Europe – Nickelodeon takes rivalry to a whole new dimension in the brand-new, sci-fi competition series Massive Monster Mayhem (20 half-hour episodes), premiering Wednesday 17th January 2018 at 20:30 on Nickelodeon Italy (Italia). Co-created by Artur Spigel (founder of 7ate9 Entertainment) and Michael Chaves, and produced by DHX Media, the CGI-animated series features live-action gameplay by real-life kids who compete in futuristic athletic challenges for a chance to win prizes and save the Earth from total destruction.
In each episode of Massive Monster Mayhem, three real-life kid heroes are placed in a fictional alternate universe to compete in a gauntlet of intergalactic challenges in order to become Earth’s champion. Contestants are eliminated through a series of three rounds, which culminate when the last player standing faces off against one of overlord Master Mayhem’s monsters to save the planet. Each action-packed episode features two hosts who provide fun commentary during gameplay and non-stop hijinks from Master Mayhem and his monsters. Massive Monster Mayhem is executive produced by Spigel, together with Steven DeNure, Anne Loi, Asaph Fipke, Ken Faier, and Josh Scherba of DHX Media.
