Nick Opens Shorts Program to Comic-Con Pitches

Nickelodeon for the first time will hold an open call for original animated projects at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego.

The network’s animation development team will take in-person pitches at the Nick booth on the convention floor from Thursday, July 24, to Saturday, July 26, to green light a project for its global Animated Shorts Program.

The pitch chosen will be developed into a short with the potential to air on Nickelodeon, appear on www.nick.com or the Nick App, or even be developed into a long-form animated TV series.

Nickelodeon’s Comic-Con booth this year features a windowed pitch room at its center, where the network’s animation development team will hold the open call during select times each day. The team’s meetings will be with Comic-Con attendees, as well as with distributors scouted during the convention.

Participants seeking appointments must register in advance at www.nickshortspitches.com, where information, guidelines, requirements and restrictions are posted. Deadline to register is Friday, July 18.

The Animated Shorts Program most recently produced a green light for 13-episodes of The Loud House by first-time creator Chris Savino (Rocko’s Modern Life, The Powerpuff Girls).
