When executive producer, Dan Schneider was filming his previous show Zoey 101 he came up with the idea for iCarly. With its name with his friend and producer of The Big Bang Theory, Steve Molaro. However he says the title iCarly wasn't the show's original titl
Then I tried iCarly, and I got it. I loved that name for the lead character, so I changed the names of the two lead girls from Sam and Kira to Carly and Sam.
iCarly is also the first show to have the audience send video clips to the official website.
