NEW YORK - Feb. 8, 2012 - Nickelodeon announced a new series pick-up and its development slate for NICKMOM, the prime-time, advertiser-supported television comedy block and convergent web site designed specifically for today's moms. The network picked up 26 episodes of the stand-up comedy series NickMom Night Out for the TV block, which will launch in 4Q and air in prime time on Nick Jr. Also announced were more than 50 projects in development spanning TV and digital and including work from stand-up comedian and actress Caroline Rhea; actor/author Annabelle Gurwitch; and Madeleine Smithberg of Mad Cow Productions (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart).

"As a 6-year veteran of motherhood, I know the importance of celebrating the funny moments of being a mom, and finding that rare and coveted 'me time,' said Bronwen O'Keefe, Senior Vice President, NICKMOM. "With NICKMOM, moms everywhere will have a place to go where they can decompress from their busy days with a dose of laugh out loud comedy."

NICKMOM's series pick-up:

· Oblivious - A game show contestants don't know they are on, where unsuspecting moms get the chance to answer trivia for cold hard cash. Executive produced by Scott Stone (Stone and Company, Brain Surge).

Nickelodeon also today announced that Johnson & Johnson, Target, General Mills and Reckitt Benckiser have signed on as sponsors for NICKMOM. These multi-million dollar deals will include brand integration, content development and sponsorships across both the NICKMOM TV block and NICKMOM.com.

The NICKMOM nightly TV block, launching this fall on Nick Jr., will feature a mix of original long- and short-form programming, including talk shows, stand-up and sketch comedy, hidden camera and more. NICKMOM.com blog debuted last November and currently features editorial franchises, photos and video. Throughout this year, the site will evolve into a robust, mom-focused humor site complete with more editorial, photos, videos, gaming and community, becoming a fully integrated site timed to the TV launch.
