PREPARE FOR THE SUPER POWERED LAUNCH OF THE THUNDERMANS
It’s Super High-School Hijinks in New Tween Comedy The Thundermans, Premiering on Monday 7th April at 5:30pm on Nickelodeon
London, Thursday 6th March – Super-powered, teenage twins Max (Jack Griffo) and Phoebe (Kira Kosarin) take sibling rivalry to superhuman heights in new series The Thundermans, premiering on Monday 7th April at 5:30pm. If living in a family of extraordinary superheroes is not difficult enough, Phoebe and Max go to the same high school and must juggle friends, crushes and their dislike of each other all whilst trying to keep their true identities secret.
Thanks to the cosmic game of genetic roulette, these twins are complete polar opposites, 14-year-old Phoebe is an overachieving straight-A student and her twin brother Max is a super villain wannabe. It is a constant battle in the Thunderman household as both twins are turbocharged by freeze breath and the power to move objects via telekinesis but while Phoebe strives to use her powers for good, Max embraces his dark side. Brother Billy (Diego Velazquez) moves at super speed, while younger sister Nora (Addison Riecke) cuts solid objects with her laser beam eyes. Rounding out the family are parents Hank (Chris Tallman) who possesses extraordinary strength and the ability to fly and Barb (Rosa Blasi) who can generate lightning from her hands. Ultimately, the family must attempt to keep their powers under wraps and lead a “normal” life… but can life ever be “normal” in a family of superheroes?
Created and executive produced by three-time Emmy Award-winner Jed Spingarn (Big Time Rush, Jimmy Neutron), the half-hour series introduces new Nick talent Kira Kosarin and Jack Griffo. Multi-instrumentalist, singer-song writer and actress Kira Kosarin makes her Nickelodeon debut as superheroine Phoebe Thunderman. Viewers will recognise Jack Griffo from his recent role starring in Nickelodeon original TV movie Jinxed, Griffo has also achieved You Tube success with his acoustic covers of popular songs attracting over two million views.
In the premiere episode “Adventures in Supersitting,” we meet the Thunderman family for the first time and Phoebe and Max are left with the annoying task of babysitting younger siblings Billy and Nora. Viewers can look forward to a premiere week of new episodes of The Thundermans from Monday 7th April at 5:30pm, the series will then air regularly every Monday from 14th April at 5:30pm on Nickelodeon.
