(After you read all this, PLEASE COMMENT BELOW!)
This month (December) has great stuff coming up...
VICTORIOUS: Monday, December 26th at 7:00pm – It's the premiere of "Blooptorious" – the first every Victorious blooper episode. You need to watch this, trust me. Not only will you see the best bloopers since the very beginning of Victorious, you also get to see what might be the weirdest "talk show" in the history of talk shows. Here's a hint: REX. Here's another hint: CHRISTOPHER CANE (you'll understand soon).
When you see this "talk show" blooper episode of Victorious, some of you will (I hope) love it… and others might think I've lost my mind. Haha. It's weird and, we think, hilarious. I'm really looking forward to hearing what you guys think of it. Let me know! :)
iCARLY: Wednesday, December 28th at 7:00pm – Remember iBloop? That was the first iCarly blooper episode (if you never saw it, you can download it by CLICKING HERE). Well, on Wednesday, December 28th you get to see the next iCarly blooper episode which is titled "iBloop 2: Electric Bloop-a-loo" (not many of the younger viewers will get the title reference, but hopefully a few of you will).
This new blooper episode of iCarly is just as weird as the Victorious blooper episode. The bloopers are hilarious, and the "talk show" format is one of the most insane things I've ever written/produced. For now, let's just say it's a very, very, very different way of doing a blooper episode. I think (hope) you'll love it and laugh your eyebrows off (they'll grow back). If you want see a quick PREVIEW, just CLICK HERE.
iCARLY SPECIAL EVENT! "iStill Pyscho" – on NEW YEAR'S EVE! Yep, for the first time ever, there's all all new iCarly one-hour special on New Year's Eve (starting at 8:00pm). This is the "sequel" to iPsycho, one of the most popular iCarly specials of all time. If you haven't see the original iPsycho, you can download it by CLICKING HERE.
The original iPsycho had one of the best TV fight scenes EVER between Gibby and crazed iCarly fan, Nora Dershlit. Well, in iStill Psycho, the iCarly gang tangles with Nora again.
As much as I loved how the first iPsycho came out, I like this new one even more! The actress who plays Nora is brilliantly funny, and this time we add in a lot of T-Bo and Mrs. Benson, and even Spencer becomes a victim of Nora's wrath.
And yes, "Maurice the chicken" makes a trimphant return in this sequel. Oh… and there's a BIG reference to a first season iCarly episode, iFence. You just might get to see a Benson handle a sword again…. but I don't want to give too much away here. :)
AFTER THE NEW YEAR…
2012 has LOTS of cool stuff coming! The first thing is a new episode of iCarly called "iBalls" (think "eyeballs"). I'm actually in editing right now, working on it. Want some hints about the episode? Okay! Just highlight the area below (between the two rows of blue equal signs) and you'll see some secret info about "iBalls"! SPOILER ALERT...
- Freddie decides he wants to be a CREATIVE member of the iCarly team (not just the tech producer). He wants to perform on the show.
- Spencer hires a personal assistant (which is hilarious).
- Very funny stuff from both Mrs. Benson AND T-Bo!
Early in the year you'll see an episode of Victorious that parodies an iconic movie from the 1980's. I don't know if it's cool for me to tell you which movie it is... but it might be The Breakfast Club. Maybe. Just maybe. Check out this pic, below…
And there's an iCarly special event episode which features an AMAZING GUEST STAR. Again, I don't want to say too much here, but she might… just might be a very cool, influentical woman that just might be married to the President of the United States. This is an iCarly episode that will be seen my many millions of people all over the world, so you probably don't want to miss this one. :)
And soon, on an upcoming episode of Victorious, you'll hear the freakishly talented Leon Thomas perform a song he wrote and produced himself. It's called "Countdown" and it's 1,000,000% AWESOME.
Okay, that should be enough to keep us busy over the holidays and the beginning of January. I'm really looking forward to your feedback on these episodes – I love hearing what makes you guys smile and laugh the most.
As for now, I'm staying VERY BUSY because I'm in production on both iCarly and Victorious at the same time. It's been really interesting so far. I'm spending part of my days in a room with the iCarly writers, coming up with new episodes… and then I spend the other part of my day in a room with the Victorious writers, doing the same.
And soon, I'll be filming them both at the same time. It's going to be a wild and wacky (and BUSY) 2012, but I'm really looking forward to all the action and comedy.
I feel incredibily lucky because I love working on both iCarly and Victorious. I swear, the casts of these shows are made up of the most talented, nicest, coolest people you could ever meet: Matt Bennett ("Robbie"), Miranda Cosgrove ("Carly"), Liz Gillies ("Jade"), Ariana Grande ("Cat"), Avan Jogia ("Beck"), Victoria Justice ("Tori"), Nathan Kress ("Freddie"), Jennette McCurdy ("Sam"), Daniella Monet ("Trina"), Noah Munck ("Gibby"), Leon Thomas ("Andre"), and of course Jerry Trainor ("Spencer").
If you ever happen to check out my YouTube videos, you'll get a little taste of the fun we all have on set, every day.
Finally, a huge THANK YOU to the FANS of both these shows. The enthusiam, support, and loyatly we get from you guys truly motivates us to keep making even funnier episodes. We love making you laugh, so thank you for tuning in and giving us the opportunity to do that.
And before I go, here's a fun little piece of news for you…
In 2012, I might be creating a brand new TV series for you. Yep. After All That… and Kenan & Kel… and The Amanda Show… and Drake & Josh… and What I Like About You… and Zoey 101… and iCarly… and Victorious… (whew!)… I'm thinking the time might be right to start filming a new TV show.
It's funny… I hear lots of rumors about what my next show will be about. I read stuff online, and I even hear rumors spread by people in my world… but none of the rumors are true. I think you'll be very surprised and excited by my next TV series. More on that to come in the weeks ahead...
I think that's all for now. In the meantime, if you'd like, feel free to...
