Get to know Brat TV’s newest cast!
Nia Sioux, Nina Lu, Connor Finnerty and more of our all-time favorites are joining forces on screen for “Sunnyside Up,” and we couldn’t be more excited! The coming-soon show brings a fictional story thought-up by Rhyme (from “Chicken Girls“) to life, and follows Lily and her newfound friends as they form an unconventional girl gang on Sunnyside Court. The group attends a wacky new-age high school where all kinds of fantastical, colorful characters come to play — and where the tea never stops flowing.
