Lawrence teen-ager Alyssa Buecker will appear on the Nickelodeon TV channel Friday to show her short movie, "Figure It Out, Guinea Pig Style."

The movie, which spoofs the Nickelodeon game show "Figure It Out," will be shown at 4 p.m. Alyssa taped the show last summer at Universal Studios in Florida.

In addition, a film crew on Saturday came to Lawrence to film a "Behind-the-Scenes" segment featuring Alyssa that will air on the HBO Family Channel next spring along with her film "Carrot Wars."

She also is currently on "Pet Project," a show airing on the Life network in Canada that will be broadcast next season on the Animal Planet network. Articles about Alyssa will appear in the January issue of National Geographic World and the March-April issue of Pets: Part of the Family. She was the subject of a story in the October-November issue of Girls' Life magazine.

Finally, a syndicated show hosted by Gary Burghoff (Radar on "M*A*S*H") will feature Alyssa in a segment next spring.
