CALLING ALL PETS!

COMEDIAN GABRIEL "FLUFFY" IGLESIAS TO HOST NICKELODEON'S "UNLEASHED," ALL-NEW COMEDIC PET TALENT COMPETITION SERIES PREMIERES THURSDAY, OCT. 22, AT 7 P.M. (ET/PT)

Judges Peyton List, Preacher Lawson and Utkarsh Ambudkar to Decide Which Acts are the Most Entertaining Pets Around

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--Oct. 2, 2020--From the backyard to the big stage, the search is on for America's most entertaining pets in Nickelodeon's all-new comedic competition show, Unleashed (10 episodes). Hosted by superstar comedian Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias, the series brings the most impressive animal acts together to compete on stage in front of a jury comprised of kids and celebrity judges Peyton List (Cobra Kai), Preacher Lawson (America's Got Talent, Connecting) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Brittany Runs a Marathon, Free Guy) for the title of "Most Entertaining Pet" of the night. The first two episodes of Unleashed premiere back-to-back on Thursday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Said Iglesias, "We have a squirrel that can water ski, enough said! You have to watch Nickelodeon's Unleashed!"

Each episode of Unleashed will feature three animal-loving pet owners and their loyal companions as they take the stage to showcase their pet's extraordinary talents. From jaw-dropping tricks to hilarious skills, the pet contestants demonstrate their unique abilities... but anything can happen once the cameras start rolling. Acts throughout the season include a water-skiing squirrel, a cheerleading goat, a hedgehog with a knack for agility tricks and a soccer-playing horse. As each act performs, the celebrity judges and kid jury give their reactions before voting to crown the "Most Entertaining Pet" of the night.

Unleashed is produced by Fremantle (America's Got Talent, American Idol, Celebrity Family Feud, Double Dare), with Jayson Dinsmore and Joni Day serving as executive producers. Nikki Varhely-Gillingham (The Masked Singer) serves as executive producer and showrunner, with Nickelodeon's Vice President of Unscripted Content Mandel Ilagan also serving as executive producer. The series is directed by Ivan Dudynsky (The Voice, Hollywood Game Night). Production for Nickelodeon is overseen by Rob Bagshaw, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content.
