THE MURPHY FAMILY SETS OUT TO REVERSE THE CURSE IN NICKELODEON'S ALL-NEW ORIGINAL COMEDIC TV MOVIE "JINXED," PREMIERING FRIDAY, NOV. 29, AT 7 P.M. (ET/PT)

Movie Features Nick Stars Big Time Rush's Ciara Bravo and The Thundermans' Jack Griffo

NEW YORK - Oct. 30, 2013 - The Murphy family sets out to reverse the curse in Jinxed, Nickelodeon's hilarious brand-new original TV movie starring Ciara Bravo (Big Time Rush) and Jack Griffo (The Thundermans), premiering on Friday, Nov. 29, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). The 90-minute comedy follows the misadventures of Meg Murphy (Bravo) whose family has been magically cursed with "Murphy's Law", a spell of never-ending bad luck. Meg sets off on a zany journey to break the 100-year-old jinx that has caused the Murphys to become the unluckiest family ever.

"Jinxed is Nickelodeon's fun and contemporary take on the old adage of 'Murphy's Law,' infused with a positive message to embrace who you are," said Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. "Ciara Bravo and Jack Griffo team up to take fans on an amazing larger-than-life journey filled with humor, action and romance."

Jinxed follows Meg Murphy (Bravo), a 14-year-old girl whose family has been magically cursed with "Murphy's Law." While spending the summer at her grandpa's (Jay Brazeau) house, Meg develops a friendship with a local cutie named Brett (Griffo). The possibility of romance probes Meg to discover the way to break the family's "if anything can go wrong, it will" curse. She and her daredevil little brother, Charlie (Jacob Bertrand, Marvin Marvin), set off on a hilarious, calamity-filled adventure to try to turn their family's luck around once and for all, and give Meg the normal life she's always dreamed of living.

Jinxed is executive produced by Scott McAboy (Swindle, Big Time Movie, Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh). The movie is directed by Stephen Herek (The Mighty Ducks, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and the Academy Award-nominated Mr. Holland's Opus) from a teleplay by Aury Wallington (Sex and the City, Veronica Mars, Cupid's Christmas) and Neal Israel, based on an unproduced script by Bill Timoney.
