New Series Joins Recently Announced 'Big Nate'

Nickelodeon has struck a multiplatform deal with James Corden and Ben Winston, and their production company Fulwell 73, to produce an animated movie and TV series, based on the recently released children’s book title, “Real Pigeons Fight Crime.” The movie and TV series are being developed to air on all Nickelodeon platforms. The book reveals the secret life of crime-busting pigeons who set out to keep a town safe. The deal underscores key elements of Nickelodeon’s content strategy, to build and expand the worlds of popular franchises and give audiences more of what they love.

The forthcoming Real “Pigeons Fight Crime” animated project is the latest addition to Nickelodeon’s programming, joining the recently greenlit “Big Nate” series.
