NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2012 -- Nickelodeon is celebrating momkind one funny moment at a time with the launch of NickMom, the new primetime, ad-supported TV block bowing Oct. 1 and re-launching today on the Web at www.NickMom.com.

"NickMom is a unique TV and digital destination that gives moms permission to wind down from the day and laugh out loud at the shared experiences of motherhood," said Bronwen O'Keefe, Senior Vice President, NickMom. "From the comedy of our long- and short-form programming, to the engagement our web site provides, NickMom has the heart and humor of Nickelodeon, but with a specific mom point of view."

The NickMom TV block will launch with four original series spanning sketch comedy, talk, docu-series and stand-up genres: Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, MFF: Mom Friends Forever, NickMom Night Out and What Was Carol Brady Thinking?, with additional programming rolling out in 2013.

NickMom's TV line-up for launch will feature the following four series:

PARENTAL DISCRETION WITH STEFANIE WILDER-TAYLOR

Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor (26 episodes) is a show that blends studio elements, interviews, video commentary, monologues and panel discussions with hidden camera, mom on the street and sketch comedy. Each episode explores a different element of parenting, all through the irreverent and funny eyes of author and comedienne Stefanie Wilder-Taylor (Naptime is the New Happy Hour, Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay). The series is executive produced by Hugh Fink (The Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Saturday Night Live, The Showbiz Show), Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth from Magical Elves (Top Chef, Fashion Star) and Co-Executive Produced by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor and Jim Jones (Mad TV).

MFF: MOM FRIENDS FOREVER

MFF: Mom Friends Forever (20 episodes) is a docu-comedy series that goes inside the worlds of Judi Diamond and Kate Frisina-White--two mom best friends from St. Louis, Mo., who have a lot to say. Between juggling work (at a radio station and grocery store), kids (two each) and relationships (marriage and divorce), they also produce and star in a web show just for moms. Together, they're living their dream of connecting with other parents while laughing along the way. MFF: Mom Friends Forever is executive produced by Coolfire Originals (Welcome to Sweetie Pies).

NICKMOM NIGHT OUT

NickMom Night Out (26 episodes) is a stand-up comedy series that takes moms out for a night at the comedy club from the comfort of their couches at home. Featured hosts include Tisha Campbell-Martin (LA edition), Judy Gold (NY edition), Caroline Rhea (Orlando, Fla., edition), and Bonnie McFarlane (Chicago edition). The series spotlights the chaos and hilarity that comes with being a parent. NickMom Night Out is executive produced by Bob Mittenthal (Double Dare).

WHAT WAS CAROL BRADY THINKING?

Here's the story of a lovely lady - who somehow kept six kids, a husband, a housekeeper and a dog in perfect order with nary a complaint. What Was Carol Brady Thinking? (26 episodes) goes inside the mind of one of the most iconic moms of all time through graphic overlays on top of the original The Brady Bunch series, allowing viewers to read Carol Brady's thoughts throughout each episode. This NickMom twist on the classic series is executive produced by Jim Burns (MTV Unplugged) of Top Dog Incorporated.

Coming to TV in 2013:

MY 63 MOMS

My 63 Moms (13 episodes) is a docu-comedy series starring comic and new mom, Andrea Rosen, who speaks to different types of moms seeking advice and confirmation that she is not alone in the insanity that is motherhood. Each week she'll visit a few families, have a meal, a nap, and hear their stories and insights as she struggles to determine what's right for her and her child. The series is Executive Produced by Linda Schaffer and Barbara Kanowitz of Hot Air Productions and Andrea Rosen.

NickMom sponsors include Reckitt Benckiser, General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, and Target. These deals include brand integration, content development and sponsorships across both the NickMom TV block and NickMom.com site.
