The moment we’ve all been waiting for since the early aughts might be coming sooner than we think. SNL comedian Kenan Thompson is in the process of developing a new kids comedy sketch show called Skoogle with his former team members from the iconic 90s/00s show All That.
Alongside Thompson is Albie Hecht, the former President of Nickelodeon Entertainment and original executive behind All That, and former co-star Josh Server. Hecht is currently the Chief Content Officer of pocket.watch, “a media brand that creates, acquires, distributes and curates content for kids age 2-11 across a variety of platforms.” Hecht said in a statement to Shadow and Act that he is looking forward to teaming up with Thompson again.
“Kenan Thompson is a comedic genius,” he said. “At Nickelodeon, I witnessed first-hand Kenan and his fellow cast members’ ability to turn everyday scenarios into hilarious adventures. I’m very excited to have the opportunity to once again re-team with Kenan and bring premium sketch comedy to a new generation of fans.”
The new show will be a premium sketch comedy show featuring Thompson as the voice of SKOOGLE, an Amazon Echo or Google Home-like digital assistant that helps kids with their everyday issues. Skoogle will aim to satirize everything from service apps to streaming entertainment to social media.
