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 to produce a second season of its hit live-action, tween series, Make It Pop. The 20-episode order will be filmed at DHX’s Epitome Studio, in Toronto, Canada. Make It Pop season one will debut on Nickelodeon’s international channels beginning this summer.
Make It Pop is Nickelodeon’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.
Make It Pop is co-created by Thomas W. Lynch and Nick Cannon and produced by DHX Media. Lynch and Cannon also serve as executive producers with DHX Media’s Steven DeNure and Anne Loi. DHX Media also handles global distribution and brand management for Make It Pop, as well as merchandising and licensing through appointed agency, Copyright Promotions Licensing Group Ltd. (CPLG). Music supervision is by Peter Coquillard and Pilar McCurry of Silva Music Publishing, and the show’s band XO-IQ, is managed by Bill Silva Entertainment.
The show 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.
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.
