Nickelodeon is debuting a “K-Pop-inspired” TV Series called “Make it Pop” 

Make It Pop (20 episodes) is a comedic, music-infused daily strip about three unique girls who come together to start their own K-Pop-inspired band. 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. 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.

The series stars Filipina actress Louriza Tronco as Jodi, Korean actress Megan Lee as Sun Hi and Erika Tham (couldn’t find anything about her ethnicity) as Corki and is expected to premiere during Nickelodeon’s 2015-2016 season.
