Nickelodeon to launch ‘Olivia’ on 26 January

MUMBAI: Nickelodeon is set to launch Olivia, based on the author/illustrator Ian Falconer‘s award-winning titles, from 26 January onwards in a bid to expand its preschool line up.



Presented in conjunction with media content company Chorion and animated by Brown Bag Films, Olivia will be aired on weekdays at 11.30 am.



"Children already know and love Olivia from Ian Falconer‘s beautifully illustrated books, and we‘re honored to have her join the Nickelodeon family. Olivia is a role model for all preschoolers who will be inspired by her imagination and keen sense of humor," said Nickelodeon/MTVN kids and family group president animation Brown Johnson.



The premiere episode of Olivia will feature the following stories:





  • "Olivia Measures Up" - After Olivia teases her younger brother Ian for being too short for a ride, father mentions that some day Ian may be the taller sibling. Olivia employs a variety of comical methods to stop Ian from growing. She eventually comes to terms with her own height -- with the help of a great pair of shoes.


  • "Olivia Plays Hotel" - When school is let out early due to snow, Julian and Francine come over to Olivia‘s house. Olivia has the perfect game for them -- Hotel! She transforms her house into a make-believe hotel, but then some strange things start to happen. Does the hotel have ghosts, or is Ian just playing tricks on them?


Nickelodeon will roll out content from Olivia across the following platforms:



Beginning 16 January, Nick Jr. Video, Nick Jr.‘s broadband video service available on Nickjr.com, will begin streaming a two-minute ‘sneak peek‘ from the premiere episode plus instant replays of all Olivia episodes after their on-air premieres.



Beginning 16 January, a two-minute sneak peek from the premiere episode will be available on various wireless carriers. Additional premiere episodes will be simulcast on Nickelodeon Mobile.



Beginning 27 January, Olivia episodes will be available via Nickelodeon-on-demand.
