Nickelodeon picks up new K-pop-inspired series 'Make It Pop'

Musical comedy about three classmates who come together to start their own K-pop band.



What happens when Glee meets K-Pop by way of Nickelodeon? You get the new scripted series Make It Pop, a "comedic music-infused daily strip about three girls who come together to start their own K-Pop-inspired band." The show, produced by Nick Cannon, will feature original songs and performances in every episode.

Nick Cannon Gets Behind New Live-Action Musical Series, 'Make It Pop,' for Upcoming TV Season

Make It Pop stars Louriza Tronco as Jodi, Megan Lee as Sun Hi and Erika Tham as Corki. The show joins two other new scripted daily live action shows on Nickelodeon's line up, Talia's Kitchen and The W.I.T.s Academy. I am one hundred percent positive that I am not in the target demographic for these shows. But it's all good.

UPDATE: Here's a short promo video for the show:




Here are some more details about the show:

Make It Pop (20 episodes) is a comedic, music-infused daily strip about three unique girls who come together to start their own K-Pop-inspired band. Randomly selected to room together at boarding school, bookish Corki, fashion-forward Jodi and social media maven Sun Hi meet and bond over music. With the help of fellow boarding school classmate and DJ hopeful, Caleb, the girls grow from roommates to bandmates as they become a school-wide sensation and compete for a place in the upcoming school musical. The series, which will feature original songs and performances in every episode, is co-created by Thomas W. Lynch and Nick Cannon and produced by DHX Media. Make It Pop is executive produced by Lynch and Cannon, together with Steven DeNure and Anne Loi for DHX Media.

Make It Pop premieres in April on Nickelodeon.
