A Nickelodeon TV series that you probably never heard of is getting made into a movie. Genie in the House: The Movie just got its financing at the San Sebastian Film Festival. "Genie in the House" ran from 2006-09 on Nickelodeon U.K. and is about a widowed dad and his two teen daughters who find a lamp inside the house they just moved into. The lamp contains a genie in training.

The movie is being funded by German, French and Spanish companies.
