NICKELODEON'S DYNAMIC DUO, JENNETTE MCCURDY AND ARIANA GRANDE, STARS IN BRAND-NEW SPIN-OFF, "SAM & CAT," PREMIERING SATURDAY, JUNE 8, AT 8PM (ET/PT)

Santa Monica, Calif. - May 13, 2013 - Nickelodeon's funny gals Jennette McCurdy (iCarly's Sam Puckett) and Ariana Grande (Victorious' Cat Valentine) are back as their iconic characters from iCarly and Victorious in the brand-new, spin-off comedy Sam & Cat, debuting Saturday, June 8, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Sam & Cat follows feisty Sam and flighty Cat as they become best friends and unlikely roommates who start a babysitting service. The series is created by award-winning executive producer Dan Schneider (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101).

"Sam & Cat is the perfect vehicle to showcase the amazing chemistry and comedic talents of Jennette and Ariana," said Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. "Fans will love seeing two of their favorite Nick characters back in action in this wild and hilarious comedy."

In the series premiere, total opposites Sam Puckett and Cat Valentine first meet when a wild predicament lands both girls in the back of a moving garbage truck. After quickly becoming friends and roommates, they find themselves babysitting three younger kids, which give Sam and Cat the idea to start Sam & Cat's Super Rockin' Fun-Time Babysitting Service.

Beginning June 7, new episodes of Sam & Cat are available on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Vdio, PlayStation Store, Samsung Media Hub and Vudu. Viewers can visit Nick.com/SamandCat to access polls, photo galleries, interviews with the cast and video playlists. In addition, Sam & Cat super-fans can log on to the site to relive the girls' funniest moments from iCarly and Victorious. As a bonus, iTunes will discount all seasons of iCarly and Victorious beginning June 3 through June 11.

Best known for her comedic portrayal of Sam Puckett on the mega-hit iCarly, McCurdy recently wrapped production on Nickelodeon's forthcoming original TV movie Swindle. In addition to starring in the Nick original TV movie Best Player, McCurdy has also guest-starred on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Strong Medicine, Law & Order: SVU, Medium and Judging Amy.

Prior to garnering attention as the beloved character Cat Valentine on Victorious, Grande performed on Broadway in the musical 13. Her other acting credits include a feature role in Nickelodeon's original TV movie Swindle and voiceover work on the animated Nick series Winx Club. Grande is also signed to Universal Republic Records, and her 2013 breakout single, "The Way" featuring Mac Miller, scored Grande her first Billboard Top 10 single.
