Nickelodeon Picks Up “The Thundermans” To Series
Nickelodeon has picked up their superhero family comedy pilot The Thundermans, according to Deadline.com.
The network has given the series a 13-episode order and cast Jack Griffo (who has guest starred in single episodes of Marvin Marvin, Bucket & Skinner and Kickin’ It) to replace one of the two lead characters, who was played by Tyler Peterson in the original pilot.
“Created by Jed Spingarn, the show is about The Thundermans, a typical suburban family that happens to have astounding superpowers. At the center of the action are the 14-year-old Thunderman twins (Griffo, Kira Kosarin), who share the same bathroom, the same school, and the same annoying little siblings. Their only difference? The sister is a super student with a super sunny disposition who super looks forward to being a superhero someday, and her twin brother is a super villain. Rosa Blasi and Chris Tallman play the parents; Diego Velasquez and Addison Reike also co-star.”
This is Nick’s third pilot pick-up, behind Sam & Cat and The Haunted Hathaways. The Nickelodeon upfront is in less than two weeks (February 26) where these series and likely more will be officially presented to the press and public.
