock n' roll to ignite their inner expression, and with their talents combined, this class of classically-trained musicians forms a band complete with headbanging beats and face-melting solos. But if they want to live the rock star life, they'll have to band together and keep the whole thing a secret. With Mr. Finn's help, they'll discover that working together isn't just cool, it rocks! School of Rock is inspired by the hit movie of the same name.


School of Rock stars:

Tony Cavalero (Nickelodeon's Splitting Adam) as "Dewey," a down-on-his-luck musician posing as a substitute teacher, who ultimately becomes the most unique and well-liked teacher the kids have ever had. Although he has an alternative approach to teaching and could probably learn more from his students about history or math, Dewey uses the language of rock n' roll to elevate and inspire his class of kids to reach new heights as the band called "School of Rock."

Ricardo Hurtado as "Freddy," the new kid who brings a fresh rebellious perspective to William B. Travis Prep School. He is an effortlessly "cool" kid who recognizes the opportunity in building the band with Dewey, and challenges the class to take risks in the name of having fun. Freddy is a good role model for Lawrence and Zack, has the same interests as Tomika, and supports Summer when it counts.

Lance Lim (Growing Up Fisher) as "Zack," a reserved child of overbearing parents, who comes out of his shell as the band's electric guitarist. He walks the line between fearing the consequences of breaking the rules and embracing the independence that Dewey encourages. Zack is a good friend to all, and with the confidence he gains from the band he makes the choice to become his own man instead of a "Yale man."

Aidan Miner (Nickelodeon Creative Lab's Homeroom) as "Lawrence" the quirky, technologically-inclined, unabashedly confident keyboardist for the band. He may miss social cues and create messes for the band, but his heart is always in the right place as a team player who completely embraces rock n' roll.

Jade Pettyjohn (Nickelodeon's Henry Danger) as "Summer," the overachiever with perfect attendance and a blind ambition for academics. Not satisfied with playing tambourine in the band, she ultimately becomes the manager when she realizes she can use her organizational skills to the band's benefit. Summer learns to take risks and be a team player, especially when it means getting noticed by her crush, Freddy.

Breanna Yde (Nickelodeon's The Haunted Hathaways) as "Tomika," is the fun-loving bass player who is a bit of a tomboy. Although more comfortable with a skateboard than a microphone, Tomika's peers soon learn that she is a double threat – a gifted bass guitarist who also has some powerful pipes. Tomika is grounded and knows who she is, which is why she is such a great best friend to Summer - together these girls can accomplish anything.
