Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias is learning the truth about cats and dogs…
The 44-year-old Mexican American stand up comedian/actor will serve as the host of Nickelodeon new competition show Unleashed, which seeks to find the most entertaining pet in America.
The first two episodes of 10 will premiere back-to-back on October 22 at 7:00 pm ET/PT.
The comedic competition series will corral the most impressive animal acts together to compete for the title of “Most Entertaining Pet” of the night in front of a jury comprised of kids and celebrity judges including Peyton List, Preacher Lawson and Utkarsh Ambudkar.
“We have a squirrel that can water ski, enough said! You have to watch Nickelodeon’s Unleashed!” said Iglesias.
Each episode of Unleashed will feature three animal-loving pet owners and their loyal companions as they take the stage to showcase their pet’s extraordinary talents. From jaw-dropping tricks to hilarious skills, the pet contestants demonstrate their unique abilities — but anything can happen once the cameras start rolling. Acts throughout the season include the aforementioned water-skiing squirrel, a cheerleading goat, a hedgehog with a knack for agility tricks and a soccer-playing horse.
Unleashed is produced by Fremantle, with Jayson Dinsmore and Joni Day serving as executive producers.
The series is directed by Ivan Dudynsky.
