Nickelodeon Unites 'iCarly' & 'Victorious' in 'iParty With Victorious' 6/10
Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, will unite the casts of mega-hit iCarly and Victorious for an epic primetime event, "iParty with Victorious," an original TV movie airing Friday, June 10. The TV movie spearheads a new season of more than 100 new episodes of the network's live-action hit series, including iCarly, Victorious, Big Time Rush, True Jackson, VP and the daily telenovela-style series House of Anubis, among others. The season also will feature the launch of two new Nickelodeon live-action series, Supah Ninjas and Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures.
"What better way to celebrate summer than a movie mash-up with two of the biggest teen stars, Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice, plus the casts of iCarly and Victorious?" said Marjorie Cohn, President, Development and Original Programming, Nickelodeon and MTV Networks Kids and Family Group. "The special TV event will deliver big comedy, as will the new episodes of iCarly, Victorious, Big Time Rush and House of Anubis, and our two newest series, Supah Ninjas and Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures."
"iParty with Victorious" brings the casts of Nick's hit series iCarly and Victorious together for the first time ever. One cheating boyfriend, plus two scorned girlfriends, equals a night to remember as Carly and Tori plot sweet revenge while the rest of the iCarly and Hollywood Arts gang compete in a lyrical battle royale. Culminating in an ensemble performance of the theme song mash-up, "Leave It All to Shine," the movie also guest stars Nickelodeon alumnus Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live, All That, Kenan & Kel) as himself.
In "iParty with Victorious," Carly is dating a boy named Steven who divides his time between his divorced parents who live in Seattle and Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Tori is also spending time with her new boyfriend who, unbeknownst to her, is the very same boy Carly is seeing! Elsewhere at Hollywood Arts, Andre is psyched because Kenan Thompson has offered to let him throw a small party in his awesome new house but the party spirals out of control when Rex sends a mass tweet. Back in Seattle, Carly suspects that Steven is cheating on her after seeing a photo of him and Tori together and plans a trip to Los Angeles to catch him in the act. After convincing Tori that Steven is cheating on both of them, Carly and Tori come together to plot their revenge at the party. Amidst all the scheming, Rex challenges the partygoers to a lyrical rap battle.
In 2010, iCarly was Nickelodeon's number-one show among K6-11, T9-14 and K2-11. Last year, more than 28 million total viewers tuned in to watch the hit series each week, including 10.2 million adults.
