Nickelodeon and Sky team for kids Block Party series

Nickelodeon UK and BSkyB have jointly commissioned a new kids series, Jordan & Perri’s Ultimate Block Party.

The live-action series will be made by Princess Productions, part of the Shine Group.

Filming of the 8x30mins series starts in spring and it marks the first time Viacom’s Nick and News Corp.-backed Sky have jointly commissioned a show.

It will debut on Nickelodeon this summer before transferring to Sky 1 HD later in the year.

The kids series will be fronted by Jordan and Perri, two members of Diversity, the  urban dance troupe that won the third edition of Britain’s Got Talent.

The hosts will drive around the UK looking to surprise groups of friends and throw the ultimate block party and accompanying dance routine.

Peter Drake, VP creative director, Nickelodeon UK and executive producer for Jordan & Perri’s Ultimate Block Party said: “Street dance is exactly what kids in the UK are into right now and it’s also great to be working closely with our partner, Sky 1 HD to commission shows for kids in a new way.”
