ALIEN BOY INVADES NICKELODEON IN NEW OUT OF THIS WORLD COMEDY, "MARVIN MARVIN," STARRING LUCAS CRUIKSHANK, PREMIERING SATURDAY, NOV. 24, AT 8:30 PM (ET/PT)

Santa Monica, Calif. - Nov. 9, 2012 - Nickelodeon premieres a brand-new out of this world live-action comedy series, Marvin Marvin, on Saturday, Nov. 24, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Starring internet sensation Lucas Cruikshank in his first lead role since the beloved Fred Figglehorn, the half-hour multi-camera series follows the adventures of Marvin, an intergalactic alien teenager who clumsily tries to adapt to his new life on Earth. Marvin Marvin will air regularly on Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

"Lucas' impressive comedic talents and creativity put him in a class of his own," said Paula Kaplan, Executive Vice President of Current Series, Nickelodeon. "We're incredibly excited to continue our relationship with him and know his fans will enjoy seeing this quirky new character and the rest of this talented cast in this fun new comedy."

Marvin Marvin follows the adventures of a teenage alien with special powers named Marvin (Cruikshank) who was sent to Earth by his parents in order to protect him from evil invaders on his home planet, Klooton. Under the supervision of his new human parents, Bob (Pat Finn, The Middle) and Liz (Mim Drew, The Practice), Marvin tries to adjust to life on Earth as a typical American teenager. Helping him navigate Earth's unfamiliar social customs are Marvin's human siblings Teri (Victory Van Tuyl, Supah Ninjas) and Henry (Jacob Bertrand, ParaNorman) and his mischievous grandfather, Pop-Pop (Casey Sander, The Big Bang Theory). As if teaching Marvin how to act human wasn't hard enough, the family must also conceal his real identity from the world including Teri's curious best friend, Brianna (Camille Spirlin).

In the pilot episode, Marvin is taken in by the Formans, a quintessential American suburban family, who now have to hide his identity and help him live the life of a normal human kid. Unbeknownst to his human "parents" and to the chagrin of his human "sister," Marvin sneaks out of the house to attend high school.

Marvin Marvin is created and executive produced by Jon Ross (10 Things I Hate About You) and Jeff Bushell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua). Evan Weiss and Gary Binkow are also executive producing through their company, The Collective. Bushell serves as show runner. The series is produced by Rocart, Inc.

The series premiere of Marvin Marvin will begin airing in April 2013 on Nickelodeon's 40+ international channels across Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
