Toronto’s Breakthrough Entertainment has teamed up with Nickelodeon and Corus Entertainment’s YTV to bring the new live-action comedy series Max & Shred to North American audiences this October.
The new series (26 x half hours) is currently filming in Toronto, Canada. It’s being produced by Breakthrough Entertainment, with financial support from the Shaw Rocket Fund.
The original series will premiere on October 6 on Nickelodeon US, and then in Canada on YTV the next day.
Positioned as an odd couple bromance, Max & Shred follows the friendship of superstar snowboarder Max Asher and scientific whiz-kid Alvin Ackerman. The boys become roommates and eventual friends, navigating the trials of teen life from different realms of the social sphere.
The series is executive produced by George Doty IV (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Scooby Doo story editing). Additional executive producers include Breakthrough Entertainment’s Joan Lambur, Ira Levy, Peter Williamson, Nat Abraham and Michael McGuigan.
