Top Elf on Nickelodeon will give us five one-hour episodes starting in December with seven contestants trying to win holiday-themed challenges for a chance to have their wishes granted. On Top Elf the wishes will be granted for someone in their community giving us all warm feelings. From what it sounds like below, Top Elf kid contestants will be building and designing things we normally think of our North Pole Elf Team taking care of.
What a wonderful idea especially with all the DIY fans out there, plus you get to add on a special wish granted for a community member, Top Elf on Nickelodeon is a show we are really looking forward to. Hopefully there will be some competitions where the kids will have to make some classic wooden toys and maybe even trimming a tree or making homemade ornaments while wearing special elf costumes.
Holiday-Themed Competition Show Top Elf Premieres December;
Top Elf, which begins production in September on five one-hour episodes, features kid contestants with extraordinary building and design skills competing for the coveted title of Top Elf.
In Top Elf, Santa has invited seven civilian “Elf-testants” to the North Pole in a competition that tests their skills in a series of holiday-themed challenges. Demonstrating the true spirit of the holidays, the Elf-testants compete to have their wish lists granted–not for themselves, but for someone in their community.
Top Elf is created by Mike Duffy and Tim Duffy of Ugly Brother Studios, who will executive produce the series along with Jimmy Fox at Main Event Media, an All3Media America company. Bob Schermerhorn (Project Runway All Stars, America’s Next Top Model) and Lisa Fletcher (The Titan Games) are executive producers, with Fletcher also serving as the showrunner. Nickelodeon’s Vice Presidents of Unscripted Content Paul J Medford and Mandel Ilagan also serve as executive producers. Michael Pearlman (Chopped, Project Runway All Stars) will direct the series.
