During this unprecedented time amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s incredibly important for us all to be “together at home.” We can all unite and show support towards one another (virtually), while also doing our part to help slow down the virus and stay indoors. Nickelodeon is giving viewers a kid’s-eye view of life during the Coronavirus through the #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall special airing on Monday, March 30th at 7:00 PM (ET/PT). Hosted by profound actress Kristen Bell, “the special will directly address kids’ questions and concerns, include tips and insights from medical experts on ways to be healthy, and give first-person accounts from kids and families around the country who are social distancing and making changes to their everyday lives and relationships” (source: press release).
Celebrity guests including Josh Gad, Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, social media star Charli D’Amelio, and Ciara and Russell Wilson, among others, will be gathering together via video from locations across the nation. In addition, consummate musician Alicia Keys will be performing. Dr. Nadine Burke Harris (California Surgeon General) and Dr. Vivek H. Murthy (former U.S. Surgeon General) will also be a part of the one-hour special to give kids more insight and ideas on how they can stay healthy.
Kristen Bell shared her enthusiasm over hosting the impactful special and said, “It’s so important to remember that we are all in this together, and our kids and loved ones need outlets to help them process and understand what’s going on and, most importantly, to still feel connected. I hope kids and families come away from this special feeling a little more comfortable and that they enjoy some much-needed moments of humor during this difficult time.”
Kids and their families can tune into #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall, which will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons. The special will also be available on Nick On Demand, Nickelodeon’s YouTube, the Nick app and the Nick Pluto TV channel following the premiere.
