When Carly's parents were called overseas, Carly went to live with her older brother, Spencer. An eccentric, aspiring artist, he's turned the loft into both a workspace and gallery for his wacky sculptures. Spencer is off-beat and rarely acts his age (he wears light-up socks), but he steps up and acts responsibly when it counts. Plus, he makes a mean spaghetti taco.
Carly Shay led a pretty normal life in Seattle... until she and her friends started their own web show. When "iCarly" becomes an instant hit, Carly and her pals have to balance their newfound success with the problems of everyday life, like fitting in in highschool, dealing with crushes and deciding which flavor to get at the Groovy Smoothie.
With her parents overseas, Carly relies on the help of her best friend/co-star, Sam Puckett, her longtime pal/technical producer, Freddie Benson, and her eccentric older brother/guardian, Spencer, to keep it all together. Sam and Freddie's constant bickering and Spencer's odd habits make for a lot of good material... but is it enough to fill a new show every week?
