It looks like Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert — aka the creators of one of our fav shows of all time Austin & Ally — are headed to Nickelodeon!

The network just picked up their new series Cousins For Life, and the pilot is going to premiere on March 31st.

“We began our careers at Nickelodeon and we couldn’t be more excited to be back,” said creators and executive producers Kopelow and Seifert, who were also behind the Nickelodeon hit All That. “We have an amazing cast and we can’t wait for the audience to meet them.”

The new buddy comedy centers on 12-year-old cousins Stuart (Dallas Young) and Ivy (Scarlet Spencer), best friends who come from very different backgrounds, and learn to navigate life under one roof with their families.

After Stuart’s mom is deployed overseas, his fun-loving dad Clark (Ishmel Sahid) decides to move the family to Portland to live with his uptight brother Lewis (Ron G.) and his family, which includes Stuart’s confident, socially active cousin Ivy and her younger, overly-curious brother Leaf (Micah Abbey).  Now living in a brand new city, Stuart embarks on a variety of endeavors with Ivy that lead to hilarious adventures. Although the cousins do not always see eye-to-eye, Ivy and Stuart learn they are better together, and when they team up, they are unstoppable.

Cousins For Life begins production in Los Angeles this summer, and the series is scheduled to air later this year.
