Nickelodeon has commissioned its first original online series for the UK and Ireland and enlisted the voice talent of John Boyega for animated series Tinkershrimp & Dutch. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star will voice Dutch, while Sam Riley (Free Fire) will voice a miserable headless chicken.

London-based creative agency Ralph is producing the 5×5′ series, which will premiere across Nick.co.uk platforms and the on-demand service Nick Play from January 15. The series follows two best friends, a langoustine (Tinkershrimp) and a loris (Dutch), who are time-traveling bodyguards for an eccentric monarch.
