SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Nickelodeon says "Wendell & Vinnie," a new U.S. sitcom starring and produced by former "iCarly" cast member Jerry Trainor, will debut next month.
Co-starring Buddy Handleson, Nicole Sullivan and Haley Strode, the scripted, live-action family comedy will premiere Feb. 17. It follows the adventures of a carefree bachelor, who suddenly becomes the legal guardian of his precocious, 12-year-old nephew.
"Jerry's infectious style of wacky comedy made him a favorite with kids and families over the past five years on 'iCarly,' and this new family series from the Emmy Award-winning sitcom veteran Jay Kogen will showcase his incredible comedic talents to an even broader audience," said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon's president of content development and production. "We look forward to the smart humor that develops from this collaboration."
