When we hung out with Brec Bassinger for the first time in person about a month ago, it was clear that she was born to be a star! And it's not just because she's a totally creative Instagram account that we're obsessed with — she's got a whole lot of talent! Brec is the star of Nickelodeon's new television series Bella and the Bulldogs, so remember her name because you're going to be hearing it a lot. <3
Brec's new show premieres in just a few days — this Saturday, January 17th — so we're here to clue you in on everything you need to know about the show, its characters, and cast!
Bella and the Bulldogs is Nick's new live action series about Bella Dawson, a middle school cheerleader who dreams about playing football and who very quickly goes from the sidelines to the football team's starting line up. Suddenly, Bella's half-cheerleader, half-star-quarterback! Now Bella not only has to prove that she's good enough to start, but that she's also cool enough to hang with the almost-all-boys' football team. Can Bella hang with her new fball teammates Troy, Sawyer, and Newt, while still maintaining her friendships with Pepper and Sophie, her fellow cheerleaders?

The idea for Bella and the Bulldogs came from several news stories about girls playing "traditional boy sports" that made national headlines.
