Kids' will have a chance to see all their favorite Nickelodeon stars together for the first time in the original TV movie, Swindle. Jennette McCurdy (iCarly), Noah Crawford (How to Rock, You Gotta See This) and Noah Munck (iCarly) will team up with Ariana Grande (Victorious), Chris O’Neal (How to Rock, You Gotta See This) and Ciara Bravo (Big Time Rush) in this original comedy caper.
Based on a popular children’s book by Gordon Korman, production is slated for October 2012 in Vancouver, Canada. In Swindle, when an evil collector cons Griffin (Crawford) out of a million dollar baseball card that could have saved his best friend’s (O’Neal) home, he unites a ragtag group of his classmates (Grande, McCurdy, Munck and Bravo) to take down the swindler.
It's a valiant adventure that will take them through daring heists, crazy disguises, pie fights and a showdown with a sumo wrestler, but throughout it all, the kids have to bring their skills together as a team to get justice. The movie will begin airing in 2014 on Nickelodeon’s 40+ international channels across Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
Brand-new series for Nick at Nite with Ryan Newman (Zeke and Luther) and Jackson Brundage (One Tree Hill), SEE DAD RUN, premiering Sunday, October 14 at 8 PM. In See Dad Run, starring and executive produced by Scott Baio, David Hobbs (Baio) has spent the last decade playing the perfect father on one of TV’s biggest sitcoms.
But when series ends and his wife (Alanna Ubach, Legally Blonde) resumes her own television career, he finds himself cast in his most challenging role to date: handling the day-to-day needs of three kids who’ve grown accustomed to not having him around.
David soon learns that playing a dad on TV is child’s play compared to the real thing. Rounding out the cast are Ryan Newman (Zeke and Luther) and Bailey Michelle Brown as David’s daughters, Emily and Janie, and Jackson Brundage (One Tree Hill) as David’s son, Joe. Mark Curry (Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper) also stars as David’s friend.

Nickelodeon has decided, unfortunately, not to give How To Rock a second season. I know this news will be very disappointing for many of you. Believe me, it’s disappointing for me, too.
Why isn’t the show coming back? There’s no one simple answer. NIckelodeon is going through a transition right now. You already know that iCarly and Victorious are not coming back. Nickelodeon has many new shows in production and development that they believe will better suit their audience. While I don’t love their decision, I have no choice other than to accept it.
The Nickelodeon executives who’ve worked on the development and production of How to Rock have been incredibly supportive of the show this past year. They’re good people who want nothing more than to make the best shows for their audience I know it wasn’t an easy decision for them, they truly do like the show, and I’m grateful for the time and energy they’ve put in to make How To Rock as good as it is. Or was.
There is good news. We made 26 episodes. You’ve only seen 17 of them. Meaning, quick, do the math, there are NINE new episodes still to come and Nick will be showing all of them. Seasons of British shows are often 6 episodes. So if you think British right now, you still have a season and half of new How To Rocks. Smashing.
Victoria Justice told M exclusively that the show won't be returning for a fourth season: 'We will not be expecting a fourth season, this is the first time I've talked about it. I just found out a couple of days ago that we're not coming back.
It's sad because I've been with Nickelodeon since I was 12 years old, I became a family with my Victorious cast. We spent a lot of time together and bonded for sure, I'll look back on the experience very fondly.
It's a little shocking and a little bittersweet, but at the end of the day it might not be such a bad thing, we all want to do our own thing and continue to grow.' Victoria will be watching Ariana's spinoff: 'I think it will be great! Ariana and Jennette are both so talented and funny and fans are going to love it!'
Nickelodeon announced today that it has greenlit over a dozen new live-action, animation and TV movie projects, featuring top creative talent in front of and behind the camera, iconic characters from its most popular series and an animated talking snake, that will begin rolling out this fall and into 2013.
