The Nightlife (Teen Nick series)

Nick Cannon, the Chairman of the Teen Nick network division of Nickelodeon, conceived a show that would bring the American Bandstand model to today’s teenagers. Nick is the show’s MC and VJ. Along with his co-hosts, Aaron Fresh and Chloe Wang, they play the hottest music videos and conduct interviews with the biggest stars of pop & hip-hop, movies and TV while fifty teenagers dance and enjoy the show in-studio. Each episode features a live performance by a popular act such as Colette Carr, The School Gyrls, Iyaz and dance group, Poreotix.

The 360 degree set had over 200 built-in lights to help create maximum excitement, and the lighting system was designed to support the rock-concert, nightclub vibe. But the actual lighting approach was also quite serious in its intention to make the hosts and celebrity guests look fabulous on-camera, as befits a network production.
