A new TV series based on Ubisoft’s Rabbids video game franchise will make its debut on Nickelodeon this August.
“Rabbids Invasion,” created and produced by Ubisoft, follows the curious, irreverent and unpredictable creatures as they discover, explore and often wreak havoc in the human world. The series will premiere on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and will come to Nickelodeon’s international channels in the fall.
"‘Rabbids Invasion’ brings the wacky comedy and characters from Ubisoft's ‘Raving Rabbids’ video games to U.S. TV for the first time, and we think kids are going to really have fun watching them on their chaotic adventures," says Russell Hicks, president of content development and production, Nickelodeon. "This series will be a terrific complement to our top-rated lineup of original animated comedies on Saturday mornings."
The video game brand first appeared in 2006 and already has a number of licensed products, which Ubisoft hopes to expand into apparel, accessories, toys, back-to-school and more.
