TERRY_THE_TOMBOY_GALLERYInternet star Lia Marie Johnson, whose beloved character Terry the Tomboy on AwesomenessTV helped to skyrocket her to fame, will be featured in her  first-ever TV movie as the title role on Nickelodeon premiering Saturday, June 21, at 8p.m (ET/PT).  Terry the Tomboy centers around a confident, bacon-loving and shower-deficient tomboy whose summer goal is to win the county fair pie-eating contest.  After meeting her new neighbor Brett (Charlie Depew, The Amazing Spiderman), she isn’t so interested in pie anymore and realizes the worst thing has happened — she’s a tomboy who has fallen in love.

Lia Marie Johnson is one of the biggest teen talents on YouTube with nearly 900,000 subscribers and over 47 million views.  She became a YouTube star by creating fun characters and crafting hilarious sketch comedy bits. In addition to her work with AwesomenessTV, Lia starred in the Emmy-winning web series Kids React, Teens React and YouTubers React.

Terry the Tomboy embraces one of Nickelodeon’s many hilarious characters that has experienced enormous popularity on our air and online,” said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s President of Content Development and Production. “Our audience will soon see a new side to Terry’s offbeat world where she must decide between being true to herself – or changing to obtain acceptance from others.”

In Terry the Tomboy, a visit to the doctor confirms that the worst has happened: Terry is crushing on her new neighbor Brett.  With help from her best friend and not-so-secret admirer, Duncanty (Noland Ammon, AwesomenessTV), Terry attempts to overcome her unfortunate condition. When she realizes girly-girl Brittanica (Audrey Whitby, AwesomenessTV and The Thundermans) is vying for Brett’s attention, Terry needs to make a decision. Will she comb her hair and grow up or be herself and chow down at the county fair?

Fans can log on to for an all-access behind-the-scenes look at Terry the Tomboy including photos from the set, bloopers and exclusive sneak peeks of the movie. In addition, viewers can watch Terry’s special online video “Guide to Watching My Movie!” to prepare for Terry’s hilarious adventure.
