NICKELODEON'S NEW ORIGINAL TV MOVIE, "BIXLER HIGH PRIVATE EYE," STARRING JACE NORMAN AND ARIEL MARTIN, PREMIERES ON MONDAY, JAN. 21, AT 7 P.M. (ET/PT)

BURBANK - January 9, 2019 - Nickelodeon's new original TV movie, Bixler High Private Eye, starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger) and multihyphenate actress, singer and author Ariel Martin, a.k.a. "Baby Ariel," is set to premiere on Monday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). The live-action comedy follows Xander DeWitt (Norman), an inquisitive teenager who has a knack for solving mysteries, as he tackles his biggest case yet when his father suddenly disappears.

In Bixler High Private Eye, Xander's sleuthing skills get put to the test when his dad, Russell, leaves for work one day and vanishes without a trace. Frustrated by his attempts to find his dad, Xander's mom sends him to go live with his grandfather (Ed Begley Jr.), a retired private investigator. It's in his dad's hometown that Xander finds a surprising lead in the case and builds an unexpected partnership with Kenzie Messina (Ariel Martin), an investigative reporter for the school newspaper.

Bixler High Private Eye marks Norman's fifth starring role in a Nickelodeon TV movie, and his first as an executive producer. He currently stars in Nickelodeon's Henry Danger, the number-one live-action show on TV with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11, and the network's longest-running live-action sitcom. Norman is also the co-founder of Creator Edge Media, an influencer marketing agency.

Most recently, Martin released her debut book, "Dreaming Out Loud," as well as her fourth single, "8 Letter," in October 2018.

Bixler High Private Eye is executive produced by Jace Norman, Scott Norman, Rene Rigal (Immortals, 21 & Over) and Tobin Armbrust (Dark Places, Snitch), and is produced by Greg Sills (Grease Live!, Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards). The TV movie was written by Christopher Baldi (Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow) and Danny Kallis (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) & Michele Wolff (Ella Enchanted), and is directed by Leslie Kolins Small (Stuck in the Middle).
