Jace Norman and JoJo Siwa will be teaming up with Daniella Perkins to form the main cast of the new Nickelodeon original TV movie Blurt that will premiere on Monday, February 19th at 7:00 P.M. and we couldn’t be more excited. The movie, originally titled Inside Voice, has Jeremy Martin, played by Jace Norman, having a virtual reality disaster where he has no filter and says anything that he is thinking. This problem is happening at the same time as he is running in the school election, which complicates the issue, but we are sure will make for some funny scenes with Daniella Perkins, who will be playing the classmate the is running against, Milly.
Jeremy will need the help of his sister Victoria, played by JoJo Siwa, to figure out how to get this filter back so he doesn’t get into so much trouble. There are going to be some awesome virtual reality sequences in the movie that are created by Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab, who were responsible for Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library sequences as well.
We are in love with the movie idea and think Nickelodeon did some great casting for Blurt as Jace Norman and JoJo Siwa will make a great team. This ability to Blurt out whatever you are thinking is something most teenagers have thought about once or twice (and maybe even blurted out things themselves) so it will be something easily relatable for everyone. You can see a preview of the show below, but if you want a real laugh check out the digital short from the film called Class Participation, that will really get you ready to watch the movie.
NICKELODEON TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL TV MOVIE, BLURT, ON MONDAY, FEB. 19, AT 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT),
STARRING HENRY DANGER’S JACE NORMAN, JOJO SIWA AND DANIELLA PERKINS
Nickelodeon will premiere a new original TV movie, Blurt (formerly Inside Voice), on Monday, Feb. 19, at 7:00 (ET/PT), starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger, Splitting Adam, Rufus), JoJo Siwa (Lip Sync Battle Shorties) and Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad). The live-action comedy tells the story of Jeremy Martin (Jace Norman) who, after a comical virtual reality mishap, starts speaking every thought he has out loud and to complicate matters, he happens to be running in the school election.
Jeremy Martin is a nice-guy and when he puts on mysterious virtual reality glasses at the mall, he suddenly loses his “inside voice” and starts spouting every thought he has out loud. Making matters worse, Jeremy is running for student council president against his classmate Milly (Daniella Perkins), who is full of great ideas to improve the school. Desperate to get back to normal, Jeremy and his sister Victoria (JoJo Siwa) must figure out how to convince his brain that he can speak up for himself.
The virtual reality sequences featured in the movie are being developed and created by Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab, the network’s new division spearheading long-range research and development efforts around new technologies for Nick and its audience. Blurt is the second on-air project fed through the lab, following Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.
