Nickelodeon announced this week that it will be reviving two of its most popular retired titles: Legends of the Hidden Temple and Hey, Arnold!.
The revival will be short but hopefully sweet. Legends of the Hidden Temple is being adapted into a live-action TV movie based on the popular 90s game show and Hey, Arnold will see a two-part TV movie coming. A release date for the two television events has yet to be announced.
“There’s a tremendous amount of attention on kids these days. What that says is there’s a tremendous amount of opportunity – not unlike what is going on in the grownup space,” said Cyma Zarghami, president of Viacom’s cable networks aimed at kids and families. “There is just more content everywhere.”
With the new programming announcements, Nickelodeon also revealed a new slate of "happy reality" programs, like All In, which will follow Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and Crashletes, a half-hour series that will feature viral sports clips.
