Nickelodeon Orders Comedy ‘Cousins for Life’

Twenty Initial Episodes Have Been Ordered

Nickelodeon has greenlit a new live-action series, “Cousins For Life,” from veteran creators and executive producers Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert (“Austin & Ally,” “All That”). The new buddy comedy centers on 12-year-old cousins Stuart (Dallas Young) and Ivy (Scarlet Spencer), best friends who come from very different backgrounds, and learn to navigate life under one roof with their families.

“Cousins For Life features new, young talent that our audience can grow with.  It’s relatable to kids and families and full of heart with a positive, empowering message,”
said Bronwen O’Keefe, EVP of Live Action and Movies at Nickelodeon. “What makes this series so unique is the aspirational relationship that unfolds between the cousins, combined with the funny situations that emerge from these opposite personalities living together.”

Twenty initial episodes of “Cousins for Life” have been ordered.
