NICKELODEON RELEASES "BEHIND-THE-SCENES" FEATURETTE OF NEW ANIMATED SERIES "SANJAY AND CRAIG," EXCLUSIVELY ON iTUNES

Nickelodeon today released an epic nine-minute featurette of its newest animated series, Sanjay and Craig. Available exclusively on iTunes free of charge, The Rad Awesomeness of Sanjay and Craig gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the sidesplitting series before its on-air premiere on Saturday, May 25, at 10:30a.m. (ET/PT). Sanjay and Craig follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, 30 Rock) and Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, Nerdist, The Talking Dead).

The Rad Awesomeness of Sanjay and Craig is narrated by Matt Jones (Breaking Bad), who also lends his voice to Hector Flanagan - Sanjay's eye-patch-wearing, unflappable, underrated and unselfconscious friend. Go to iTunes.com/SanjayandCraig to learn more about the larger-than-life and hilarious adventures of this rad-awesome dude-snake duo t and get a peek into their rad lives.

Sanjay and Craig is a brand-new, creator-driven animated series that blends a comedic and stylistic sensibility with a distinctive mix of unusual, wonderful and random humor. The 20-episode series follows 12-year old Sanjay and his talking snake as they embark on epic, kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet.

Sanjay and Craig is created and co-executive produced by first-generation Nickelodeon viewers Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf, who were influenced by the cartoons from their childhoods to create content for today's post-millennial kids. These first-time creators were paired with award-winning writers and producers Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi (The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Alvin and the Chipmunks) to develop this original animated series.

The series features the voice talents of Pancholy and Hardwick in the lead roles with additional cast members that include: Linda Cardellini (Mad Men, Freaks and Geeks) as Megan; Matt Jones (Breaking Bad) as Hector; Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) as Mr. Noodman; Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) as Vijay; Grey DeLisle (The Fairly OddParents) as Darlene and Sandy Dickson; and Remington Tufflips as himself.

Nickelodeon, now in its 34th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films. Nickelodeon's U.S. television network is seen in almost 100 million households and has been the number-one-rated basic cable network for 18 consecutive years.
