MeTV Coming to Northern NY State; Nick Brings Back Legends of the Hidden Temple and Hey Arnold

MeTV

MeTV Network is coming to northern New York in late September 2016. United Communications Corporation (UCC), the parent company of WWNY-7 News and WNYF Your North Country Fox, announced plans to bring the MeTV Network to northern New York. MeTV North Country will air on WNYF 28.2 in Watertown. As you know, MeTV carries the best of classic television with an extensive library of programming featuring timeless favorites like The Andy Griffith Show, M*A*S*H, Perry Mason, CHIPS, Bonanza, The Twilight Zone, Hogan's Heroes, Star Trek, I Love Lucy, and dozens more. The MeTV Network will now be seen in more than 96 percent of all U.S. households with 177 affiliates.


Legends of the Hidden Temple

Nickelodeon continues to reinvent its library of '90s content for a new generation of audiences with the greenlighting of a live-action TV movie inspired by its iconic game show Legends of the Hidden Temple. Drawing from the original game show's premise of kids competing to retrieve artifacts from a mysterious Mayan temple, the new action-adventure TV movie version will follow three siblings who embark on a high-stakes, life-or-death mission. The Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie will star Nick's own Isabela Moner (100 Things To Do Before High School) and is slated to begin production in March.

Hey Arnold

Additionally, Nickelodeon has officially given the greenlight to a two-part animated Hey Arnold! TV movie, written and executive produced by the series' original creator Craig Bartlett. First announced in development late last year, the now-greenlit TV movie will pick up where the original series ended, resolving unanswered questions and plotlines, including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents. Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, the two hour-long TV movies will debut in 2017.
