Nickeldeon’s Nick Jr. has a new upcoming series and a Black family is at the forefront.
The series, titled Made by Maddie (fka Fashion Ally) will be on Sept 13. The series follows 8-year-old Maddie in New York City, “as she uses her imagination and design ingenuity to turn every problem into a positive with the perfect fashion fix.”
Here’s the official description: Made by Maddie centers on Maddie (Alyssa Cheatham), a quick-thinking little girl with a big personality and a huge heart, who has a passion for fashion. Maddie finds design inspiration around every corner and her big ideas couldn’t become a reality without the love and support of her aspirational and talented fashion designer mom, Dee (Patina Miller), and her super cool and upbeat musician dad, Rashad (James Monroe Iglehart), along with the assistance of friends and neighbors, including kind, animal-loving best friend, Jada (Sophia Torres), and the twins—rule-following Harper (Amanda Dressel) and fearless Hudson (Ames McNamara)—who are always up for adventure. Maddie’s creative thinking and dazzling designs are a reflection of the bustling, colorful city of New York and its residents. Maddie confidently embraces her own unique style, celebrates individuality, treats everyone with kindness, and encourages others to take risks and be themselves.
The series will also feature guest appearances from Karamo Brown, Rhyon Nicole Brown, Danny Burstein, David Burtka, Monét X Change, Griffin Robert Faulkner, Nina Garcia, Joy Lynn Jacobs, Claudia Morcate-Martin, Wanya Morris, Christine Pedi, Christiani Pitts, Al Roker, D’Angelo Russell, Horatio Sanz and Nico Tortorella.
Episodes will air every Sunday on the network. NickJr.com, the Nick Jr. App and Nick Jr. On-Demand will all feature short-form content and full-length episodes.
