Nck Cannon’s New Series Airing On Nickelodeon’s New ‘TurboNick’
Nickelodeon debuted rapper/actor Nick Cannon’s new original series, ‘Nick Cannon’s Star Camp,’ July 22nd on TurboNick, Nickelodeon’s new broadband video player. The series is executive produced by Cannon, Quincy Jones and Quincy “QD3″ Jones III and is about eight members of a new youth super-group called the The Giggle Club, hand-picked by Cannon himself ranging in ages from thirteen to nineteen years old. The group is filmed as they go through star boot camp and receive on hands expert training to help the group record their first album.
After the cameras stop following the group as they learn the fundamental tools needed to make it in the music industry, plans for them include recording an album and performing in a live stage show tour, thereby fulfilling their dreams of stardom. To help get them there, Nick Cannon and Quincy Jones call on a “media dream team” of producer and director Debbie Allen and choreographer to the stars, Fatima Robinson.
“There is so much untapped talent out there, particularly among young kids today. We wanted to find this talent and give kids the training necessary to mold them into the budding stars that they can be,” said Cannon. “I can’t think of a better network to be working with than Nickelodeon and a better way to reach today’s multi-platform kid audience than by airing this series on TurboNick.”
“I am committed to projects that have a positive influence on today’s youth,” said Jones. “Nick Cannon’s Star Camp is a perfect fit and a beautiful way to help create the next generation’s successful writers, actors, musicians and producers.”
The series of five 15-minute episodes will stream on TurboNick (www.turbonick.com) every Sunday, and the finale performance will air in Nickelodeon’s TEENick block on Sunday, August 26.
