Jennette McCurdy showed her sporty side last week when she threw out the first pitch for the Toronto Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.
When it comes to sports, figure skating is her favorite.
Just a day later—on May 21—Jennette’s latest project, ‘Between’ premiered on Netflix. The show is about a town that is effected by a disease which has wiped out everyone over the age of 21.
A fun fact about the show, is that it was also filmed in Toronto!
Three best friends are determined to make the most out of their middle school years using an ever-expanding list of challenges as their guide in Nickelodeon’s newest live-action series, 100 Things to Do Before High School,debuting Saturday, June 6, at 8p.m. (ET/PT). The 26-episode series will air regularly on Saturdays at 8p.m. (ET/PT), with each episode available on Nick.com, the Nick App and Nick On Demand one day following its linear TV premiere.
Created by Scott Fellows (Big Time Rush), 100 Things to Do Before High School follows the comedic adventures of 12-year old CJ Martin (Isabela Moner) who always dreamed that high school would be the greatest years of her life. After her older brother warns her that life after middle school is not quite the teenage dream, CJ becomes more committed than ever to strengthen her friendships with her two best friends, Fenwick Frazier (Jaheem Toombs) and Christian “Crispo” Powers (Owen Joyner), before high school ruins their lives forever. Together, they embark on a bucket list of adventures that help them overcome class cliques, terrifying bullies and clueless teachers. For CJ, Fenwick and Crispo growing up means trying everything and taking chances while they still can.
In the series premiere, “Running With the Bears Thing!,” the trio set out to conquer each of their biggest fears, and for CJ that means talking to her 8th grade crush. While she plots the perfect scenario for a chance encounter, Crispo must confront his fear of snakes and help Fenwick face his fear of running through the halls with the Pootatuck Bears basketball team. As CJ, Crispo and Fenwick work to move past their phobias, they realize mastering the things on “The List” is always easier with friends by their side.
