Here’s the official announcement:
NICKELODEON GREENLIGHTS SECOND SEASON OF DAILY SCRIPTED MUSICAL COMEDY SERIES, “MAKE IT POP”
Santa Monica, Calif., – May 4, 2015 – Nickelodeon today announced it has renewed its hit live-action, music-infused daily strip, Make It Pop, for a second season with 20 episodes. Demonstrating Nick’s commitment to innovative formats and storytelling, since launch, Make It Pop is Nick’s #1 show with K6-11 and G6-11. The series ranks as the most-watched long-form content on Nick.com and on the Nick App. The announcement was made by Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s President of Content Development and Production. Make It Pop season one will debut on Nickelodeon’s international channels beginning this summer.
Filled with new songs, lots of laughs and heart, season two sees Sun Hi, Corki, Jodi and Caleb continue their coming-of-age journey. After their triumph with the school musical, the band XO-IQ is called upon to represent Mackendrick Prep at a high stakes battle of bands and a new musical rival emerges.
“Once again, Nick has successfully tapped into a cultural force and created a meaningful, daily connection by bridging our audience with great, relatable storytelling and a shared love of music,” said Hicks.
Make It Pop is a half-hour comedic, music-infused daily scripted series that follows three unique girls – social-media maven Sun Hi (Megan Lee), bookish Corki (Erika Tham), and fashion-forward Jodi (Louriza Tronco) – who come together with DJ hopeful Caleb (Dale Whibley) over their love of music to form their own K-pop inspired band. Each episode features original songs and performances with a K-pop twist and an EDM beat from the show’s band, XO-IQ.
Make It Pop is co-created by Thomas W. Lynch and Nick Cannon and produced by DHX Media. Lynch and Cannon will serve as executive producers together with DHX Media’s Steven DeNure and Anne Loi. The musical direction of the series is being led by Bill Silva Entertainment, with music supervision by Peter Coquillard and Pilar McCurry of Silva Music Publishing. XO-IQ is managed by Bill Silva Management. Doug Cohn is executive in charge of music for Nickelodeon.
