Cousins for Life Plot: What is it about?
Cousins for Life is a story of two twelve-year-old cousins, Ivy (Scarlet Spencer), and Stuart (Dallas Young) who come from a completely different family background but are more than family to each other. When Stuart’s mom is transferred overseas for a mission, his father decides to leave for Portland and join his brother Lewis in the new city. Here, Stuart is introduced to the socially active and confident Ivy. While living under the same roof, they learn and navigate life challenges as they embark on new adventures. Their bond grows deeper with time, and they become the best of friends partaking in the occasional mischief. Ivy has a younger and curious brother named Leaf who sometimes makes it difficult for them to pursue their activities. They realize that they are unstoppable as a team and their bond helps the rest of their families get along with each other.
“Cousins for Life features new, young talent that our audience can grow with. It’s relatable to kids and families and full of heart with a positive, empowering message,” said Bronwen O’Keefe, executive VP live action, and movies. “What makes this series so unique is the aspirational relationship that unfolds between the cousins, combined with the funny situations that emerge from these opposite personalities living together.” It is shows like these that have helped Nickelodeon quite a stable network for Viacom.
