Santiago of the Seas with Creator Niki Lopez

Season 2, Episode 40,  Nov 20, 2020, 04:00 PM

This episode we had the pleasure of interviewing Niki López creator and co-executive producer of Nickelodeon’s new animated preschool series, Santiago of the Seas. Infused with a Spanish-language and Latino-Caribbean culture curriculum, the action-adventure series follows 8-year-old Santiago Montes, a brave and kind-hearted pirate, as he embarks on daring rescues, searches for treasures and keeps the high seas safe from villains like the nefarious pirate Bonnie Bones in a fantastical Caribbean world.

Latinx viewers grew triple digits and accounted for well over a third of the overall K 2-5 viewership. Finally, more than 40% of the premiere’s audience were brand-new preschool viewers to Nickelodeon. Inspiration for the series, which features Spanish-language instruction and  highlights Latin-Caribbean cultures: Puerto Rico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, and more!
