Nickelodeon has acquired worldwide TV rights to Breakthrough Entertainment’s new 26 x half-hour live-action comedy series Grounded, which heads into production this summer in Toronto.

The tween-targeted show stars two teenaged Greek goddesses who are cast out of Mount Olympus and sent to Earth to work at their mortal Uncle Gus’s pita shop in a suburban mall.

Paula Hart (Melissa and Joey and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch) of Hartbreak Films and Breakthrough’s Ira Levy, Peter Williamson and Joan Lambur are on-board to executive produce.

Nickelodeon channels around the world are expected to premiere the series in spring 2013.
