“My original idea was that she play a ‘normal’ girl who, in a twist of fate, gets cast to star in her favorite TV show,” designer Dan Schneider exposed on his blog site in 2009. “I even wrote the script. I called it Starstruck. The pilot I wrote (and turned in to Nickelodeon) was about Carly, a regular girl who gets cast to star in her favorite TV show. “

“I decided that it would be MUCH COOLER for Carly to create HER OWN show,” he discussed, “a show she could run herself, her own way, and do whatever she wanted to do – A WEB SHOW.”
