TCA Press Tour: 'iCarly' meets 'Victorious'? Nickelodeon says it will happen

Victorious_3 Get ready for the tween mother lode.

Dan Schneider, creator of Nickelodeon's hit comedy "iCarly" and the upcoming performing arts high school series "Victorious," said a crossover event is in the offing.

"Both casts are very excited about that possibility, so now it's up to me to come up with something good," he said.

The last time Miranda Cosgrove, who plays Carly, and "Victorious" star Victoria Justice went head to head -- in the boxing ring for the "iCarly" special event "iFight Shelby Marx" -- a big 8 million viewers showed up.

"Victorious" centers on a girl who's talent for singing is discovered by chance, landing her a spot among the diverse group of kids who attend Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school. Just don't compare it to "Hannah Montana."

"'Victorious' isn't about being famous," Justice said. "The goal isn't to become the next Britney. The kids who go to the school go because they love to sing" or act or be creative.

"Our show is also angst-free, by the way," said Nickelodeon head of programming Margie Cohen.

In other "iCarly" news, Nickelodeon also announced that Cosgrove will release her first solo album this April.

"Victorious" premieres March 27.

Child's Play: Oh, to be young and famous. It's a common fantasy. But are the kids networks going overboard with it in shows?

Can't wait to see Victorious. I have seen Ariana Grande on Broadway in 13 and knew it would only be a matter of time before we would see her on TV. Good move Nickelodean! Good luck Ariana!

We are so proud of our Full Time Acting Program student, AVAN JOGIA who is one of the stars of Victorious!
