About iCarly (The Television Show)
A show within a show, iCarly follows Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove) and her best friends, Sam (Jennette McCurdy), Freddie (Nathan Kress) and Gibby (Noah Munck), as they create a webcast for and about kids their age while grappling with everyday tween problems and adventures. Carly lives with her older brother and guardian Spencer (Jerry Trainor) and produces her web show from a makeshift studio in the loft upstairs. iCarly is TV’s only scripted series ever to let fans contribute by uploading their original videos to www.iCarly.com – with the hope that their sketch will be incorporated into episodes of the hit show.
