Nickelodeon Star Brec Bassinger, who portrays Emma in "Haunted Hathaways", has announced the exciting Nick news in a post on her official Instagram profile page, @BrecBassinger, that Nickelodeon will start to film her upcoming brand-new Nickelodeon show "Bella and the Bulldogs", formally titled "Bella and the Bullfrogs", in about six weeks time in July 2014 (approximately Sunday 20th or Monday 21st July 2014)!

To celebrate Nickelodeon starting to film her all-new live-action television series soon, Brec also shared a exclusive photograph of Nickelodeon announcing her brand-new show at Nickelodeon Upfront 2014, which features Brec and two of her cast mates as their respective characters.

"Bella and the Bulldogs", picked up for 12 episodes, follows a perky head cheerleader named Bella (Brec Bassinger, "The Haunted Hathaways") whose life in Texas takes an unexpected twist when she becomes the new quarterback for her school team, the Bullfrogs. Bella is joined by "The Troy" (Coy Stewart, "Are We There Yet?"), the Bullfrogs' dethroned quarterback along with his pint-sized sidekick, Newt (Buddy Handleson, "Wendell & Vinnie"). Rounding out the cast are Lilimar Hernandez as Sophie, Bella's cheerleader best friend: Jackie Radinsky as true southern cowboy, Sawyer; Haley Tju as Pepper; Paul Lacovara as a Referee; Rio Mangini ("See Dad Run") as Ace McFumbles; Evan Roe ("Sam & Cat") as Blake; and Sully Zack as Player #2. The series is written by Gabriel Garza and Jonathan Butler ("The Haunted Hathaways", "Fanboy & Chum Chum"), who were discovered through Nickelodeon's Writing Program. Jeff Bushell will serve as Executive Producer.

Brec Bassinger also recently shared another great photo on her official Instagram page featuring herself and some of her "Bella and the Bulldogs" co-stars, Buddy Handleson, Coy Stewart and Jackie Radinsky, on the school corridor/hallway studio set of their brand-new Nick show reading their scripts!
