Nick slimes 2000 with new ‘Double Dare’

Harris to host revamped series

NEW YORK — “Double Dare,” the gameshow that turned slime into Nickelodeon’s trademark substance, will return as the all-new “Double Dare 2000,” the kids cabler announced Monday.

The revamped show, which combines trivia knowledge with messy physical competition, will debut in primetime on Jan. 22 before assuming its regular timeslot on Jan. 24, airing weekdays at 5 p.m.

“‘Double Dare’ was one of Nickelodeon’s flagship original series. We are thrilled to create a new version of the show and are fortunate to have the expertise of several members of the original production team,” said Cyma Zarghami, exec VP and G.M., Nickelodeon.

Marc Summers, host of the original “Double Dare,” will returned as creative consultant, while the show’s former unit manager, Majorie Cohn, is overseeing the launch of “Double Dare 2000” as Nick’s senior VP for current series. Jason Harris, formerly with Nick’s “Big Help on the Road,” will host the new series.

Nick has ordered 65 half-hour episodes of the updated show, which is being produced at Nickelodeon Studios Florida in Orlando.

The original “Double Dare” debuted in 1986 as Nick’s first originally produced television show for kids. The show, which currently airs on Nick’s new digital network Nickelodeon GAS — Games and Sports for Kids, ran on the network for seven seasons.
