Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande will star as their respective ''iCarly'' and ''Victorious'' characters Sam Puckett and Cat Valentine as girls who become roommates and run a babysitting business, in the pilot tentatively titled "Sam & Cat".
There is already a topic about this in the ''iCarly'' board, but thought I would it here as well, since it is both an ''iCarly'' and a 'Victorious'' spinoff.
I have a lot of mixed feelings about this pilot which let's face it Nickelodeon will definitely green-light to series. I was really looking forward seeing Jennette playing a character that was not Sam Puckett, but oh well. Also, if Cat remains exactly the same on this pilot/show as she is now on ''Victorious'', I am going to get tired of this show real fast. This show is only to work for me if Cat is back to the way she was in the early season 1 episodes of ''Victorious''. I also feel like this is a desperate move by Nickelodeon to keep the ''iCarly'' franchise alive in some form (Noah Munck is also getting his own spinoff pilot, too as ''iCarly'''s Gibby). With Ariana Grande being the second most popular actor on ''Victorious'' (second only to Victoria Justice, of course) and Dan Schneider having yet to produce a flop for the network, this totally can't fail, right. Nonetheless I'll check it out when it premieres.
