Over the past week or so, One Direction have managed to pack Rockefeller Plaza with hundreds of screaming girls, sell enough records to make them the first U.K. group in history to top the Billboard 200 chart with a debut album and snag a musical guest spot on Saturday Night Live in April. And now the British quintet have signed on to star in their own show on Nickelodeon.
“The rumors are true, our live-action slate does include a development project for @onedirection. Welcome to the family!” Nickelodeon tweeted after the network put on its upfront presentation in New York City on March 14.
There have been no other details on what the TV show’s storyline or how the band members will be portrayed. And according to other sources, some members of the band are a bit sketch about the project altogether. Either way with Nickelodeon successes like Victorious and Big Time Rush, the potential for a One Direction series could potentially be another success for the network.
And if you can’t get enough of them, One Direction will be performing on this year’s Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards and appearing in a future iCarly episode.
