Nickelodeon has put in to development a new original animated movie, which will be co-produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio and SmartStudy, the global entertainment company behind the children’s brand Pinkfong. The news of the movie comes as Nick orders a second season of its animated preschool series “Baby Shark’s Big Show!”, which was recently nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Casting for a Daytime Animated Program.
Said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation: “Baby Shark is an example of how we’ve been successful in bringing beloved properties that kids love from other platforms to Nickelodeon and opening up a whole new world of adventures. As home to the biggest franchises kids love, we’re continuing to grow their footprint by introducing brand-new characters and storylines, and creating original content in every format for fans everywhere.”
“Baby Shark’s Big Show!” is executive produced by Gary “Doodles” DiRaffaele (“Breadwinners”) and Tommy Sica (“Breadwinners”), with Whitney Ralls (“My Little Pony: Equestria Girls”) serving as co-executive producer. The series is produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, Calif., with production overseen by Eryk Casemiro, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Preschool.
