Nickelodeon, Imagine Kids+Family to Develop Live-Action Space Series


Nickelodeon is working with Imagine Kids+Family on a live-action sitcom about a group of kids accidentally launched into space.

The Untitled Space Show (working title) will be written by Daniel Knauf, who also serves as showrunner and exec producer alongside Imagine Entertainment Chairmen Brian Grazer and Ron Howard and Stephanie Sperber, president of the Kids+Family division.

“Working with Brian, Ron and all the creative voices at Imagine to create this project for Nickelodeon is a dream come true,” said Brian Robbins, president of Nickelodeon. “They have an insatiable love for storytelling and content creation that resonates globally, and we’re excited to explore this new adventure together for kids and families.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Nickelodeon to expand upon Imagine’s legacy telling great stories set in space,” said Sperber. “Dan’s vision blends real science with compelling storytelling in a way that will engage young audiences around the world.”
