NICKELODEON LAUNCHES NEW NICKJR.COM SITE WITH RESPONSIVE DESIGN FOR MULTIPLE DEVICE SUPPORT AND BRAND-NEW ANIMATED PRESCHOOL SERIES, "FRESH BEAT BAND OF SPIES"

NEW YORK--June 10, 2015--Nickelodeon launched today its newly redesigned NickJr.com website that lets preschoolers play and learn from their favorite characters from the network's hit shows, like Blaze, the pups from PAW Patrol and Dora. Taking its cues from Nick's innovative design for its Nick.com and Nick App, the preschool site features user-friendly navigation, a fully responsive design for mobile, tablet and desktop, and access to full episodes for Nick Jr. channel subscribers. It also contains more content for kids than ever before, including the exclusive digital-first debut of the brand-new animated preschool series, Fresh Beat Band of Spies. Based on Nick's live-action preschool hit show, The Fresh Beat Band, and featuring a problem-solving curriculum, Fresh Beat Band of Spies will also be available on the Nick Jr. App and will premiere Monday, June 15, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on the Nick Jr. channel.

"The new Nickjr.com is modeled after our successful stable of digital properties--Nick.com, the Nick App and the Nick Jr. App--encouraging kids to explore, learn and have fun," said Matthew Evans, SVP, Digital, Viacom Kids and Family Group. "We know kids and parents want to engage with Nick Jr. in a variety of ways, so we wanted to offer a content-rich experience that includes hundreds of episodes, educational games and exclusive short-form videos that also performs beautifully across multiple devices."

The new NickJr.com website allows preschoolers to interact with and learn from popular characters from the net's top-rated preschool series--including PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Dora and Friends: Into the City! and Wallykazam!--anytime, anywhere and on any web-enabled device with mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.

At launch on Nickjr.com, preschoolers and their parents can access a variety of educational activities, alphabet buttons that trigger pop-up surprises, over 100 games, over 100 on-demand episodes as part of consumers' pay-TV subscriptions, plus over 1,000 short-form videos including curriculum moments, music videos, funny mashups, and exclusive first looks. The NickJr.com show page for Fresh Beat Band of Spies will also feature music videos and a brand-new online game, "Mummy Museum Mayhem."

Fresh Beat Band of Spies is a fast-paced animated musical series filled with high-tech transforming gadgets, new friends and sly villains. The show features the beloved original live-action show cast as the voices of the animated characters along with hit songs from the Fresh Beats' live tour and brand new music. In the series, the four best friends in a pop band--Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout--are recruited to be super spies. The group, along with their friend Bo Monkey (voiced by Tom Kenny, SpongeBob SquarePants), uses their unique individual talents and the coolest spy gadgets to outwit a goofy cast of bad guys and solve an endless series of wild mysteries.

In the Fresh Beat Band of Spies series premiere, "The Wow Factor," the Spies take on Sindy Sauernotes, (voiced by Tia Mowry-Hardrict, Instant Mom), a singer who cheats in the Wow Factor singing competition. Jerry O'Connell (Sliders) also guest stars on Fresh Beat Band of Spies as infamous treasure hunter Arizona Jones in "Mummy Mayhem," airing Friday, June 19, on the Nick Jr. channel. Fresh Beat Band of Spies is created by Nadine van der Velde and Scott Kraft, the same duo behind The Fresh Beat Band, and airs regularly weekdays at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on the Nick Jr. channel.

NickJr.com will offer access to more new episodes and series than ever before. A limited number of episodes are available free for everyone and users can watch an expanded selection of full-length episodes of Nick's hit preschool shows on the new website, including favorites like PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Wallykazam!, and Dora and Friends : Into the City!, by signing in through participating TV Everywhere providers which collectively reach approximately 75 million homes.
