Co-created by Thomas W. Lynch and multi-faceted entertainer Nick Cannon, Make It Pop features original songs and performances with a modern pop twist and an EDM beat from the show's emerging, real-life group, XO-IQ.

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, relationship and crushes.
Make It Pop is co-created by Thomas W. Lynch (The Secret World of Alex Mack, South of Nowhere) and Nick Cannon (Nickelodeon HALO Awards) and produced by DHX Media. Lynch and Cannon will serve as executive producers together with DHX Media's Steven DeNure and Anne Loi.
