Nickelodeon Latin America (Latinoamérica) will start to premiere and show Vikki RPM, the networks brand-new teen drama series inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet that follows two kart racers who fall in love despite their families’ rivalry, in July (Julio) 2017!:
Vikki RPM gives a fun new twist to the story of Romeo y Julieta, taking it to the race track of Ciudad del Este, where Max and Victoria compete and fall in love despite the rivalry between their two families. Both run as they are; Max is a serious and methodical boy, while Victoria is impulsive and mischievous. On the track they are rivals, but outside the world of go-karting, they are inseparable. It is a dangerous sport, but the real danger lies in falling in love with your opponent. Vikki RPM will be shot entirely on location in Miami with Latin American talent.
Based on an original idea by Eduardo Jiménez-Pons and produced by Somos Productions for Nickelodeon Latinoamérica, Vikki RPM is being filmed at Viacom International Studios (VIS), the production hub for Viacom International Media Networks Americas, and on location in several areas in Miami. The series is being written by Catharina Ledeboer (Grachi, Talia in the Kitchen, I Am Frankie, Every Witch Way, W.I.Ts Academy, Isa TKM), Lara Martínez and Rocio Lara (Skimo, Plaza Sésamo, Waking Up with You).
