NICKELODEON GREENLIGHTS FOURTH SEASON OF HIT MUSIC COMEDY SERIES "BIG TIME RUSH"

Network Orders 13 Episodes with Production Beginning Q1 2013

NEW YORK -- August 6, 2012 - As music sensation Big Time Rush crosses the U.S. this summer performing to sold-out audiences and arenas, and with their hit single "Windows Down" climbing the charts, Nickelodeon has ordered a fourth season of their self-titled hit comedy series Big Time Rush. Created by Scott Fellows and produced in partnership with Sony Music, the series chronicles the adventures of four best friends living the dream in Los Angeles, balancing their newfound fame, fans, music and girlfriends. Starring Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena and Logan Henderson, Big Time Rush is slated to commence production on 13 episodes early 2013 in Los Angeles.

The band's summer anthem "Windows Down," sparked by their strongest first week sales to date, is trending to be their biggest hit yet at radio, digital sales providers and online, with their music video approaching nearly three million views. "Windows Down" will be Big Time Rush's third consecutive charted single at Pop radio. The "Big Time Summer Tour" has the band entertaining fans in 60 cities, making appearances across the U.S., Canada and South America. Their debut, gold-certified BTR and follow-up album Elevate, both entered the Billboard charts in the top 15 and currently total over 1.25 million albums sold worldwide and 3.5 million singles in the U.S.

"Our viewers continue to love the stories, music and comedic misadventures of Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan. Their authentic friendship and brotherhood connects them to each other and their audience, both on camera and when performing in front of thousands of screaming fans," said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon Group.
