Nickelodeon UK dives into Guru Studio’s Big Blue

Toronto-based kids and family content producer, Guru Studio has secured a new broadcast deal with Nickelodeon UK for its newest series, Big Blue.

The 52 x 11-minute underwater adventure comedy was commissioned by CBC Kids and Radio-Canada and is set to premiere in Canada later this year, and on Nicktoons in the UK in January 2022.

Previously announced broadcasters already on board include ABC Me in Australia, CTC Kids in Russia, and NRK in Norway.

“Nickelodeon is the perfect home for this hilarious series that the whole family can enjoy,” said Jonathan Abraham, vp of sales and business development at Guru Studio. “Viewers in the UK are going to love this creator-driven series that’s packed with comedy and high-stakes adventure.”

Louise Bucknole, vp kids programming at ViacomCBS Networks UK & Ireland, added: “We have no doubt Big Blue will be the perfect addition to our Nicktoons line-up as we explore their comic underwater world. We’re looking forward to introducing these fresh characters and sharing their many adventures with the viewers around the UK.”

Big Blue follows sibling underwater adventurers Lettie and Lemo, who lead a quirky submarine crew with a magical ocean fairy stowaway named Bacon Berry.
