Nick’s ‘Haunted Hathaways’ To Launch July 13 with ‘P-Nut’ Center

New live-action comedy offers ghostly premise

Nickelodeon is readying for launch new live-action comedy “The Haunted Hathaways” — featuring kid viral hip-hop star Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores Jr. — with a premiere date of July 13.

“Hathaways,” created by Robert Peacock (“Reba”) and exec produced by Boyce Bugliari and Jamie McLaughlin (“Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures”) will tell the stories of a mother (Ginifer King) and two daughters (Amber Montana, Breanna Yde) who relocate to New Orleans and find themselves living with a ghost family trio (Chico Benymon, Curtis Harris and Lil P-Nut).

“ ‘The Haunted Hathaways’ is a high-concept show that combines the ultimate blended family with a new dimension of fun to bring fresh and relatable storytelling for our audience,” said Nick content development and production prexy Russell Hicks. “Fans will be excited to see the silly hijinks and supernatural comedy that ensue as our talented creative team and ensemble cast bring these two families, literally from different worlds, to life.”

After airing in its 8:30 p.m. Saturday timeslot, episodes will be made available digitally the following day through such sources as iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video and Vudu.

Lil P-Nut’s videos on YouTube have generated as many as 3 million-plus hits, with others also reaching seven figures.
