Nickelodeon has greenlit a new comedy from “Big Time Rush” creator and executive producer Scott Fellows titled “100 Things To Do Before High School.”
The kids’ channel ordered 26 episodes of the half-hour, single-camera series that follows three best friends as they navigate the highs and lows of middle school, with the help of a bucket list of adventures that help them overcome class cliques, terrifying bullies and clueless teachers.
Production on the new series will begin in Los Angeles in the fall.
The series stars CJ Parker as Isabela Moner, who has only a short time left to make the most of her middle school years. Together with her two lifelong best friends Fenwick (Jaheem Toombs) and Crispo (Owen Joyner), she is determined to get the most out of this time, using an ever-expanding list of challenges as a guide. For this group, growing up means trying everything and taking chances while they still can.
“Crossing that bridge into high school is a milestone and a journey filled with taking chances, expressing yourself and building friendships,” said Nick’s president of content development and production, Russell Hicks, in a statement.
He continued, “Kids will be able to relate to this coming of age comedy that embodies that crazy and sometimes magical time in their lives.”
Aside from creating Nick hit show “Big Time Rush,” Fellows also created and executive produced “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” and DHX Media’s “Johnny Test.” Previously, he worked as a staff writer on “The Fairly OddParents,” for which he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music and Lyrics for the show in 2003.
