MUMBAI: Nick has a scorching hot line-up this summer. After launching Trollz in February, Gili Gili Gappa in March and Drake & Josh on 1 April, Nick is launching four new shows in May.

This brings the tally of new shows on Nick in 2006 so far to seven, not to mention new episodes, a fully made-over programming schedule and marketing events.

Nick India vice president and general manager Hema Govindan said, "The four new shows are in line with Nick’s programming plans to introduce more than 500 episodes of new programming for the kids this year. We’re also making some major changes to our programming grid so watch out for that. With a philosophy that puts kids first, Nick strives to keep the excitement alive for kids given their short attention span and quest for newer things."

First up, the Nick Jr. pre-school block sees a complete makeover with three new shows including Peppa Pig, Dougie in Disguise and Lazy Town all launching on 8 May.

Peppa Pig is a cheerful pre-school show about a family of pigs. Peppa is a loveable, cheeky little piggy who lives with her little brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Peppa’s favourite things include playing games, dressing up, days out and jumping in muddy puddles. Her adventures in growing up and making friends always end happily with loud snorts of laughter.

Dougie in Disguise is a pre-school show about Dougie, an ordinary kid. He loves to play with his sticker albums which turn into a living world through Dougie's imagination. In each episode Dougie, with his viewers, meets new friends and enjoys exciting adventures in a unique environment, with songs and beautiful animated stickers. It’s a world of magic and wisdom where Dougie overcomes situations with his little dog while interacting with the audience.

Lazy Town is a one-of-its-kind comic live action-cum-animation series about health and fitness for kids. Eight-year-old Stephanie has just moved to a strange new place called Lazy Town where people like to lounge and do nothing, where the word “healthy” brings her blank stares and the word “broccoli” can cause people to scream.
