Viacom’s Paramount Network International on Wednesday unveiled Mean Girls: The Movie and More, its first-ever live experiential event, which will take place in London in June.

The offering tied to the high-school comedy, which starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, among others, means that the channel will join Viacom’s other flagship international network brands in breaking into the live events business, which management has focused on as part of its push into new businesses and revenue sources.

Mean Girls is an iconic cult hit that audiences around the world love,” said Jill Offman, executive vp of Paramount Network International. “From its popular Broadway show and video games, to thousands of memes and iconic quotes, we felt like the film should be brought to life for fans in a way only Paramount, and the power of Viacom, could create.”

Mean Girls: The Movie and More will take place June 12-June 16 at Seymour Leisure Centre in London’s Marylebone neighborhood, which will be transformed into Mean Girls’ North Shore High School. Fans will be able to screen the hit Paramount Pictures movie, walk through set recreations, participate in such photo opportunities as Burn Book selfies and prom pictures, have themed food and drinks, as well as get themed swag.

Amy Poehler to appear at Clusterfest 2019

It was announced today that Amy Poehler has been added to the Clusterfest 2019 lineup.

News of Poehler, Brennan and Clusterfest veteran Armisen joining in on the fun follow the first wave of announcements for the festival that included comics John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt as well as musical group the Roots.
