If you were a kid in the 90s, you probably have some great memories of Nickelodeon. The net’ has had an long history, and is prepped to tell its tale.
Nickelodeon is a little tough to explain. It was, and remains today, a kid-centric network. That in and of itself might not be all that unique, but it definitely was back when it first aired.
In the 90s, there wasn’t much like it. Actually, given its way-out programming and off the wall feel, it’d probably be accurate to say there was nothing like it. Sure today it’s got some legendary shows, and content that fans are still talking about decades after the fact, but back then it was a risky venture to say the least.
All of what went into it is about to be laid bare too, as Nickelodeon sets itself up to officially tell its story for the first time ever. It all comes due in a little film called The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story.
For millions of children and adults, the Nickelodeon Network is synonymous with growing up. In just a few years, the channel grew from a small local channel to an international phenomenon that helped shape a generation. Led by trailblazing visionary Geraldine Laybourne and her commitment to putting kids first, a group of unconventional heroes turned an underdog channel into an $8 billion dollar juggernaut as the golden standard for children’s programming.
The Orange Years chronicles the rise of Nickelodeon, with the actors, writers, and creators from all the golden age Nickelodeon shows that shaped your lives. It’s wild. It’s crazy. It changed the world.The Orange Years press release
