NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Preschoolers will be smiling and styling with Sunny and her friends in Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated series, Sunny Day, premiering Monday, Aug. 21, at 10 a.m. (ET/PT). The series (40 episodes) centers on Sunny, a 10-year-old master hairstylist and entrepreneur who uses creative problem-solving to tackle any dilemma that arises in her seaside town of Friendly Falls. The characters in the series celebrate individuality and self-expression, while the show's social-emotional curriculum highlights leadership, innovative thinking and teamwork. Sunny Day is developed and produced by Silvergate Media (Peter Rabbit), and airs regularly weekdays at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
Sunny (Lilla Crawford) is a confident and creative natural leader who runs her own hair salon in the town of Friendly Falls. When adventure calls, Sunny sets out to save the day with her can-do attitude, salon-on-the-go Glam Van, best friends and colleagues, Rox (Elan Luz Rivera) and Blair (Taylor Louderman), and her dog Doodle (Rob Morrison). Each episode of Sunny Day features a unique digital extension on Nickjr.com and the Nick Jr. App where kids and their parents can watch fun, live-action hairstyle tutorials that are tied directly to the hairstyles featured in each episode and narrated by Sunny.
In Sunny Day’s season premiere, “Stick With Me,” Rox and Blair accidentally get stuck together with sticky hairspray, and it’s up to Sunny to help them work together to get unstuck and save the day.
The first season of Sunny Day will feature celebrity guest stars including: Ashley Parker Angel (O-Town), Lance Bass (NSYNC), Kether Donohue (Grease Live, Pitch Perfect movies), Sutton Foster (Younger, Anything Goes), Renee Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lack), Adam Jacobs (Aladdin), Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos, Entourage) and Shanice Williams (The Wiz Live!).
