Come one, come all. This seems to be the theme as of late with many of the top Hollywood studios creating stories around or within VR. And the latest to join the fleet is none other than Nickelodeon. They have just announced the start of production on a brand-new original TV movie, Inside Voice.
Starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger, Splitting Adam, Rufus), JoJo Siwa (JoJo Siwa: My World, Dance Moms) and Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad, Legendary Dudas), this live-action comedy tells the story of a kid who, after a comical VR mishap, starts speaking every thought he has out loud. Jace Norman who is the main character in the movie puts on a pair of virtual reality glasses at the mall and suddenly loses his “inside voice.” Norman becomes unable to control his thoughts and starts spewing it out loud.
Making matters worse, Jeremy is running for student council president against his classmate Milly (Daniella Perkins), who is full of great ideas to improve the school. Desperate to get back to normal, Jeremy and his sister Victoria (JoJo Siwa) must figure out how to convince his brain that he can speak up for himself.
The VR sequences featured in Inside Voice are being developed and created by Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab, the network’s new division spearheading long-range research and development efforts around new technologies for Nick and its audience. Inside Voice is the third project for air to feed through the Entertainment Lab, joining Lincoln Loud “Live” and Nick’s upcoming TV movie Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.
Nickelodeon has started production for Inside Voice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is being executively produced by Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia. Amy Sydorick will be serving as producer and Jace Norman is serving as co-producer. The TV movie itself was written by Adrian Vina and is directed by Michelle Johnston.
Nickelodeon is one of the top entertainment brands that distributes content oriented for kids and adolescents. I know that when I was growing up I would watch their shows all the time such as Hey Arnold! We are looking forward to learning more about Inside Voice as more information becomes available. This sounds like a great filler between the time that Ready Player One releases.
