NICKELODEON TO PREMIERE NEW VIRAL VIDEO GAME SHOW, "WEBHEADS" HOSTED BY "BIG TIME RUSH'S" CARLOS PENAVEGA JUNE 2 AT 6 P.M. (ET/PT)

Series Produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions Will Combine Kids' Love of Viral Videos, Competition and Slime

Santa Monica, Calif.- May 22, 2014 - Nickelodeon combines the hilarious world of viral videos, physical challenges and slime in a fresh new format with its latest game show creation, WebHeads, premiering daily beginning Monday, June 2 at 6 P.M. (ET/PT). Hosted by Nickelodeon and Big Time Rush alum, Carlos PenaVega, and produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, the series features kid contestants as they compete in elimination challenges revolving around viral videos. Each round will test kids' video instincts - from predicting outcomes to guessing their popularity, as voted by the studio audience. The show will anchor Nickelodeon's weekday live-action block with all-new episodes premiering Monday through Friday during the month of June.

"We are always thinking of new ways to creatively deliver content to kids, and WebHeads speaks to their love for games and short form content, while adding a fresh comedic twist of challenges," said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon's President of Content Development and Production. "We are also thrilled to work with Ryan Seacrest Productions and have Carlos PenaVega, a long-standing member of the Nickelodeon family, host the show. His energy, charisma and raw natural talent make him the perfect fit for this project."

"We're excited to work with Nickelodeon on our first game show, which we believe will appeal to everyone in the family," said Executive Producer Ryan Seacrest. "Carlos is a terrific host, and we believe our format combines the popular obsession of viral videos with fun physical gameplay in a fresh and engaging way."

WebHeads will feature some of the internet's most watched viral videos in fun and inventive ways with games that engage and encourage viewers to play along. It is the perfect storm of brains, brawn and hysterical content that kids are compulsively consuming online. WebHeads is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, with Ryan Seacrest and Adam Sher serving as Executive Producers for the series.

Beginning June 2, fans can play "WebHeads To Go!" where players can experience the funny physical challenges on Nick.com, in the Nick App or on mobile web. The game puts players to the ultimate test with multiple mini-games, such as U-Tubed, Log On/Log off and Moment of Impact, which mimic themes in the show. WebHeads fans can also go online and in the Nick app to engage with the brand new show. They can get to know WebHeads' host in a series of short Carlos Cam videos, check out weekly sneak peeks of the show and watch featured full episodes. Beginning June 3, WebHeads will be available for download through iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Sony, Vudu, Nook and Fios Flex View.

Host Carlos PenaVega broke on to the scene in Nickelodeon's hit live-action comedy series Big Time Rush, as music group member Carlos Garcia. Also a member of the real-life band, Big Time Rush has produced 3 full studio albums and embarked on 5 different tours. Most recently, PenaVega wrapped production on the indie film La Vida Robot, based on a Wired article about four undocumented Mexican-American high school students who form a robotics club and compete against MIT in a national robotics competition.
