Plus, the network is also planning a spin-off for ‘iCarly’ fan-favorite character Gibby! Will you watch these new series?

Two of Nickelodeon’s biggest stars are colliding! iCarly‘s Jennette McCurdy and Victorious‘ Ariana Grande are co-starring in a pilot for a new Nick show which could very well become the network’s next phenomenon. And here’s the best part: They’ll be playing the characters you already know and love!

Entertainment Weekly reports that the new series, titled Cat & Sam, finds Ariana’s Cat and Jennette’s Sam becoming roommates and starting a babysitting business. (I know that sounds ridiculous, but this is Nickelodeon we’re talking about. It’s not supposed to make sense.)

The pilot is coming from iCarly creator and executive producer Dan Schneider, who is also working on a spin-off for iCarly‘s oft-shirtless Gibby (Noah Munck), approriately titled Gibby! That new series follows Gibby as he (somehow) becomes a mentor for “four off-beat middle school students.”

Do these shows sound like good ideas to you? Drop me a comment with your immediate reaction to both (even if it’s just “WTF?”) below!
