"With 'Blue's Clues, ' Nickelodeon launched what became TV's first generation of interactivity for preschoolers and set the bar for quality, curriculum-driven shows we have made since", Zarghami said.
"Blue's Clues" is returning to Nickelodeon for a 20-episode reboot. This includes Los Casagrandes, a new companion series for the animated hit The Loud House that's gone into development; Pony, an animated comedy series developed by Nick International in the United Kingdom; and Musical Dares, a short-form series created and executive produced by Nick Cannon.
Among those series is a remake of the pre-school classic Blue's Clues. Steve Burns hosted from 1996 to 2002, and Donovan Patton took over for the next four years. "The format of the show works pretty well, and I don't think they are going to mess with it that much". An animated and puppet spinoff, "Blue's Room", ran 17 episodes from 2004 to 2007. Here's your chance to show off your talent and hosting skills. Part of the appeal of the "Blue's Clues" host in the past has been their ability to talk to viewers at home and get them to continue to pay attention as the program's narrative unfurls. It received nationwide acclaim for telling an entire storyline through the entire episode, even though most children's shows tell stories "magazine style", where the episode is broken up into segments, according to Deadline.More news: Here's How Much Money Jerry Jones Had To Repay The NFL
For its reboot, Nickelodeon is searching for a new host.
The casting call notes that the ideal host has "a comedy background, a natural connection with the camera, and [is someone who] will empower the home viewer to feel important, respected, and smart". "There's an inherent nostalgia from our audience", she said.
