NICKELODEON DELIVERS MAXIMUM AWESOMENESS IN BRAND-NEW ANIMATED SERIES SANJAY AND CRAIG
PREMIERING SATURDAY, MAY 25, AT 10:30AM (ET/PT)
Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock) and Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead) Lend Voices for New Series
Nickelodeon presents the story of two best friends–one of whom happens to be a talking snake—as they seek maximum awesomeness in the brand-new animated series Sanjay and Craig, debuting Saturday, May 25, at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. This 20-episode series, produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios, follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, 30 Rock) and Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, Nerdist, The Talking Dead). Together, they embark on epic kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet .
Sanjay and Craig’s relationship is an alliance of equals, with Sanjay relying on his best buddy to aid his misadventures through their suburban neighborhood. From perfecting the ultimate bike skid, tightroping across a pool of garbage on a dare or Craig manipulating a contest to win his best buddy one hundred dogs, their routine hijinks often cross into the land of the fantastical and the absurd. Only Sanjay and his closest friends can hear Craig’s warped words of wisdom. The only thing that stands in their way is their unhinged, snake-phobic neighbor, Mr. Noodman (Tony Hale, Arrested Development), who’s always on the verge of figuring out that Craig can talk. Additional voice actors include Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) as Megan; Matt Jones (Breaking Bad) as Hector and Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) as Vijay.
During the series premiere “Brett Venom MD,” Sanjay and Craig infiltrate the hospital to see the world’s first butt transplant. Then in “Laugh Quake,” the two go on a quest to find the ultimate laugh.
