Nickelodeon and the LEGO Group announced their all-new CG-animated comedy series LEGO City Adventures will premiere on Saturday, 22 June 2019, at 11:30 a.m.
The new 10-episode series takes us up close into the intriguing life within the LEGO City community, an real inside look at the absurd and action-packed adventures of its residents.
LEGO City Adventures also explores the intertwining paths of the city’s everyday heroes as they work together to stop a mysterious master criminal who begins to wreak havoc on their town. In the premiere episode Cubs and Robbers, a movie promotion stunt goes wrong, unleashing a humongous ‘Cubby the Cop’ balloon on the city.
“LEGO City is our strongest evergreen property globally, and for the first time we are leveraging episodic content to establish characters and personalities that bring the city to life,” said LEGO Group vice-president of licensing and entertainment Jill Wilfert. “We’re thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon for this important evolution of LEGO City given how well positioned they are to engage children and families with relevant programming.”
Layla Lewis, Nickelodeon’s SVP of Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships, commented, “The LEGO brand is known for creating imaginative and innovative content for kids, and we are excited to collaborate with the LEGO Group to bring the unique characters, style and humor of LEGO City Adventures to life on Nickelodeon.”
Created and produced by LEGO Group, LEGO City Adventures is also produced by Flaunt Animation (Scotland) and Passion Pictures (France) and written by Jon Colton Barry (Phineas and Ferb), Steven Banks (SpongeBob SquarePants), Jamie Moyer (Modern Family) and Brian Hunt (Second City Chicago).
Following its U.S. launch, the series will roll out on several of Nickelodeon’s international territories in fall 2019.
