OH MY GAMMIT! INTERNET SENSATION LUCAS CRUIKSHANK AKA "FRED" RETURNS TO NICKELODEON IN BRAND-NEW TV MOVIE, FRED 2: NIGHT OF THE LIVING FRED, PREMIERING SATURDAY, OCT. 22, AT 8 P.M. (ET/PT)

Modern Family's Ariel Winter, WWE Superstar John Cena and Victorious' Daniella Monet Also Star in Sequel to Nickelodeon's Smash Hit Movie

SANTA MONICA, CA - Sept. 29, 2011 - Internet sensation Lucas Cruikshank is back as the fast-talking, hyperactive teenager "Fred Figglehorn" in a brand-new TV movie, Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred, premiering Saturday, Oct. 22, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Kicking off the Halloween season and based on one of the most popular internet characters of all time, the two-hour sequel follows Fred on his latest quest to expose his new music teacher, Mr. Devlin, as a vampire.

Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred stars Cruikshank in the title role and showcases Modern Family's Ariel Winter as Talia, WWE's John Cena as Fred's dad and Victorious' Daniella Monet as Bertha. The movie follows Fred Figglehorn after he discovers that his favorite music teacher has been replaced by a new instructor, Mr. Devlin (Seth Morris). Fred gets even more upset when he finds out that Kevin (Jake Weary), his arch enemy, is Mr. Devlin's star pupil. Just when Fred thinks his situation couldn't get any worse, Mr. Devlin moves next door and begins dating his mom. After seeing his new neighbor bury something in his backyard, it dawns on Fred that Mr. Devlin is a vampire! Fred's new mission is to convince the rest of the school of Devlin's true identity.

"Lucas is a hilarious screen presence who resonates with his legions of fans whether it be on television, in movies or on his internet show," said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon. "This movie showcases his unique brand of comedy while treating viewers to a superb supporting cast."
