Nickelodeon’s New Boss Says He Wants To Bring Back ‘All That’
Brian Robbins said he actually would have never canceled the show in the first place, according to an interview he did with the hollywood reporter. Robbins, who has worked with Nickelodeon for years, said “All That” was actually the first show he ever produced, then “Kenan & Kel” and “The Amanda Show” came after.
Robbins said he was at “Saturday Night Live” recently with Kenan Thompson, who grew up on “All That” and “Kenan & Kel,” and reminisced on good times.
It was my first time seeing him on the show and I really wanted to cry,” Robbins said. “I was so proud. I’ve known the kid since he’s 14 years old. All That ran for 10 years. I would’ve never, ever, ever canceled the show. It should’ve been (Nickelodeon’s) Saturday Night Live. All That was a very sophisticated show. Young humor, but the level of comedy on that show was sophisticated.”
So, when asked about a comeback, Robbins told The Hollywood Reporter to not be surprised.
Robbins took the job at Nickelodeon while also putting more than 20 movies into development, including a remake “Indecent Proposal” and a new live-action “Rugrats” movie. He also has two features currently in production including a live-action “Dora the Explorer” and one — the Tiffany Haddish-starring “Nobody’s Fool” — that hit theaters this weekend.
