NICKELODEON SADDLES UP FOR RIDE
NEW live-action series premieres in the UK on 7th November at 7pm on Nick at Nite
London, 27th September, 2016 – Ride gallops onto Nick at Nite on 7th November, at 7pm. Set and filmed in the UK, the live-action series follows Katherine “Kit” Bridges (Kendra Leigh Timmins), a North American girl who moves to England when her widowed father accepts a job at the illustrious Covington Academy: an elite equestrian focused boarding school. What may seem like a dream come true on the surface becomes far more complicated when Kit realizes more than just her nationality and fear of riding separate her from her peers at Covington. An instant connection to TK, the most stubborn and difficult horse at the academy, opens a door to a whole new world of adventures for Kit with friends, frenemies, crushes, hidden secrets and the chance to uncover her true identity. Ride will air weekdays at 7pm on Nick at Nite.
In the premiere episode, Kit’s adventures begin when she arrives at Covington Academy excited for her first day at the school. However, things take a turn for the worse when Kit realizes she’ll be expected to conquer her biggest fear – riding a horse. Meanwhile, Elaine will do whatever it takes to win in the first competition of the year and both Will and Nav want to ask Kit to the Gala, but who will Kit go with? Audiences can watch this episode a week before its Nickelodeon premiere on nick.co.uk or on Nick Play available on iOS and Android.
Ride stars Kendra Leigh Timmins as Kit, Jonny Gray (Max & Shred) as Josh. The cast also includes British actors Rameet Rauli as Anya, Oliver Dench as Will, Manuel Pacific as Nav and Alana Boden (Mr Selfridge) as Elaine.
Ride was produced by Breakthrough Entertainment (Max & Shred) and Buccaneer Media.
