Big Nate Premieres on Paramout+ Feb. 17!
Thank you Paramount+ for inviting me to the press junket of BIG NATE! I had the extreme pleasure of sitting down and chatting with:
Ben Giroux (“Henry Danger”, “Danger Force”, “Hart of Dixie”) as Nate Wright
Dove Cameron (“Descendants,” “Liv and Maddie”) as Ellen Wright
Rob Delaney (“Catastrophe,” “Deadpool 2,” “Hobbs & Shaw”) as Martin Wright
Bryce Charles (“Blackish,” “Young Love”) as Dee Dee Holloway
Daniel MK Cohen (“LEGO City Adventures”, “Body of Proof”) as Francis Pope
Arnie Pantoja (“Final Fantasy VII Remake,” “Trolls: The Beat Goes On”) as Teddy Ortiz
Headed to Paramount+ from Nickelodeon Animation Studio, BIG NATE! Starring Ben Giroux in the title role, Big Nate focuses on the comic strip character during his life at P.S. 38. The new animated series gives Giroux the chance to dive into an iconic childhood figure who's been entertaining audiences for over thirty years.
Big Nate is based on the children's book franchise of the same name by cartoonist Lincoln Peirce, and is executive produced by Mitch Watson (All Hail King Julien) and John Cohen (The Angry Birds Movie) and produced by Amy McKenna (Beware the Batman). Peirce kickstarted the Big Nate universe in 1991 as a daily comic strip. Three decades later, the universe already counts with 41 print collections and novel books, and six activity books.
Featuring an outstanding voice cast led by Ben Giroux (Nate), Dove Cameron (Ellen Wright), Rob Delaney (Martin Wright), Bryce Charles (Dee Dee Holloway), Daniel MK Cohen (Francis Pope) and Arnie Pantoja (Teddy Ortiz), the series will stream beginning Thursday, Feb. 17, exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Canada, Latin America and later in the month in Australia. The first eight episodes will be available in the U.S. and Canada, with more episodes to be announced at a later date.
The series will feature brand-new original storylines centered on Nate Wright, a sixth-grader with a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness to the world. Whether he’s dealing with disasters at home or detention at school, Nate is no stranger to a challenge. Luckily, he’s able to express himself through the world of cartoons that he creates. Charming, mischievous and a magnet for misadventure – trouble is always fun when Nate is around.
