Welcome to the Wayne, Nickelodeon’s first series developed and produced expressly for its digital platforms: the newly redesigned Nick.com which just launched today, and the Nick App.
With the first episode available today, Welcome to the Wayne (six 4-to-5-minute episodes) is a weekly online series that follows the adventures of Olly Timbers and Ansi Molina, two ten-year-old boys exploring the crazy, unpredictable world of their New York City apartment building, The Wayne. Created by Emmy-winning writer and composer Billy Lopez (The Wonder Pets, Phineas and Ferb), Welcome to the Wayne is currently being developed for a TV series for Nickelodeon.
Here’s a first look at the initial episode:
Welcome to the Wayne is the first of four original, short-form digital-only series rolling out on the newly redesigned Nick.com website and the Nick App this year, with more in development. The other titles in Nickelodeon’s original digital series slate include the previously announced live-action Junior Eye, created by Will and Aaron Eisenberg; live-action Chase Champion (working title), created and directed by Michael Chaves and executive produced by Jeremy Slutskin; and the animated Mr. Sheep’s Department of Dreams, created by Alan Foreman.
