The influence of viral videos on today’s kids will be on full display as Nickelodeon US gets set to premiere its newest game show WebHeads on Monday, June 2 at 6 p.m. (ET/PT).
Produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, and hosted by Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush), the series follows kid contestants as they compete in viral video-themed elimination challenges.
In each round, some of the internet’s most watched viral videos will be featured as contestants must predict their outcomes and guess their popularity before their instincts are voted on by the studio audience.
Ryan Seacrest and Adam Sher are executive producing the series, which will anchor Nick’s weekday live-action block.
WebHeads is also being supported online, via the Nick App and across mobile web. Cross-platform features include mini-games (U-Tubed, Log On/Log off and Moment of Impact), sneak peeks, full episodes, and a special series of Carlos Cam short-form videos.
From June 3, the series will be available for download via iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Sony, Vudu, Nook and Fios Flex View.
