  • show Description
  • Whoopi Goldberg, the five-time Kids' Choice Award-winner, presents a new live-action series about four young girls on a very successful girls soccer team. The players, however, are as diverse as you could think. One is a tomboy, one is an A+ student destined for an Ivy League college, one is a rebel, and one is a popular girl. This series chronicles their lives both on and off the soccer field, seeing how each deals with both personal and social issues.Developed by Goldberg, who has to her credit at least one of just about every prestigious award out there, including the Emmy, the Oscar, the Grammy and the Tony Award, she is also an executive producer, as are Tom Leonardis, David Brookwell ("Even Stevens") and Sean McNamara ("That's So Raven")."Just For Kicks" was originally scheduled to premiere in September 2005, but due to production delays, was moved to April 2006. The show will premiere on April 9th with a one-hour event from 7-8 pm ET/PT in Nickelodeon's TEENick programming block. The show then moves to its regular time, Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT.moreless
