Michelle Obama to Appear on 'iCarly'
Nickelodeon's iCarly is adding the First Lady to its slate of guest stars.
Michelle Obama will appear in an upcoming episode of the comedy series, starring Miranda Cosgrove, in order to promote the Joining Forces inititative.
Joining Forces is aimed at increasing awareness and support for military families, said Nickelodeon president Cyma Zarghami to the Associated Press.
In the episode, Carly (Cosgrove) is the daughter of a colonel who is currently serving in the military, so her best friends set up a web chat so she can talk to her dad on his birthday. According to Zarghami, Obama "discovers it and comes to have a chat with them in the most positive way possible."
The episode, which was written by creator Dan Schneider specifically for the First Lady, will likely air in January.
