Season one of “That Girl Lay Lay” shattered records this Fall with premieres delivering double digit gains on Thursday nights and consistent #1 rankings in the time slot across all TV among K6-11.
The logline: “That Girl Lay Lay” follows Lay Lay, a virtual hype avatar who magically comes to life after her best friend Sadie wishes on a star.

Season two of “That Girl Lay Lay” will begin production early this year in Los Angeles with a premiere slated for this summer on Nickelodeon.
