"Fred 3: Camp Fred" on Nickelodeon is a TV movie starring internet sensation Lucas Cruikshank, following previous hits "Fred: The Movie" and "Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred."

School's out for the summer and the fast-talking, hyper teenager Fred Figglehorn is headed to camp. Based on one of the most popular internet characters of all time, the third installment of the hit TV movie franchise also features Tom Arnold as Floyd the camp director, WWE Superstar John Cena as Fred's imaginary dad, Charlie Carver ("Desperate Housewives") as Hugh Thompson, the resident jock, Daniella Monet ("Victorious") as Fred's sassy best friend Bertha, Jake Weary ("As the World Turns") and Carlos Knight ("Supah Ninjas") as Fred's rivals.

In "Fred 3: Camp Fred," Fred's mom (Siobhan Fallon Hogan) enrolls him in the world's worst summer camp — the dilapidated Camp Iwannapeepee. Fred is miserable until he meets a motley group of campers who teach him what camp is really about — making new friends. Together, Fred and his new friends, Magoo (Joey Bragg), Dig (Adrian Kali Turner, "Bad Teacher," "The Walking Dead"), Spoon (Leah Lewis), and Chatter (Matthew Scott Miller), are determined to muster up the strength and confidence to beat their rivals at the nearby posh Camp Superior in the annual Summer Camp Games.

"Fred 3: Camp Fred" is executive produced by Brian Robbins of Varsity Pictures, Michael Green, Gary Binkow and Evan Weiss of The Collective, and Lucas Cruikshank. The movie is written by Drew Hancock ("Supah Ninjas," "Fred: The Show") and directed by Jonathan Judge ("Fred: The Show," "Big Time Rush").

"Camp Fred" marks the third TV movie, following previous hits "Fred: The Movie" and "Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred." Nickelodeon recently green-lit "Marvin, Marvin," a new original half-hour comedy series starring Cruikshank, which follows the exploits of Marvin, an alien teen who is trying to fit into life on earth while living with his human family. In 2008, the Nebraska teenager created the popular Fred character in a series of YouTube videos which have been viewed more than 900 million times. The latest digital iteration of the character features a new animated series on the Fred YouTube channel titled "It's Fred." In 2010, Cruikshank was named one of "10 Comics to Watch" by Daily Variety and was listed among the 50 Top Digital Power Players by The Hollywood Reporter.
