Angie Stone, Bieber Join Nick Cannon For TeenNick Premieres
TeenNick Chairman Nick Cannon has enlisted some of music’s top acts including Angie Stone, Justin Bieber and Kristinia DeBarge for the premiere of two films this month.
Presenting two back-to-back movie premieres featuring the multi-talented entertainer, Cannon makes his directorial debut with School Gyrls, a new hour-long original musical comedy, which he also penned, premiering at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) and stars in the network’s premiere of the popular theatrical film Drumline, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
“School Gyrls introduces the multi-talented Mandy Rain, Jacque and Monica to the teen audience,” said Nick Cannon. “The girls are triple threats — each with their own amazing individual personalities – and Nickelodeon viewers will get an inside look at their road to fame in this movie.”
School Gyrls centers on the eponymous, real-life, multi-talented teen pop group discovered by Cannon consisting of 15-year old Mandy Rain; 15-year-old Jacquelyn Rae Pyles aka Jacque Nimble; and 16-year-old Monica Parales aka Mo Money.
School Gyrls features special appearances from Justin Bieber, Cannon, Kristinia DeBarge, Reverend Run, Soulja Boy, Angie Stone and Pete Wentz. School Gyrls also marks Cannon’s second project for Nickelodeon and comes on the heels of the TeenNick HALO Awards, an hour-long special he created, hosted and executive produced, that recognizes and celebrates real teens who are making a significant difference in the world.
