Nickelodeon Greenlights ‘Go Viral’ From Ryan Seacrest Productions
Now there’s a TV show for kids who have a vast knowledge about Internet memes and videos!
Nickelodeon has picked up 40 episodes of Go Viral, a 30-minute game show (from Ryan Seacrest Productions) that will put young competitors to the test to see how much they really know about viral content on the web.
“Everyone at RSP worked hard to develop a new game show that showcases the way kids consume entertainment today,” says RSP CEO Adam Sher. “It’s our first series with Nickelodeon, and we’re excited to work with their team, and contribute to their legacy of making groundbreaking kids programming.”
“We’re excited to be working with Ryan Seacrest Productions on this show that captures pop culture in a fun way for kids,” adds Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s President of Content Development and Production. “Nickelodeon has an undeniable track record in producing hit game shows and we are adapting the format to reflect the way kids today consume content.”
Production is set to begin early next year with a premiere of Go Viral in Summer 2014.
