"The Thundermans" Coming Soon To Nickelodeon !
The entertainment news website Deadline.com is reporting that Nickelodeon has announced the exciting Nickelodeon News that, after ordering the pilot, Nickelodeon has decided to greenlight the brand new live-action Nickelodeon original family comedy series "The Thundermans" to become a full television series and has ordered 13-episodes!
As part of the pickup, the network has recast one of the two leads, with upcoming Nickelodeon Star and actor Jack Griffo replacing Tyler Peterson who played the part in the pilot. Created by Jed Spingarn, the show is about The Thundermans, a typical suburban family that happens to have astounding superpowers. At the center of the action are the 14-year-old Thunderman twins (Griffo, Kira Kosarin), who share the same bathroom, the same school, and the same annoying little siblings. Their only difference? The sister is a super student with a super sunny disposition who super looks forward to being a superhero someday, and her twin brother is a super villain. Rosa Blasi and Chris Tallman play the parents; Diego Velazquez and Addison Riecke also co-star.
"The Thundermans" marks the third pilot from Nickelodeon's most recent batch of pilots to get a series order, following "Sam & Cat" and "The Haunted Hathaways", which both were picked up for 20 episodes. Nickelodeon greenlit the pilot for "The Thundermans" at Nickelodeon Upfront 2012. Nick is expected to announce more brand new shows and pilots at Nickelodeon Upfront 2013.
