A new animated show titled Sanjay and Craig is getting ready to premiere on Nickelodeon this May 25, 10:30 am, followed by an international premiere in early 2014. The 20-episode series is produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios.
Sanjay and Craig is created and co-executive produced by Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf. These first-time creators were teamed with award-winning writers and producers Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi (The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Alvin and the Chipmunks). The series follows 12-year-old Sanjay (Maulik Pancholy) and his best buddy, a snake named Craig (Chris Hardwick) as they go on various misadventures throughout their suburban neighborhood.
“The comedic and outrageous adventures of Sanjay and Craig deliver the perfect yet distinctive mix of weird, wonderful and random humor that is both unconventional and modern, which this post-millennial world has a strong affinity for,” says Russell Hicks, President of Content Development and Production.
