Nickelodeon will launch a brand new comedy / sci-fi series this Friday, September 18th, called The Troop. The series, which kicks off with a mini-marathon of three episodes starting at 8pm, will be a mix of live action and CG animation. The story takes place in high school, where kids are just struggling to get by. Sounds normal, right? Well, there’s also a secret society made up of a few kids, and their job is to manage their town’s paranormal population, with an ultra high-tech Troop headquarters, and equipped with the latest paranormal-fighting weapons and technology. Not so normal now! Be sure to check out the show’s companion site, the TroopGrid, which the characters will also be frequenting.
