Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the Nordic region's leading streaming company will launch brand new live action series Taylor's Island (working title) as its next Viaplay Original. The fast-paced series targets children aged 6-11 and follows Taylor Young, a girl who is fascinated by the secrets surrounding a mysterious island. Taylor's Island will premiere on NENT Group's Viaplay streaming service later in 2021.
In this action-packed comedy we meet Taylor Young, a girl who is fascinated by the mystery and phenomena surrounding a mysterious island, ever since her uncle's disappearance there. With a gang of friends, including Nori, a wisecracking local rebel; Meesha, a tough-as-nails thrill seeker; Ellis, a hypochondriac and born worrier; and Taylor's little sister Lila, an aspiring vlogger, Taylor is determined to get to the bottom of the secrets and inexplicable events of Bermuda. In the pursuit of the truth, the friends go on an adventure of a lifetime, facing endless beaches, hidden treasures, cryptic riddles, a town bursting with colorful Caribbean culture and thrilling legends waiting to be unraveled.
Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group Chief Content Officer: "Viaplay already offers the popular Nickelodeon content, and to co-produce Taylor's Island is a natural next step to further strengthen our partnership with ViacomCBS. This creative live action series is fast-paced, fun and filled with adventures and mystery which will appeal to our youngest viewers."
The 20-episode long series Taylor's Island is a cooperation between Nickelodeon International and ViacomCBS-owned Australian free-to-air broadcaster, Network 10 and produced by Fremantle. The series will premiere globally and on NENT Group's streaming service Viaplay later in 2021.
