GLOBAL HIT ANIMATED SERIES "WINX CLUB" COMES TO NICKELODEON, STARTING MONDAY, JUNE 27, AT 8 P.M.

Hour-Long Specials Feature Voice Talents of Nickelodeon's Keke Palmer, Matt Shively, Elizabeth Gillies and Ariana Grande

Burbank, Calif. - June 9, 2011 - Nickelodeon brings even more magic to its air this summer with the hit international series, Winx Club, beginning Monday, June 27, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Launching first with four one-hour specials, followed later this year with a weekly series, Winx Club focuses on six best friends enrolled in fairy school as they face many adventures together with strength, smarts and teamwork. Culled from the first two seasons of the Italian hit series from Rainbow S.p.A, the four specials include state-of-the-art visual effects and feature the voices of some of Nick's biggest stars, including: Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) as Aisha; Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious) as Daphne; Ariana Grande (Victorious) as Diaspro; and Matt Shively (True Jackson, VP) as Skye; as well as Molly Quinn (Castle) as Bloom. Cymphonique Miller (How to Rock) performs the show's theme song, "Winx You're Magic Now."

The four specials will premiere monthly through the fall, followed by a weekly series of Winx Club seasons three and four, both featuring the new Nick voice talent. Nickelodeon and Rainbow are currently in production on 52 additional episodes of original 2D/CG-animated seasons five and six, which are scheduled to bow in 2012.

"Winx Club is all about girl power," said Brown Johnson, President, Animation, Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group. "It focuses on a group of super-fashionable fairies whose friendship and teamwork empower them to face any challenge thrown their way - from scary monsters to evil witches."

Winx Club is an animated modern fantasy adventure series that follows six best friends -- Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Tecna and Aisha -- enrolled in Alfea College, the finest fairy school in all the realms. When trouble arises, the Winx transform into beautiful fairies who use their unique magical powers to fight villains and save the world from evil. Winx Club first debuted in Italy six years ago and quickly became a hit that has generated an international franchise of toys, books, clothing, and DVDs, as well as a CG-animated feature film.

Bloom (Quinn) is the most powerful fairy and leader of the Winx. She has an inborn ability to sense danger, combined with a lively intelligence and a deep sense of loyalty. As the fairy of the waves, Aisha (Palmer) is fearless, determined, energetic, and a sports enthusiast. Skye (Shively) is the leader of the Specialists, a group of teenage boys from a neighboring school who befriend the Winx fairies and fight alongside them to battle evil. The fairy sister of Bloom, Daphne (Gillies), sacrifices her life in order to keep Bloom safe and sometimes appears to her sister as an advisor. And, Diaspro (Grande), a somewhat materialistic princess who can be difficult at times.

In support of the specials, beginning June 23, kids can visit Nick.com to play Winx Club: Enchantrix, a magic-themed animated game, where players can select and dress a Winx Club character to help guide them through environments and adventures all their own. Petpet Park, Nickelodeon's virtual life fantasy world inspired by the iconic virtual world pioneer, Neopets and its popular companion characters Petpets, is offering a special virtual item giveaway. Players who visit Petpet Park from June 16-30 will receive a free Winx Club magical charm bracelet for their Petpets.
