July 16, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – Distribution360 has licensed the programming rights for season one (26 x 30 minutes) of the hit physical game show Splatalot to Nickelodeon in the U.S. Produced by award-winning content creation company marblemedia, Splatalot is scheduled to premiere in the United States with two back-to-back episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 17 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT.
“Partnering with Nickelodeon is really an exciting turning point for this show,” said Matt Hornburg, Managing Partner, Distribution360. “With Splatalot’s international success, we are confident that this series will bring U.S. audiences lots of laughter and entertainment.”
Available in over 100 countries worldwide, Splatalot is a hilarious medieval-themed physical game show targeted to Kids 8-12 years-old. The series features a larger-than-life extreme obstacle course with heaps and loads of splats and spills.
Hosted by Jason Agnew and Matt Chin, each episode features a different group of 12 thrill-seeking teen contestants, dubbed Attackers, competing in three hilarious rounds: Cross the Moat, Escape the Stockade and Capture the Crown. The Defenders of Splatalot, an international squad of nine costumed gladiators, do their best to protect the castle from the Attackers– leaving only one in each episode to be crowned King or Queen of Splatalot.
