‘Rags’ Premieres Tonight: This Isn’t Your Ordinary Cinderella Story!

It’s definitely not your ordinary Cinderella story: Nickelodeon original TV movie Rags premieres tonight on the network, and while it’s based on the Cinderella tale, the tables have been turned! The modern-day fairy tale tells the story of Charlie Prince, an orphan living with his unloving stepfather and spoiled stepbrothers, whose dream is to be a singer. While he is talented and can write music, he just can’t seem to catch a break.

Then there’s Kadee Worth, the daughter of music mogul and an international pop phenomenon. While everyone knows her as a glamorous superstar, she is secretly frustrated with being told what to sing and what to wear. Kadee wants the world to hear and see her true talent. Despite every obstacle that gets thrown in their way, once Charlie and Kadee find one another, they each finally get what they have been looking for – a voice, a stage, an audience and each other.

True Jackson VP‘s Keke Palmer stars as Kadee Worth and How to Rock‘s Max Schneider stars as Charlie Prince. Executive produced by Nick Cannon, Rags also stars Avan Jogia, Drake Bell and Isaiah Mustafa. Original music was produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins.

Rags premieres tonight, May 28th at 8PM only on Nickelodeon.
