If we’ve learned something about fairies from television recently, it’s that they run the risk of being viciously attacked by vampires. Something tells me Nickelodeon’s scripted comedy pilot Bad Fairy will be taking a somewhat less violent, more upbeat approach to the fictional, magical beings.
Deadline reports that Nick has given the greenlight to Bad Fairy, a comedy pilot written/executive produced by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, which follows two young teens, one of which happens to be a rebellious fairy, while the other is described as “adorkable.” The two form a bond and pair up to battle the awkwardness of adolescence and fairy life together.
Given the continued interest in supernatural-themed stories in film and television, this sounds like it’ll fit the trend while also appealing to the network’s audience of iCarly and Victorious-watching kids. Production is set to begin on the pilot in Los Angeles next week.
Bad Fairy joins Marvin, Marvin as another Nick pilot in the works. Marvin follows an “intergalactic new kid in school who clumsily tries to adapt to his new life as a human teenager.”
