Nickelodeon is planning a sneak peek this week as part of its rollout plans for its new scripted series “Make It Pop.”
The official premiere is Monday, April 6, at 7 p.m. ET/PT, with a sneak peek set for Thursday, March 26, at 7 p.m.
The sneak peek will play again Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m. The show’s regular time slot will be weekdays at 7 p.m.
The program will also be available on Nick.com and the Nick App the day following its premiere on the linear channel.
The show is co-created by Thomas W. Lynch and Nick Cannon, and features original songs and performances with a modern pop twist and an EDM beat from the program’s real-life group XO-IQ.
“Three unique girls — an aspiring pop diva, a fashionista and a bookworm — come together at school to form their own K-pop-inspired band in Nickelodeon’s newest live-action, daily scripted series, ‘Make It Pop,'” the network says in its announcement.
The announcement adds: “Continuing Nickelodeon’s success with the daily, serialized format of hit shows like ‘Every Witch Way’ and ‘House of Anubis,’ ‘Make It Pop’ is a new half-hour comedy where diva Sun Hi (Megan Lee), fashionista Jodi (Louriza Tronco) and bookworm Corki (Erika Tham) must learn to live together in perfect harmony after they are randomly selected to room together at boarding school. With the help of fellow classmate and aspiring DJ, Caleb (Dale Whibley), the girls grow from roommates to bandmates as their group, XO-IQ, becomes a school-wide sensation and they compete for a place in the upcoming school musical, all while balancing music, grades, relationships and crushes.”
