Nickelodeon
and the LEGO Group today announced the all-new high-stakes CG-animated
comedy series LEGO® City Adventures will premiere on Saturday,
June 22, at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT). A rollercoaster ride of fantastic fun,
the series (10 episodes) depicts the funny, smart, and dynamic slices of
life within the sprawling and diverse LEGO City community, following the
absurd and action-packed adventures of its residents. Premieres continue
Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

"LEGO CITY is our strongest evergreen property globally, and for the
first time we are leveraging episodic content to establish characters
and personalities that bring the city to life," said Jill Wilfert, Vice
President, Licensing & Entertainment for LEGO Group. "We're thrilled to
partner with Nickelodeon for this important evolution of LEGO CITY given
how well positioned they are to engage children and families with
relevant programming."

"The LEGO brand is known for creating imaginative and innovative content
for kids, and we are excited to collaborate with the LEGO Group to bring
the unique characters, style and humor of LEGO City Adventures to
life on Nickelodeon," said Layla Lewis, SVP of Global Acquisitions and
Content Partnerships, Nickelodeon.

LEGO City Adventures explores the intertwining paths of the
city's everyday heroes as they work together to stop a mysterious master
criminal who begins to wreak havoc on their town. In the premiere
episode "Cubs and Robbers," a movie promotion stunt goes wrong,
unleashing a humongous ‘Cubby the Cop' balloon on the city. Then, in
"Billy the Bug," Fire Chief McCloud accidentally buys a malfunctioning
Twirly Hat for her nephew.

Citizens of LEGO City introduced throughout the series include: Sergeant
Duke DeTain (Joe Zieja, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4), an overly
heroic cop; Freya McCloud (Misty Lee, DC Super Hero Girls), a
crisis-ready fire chief; Shirley Keeper (Alex Cazares, The Loud House),
the grumpy street sweeper; Harl Hubbs (Daniel MK Cohen, Fixed),
an overeager handyman; Tippy Dorman (James Arnold Taylor, Star Wars:
The Clone Wars
), an expert doorman with a secret; Solomon Fleck
(Roger Craig Smith, Avengers Assemble), the dedicated city mayor;
Percival "Wheelie" Wheeler (Mick Lauer, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal), a
skateboarding police chief and more.

Created and produced by LEGO Group, LEGO City Adventures is also
produced by Flaunt Animation (Scotland) and Passion Pictures (France)
and written by Jon Colton Barry (Phineas and Ferb), Steven Banks (SpongeBob
SquarePants
), Jamie Moyer (Modern Family) and Brian Hunt (Second
City Chicago
). Jason Oliveri is the executive in charge of LEGO City
Adventures
for Nickelodeon.
