( 4UMF NEWS ) Kel Mitchell Is Returning To Nickelodeon:
Growing up in the 1990s, many of us fell in love with Kel Mitchell’s humor (and adoration of orange soda) from the hit Nickelodeon series All That and Kenan And Kel.
Thankfully, Nickelodeon has hired Mitchell for a new series, Game Shakers. Besides reuniting with the prominent studio, Mitchell will also be working with the creator of both All That and Kenan And Kel, Dan Schneider.
The show will also star Cree Cicchino and Madisyn Shipman who will be two 12-year-old girls that collaborate with Mitchell’s character, hip-hop mogul Double G, to launch a multimillion-dollar gaming company.
Of the project, Schneider told Variety, “If someone were making a list of the top 10 funniest comedy actors today, Kel Mitchell easily makes that list. It’s a privilege to work with anyone that talented. It’s the same kind of feeling I’ve had in the past, working with entertainers like Jack Black and Jim Parsons. But with Kel, there’s also this great nostalgic feeling as we work together now.”
Schneider, who is also the creator of the hit shows iCarly, Zoey 101 and Victorious, continued by stating, “My writing/producing career began back in 1994 when I co-created All That and Kenan & Kel with my friend, Brian Robbins. Kel was a huge part of those shows, and then he starred in Good Burger, the first movie I wrote and co-produced. Even back then in the ’90s, working with Kel was magical. You never knew what insane, hilarious comedy he was going to add to scenes. Today, I swear, somehow he’s gotten even better.”
Mitchell told Entertainment Weekly about his new role by sharing it is a dream come true:
“I get to play a hip-hop mogul who is the comedic version of artists like Kanye, Diddy, Eminem and 50 Cent. Double G is a rapper/singer/dancer/entrepreneur/[and] investor, which gives us great story lines on the show. I love playing such a wild character, because you will see some great physical comedy, but he also has heart; he is a single dad that loves his son, Triple G, played by the very talented Benjamin ‘Lil P-Nut’ Flores, Jr. There are so many layers to this character that it is one of those dream-come-true roles.”
Game Shakers will premiere on Nickelodeon in September 2015.
