Nickelodeon is launching a brand-new, 40-episode animated series, Sunny Day, on Monday, August 21 at 10 a.m. ET/PT. The brightly colored and bubbly show from Silvergate Media promises to have preschoolers “smiling and styling” along with 10-year-old hairstyling maven Sunny, who uses creative problem-solving skills to tackle any dilemma that arises in her seaside town. Sunny Day’s characters celebrate individuality and self-expression, while the show highlights leadership, innovative thinking and teamwork.
Sunny (voiced by 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). In the series premiere, “Stick with Me,” Rox and Blair accidentally get stuck together with sticky hairspray, and Sunny must help them work together to get unstuck.
Season one celebrity guest stars include 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 (Broadway’s Aladdin), Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos, Entourage) and Shanice Williams (The Wiz Live!).
Ahead of the linear premiere, full episodes and short-form content will arrive on NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App, along with a makeover game “Smiling and Styling with Sunny!” launching Aug. 4. Plus, each episode of Sunny Day features a unique an online/in-app extension where kids and their parents can watch fun, live-action hairstyle tutorials that are tied directly to the looks featured in each episode, narrated by Sunny.
