"Sanjay and Craig" (TV show) is an animated series on Nickelodeon about two best friends, one of whom happens to be a talking snake, seeking maximum awesomeness. This series follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, "30 Rock") and Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, "Nerdist," "Back at the Barnyard"). Together, they embark on epic kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet.

Sanjay and Craig's relationship is an alliance of equals, with Sanjay relying on his best buddy to aid his misadventures through their suburban neighborhood. From perfecting the ultimate bike skid, tightroping across a pool of garbage on a dare or Craig manipulating a contest to win his best buddy one hundred dogs, their routine hijinks often cross into the land of the fantastical and the absurd. Only Sanjay and his closest friends can hear Craig's warped words of wisdom. The only thing that stands in their way is their unhinged, snake-phobic neighbor, Mr. Noodman, who's always on the verge of figuring out that Craig can talk.

During the series premiere, Sanjay and Craig infiltrate the hospital to see the world's first butt transplant in "Brett Venom MD." Then in "Laugh Quake," the two go on a quest to find the ultimate laugh.

The series features the voice talents of Pancholy and Hardwick in the lead roles with additional cast members that include Linda Cardellini ("Mad Men," "Freaks and Geeks") as Megan; Matt Jones ("Breaking Bad)" as Hector; Tony Hale ("Veep," "Arrested Development") as Mr. Noodman; Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory") as Vijay; Grey DeLisle ("The Fairly OddParents") as Darlene and Sandy Dickson; and Remington Tufflips as himself.

Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios, "Sanjay and Craig" is created and co-executive produced by Jay Howell, Jim Dirschberger and Andreas Trolf. These first-time creators were teamed with award-winning writers and producers Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi ("The Adventures of Pete & Pete," "Alvin and the Chipmunks").
