From a media release:

DHX Media Ltd. (“DHX” or the “Company”) (TSX: DHX.A, DHX.B), a key player internationally in the creation of content for families and children, has been commissioned by Nickelodeon in the US and YTV in Canada to produce a new, live-action musical-comedy series, entitled Make It Pop. The half-hour sitcom, which is targeted at the tween audience, is currently filming 20 episodes at DHX’s Epitome Studio, in Toronto, Canada. DHX Media will also handle global distribution and brand management for Make It Pop, as well as merchandising and licensing through appointed agency, Copyright Promotions Licensing Group Ltd.

Make It Pop is a comedic, music-infused sitcom about three unique girls who come together to start their own K pop-inspired band. Randomly selected to room together at boarding school, three freshman girls 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 their band, XO-IQ, becomes a school-wide sensation and they 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.
