New Nickleodeon Show, "iCarly", A Huge Teen Hit

Feb 2, 2008
It didn't take long for Nickleodeon to realize they had a hit on their hands . They received so much positive response they almost immediately increased the number of shows in production. The show's executive Producer is none other than Dan Schneider, the man who brought you Drake & Josh. Nickl originally committed to purchase 13 episodes, but it then raised the number to 20, and ultimately went all the way up to 40! This is a huge commitment for a brand new show. Unfortunately, the writers' strike got in the way and only 26 shows made it to the can (showbiz talk for produced).

iCarly stars Miranda Cosgrove fresh off her role of the mean, nasty, and super-intelligent Megan on "Drake and Josh", another Nickleodeon hit. The cast is rounded out by Jennette McCurdy, who plays Carly's best friend Sam Puckett, Nathan Kress, who plays the lovesick techno geek, Freddie, and Jerry Trainor, who plays Carly's older brother Spencer, a crazy artist.

Carly, Sam and Freddie first began their wWeb show, "iCarly", when Sam, Carly's best friend, took their teacher's head and photoshopped it onto the body of a rhinoceros. The teacher, Ms. Briggs, found out and Carly took the fall because Sam would have been kicked out of school due to her record of troublemaking. As punishment, Ms. Briggs made Carly oversee and videotape the school's talent show auditions all day on a Saturday. Carly decided since the whole thing was Sam's fault, that Sam would have to help her, and poor old love sick Freddie agreed to help tape the auditions to be close to Carly. Most of the auditions were lame, and the trio got bored. It was then that Freddie started taping Carly and Sam making fun of Ms. Briggs without the girls' knowledge. Everything was fine until Freddie accidently download the video of the girls capping on Miss Briggs instead of the auditions to the Web. They realized the mistake, but Freddie couldn't get the video off of the web until the following Monday. By the time he was able to take it down, 23,000 people had seen it, and loved it. People posted saying that they loved the video, and Carly, Sam, and Freddie decided they should do a regular web broadcast and call it iCarly. Their first full live show was a huge success with Carly and Sam stars of their own web show.

We love the cast and concept of iCarly. It is the first show to marry Webcasting to television broadcasting in a strong effort to attract the growing population of "wired" kids today. Kids can watch the show, see a webcast embedded in the show, visit the iCarly Web site that overlaps with the webcast on the show, and then, if they really want to be creative, make their own video to send to iCarly to have a chance to be on TV. iCarly is already a huge hit, and we expect its popularity to grow. Heck, there are already iCarly fan sites up on the web, as well as sites for the main cast members: Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor.
