their school project becomes the biggest mobile game of the year in Nickelodeon’s
new live-action comedy series, Game
Shakers, premiering Saturday, Sept. 12, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
Created by hit-maker Dan Schneider (iCarly, Victorious, Henry Danger),
the new series centers on middle-school students Babe (Cree Cicchino), a
girl who dreams big, and Kenzie (Madisyn Shipman), a kid who can code.
Together they create the biggest mobile game of the year named Sky Whale
and team up with rap superstar Double G (‘90s icon Kel Mitchell), his
son Triple G (Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores Jr.) and schoolmate Hudson
(Thomas Kuc) to launch their own gaming empire.
Tying the show to today’s kids’ love of gaming and apps, the games
created by Babe and Kenzie in the series will be made available to kids
to play on Nick.com and through the Nick app. The first game to be
released will be Sky Whale, featured in the premiere episode, which will
be available for free in September in the Apple, Google and Amazon app
stores. The Sky Whale game challenges players to bounce through the sky
and to keep a narwhal up in the air, using clouds and crazy objects to

Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons, and will be available at the same
time on Nick.com and on the Nick app. Following its linear debut, the
premiere episode will be available for free on iTunes for one week.
After an app they create for their school science project unexpectedly
turns into the biggest mobile game of the year, Babe and Kenzie use
their profits to start Game Shakers, a super-cool gaming company based
in Brooklyn, N.Y. Not realizing they illegally sampled a song in their
game from superstar rapper Double G, the girls decide to make him their
business partner along with his son Triple G as a game consultant.
Together, Babe, Kenzie, their schoolmate Hudson, Triple G and Double G
work to make Game Shakers a huge success in the gaming world.
