“With trancy beats crunched smoothly into Hanna Reids’ angelic voice, the “California Soil” remix dominates into seemingly simplistic yet brilliantly crushing vibes of stellar techno bliss. ” –Hollywood Sentinel

“Californian Soil” is the irrefutably beautiful third record from London Grammar, whose success and longevity as a band has stood the test of time for over a decade. Following its premiere, the band released their return single the perfect electropop cut “Baby It’s You,” arriving as their follow up to their 2017 UK #1 album “Truth Is A Beautiful Thing.” The single, co-produced by George FitzGerald, hit an impressive 40-plus New Music Friday’s across the globe. The band also performed the single and a stirring cover of The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights as part of Radio 1’s Live Lounge Month. They also performed the single proper on Later…With Jools Holland (the third time they have guested on the lauded BBC show).
About Hannah Reid 
Frontwoman Hannah Reid has been on a journey of self-discovery. After a reported long and frustrating period of feeling powerless over her own path as an artist, the singer/songwriter has–with the support of her two friends and fellow bandmates Dan Rothman and Dot Major–claimed her role as leader of the British trio, a shift that soon restored her clarity of purpose. Reid guided the band through the making of their most dynamic album yet, a decidedly feminist and utterly transportive body of work.

“London Grammar’s sound and songwriting has matured to a level of experimentalism and bliss that lends their work to a level of creativity that knows no bounds. Not only are they the “perfect looking” band, they also sound simply perfect. A stellar, brilliant trio of massive talent and genius whose current body of work will proudly stand the test of time.”  –Hollywood Sentinel

Nickelodeon in the News

According the The Hollywood Reporter, “The U.K. Government will allow a number of film and television productions to be exempt from following quarantine rules and resume filming safely this summer” cites Casting Networks.

Nickelodeon Reports: 

Nickelodeon bakes up a birthday surprise with Cake My Day, a one-of-a-kind special executive produced by television host Rachael Ray and culinary expert Amirah Kassem.  Hosted by Kassem, founder of Flour Shop in New York and creator of the sprinkle-filled Rainbow Explosion Cake, the special gives a deserving kid the opportunity to bake the cake of their dreams.  Cake My Day airs Friday, July 17, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Said Ray, “With my favorite unicorn Amirah Kassem spreading her signature sprinkles and smiles, Cake My Day is a delicious celebration that I can’t wait to share with families everywhere.  This is a show guaranteed to fill your day with color and cake!  And will leave you racing into the kitchen to use Amirah’s tips and tricks to whip up some crazy creations of your own.”

Said Kassem, “I’m so, so excited to show the world how we can all use birthdays to create more joy for everyone around us. Cake My Day was born out of a way of life I like to call the ‘Birthday Lifestyle,’ where we live everyday like it’s our birthday by being with our favorite people, dressing in our favorite clothes, and of course, eating our favorite foods!  It’s more important than ever to remember that we can all create happiness through celebration, and no matter what is happening in the world, we need to celebrate one another.  Full of surprises, my hope is that Cake My Day will inspire kids, and adults, to live the birthday lifestyle and celebrate their family and friends.  We need to keep spreading magic, rainbows, glitter, unicorns and eating cake!”

In Cake My Day, Kassem invites Charlotte, a triplet who has never had a birthday that felt like her own, to her colorful kitchen to bake a Rainbow Explosion Cake together.  Charlotte, however, has no idea that her brothers Oliver and Sam have secretly planned for the day of cakemaking to turn into the biggest surprise birthday celebration she has ever had.  The special also features an appearance by DIY content creator Karina Garcia and a performance by dance superstars The Lab.

Cake My Day is produced by Propagate, with Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens and Kevin Healey executive producing, and Watch Entertainment, with Rachael Ray and Jonny Umansky serving as executive producers. Amirah Kassem also executive produces, along with Nickelodeon’s Unscripted Content executives Rob Bagshaw, Mandel Ilagan and Stacey Carr.  Production of Cake My Day for Nickelodeon is overseen by Rob Bagshaw, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content.

It’s Pony 

Nickelodeon announced this month that  it has greenlit a 20-episode second season of its new hit animated series, It’s Pony, which follows the comedic adventures of Annie and her best friend, who just so happens to be an enthusiastic, impulsive, and carefree pony. Season two will premiere domestically in 2021, followed by a rollout across Nickelodeon’s international markets.

It’s Pony is currently one of the top three animated series with Kids 2-11 across all TV, only behind Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and The Loud House. The premiere of It’s Pony (1/18/20) was Nickelodeon’s highest-rated animation launch with Kids 2-11 since 2018.

“The overwhelming reaction to the first season of It’s Pony has been phenomenal, and fans have been champing at the bit for a second season,” said Nina Hahn, Senior Vice President of Development and Production, Nickelodeon. “We are thrilled to greenlight season two of a show where no matter what happens, everything is better when Annie and Pony are together.”

In season two of It’s Pony, Annie and her ever-loving, ever-funny Pony take their city by storm. Whether they are crashing a comic convention or battling a swarm of revenge-seeking flies, Annie and Pony’s adventures test the limits of their friendship like never before. Pony’s unpredictability may be a lot to handle, but Annie wouldn’t have it any other way. Throughout everyday life and extraordinary shenanigans, Annie’s life is better with Pony around.

The series stars Jessica DiCicco (Adventure Time) as Annie, an optimistic and determined farm girl living in the city with her family and best friend Pony; Josh Zuckerman (Strange Angel) as Pony, who is naïve and impulsive, but loves Annie more than anything; Abe Benrubi (E.R.) as Dad, who treats Pony as a nuisance, but recognizes the special bond he shares with Annie; and India de Beaufort (All Hail King Julien) as Mom, who loves Annie and Pony’s relationship and always has a new prank in the works. Created by Ant Blades, It’s Pony is inspired by a short from Nickelodeon’s 2015 International Animated Shorts Program.
