5 Fun Facts About "Henry and the Bad Girl"!

We have a HUGE Henry Danger special airing Saturday May 2nd at 8PM (7c)!! Here are 5 fun facts about "Henry and the Bad Girl"

1.  We didn't have enough space on set to make the entire "SWELLVIEW" sign, so we just made the last 2 letters-- "EW"



2.  Oliver's funny cousin Krisha is named after our AMAZING Casting Director, Krisha Bullock.*

*Our Krisha only sometimes smells people's mouths to find out what they had for lunch.


3.  The spray paint used for this episode was actually face make up! We used it because it's non-toxic, so we could spray it on set. 


4.  We needed 8 stunt people on set to film "Henry and the Bad Girl"-- but our cast really did a LOT of their own stunts!!


5.  We brought in a graffiti artist to come in and spray paint our set with us so it looked like we'd really been tagged by a graffiti gang!

Fans Get Grounded

Henry and Piper are trapped at home together when they break the rules in Saturday, April 4th’s ALL-NEW Henry Danger, “Kid Grounded”.


I asked fans to tell me about a time they got in big trouble, and picked a few of my favorite responses. Thanks so much to EVERYONE who contributed!! :)


I’m taking a moment of silence for this harsh punishment.



Pics or it didn’t happen!


Your grandparents are still grounding your Mom?? What did she do? I have so many questions.


WOAH, that sounds pretty epic. What was the first thing you threw??*

*I do NOT endorse this!



WOW, that’s a first! Grounded from your OWN ROOM!! But you’re right, it’s for a good cause!


That was FUN, let’s do it again sometime! Henry Danger is on Saturday’s at 8PM (7C), only on Nickelodeon! :)

I think you should stop eating so many gummy bears before bed, Alison.

 This is a lesson, kids: Never fall half asleep or your parents will turn into elephants.


Everyone go call your cousin, now! COUSIN APPRECIATION!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Valentine’s Day

noun | ˈva-lən-ˌtīnz ˈ
: the holiday where people who like (or love) each other are pressured into to buying cards, flowers, and/or candy for their sweetie. 
Valentine’s Day can be challenging.  It’s hard to know the perfect thing to tell that special person.  Luckily, I did the work for you.
Print these cards and give them to all your Valentines.  And if you really want to impress that special someone… with the card, also include flowers, chocolates, or a fresh hundred dollar bill.  Nothing says “I love you baby!” like money. 


This post inspired by Saturday February 14th’s ALL-NEW episode of Henry Danger: My Phony Valentine which premieres at 8:00 PM (7c) on Nickelodeon! 








And, if you’re more of an AUDIO/VISUAL Valentine, shoot over this ULTRA romantic poem:

#AskDanWarp: How long it takes to make an episode


@Real__Andrew asks: @DanWarp #AskDanWarp How long does it take to make an episode of a show?



DAN SCHNEIDER:  Interestingly, I get asked this question a lot.  I'll do my best to explain, but there’s no precise answer to this question, because some episodes are more complex than others.  But in general, here’s how it works…

Someone on the writing staff will pitch an idea for an episode (me or one of our other writers/producers).  Then, if we all like the idea, we decide, "Okay, we're doing it – this is going to be an episode."

Next, we’ll usually spend a few hours working on the broad beats – those are the main, basic things that will happen in the episode.  On average, it probably takes us around 3 hours to come up with the broad beats.


Once I approve the broad beats, the next step is for us to write the outline.  That means we flesh out (expand) the broad beats, coming up with a more detailed written plan for the episode, i.e. what the script will be.  On average, it takes us about half a day (around 5 hours) to write a full outline.  Some get done quicker -- some take longer.  It's just like writing a song.  Sometimes you write a song in 15 minutes.  Sometimes it takes weeks.  You can't put a clock on being creative.

Let's add up where we are so far:  The process to take an idea to broad beats, and then to an outline, usually takes a full day – sometimes 2.

Next, it takes us about 2 days to write the script – to get a first draft.  There have been times when we've written a whole script in one day.  But that's unusual and kind of stressful.  It's a more comfortable pace for us to take a day to write the first half, and then another day to write the second half.



Then it takes another day (maybe half a day) to finalize the script.   That means fixing any problems, making the jokes funnier, and cutting it down so it's the right length.

Next, the cast performs a “table read” of the script on a Monday morning, with writers and producers present.  Then we spend that whole week tweaking (perfecting) the script while the actors rehearse it on stage, where the sets are.  We film the show on Thursday and Friday.

Total days so far: 8

Once the episode has been filmed (once it's "in the can"), we take about 2 or 3 weeks to do post production on the episode.  During that time, we:
  • Edit the episode (put it all together)
  • Make tweaks to the edit
  • Add music and sound-effects
  • Add visual effects
  • Color correct the picture
  • Etc.
And once I approve everything – picture, sound, music, etc. – the episode is delivered to the network.

So, on average, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks to make an episode – from coming up with the idea, to delivering the final product.
Now you know. :)
Thanks for asking.  Keep watching!
Best,
Dan Schneider (aka @DanWarp)
