Nickelodeon is set to debut its new original TV movie, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, on October 9. The movie is based on the children’s book of the same name by author Chris Grabenstein.

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library stars Casey Simpson (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn), Breanna Yde (Nickelodeon’s School of Rock), Russell Roberts (Twilight Saga: New Moon), AJ Rivera and Klarke Pipkin. The TV movie follows a group of friends whose overnight stay in a new high-tech library turns into a daring adventure of escape.  Jim Head, Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia are executive producers, with Amy Sydorick serving as producer.

The book was published in 2013 by Random House Children’s Books and had a 109-week run on the The New York Times Best-Seller list. Grabenstein’s next novel is the third Lemoncello Book, Lemoncello’s Great Library Race, which will be published on October 10.

The new TV movie joins Nickelodeon’s growing film slate, which includes upcoming projects Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie and Tiny Christmas.
