VIMN Readies for MIPCOM


Viacom International Media Networks will present two new Nickelodeon kids’ shows this fall at MIPCOM, which will take place Oct. 7-10 in Cannes, France.

In the preschool category, VIMN is prepping “Paw Patrol,” produced by toy company Spin Master Entertainment. The CG action-adventure series stars a pack of six heroic puppies that are led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder.

The second offering will be the live-action series “Sam & Cat,” a spin-off of the popular Nick shows “iCarly” and “Victorious.” The new series, which follows Sam Puckett of “iCarly” and Cat Valentine of “Victorious” as they start a babysitting service, had the biggest live-action launch on Nickelodeon in three years when it premiered in the U.S. to 4.2 million viewers.
