With seeminglyeverynewrelease, Charli XCX recaptures the Pop Music World Championship and re-molds it in her own futuristic image (John Cena spinner-belt-style, but without getting tiresome).

But now, Charli has her sights set on a new frontier: very popular streaming services that love overpaying for the rights to TV shows from the 90s. I’m With The Band: Nasty Cherry is a new Netflix series, documenting the band that Charli is with, Nasty Cherry.

Charli helped to form Nasty Cherry, signed them to her Vroom Vroom Recordings label, has done some co-writing with them, and is both featured in and served as an Executive Producer for the series. The actual band members are Chloe Chaidez of the band Kitten, Georgia Somary of set designing for movies like The Last Jedi, Deborah Knox-Hewson of drumming for Charli XCX, and Gabbriette Bechtel of being a model.

Based on the trailer, the series’ aim seems to be covering the formation of the band and their attempts to find “success” in the “industry” during a time where you can really only rely on smoke signals and blind luck to get you anywhere: the press interviews, the endless shows, the cats that fart in front of you when you least suspect it. You know, all the trials and tribulations.

To get a better grasp on what to expect — and to understand why we would ever bring up farting cats on this website — watch the trailer for the series down below. I’m With The Band: Nasty Cherry is set to hit Netflix on November 15. Here’s hoping it’s the first-ever pivot to video that deserves to be celebrated.
