Nickelodeon USA To Premiere 'Blurt' On Monday 19th February 2018

Update - Original Nickelodeon USA Press Release:

NICKELODEON TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL TV MOVIE, BLURT, ON MONDAY, FEB. 19, AT 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT),


STARRING HENRY DANGER’S JACE NORMAN, JOJO SIWA AND DANIELLA PERKINS



Nickelodeon will premiere a new original TV movie, Blurt (formerly Inside Voice), on Monday, Feb. 19, at 7:00 (ET/PT), starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger, Splitting Adam, Rufus), JoJo Siwa (Lip Sync Battle Shorties) and Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad). The live-action comedy tells the story of Jeremy Martin (Jace Norman) who, after a comical virtual reality mishap, starts speaking every thought he has out loud and to complicate matters, he happens to be running in the school election.



Jeremy Martin is a nice-guy and when he puts on mysterious virtual reality glasses at the mall, he suddenly loses his “inside voice” and starts spouting every thought he has 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 virtual reality sequences featured in the movie 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. Blurt is the second on-air project fed through the lab, following Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.

Blurt is executive produced by Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia. Amy Sydorick is serving as producer. Jace Norman is serving as co-producer. The TV movie was written by Adrian Vina (Liar, Liar Vampire) and is directed by Michelle Johnston (Another Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits).

When nice-guy Jeremy Martin (Jace Norman, Henry Danger) puts on mysterious virtual reality glasses at the mall, he suddenly loses his “inside voice” and starts spouting every thought he has out loud. Making matters worse, Jeremy is running for student council president against his classmate Milly (Daniella Perkins, Knight Squad), 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.


Below is Nickelodeon's official description for Blurt:

"When an accident causes Jeremy to say everything he thinks out loud, he’s in for a world of trouble! Now in the middle of running for class president, he’s about to learn the hard way that some thinks are better left unsaid. If he wants to win, he will have to learn to control his blurts – and keep the embarrassment to a minimum - while still giving a voice to the voiceless."

Online on Nick USA's brand-new official Blurt movie website and on the Nick App, fans can find out more about Nickelodeon all-new film, and watch exclusive videos, including Nickelodeon's Blurt teaser trailer and a super sneak-peek!
