Tuning in to TV: ‘iCarly’ actress lands spinoff on Nickelodeon
Question of the Day
The network has tapped Ms. McCurdy and actress Ariana Grande to star in a spinoff tentatively titled “Sam & Cat.” The series will follow the girls’ characters, Sam Puckett from “iCarly” and Cat Valentine from “Victorious,” as they become roommates and start a baby-sitting business.
“I couldn’t be under a better person’s wing, so I’m really happy about that decision,” Ms. McCurdy said in a recent interview. “I haven’t seen a script … so I’m dying for information.”
Ms. McCurdy describes taping the series finale of “iCarly” as emotional.
“The last day of shooting was really sad,” she said. “There was a lot of crying and there were a lot of hugs going around. None of us wanted to say goodbye really.”
Besides acting, Ms. McCurdy loves singing. She recorded a self-titled album with Capitol Records Nashville, but is no longer under contract with that label.
“I knew that I was starting this show and I needed to be focused on that,” she said. “I didn’t want any one thing to get too muddied with the others. Hopefully a different label will like to sign me.”
Who would be her ideal guest star?
“Andrew Garfield. I’m gonna marry him,” she said with a laugh. “In my dreams maybe.”
It looks like the three Jonas brothers may all have TV shows on different networks.
