Jennette McCurdy, the iCarly star who reprised her role on Sam & Cat with Ariana Grande, will star in a new drama.
Jennette McCurdy, the star of Sam & Cat, is taking on an adult role in her TV return.
But not too adult, or her character would already be dead.According to Deadline, McCurdy will star in the Canadian thriller series “Between.” The series tells the story of a town overtaken by a “mysterious illness” that kills everyone over the age of 21.
The town and a 10 mile radius around it are quarantined and the youngsters have to fend for themselves.
The Jennette McCurdy, iCarly star “naked” selfies, which weren’t naked at all, seem to have done the trick as the perennial Nickelodeon favorite has just signed up to star in a Canadian survivalist drama for Netflix called “Between.” “Between” is Netflix’s first collaboration with a Canadian network and is also partnering with Shomi is a Canadian-based streaming service, which is may turn out to be a rival to Netflix in the future.
Shomi will be launched by City parent Rogers Media and Shaw Communications next month.
“Between” season 1 will feature six, one-hour episodes.
The show will premiere on City and shomi in Canada and on Netflix outside of Canada where the service is available. Jennette McCruday took to Twitter to leak “So excited to announce that I’ll be starring in the new thriller series #BETWEEN coming to Netflix, City, and shomi in 2015!”Nataline Rodrigues, Director of Original Programming, Rogers said “We know that Canadians crave daring and distinctive original programs, and ‘Between’ offers just that.
Showcasing Michael McGowan’s cinematic vision on the small screen, this compelling new series, in partnership with Netflix and shomi, delivers on our promise to offer viewers world-class entertainment.” This is Jennette McCurdy’s first rile since the cancellation of Nickelodeon’s ‘Sam & Cat.’ Jennette McCurdy has been acting on the web series “What’s Next For Sarah?” which took a satirical look at McCurdy, Ariana Grande and other young actresses’ lives in between gigs.Jennette McCurdy is taking time out from her feud with Ariana Grande, following the cancellation of Sam & Cat.
Jennette followed her Nickelodeon stint with the web-series What’s Next for Sarah.
McCurdy said I wanted What’s Next for Sarah to be a light-hearted call-out to some of the more absurd experiences I’ve faced growing up in the entertainment industry.
My goal was to exaggerate some of the more classic Hollywood archetypes — the phony reporter, the insincere agent, the duplicitous casting director — and heighten them to a surreal extent that we can all laugh at.
We all have those moments where we feel like the world is entirely crazy, and we’re the only sane person.”
