The wait is now over! Nickelodeon has set the date for the new buddy comedy starring That Girl Lay Lay.
That Girl Lay Lay will premiere on Thursday, September 23 at 7:30 pm ET/PT. The new series will follow Lay Lay, an avatar from a personal affirmation app that magically comes to life, and her best friend Sadie, portrayed by Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, as they navigate life as teenagers and discover who they truly are.
According to a recent press release, in the premier episode, Sadie wishes upon a star that her hype-girl avatar, Lay Lay, were real, causing Lay Lay to magically come to life. Now that she is in the real world with Sadie, Lay Lay decides that she wants a teenage experience herself and enrolls in the local school. Using her innate charm, Lay Lay convinces Sadie that she needs to come out of her shell and the best way for her to stand out is to run for student council.
In addition to Alaya “That Girl Lay Lay” High and Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, That Girl Lay Lay will also star Peyton Perrine III as Sadie’s brother, Marky; Tiffany Daniels as Sadie’s mom, Trish; Thomas Hobson as Sadie’s dad, Bryce; and Caleb Brown as Lay Lay and Sadie’s classmate, Jeremy.
If you remember, High inked an extremely lucrative deal with Nickelodeon back in June 2020 to develop original multiform programming and music initiatives, and build a cross-category consumer products business. This new series marks the first project under that deal.
In addition to the upcoming comedy, That Girl Lay Lay’s deal with Nickelodeon will also include supporting her music career and an exclusive line of consumer products, with merchandising agreements spanning a myriad of categories.
Make sure to tune-in on September 23 at 7:30 pm ET/PT. We cannot wait to start this amazing new journey with That Girl Lay Lay!
