New Trailer for 'The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story' Doc Film
"You can't. Do that. on TV." Gravitas has released an official trailer for the documentary titled The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story, which has been in the works for years. We first featured a teaser trailer for this back in 2017, after it was successfully funded on Indiegogo in 2016, but it has taken another three years for it to finally get a release. The Orange Years chronicles the rise of Nickelodeon, with the actors, writers, and creators from all the golden age Nickelodeon shows that shaped your lives. It's wild. It’s crazy. It changed the world. The film profiles Geraldine Laybourne, the visionary who turned the company into an $8 billion success, focusing on her "kids first" strategy. "More than just a history lesson or a 'where are they now?' special, the doc explores the network's revolutionary approach to storytelling, the impact it had on a generation of youth, and [tries] to find out of why these shows have stayed in the hearts of so many people."
