NEW YORK - Feb. 8, 2012 - Nickelodeon announced a new series pick-up and its development slate for NICKMOM, the prime-time, advertiser-supported television comedy block and convergent web site designed specifically for today's moms.

"As a 6-year veteran of motherhood, I know the importance of celebrating the funny moments of being a mom, and finding that rare and coveted 'me time,' said Bronwen O'Keefe, Senior Vice President, NICKMOM. "With NICKMOM, moms everywhere will have a place to go where they can decompress from their busy days with a dose of laugh out loud comedy."

Nickelodeon also today announced that Johnson & Johnson, Target, General Mills and Reckitt Benckiser have signed on as sponsors for NICKMOM. These multi-million dollar deals will include brand integration, content development and sponsorships across both the NICKMOM TV block and NICKMOM.com.

The NICKMOM nightly TV block, launching this fall on Nick Jr., will feature a mix of original long- and short-form programming, including talk shows, stand-up and sketch comedy, hidden camera and more. NICKMOM.com blog debuted last November and currently features editorial franchises, photos and video. Throughout this year, the site will evolve into a robust, mom-focused humor site complete with more editorial, photos, videos, gaming and community, becoming a fully integrated site timed to the TV launch.
