It’s true – One Direction will soon have their own series on Nickelodeon! Rumors have been flying for weeks now that the boy banders were being considered for their own show, and now the network has confirmed it, tweeting, “The rumors are true, our live-action slate does include a development project for @onedirection. Welcome to the family!”
No word yet on what type of show Nickelodeon has in store for bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, and Harry Styles – but don’t think it will matter to 1D fans – the important thing is the boys will be coming to your TV screens every week!
The British band first impressed Nick executives when they did a guest stint on the popular iCarly, and after that industry sources were speculating that the heartthrobs would soon be offered their own show. “Simon [Cowell] has vowed to launch them on the U.S. version of the X Factor, while Nickelodeon are in talks to give them their own show,” said an industry source last month, adding that producers and directors were impressed with the acting abilities of the boys.
