Nickelodeon has announced two brand-new virtually interactive series premiering this summer — “Group Chat: The Show,” hosted by social media stars Annie LeBlanc and Jayden Bartels; and “Game Face” (working title), a video chat rundown of the week’s latest hot topics, taken directly from what kids love and are talking about across social media.
The loglines: Each episode of “Group Chat: The Show” will also feature Hayley LeBlanc (“Mani”), along with fan-favorite stars, as they talk about the hottest trend topics of the week based on what kids are currently discussing across social media, play games and compete in challenges–all via video chat. It premieres on Saturday, May 23, at 8:30 p.m. ET.
In Game Face” (six episodes), celebrities’ true identities are hidden behind an animated filter and voice changer in the game show, while a star-studded panel is given wacky clues and competes to decipher the mystery guest. Viewers can get in on the fun by downloading the show’s filters to transform into the same characters as their favorite celebrities. A host will be announced at a later date, and it debuts on Saturday, June 13, at 8:30 p.m. ET.
