Get ready for the tween mother lode.

Dan Schneider, creator of Nickelodeon’s hit comedy ‘iCarly’ and the upcoming performing arts high school series ‘Victorious,’ said a crossover event is in the offing.

‘Both casts are very excited about that possibility, so now it’s up to me to come up with something good,’ he said.


The last time Miranda Cosgrove, who plays Carly, and ‘Victorious’ star Victoria Justice went head to head -- in the boxing ring for the ‘iCarly’ special event ‘iFight Shelby Marx’ -- a big 8 million viewers showed up.

‘Victorious’ centers on a girl who’s talent for singing is discovered by chance, landing her a spot among the diverse group of kids who attend Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school. Just don’t compare it to ‘Hannah Montana.’

‘'Victorious’ isn’t about being famous,’ Justice said. ‘The goal isn’t to become the next Britney. The kids who go to the school go because they love to sing’ or act or be creative.

‘Our show is also angst-free, by the way,’ said Nickelodeon head of programming Margie Cohen.

In other ‘iCarly’ news, Nickelodeon also announced that Cosgrove will release her first solo album this April.

‘Victorious’ premieres March 27.
