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

Nickelodeon has announced that it’s picking up 3 more daily scripted series for the upcoming TV season. These new live-action shows include: “Make It Pop,” a comedic, music-infused series about 3 girls who come together to start their own K-Pop-inspired band.

Nick Cannon, via his Ncredible Entertainment production shingle, is throwing his weight behind the new series, which Nickelodeon has ordered 20 episodes of. 

Official synopsis: “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.”

K Pop stands for “Korean Pop” – a musical genre that originated in South Korea, and whose roots can be traced back decades. 

Today, think South Korean singer-songwriter and record producer Psy’s global hit “Gangnam Style.”

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.
