In advance of its March 2 upfront presentation in New York, Nickelodeon has greenlit a live-action TV movie inspired by its 90s game show Legends of the Hidden Temple.
The movie, starring Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School), will begin production in March and will follow three siblings who embark on a high-stakes, life-or-death mission, according to the network.
The kids-targeted network also said it has greenlit a two-part, animated movie based on the 90s Nickelodeon series Hey Arnold! The movie, set to debut in 2017, will be written and executive produced by the series’ original creator, Craig Bartlett.
“The greenlights for the Legends of the Hidden Temple and Hey Arnold! TV movies are terrific examples of how we are bringing our beloved content back to life both for new audiences and the generation that grew up on them,” said Cyma Zarghami, president, Viacom Kids and Family Group. “These TV movies will keep the spirit and essential themes of the original source materials intact, while branching out in new ways that will speak to and captivate today’s kids.”
