Nickelodeon Greenlights Brand-New Animated Series, "The Adventures of Kid Danger and Captain Man," Based on Characters from the Live-Action Hit "Henry Danger"

Original Live-Action Henry Danger Cast Will Continue Their Roles as Voice Talent in Animated Series

NEW YORK -- Nickelodeon, the number-one kids' network, has greenlit The Adventures of Kid Danger and Captain Man (working title), a brand-new animated series based on characters from TV's number-one kids' series, Henry Danger. Created and executive produced by hitmaker Dan Schneider (Henry Danger, Game Shakers, iCarly), the half-hour series has been picked up for an initial order of 10 episodes and follows the heroic Kid Danger and Captain Man as they face new adventures - battling bizarre criminals and super villains with their sharp wit and amazing crime-fighting skills. The news was announced at Nickelodeon's Upfront presentation, held today in New York City.

"We are giving the characters that kids love, the opportunity to play in fresh new ways," said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. "Animating Dan Schneider's incredible Henry Danger, while keeping the voices of the current series, signals to the audience that we are working hard to serve them on all platforms."

The Adventures of Kid Danger and Captain Man first found life as a Nickelodeon short-form digital series, also created by Schneider, which has been viewed more than 30 million times worldwide across multiple platforms. While the live-action hit focuses on Henry balancing the challenges of being a teenager with his adventures as a crime fighter, this new full-length animated series centers on his exploits as Kid Danger, as he embarks on brave new missions with Captain Man to battle monsters, aliens and more. The Adventures of Kid Danger and Captain Man is produced by Powerhouse Animation, which also produced the short-form series.

The live-action Henry Danger, which was 2016's number-one kids' show on all TV, was renewed last year for a fourth season (20 episodes). New season three episodes will continue to air Saturdays at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

The original Henry Danger live-action cast will continue their roles, now as voice talent, on the new animated show: Jace Norman as "Henry Hart/Kid Danger;" Cooper Barnes as "Ray/Captain Man;" Riele Downs as "Charlotte;" Sean Ryan Fox as "Jasper;" Ella Anderson as "Piper Hart;" Michael D. Cohen as "Schwoz;" and Jeffrey Nicholas Brown as "Mr. Hart."

In the new animated series, brand-new areas of the superheroes' headquarters will be seen by fans for the very first time, including the Man Cave tube system, which propels the crime fighters into adventure; and the Man Cave garage, filled with crime-fighting vehicles and gadgets used on missions. Along with appearances of fan-favorite characters from the live-action show, new friends and foes will also be introduced.

Nickelodeon year to date is the number-one kids' network, with the top shows on all TV in every key demo--the top 10 among Kids 2-11; nine of the top 10 with Kids 6-11; and six of the top 10 shows for Kids 2-5. Nick recently marked its third straight year at number one with kids, outpacing the competition most recently in 2016 by double digits. Nickelodeon also had the top shows in every demo in 2016: nine out of the top 10 with Kids 2-11; six of the top 10 with Kids 6-11; and six of the top 10 preschool programs.

Writer-producer Dan Schneider has established himself as a prolific and creative force in the world of family entertainment. Under his Schneider's Bakery Productions, he has carved a unique, progressive niche in the world of kid and family entertainment as creator and executive producer of mega-hit series like the landmark iCarly, Sam & Cat, Victorious and Zoey 101, which have received multiple Emmy nominations. Schneider also created and executive produced Drake & Josh. His series all have the distinction of having won numerous Kids' Choice Awards, Emmy Awards and Teen Choice Awards nominations, and he recently received the first-ever Kids' Choice Lifetime Achievement Award.

Schneider began with Nickelodeon as executive producer and show runner on the network's groundbreaking sketch comedy series All That from 1994 to 1998, and then returned to run the show in its seventh season. He then went on to write and produce Kenan & Kel, starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. Schneider also created the hit WB series What I Like About You. His comedic success has also translated on the big screen, writing and producing the popular films, Good Burger and Big Fat Liar.

Nickelodeon, now in its 37th 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 more than 90 million households and has been the number-one-rated basic cable network for 20 consecutive years.
