On Monday, August 24 at 7:30 PM ET/PT, Nickelodeon will be launching a brand new animated series titled Shimmer and Shine via their Nick and Nick Jr. channels. The series consists of 20 episodes and will focus on twin genies in training, Shimmer and Shine, who grant all sorts of wishes for their friend Leah. Unfortunately for the trio, the wishes frequently lead to all sorts of mishaps that they have to fix.

Targeted towards preschoolers, Shimmer and Shine showcases a social-emotional curriculum that highlights the importance of teamwork, resourcefulness, and perseverance. The series is a brainchild of Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz post-production supervisor for Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!) and produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif. Following its U.S. launch, Shimmer and Shine will debut on Nickelodeon’s international channels beginning this fall.

“The beautiful fantasy world of Shimmer and Shine offers endless possibilities for magical adventures and preschoolers will love the genies’ playful humor and enthusiasm,” said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s President of Content Development and Production. “First-time creator Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz is a homegrown success story who started as an intern at Nick 10 years ago. She epitomizes the diverse talent and empowering spirit that comes from the Nickelodeon Animation Studio.”
