Sam & Cat – Fun News!!!

“Laverne & Shirley” Stars Reuniting on “Sam & Cat” 

Posted on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 – CBS News

LOS ANGELES — The leading ladies of "Laverne & Shirley" are reuniting.

Classic TV comedy legends Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams (Laverne & Shirley) will act together again for the first time in over 30 years with their upcoming guest appearance on Nickelodeon’s newest hit sitcom.

Marshall and Williams will guest star with Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande on Sam & Cat.

In the episode, teen girl roommates Sam Puckett and Cat Valentine are ordered to rename their babysitting business because it’s too similar to “Salmon Cat,” a fictional TV show from the 1970's. Sam and Cat must then locate the show’s two original creators (played by Marshall and Williams) and resolve their three decade-long feud.

The classic TV actresses starred as 1950's pals and roommates Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, workers in a Milwaukee brewery. The mega-popular sitcom aired from 1976 to 1983 on ABC, often ranking as the #1 television show in America.

Nickelodeon says Marshall and Williams will start filming on Wednesday. 

Sam & Cat creator Dan Schneider says it was an honor to write for what he called TV's "funniest female roommates" ever. Schneider has been the main creative force behind other popular tween/family comedies including iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, and Zoey 101.  

Sam & Cat, currently Nickelodeon’s number-one live-action series, drew over 4.2 million viewers with its series premiere making it the network’s biggest live-action debut in three years. The series airs regularly Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
