MoviePilot may have tricked us about “As Told By Ginger”

I know we’re all excited about “As Told By Ginger” returning, but if you do some research, you’ll see that it all looks like fake news.

Many sources such as NYLON, Teen VogueBustle, and BuzzFeed all reference MoviePilot for breaking the news, but when you click the MoviePilot link, the post has been deleted.

I read the MP article yesterday and this was the quote that they “reportedly” got from Russell Hicks, President of Content Development & Production at Nickelodeon Groups (reprinted by NYLON):
“You have to remember people who are going to watch really don’t have a recollection of As Told By Ginger. You have to make it relevant to them but also nod to the audience that is going to be interested,” Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon Group’s president of content development and production told the site.
Interestingly enough, the same quote was said by Hicks about the new “Hey Arnold” movie in an article from November 2015, according to Variety.
“You have to remember people who are going to watch really don’t have a recollection of ‘Hey Arnold,’” he added. “You have to make it relevant to them but also nod to the audience that is going to be interested.”

I can’t find an article that doesn’t reference MoviePilot as their first source of news, so it looks like whoever wrote this about the beloved early ’00s show faked its quotes and story entirely, and now their editor probably fired them and deleted the article.
