Nico Tortorella to Voice Character on Nickelodeon's New Preschool Series 'Made by Maddie'

Actor Nico Tortorella (Younger) has announced the exciting news in an interview with Teen Vogue that he is set to lend his voice to a character in Nickelodeon's upcoming brand-new animated series Made by Maddie!

"There are some TV projects in the works. There's some theater in the works," Tortorella told Teen Vogue. "I'm on a Nickelodeon cartoon that's coming out next year, which I'm really excited about. I'm on a cartoon right now on Nickelodeon called Sunny Day and Sutton Foster and I did three episodes together. And from that, I booked this other Nickelodeon cartoon called Made by Maddie, which is for Nick Jr, so it's super young and the show's actually all about fashion in New York City. Voiceover work is such a joy and it's something I've always wanted to do."

Although currently unconfirmed, it sounds like Nickelodeon has renamed Fashion Ally to Made by Maddie. Announced at Nickelodeon Upfront 2018, Fashion Ally (working title) follows Ally, a little girl with big ideas and a passion for fashion. Ally is high up in the fashion world, as makes everything around her a bit brighter, bolder and more brilliant, one design fix at a time. Created by Silvergate Media’s Executive Vice President (EVP) of Creative Content, Paula Rosenthal (Nickelodeon's Sunny Day and Peter Rabbit) and commissioned by Nickelodeon, the series will be set in the heart of New York. Each episode will be 23-minutes long.

It was revealed earlier this year that Jamie Lynn Spears, the younger sister of global superstar Britney Spears who starred in hit Nickelodeon series All That and Zoey 101 will also be starring on Fashion Ally.

According to various search results, Made by Maddie is being produced by Silvergate Media. As both shows sound similar, it's more than likely Made by Maddie is the new name for Fashion Ally.

Michael G. Stern is serving as Head Writer on the series, with Hell’s Kitchen-based theatre and television writer Laura Kleinbaum (Bubble Guppies, Butterbean’s Cafe, Rusty Rivets, Zoofari) also working on the series.

According to IP Owner, Viacom has applied to register three patents for the property with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO): for the series, as well as for apparel and toys.

Slightly changing the subject, IP Owner also reveals that Nickelodeon has also registered the trademark for BOOKIDS by nickelodeon! Not much is currently known, however, it sounds like it'll be a mobile application which kids will be able to access electronic book content.

Nickelodeon is also in the midst of registering the trademark for the logo of "Sunny's Salon" for food inspired by Sunny Day!
