TWO GIRLS FROM BROOKLYN CREATE A GAMING EMPIRE IN NICKELODEON'S NEWEST LIVE-ACTION COMEDY SERIES, "GAME SHAKERS," PREMIERING SEPT. 12 AT 8:30 P.M. (ET/PT)

Original Online Games, Apps from the Series Available on Nick.com and Other Platforms Starting in September with Release of 'Sky Whale' App in Apple, Google and Amazon Stores

Series Marks the Return of '90s Nick Star Kel Mitchell and The Haunted Hathaways' Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores Jr.

YouTube Sensations GloZell, Lasercorn and ProJared Make Featured Cameos in Premiere Episode

Santa Monica, Calif. - (Sept. 2, 2015) - A pair of Brooklyn 12-year-old girls become unlikely gaming moguls when their school project becomes the biggest mobile game of the year in Nickelodeon's new live-action comedy series, Game Shakers, premiering Saturday, Sept. 12, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Created by hit-maker Dan Schneider (iCarly, Victorious, Henry Danger), the new series centers on middle-school students Babe (Cree Cicchino), a girl who dreams big, and Kenzie (Madisyn Shipman), a kid who can code. Together they create the biggest mobile game of the year named Sky Whale and team up with rap superstar Double G ('90s icon Kel Mitchell), his son Triple G (Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores Jr.) and schoolmate Hudson (Thomas Kuc) to launch their own gaming empire.

Tying the show to today's kids' love of gaming and apps, the games created by Babe and Kenzie in the series will be made available to kids to play on Nick.com and through the Nick app. The first game to be released will be Sky Whale, featured in the premiere episode, which will be available for free in September in the Apple, Google and Amazon app stores. The Sky Whale game challenges players to bounce through the sky and to keep a narwhal up in the air, using clouds and crazy objects to go higher and farther, even into outer space or on an underwater adventure.

Game Shakers' premiere episode features cameo appearances from YouTube's pop culture comedians and gaming entertainers including GloZell, Lasercorn and ProJared. The debut episode will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons, and will be available at the same time on Nick.com and on the Nick app. Following its linear debut, the premiere episode will be available for free on iTunes for one week.

After an app they create for their school science project unexpectedly turns into the biggest mobile game of the year, Babe and Kenzie use their profits to start Game Shakers, a super-cool gaming company based in Brooklyn, N.Y. Not realizing they illegally sampled a song in their game from superstar rapper Double G, the girls decide to make him their business partner along with his son Triple G as a game consultant. Together, Babe, Kenzie, their schoolmate Hudson, Triple G and Double G work to make Game Shakers a huge success in the gaming world.

For Game Shakers games, videos and full episodes, Nickelodeon fans can head to Nick.com or the Nick app. Viewers can also follow the show on Twitter @GameShakers, on Instagram @GameShakers and "like" it on Facebook here.
