After citing plans in its upfront presentation to co-develop content with AwesomenessTV, Nickelodeon has now officially greenlit a 13-episode comedy from the DreamWorks Animation-owned youth online channel.

The new half-hour sketch comedy will premiere on the kidsnet on July 1 and will feature a mix of new and existing YouTube content from AwesomenessTV, which was purchased by DreamWorks last month for a price tag of $US33 million.

The move to cable is becoming an increasingly popular one in the online video space. Last year, Nickelodeon greenlit two live-action series starring Internet star Lucas Cruikshank (Fred: The Show and Marvin Marvin). YouTube sensation Annoying Orange also found a second home on Cartoon Network last year.
