NICKELODEON'S "SAM & CAT" UNITES ICONIC COMEDY DUO PENNY MARSHALL AND CINDY WILLIAMS IN FIRST APPEARANCE ON SCRIPTED SERIES IN OVER 30 YEARS

Santa Monica, Calif. - June 26, 2013 - Beloved comedy duo Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams (Laverne & Shirley) will reunite on screen in a scripted series for the first time in over 30 years with their upcoming guest appearance on Nickelodeon's buddy sitcom Sam & Cat. Marshall and Williams will appear alongside Sam & Cat's funny gals Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande in "#SalmonCat," shooting this week in Los Angeles. In the episode, Sam and Cat are ordered to rename their babysitting business because it's too similar to "Salmon Cat," a TV show from the '70s. Sam and Cat must track down the show's two original creators (played by Marshall and Williams) and resolve their three decade-long feud.

Sam & Cat, currently Nickelodeon's number-one live-action series, drew over 4.2 million viewers with its series premiere making it the network's biggest live-action debut in three years. Viewers can visit Nick.com/SamandCat to access polls, photo galleries, interviews with the cast and video playlists. The series airs regularly Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).

In Sam & Cat, McCurdy (iCarly's Sam Puckett) and Grande (Victorious' Cat Valentine) are back as their respective iconic characters from iCarly and Victorious in this new spin-off comedy. Sam & Cat follows feisty Sam and flighty Cat as they become best friends and unlikely roommates who start a babysitting service. The series is created by award-winning executive producer Dan Schneider (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101).
