Italian animation studio and licensor Rainbow (Winx, Regal Academy, Mia and me) has teamed up with German toy manufacturer Simba Dickie Group to develop toys for its first full live-action production, My American Friend (working title), which is a new girls series about fashion and friendship.

United by their love for music and fashion, the two discover secrets that change their lives forever.
