Dylan, a 10-year-old rapper, has been regularly featured as an interviewer on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. Perry appeared on Wednesday’s episode of DeGeneres’ daytime talk show with a surprise.

Perry revealed he is developing a Nickelodeon series and Dylan will serve as the star. The news came as a shock to Dylan, who was equal parts amazed and in disbelief.

“I’m excited to work with the team at Nickelodeon and find creative ways to reach new audiences,” Perry later said in a statement published by Just Jared. “I love creating comedy television and can’t wait to work with the talented Young Dylan.”
