NBC, UNIVERSAL BRAND DEVELOPMENT AND LEGO UNLEASH TWO-PART "LEGO(R) JURASSIC WORLD: THE SECRET EXHIBIT" ON NOV. 29

All-New Animated Special Inspired By the Blockbuster "Jurassic World" Franchise and Leading Toy Brand, LEGO, to Debut Exclusively on NBC

NEW YORK - Nov. 8, 2018 - NBC has partnered with Universal Brand Development and the LEGO Group for the upcoming debut of a two-part animated special: "LEGO(R) Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit." The all-new animated special - inspired by the blockbuster Jurassic World franchise - will air Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The story takes place before the adventures of Jurassic World in 2015. In the special, Simon Masrani has an idea for a new attraction that is guaranteed to keep Jurassic World at the forefront of theme park entertainment. It's the greatest thing since the discovery of dinosaurs, but in order for it to succeed, he needs his right-hand can-do problem solver, Claire Dearing, to get a trio of dinosaurs across the park to the new, super-secret exhibit. Reluctantly teaming up with newcomer Owen Grady, the animal behaviorist she hired sight unseen to deliver the dinosaurs, the duo set out on a fun-filled adventure across the island. Unfortunately, delivering the dinosaurs to the new attraction is not as easy as they thought.

The two-part special will be available to stream the morning after the NBC broadcast, Nov. 30, across multiple platforms, including the NBC app and NBC.com, where it can be viewed without a login, as well on Hulu and On Demand. It will also be available for download from major digital retailers. The DVD, with exclusive bonus content, drops Jan. 15, 2019.

ABOUT LEGO JURASSIC WORLD: THE SECRET EXHIBIT

With the grand opening of Jurassic World's new super-secret dinosaur exhibit just days away, only one thing is missing ... the dinosaurs! In order to get the job done, Simon Masrani enlists his newly hired assistant, Claire Dearing, to ensure the new attraction opens on time ... or else. Unfortunately, Owen Grady, the animal behaviorist Claire hired to deliver the dinosaurs, is late. Things aren't looking too good for Claire or Owen, who just wants to deliver the dinosaurs, collect his paycheck and get off the island. But the mission to deliver the dinosaurs turns out to be far more difficult than anyone could have imagined. From a runaway Gyrosphere, hang-gliding with a Pteranodon (how did they get out of the Aviary?!), to a high-speed game of chicken with a T-Rex, Owen will earn his paycheck and then some. And Claire may just get promoted to Assistant Manager of Park Operations. Along the way, we get the first inklings of why Owen and Claire drive each other crazy, but despite their differences, they succeed and make a great team. Oh, and Owen meets Blue for the first time as he discovers he has a way with dinosaurs he never knew about!
