First Teaser Trailer for Doc 'The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story'
"No one really knew if it was going to end up being successful." A teaser trailer has debuted online for a documentary titled The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story. Yes, indeed, this is a doc film about Nickelodeon's amazing golden age era where they were known for their iconic orange logo. The film profiles Geraldine Laybourne, the visionary who turned the company into an $8 billion juggernaut, focusing on her "kids first" strategy. As someone who grew up a part of this generation, I'm definitely interested in seeing it. "More than just a history lesson or a 'where are they now?' special, the documentary explores the network's revolutionary approach to storytelling, the impact it had on a generation of youth, and aims to find out of why these shows have stayed in the hearts of so many people." That sounds great! Get your first look below.
