COUNTRY STARS BILLY RAY CYRUS AND KELSEA BALLERINI GUEST STAR IN ALL-NEW  BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES “WILD WHEELS” SPECIALS ON NICKELODEON

COUNTRY STARS BILLY RAY CYRUS AND KELSEA BALLERINI GUEST STAR IN ALL-NEW BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES “WILD WHEELS” SPECIALS ON NICKELODEON

 Blaze and the Monster Machines take a ride on the wild side in all-new “Wild Wheels” animal-themed specials featuring guest voice appearances by internationally renowned multi-platinum recording artist and acclaimed actor, Billy Ray Cyrus and Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling singer-songwriter, Kelsea Ballerini.  The first special, “Animal Island,” featuring Cyrus as Lazard, a greedy lizard-truck, premieres Monday, May 29, at 12pm (ET/PT), followed by “Toucan Do It!” featuring Ballerini as Tooks, an athletic toucan-truck, on Wednesday, May 31, at 12pm (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.  Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum selling musician, Darius Rucker will also voice a character named Thunderwing, a tough-talking falcon-truck, in an upcoming “Wild Wheels” episode premiering later this year.  The “Wild Wheels” specials follow Blaze and friends as they transform into animal-trucks and meet new friends on Animal Island, an incredible place where everyone is a talking monster truck animal.  Blaze and the Monster Machines follows the adventures of the amazing monster truck Blaze and his eight-year-old driver AJ, and it’s the first preschool show on TV to comprehensively cover all areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in every episode. 

In “Animal Island,” Blaze and Stripes are sailing the open sea when they discover Animal Island.  While ashore, they make new friends and marvel at the animals’ amazing powers but a greedy lizard-truck named Lazard (Cyrus) wants those powers all for himself and decides to steal them using a special machine. Then, in “Toucan Do It!,” Blaze, Starla and Darington visit Animal Stadium where they are set to take on a team of animal opponents in a game of Jungle Ball.  When the friends discover they are down a teammate, Blaze recruits an athletic toucan-truck named Tooks (Ballerini) to join their team.  When the ball accidentally flies far from the stadium, Tooks boldly flies to get it but her feathery tail gets trapped under a rock.  Now, it’s up to Blaze, Starla, and Darington to transform into animals to rescue their new friend.

In the toy aisle, Nickelodeon and Fisher-Price, a subsidiary of Mattel Inc., will launch an all-new toy line inspired by the “Wild Wheels” specials this fall.  Available at all major retailers, the complete line will include die-cast vehicles, talking and super stunt vehicles, and a track set that brings the fun and dynamic characters from the show to life.

In Blaze and the Monster Machines, the amazing monster truck Blaze and his eight-year-old driver AJ have adventures that explore the physics of how things move; tackle problems through scientific inquiry and mathematics; and discover the parts needed to make everyday technologies work. Each action-packed episode is filled with monster trucks, physical humor and upbeat original songs with lyrics that highlight a STEM concept such as adhesion, friction, force, trajectory and magnetism. Blaze and the Monster Machines is created by Jeff Borkin (Team Umizoomi head writer) and Ellen Martin (Bubble Guppies supervising producer).

NICKELODEON RENEWS TOP HITS FROM TOP-RANKED PRESCHOOL PORTFOLIO

 

Fifth Season of PAW Patrol, Fourth Season of Shimmer and Shine and Second Seasons of Rusty Rivets and Nella the Princess Knight Greenlit as Part of Nick’s Biggest Preschool Content Pipeline Ever

 NEW YORKMay 23, 2017Nickelodeon has renewed some of the biggest hits in preschool TV: PAW Patrol, Shimmer and Shine, Rusty Rivets and Nella the Princess Knight.  The renewals–a fifth season of PAW Patrol, a fourth season of Shimmer and Shine and second seasons of Rusty Rivets and Nella the Princess Knight–are part of the network’s largest preschool content pipeline ever of returning hit shows and new series for the 2017-2018 season. 

Nickelodeon is currently home to four of the top five preschool shows on all TV (12/26/16-04/30/17), led by PAW Patrol at number one.  Year to date, Nick also ranks as the number-one basic cable network for Kids 2-5–a leading position it has held for the last three years–Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11.

In the fifth season of PAW Patrol (26 half-hour episodes, produced by Spin Master Entertainment), the heroic pack of pups–Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker–will take to the high seas for Sea Patrol adventures where they’ll meet a scallywag of a pirate and his dachshund pup pal.  PAW Patrol features a curriculum that focuses on citizenship, social skills and problem solving.

Season four of Shimmer and Shine (20 half-hour episodes) will follow twin genies-in-training, Shimmer and Shine, as they travel up in the sky and far above the clouds–farther than even a magic carpet can reach–to the wild, exciting area of their genie world known as Zahramay Skies.  While there, Shimmer and Shine will encounter sky genies, Zahra-corns, stardust magic, flying dragons and adorable pets with wings in all-new magical adventures.  Shimmer and Shine features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting the importance of teamwork, resilience and overcoming obstacles. 

In the second season of Rusty Rivets (26 half-hour episodes, produced by Spin Master Entertainment), Rusty makes his coolest invention yet, the Mobile Rivet Lab (MRL), which will take his creativity and imagination on the road to new exciting locations. When Rusty, Ruby, Botasaur and the Bits find themselves on the edge of steeper cliffs and in deeper caves, they’ll need to build their way out with the help of some new creatures. Inspired by the DIY culture of the maker movement, Rusty Rivets helps preschoolers gain confidence and fuel their creativity with a focus on inventing, creating and problem solving.

Season two of Nella the Princess Knight (20 half-hour episodes) will bring even bigger and bolder adventures to Princess Nella’s kingdom of Castlehaven and delve deeper into her royal lineage.  Nella will lead a growing band of friends dedicated to standing up for what’s right, vanquishing enemies by turning foes into friends, challenging expectations and breaking down barriers.  She also continues to learn the secrets of her powerful knightly tools, including the origin of her enchanted heart pendant.  Nella the Princess Knight features a social-emotional curriculum promoting self-confidence, inclusiveness and compassion for others.
