Nick Latam bows half-hour comedy

'Skimo' debuts May 15 on kids channel

Nickelodeon Latin America is gearing up for the May 15 bow of its first live-action original series for the region, “Skimo.”

“We’ve done a lot of original shorts and interstitials,” said VP of programming and creative strategy Tatiana Rodriguez. “We haven’t developed longer formats yet.”

“Skimo” is that first big step. The half-hour comedy will bow at 8 p.m. with two episodes and then air weekly thereafter.

 It follows the adventures of Fito and Tavo, as the teens run their own business while figuring out girls and other travails of teen life.

Nickelodeon has co-produced 14 episodes with Mexico’s Macias Group, better known for dubbing but which has opened a studio and production division.

Series features an all-Mexican cast, nearly all unknowns, Rodriguez said.

Nick produces two magazine-style shows for its Brazil feed: tween/teen-oriented “Patrulla Nick,” already three years running, and “Nick Tonica,” which targets kids ages 6 and up.
