Nickelodeon is giving one of its stars the opportunity to go behind-the-camera.
“iCarly” star Nathan Kress will return to the cable channel to direct an episode of Nick’s new series, “Henry Danger.”
“I’m so honored to have been given the opportunity to step behind the camera for such a big project, especially at such a young age,” Kress, 21, told TheWrap exclusively.
“I don’t take the responsibility lightly,” he continued. “I’ve been preparing for over a month and I can’t wait to flex a different creative muscle in the coming week!”
From “iCarly” and “Victorious” creator Dan Schneider and “The ‘Burbs” producer Dana Olsen, “Henry Danger” follows 13-year-old Henry Hart (Jace Norman), a teen who moonlights as a crime-fighting sidekick to Ray aka superhero Captain Man (Cooper Barnes).
Kress will direct the episode titled “Caved In,” in which Henry, his sister Charlotte (Ella Anderson), and Ray’s plans for a day of fun are derailed when friend Jasper (Sean Ryan Fox) accidentally triggers the emergency lockdown mode for Junk-N-Stuff and the Man Cave, trapping everyone inside.
Best known as Freddie Benson on “iCarly,” Kress has also appeared on CBS’s “Hawaii Five-0,” TNT’s “Major Crimes” and web series “Video Game High School.” Kress also made a cameo on the “Henry Danger” episode, titled “Birthday Girl Down.” His film credits include “Into the Storm” and voice roles on movies “Chicken Little” and “Babe: Pig in the City.”
“Henry Danger” was picked up for 20 episodes in March by Nick.
