'Planeta Marcia' Trailer/Pilot | Nickelodeon Latin America

It's been nearly two years since ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS) Americas first announced plans to produce Planeta Marcia, a brand-new live-action space-themed fictional series for children, for Nickelodeon, however, Handle Like Eggs Productions recently released a trailer for the news!


Originally announced in May 2019, Planeta Marcia (Planet Marcia) is a scripted Nickelodeon series for teens, in which Marcia achieves her dream to enter Space Camp to train as an astronaut, but before she can take part in a mission to Mars she must solve the mystery of where she is from and reveal a secret that will change humanity. ViacomCBS is set to produce alongside Paradiso Pictures (I Am Frankie, Yo Soy Franky). 

Not much more is known about Planeta Marcia, including whether the series moved passed its pilot episode phase.

Around the same time as when Planeta Marcia, Nickelodeon USA announced that they were partnering with Imagine Kids+Family to develop a original live-action series, which eventually became The Astronauts. Both shows share similar themes, so it may be that Nickelodeon decided that they only wanted one space-themed series. Whilst the fate of Planeta Marcia is currently unknown, Nickelodeon Latin America (Latinoamérica) is set to premiere The Astronauts in 2021. It could even be that Planeta Marcia served as the basis for The Astronauts.

The pilot episode of Planeta Marcia was filmed in May 2019 in Birmingham, Alabama, and featured Audrey Fafard as Brenda and Morgan Monroe as a high school student.

On Planeta Marcia, Zach Carpenter serves as Swing; Theodore Eftimiades will serve as a Production Assistant; Luke Enzor served as a Art Department Assistant (pilot episode); Sherita Leslie serves as Hair/Makeup Combo; David R. Mitchell served as Best Boy Grip (Pilot); Mark Palermo served as Production Assistant (Pilot); Steven Vargo served as Best Boy Electric (Pilot); George Wehmeyer serves as Camera Production Assistant; Martin White serves as Sound Mixer; and Josh Brady serves as Production Coordinator (Pilot).
