Nickelodeon Launches Animated Series Ollie’s Pack


Ollie’s Pack, a new Nickelodeon original action-comedy series, is slated to premiere next week.

The Nelvana-produced program centers on Ollie, his two best friends and his backpack, which monsters use as a portal to travel from the Monsterverse to Earth. As Ollie and his pals try to protect the Earth from the dangerous escaped monsters, they often call upon the more helpful monsters to assist with their everyday tween problems. Ollie’s Pack premieres on Nickelodeon on Monday, April 6.

Nickelodeon will air new episodes of Ollie’s Pack Mondays through Thursdays the weeks of April 6 and April 13. The series is slated to debut internationally later this year, reaching over 170 countries and territories. It stars James Hartnett (Cupcake & Dino) as Ollie, Ana Sani (Mysticons) as Cleo and David Berni (Rocket Monkeys) as Bernie.

Nina Hahn, senior VP of development and production at Nickelodeon, said: “Ollie’s Pack is filled with excitement, humor and heart, and we are thrilled to welcome Ollie and his friends to Nickelodeon’s incredible family of original characters.”

Chris Rose, VP of animation production and development at Nickelodeon, added: “I can’t wait to introduce a new generation to the timeless tale of a boy growing up and finding his place, while simultaneously trying to save the world.”
