Alaya “That Girl Lay Lay” High is getting her own TV show!
Nickelodeon just announced that the network has given the greenlight to a brand new series starring Lay Lay.
This marks Lay Lay‘s first project under the overall deal she signed with the network back in June 2020.
In That Girl Lay Lay (working title), phone avatar Lay Lay is the perfect hype girl and best friend that anyone could ever want from their personal affirmation app. Struggling to make her mark at school and needing a best friend to talk to, Sadie wishes upon a star that Lay Lay was real and could help teach her how to stand out. When her wish comes true and Lay Lay is magically brought to life, the two friends learn that when they are together, they can accomplish anything.
The series will consist of 13 episodes and is executive produced by Side Hustle‘s John Beck and Ron Hart.
“We’re so excited to have That Girl Lay Lay star in a series that’s just as fierce and funny as she is,” Zack Olin, Senior Vice President, Live Action, said in a statement. “At its heart, the show David A. Arnold created is about staying true to yourself, and with the immensely talented Will Packer producing, we just know that viewers are going to immediately fall in love with this series.”
“That Girl Lay Lay is a multitalented force of nature destined for mega stardom. I’m so excited about what she represents as a talented African-American girl with her own platform to showcase her unique abilities,” producer Will Packer added. “David A. Arnold has crafted the right show at the right time and Nickelodeon is the perfect partner.”
Congratulations Lay Lay!!
