Nickelodeon is looking to expand its business with Victoria Justice, putting the 15-year-old “Zoey 101” co-star in her own series and an original pic.
The series will be created and helmed by noted Nick tween-market hitmaker Dan Scheider (“iCarly,” “Zoey 101,” “Drake & Josh”) and will be set in a day school for the performing arts. Skein will be developed in partnership with Sony BMG Music and feature original music.
Justice will also co-star in the upcoming original Nick pic “Spectacular!,” which is set in the competitive world of show choirs.
Since 2005, Justice has played “Zoey 101’s” Lola Martinez, the title character’s roommate at the fictional Pacific Coast Academy. Other roles have included a guest spot on “Gilmore Girls,” as well as a part in the Hallmark Hall of Fame Christmas special “Silver Bells” opposite Anne Heche and Tate Donovan.
