Cam Newton has achieved many of his childhood dreams: He’s a Heisman Trophy-winner, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, an NFL superstar, has played in a Super Bowl and is the 2016 NFL MVP. Not bad for a man who is only 27 years-old!
And in his new Nickelodeon docuseries, All In With Cam Newton, the athlete will kids achieve their own dreams. The 20-episode series, hosted by Newton, pairs kids with unique mentors who lend their expertise in a variety of fields, like gymnastics, animation, basketball and even government. It’s like Made, but for kids; and it’s totally adorable. But unlike the Emmy-winning TV series on MTV, the kids features on All In are genuinely talented to begin with.
A few of the once-in-a-lifetime experiences this season’s lucky kids will experience include: perfecting a gymnastic routine with three-time Olympian Dominque Dawes, learning tricks with illusionist David Copperfield, and designing a runway gown with Project Runway’s Tim Gunn. In one episode, Cam even brings a civic-minded kid to visit the First Lady at the White House! And in each of the adventures, Newton acts as the kids’ sidekick, confidant and cheerleader.
Newton is absolutely charming on the show; his vibrant and joyful personality makes even this diehard Bears fan cheer for #TeamCam. And he works well with kids; he’d be perfect to host a future Kids Choice Sports awards for Nickelodeon.
All In With Cam Newton > Nickelodeon > Fridays at 8pm ET beginning June 3
