Created and written by Billy Lopez (The Wonder Pets, 3rd & Bird!, Peg + Cat) and executive produced by creative exec Michael Pecoriello (Yu-Gi-Oh!), the 20-episode series follows three kids as they explore their fantastical apartment building, aptly named the Wayne.
The toon’s voice cast includes Alanna Ubach (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) as Ansi, the anxious new kid in town; Lopez as Olly Timbers, the adventurous 10-year-old son of a toy maker and a military scientist; and Dana Steingold (Avenue Q musical) as Saraline Timbers, Olly’s responsible and more mature little sister.
Prior to getting the full-length treatment, Welcome to the Wayne was Nickelodeon’s first digital short-form series, which debuted in 2014 as six four- to five-minute eps on the Nick App and Nick.com.
The series’ encore episodes will air on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. on Nickelodeon. Fans can also get to know the Wayne by following the brand’s official Instagram account, and a sneak peek full-length episode will be available beginning June 19 on Nick.com and the Nick App, along with platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation and Nick On Demand.
