Nick Picks Up High School Comedy; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 4, 2014)

100 Things to Do Before High School

Continuing to build on its pipeline of creator-driven, comedy-focused content, Nickelodeon announced a 26-episode order of 100 Things to Do Before High School, a new live-action comedy series from Big Time Rush creator and executive producer Scott Fellows. The half-hour, single-camera series follows three best friends as they navigate the highs and lows of middle school, with the help of a bucket list of adventures that help them overcome class cliques, terrifying bullies and clueless teachers. The series will begin production this fall in Los Angeles. 100 Things to Do Before High School will join Nick's robust, live-action slate that features recently announced series Henry Danger, which follows a 13-year-old boy who lands a part-time job as the sidekick-in-training to a superhero; Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, centering on the Harper quadruplets who have only two things in common -- their parents and their birthday; and Bella and the Bulldogs which follows a perky head cheerleader whose life in Texas takes an unexpected twist when she becomes the new quarterback for her school team. Henry Danger and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn will premiere this September.
