One Direction Set to Star on Nickelodeon Show, Fans Unhappy


One Direction


The Twitter world was flooded with #1DPleaseDontGoToNick when news emerge that the British pop band have signed a deal with the American network.

One Direction will replace Jonas Brothers as the new teen TV stars. The British band, comprised of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik, follow the footsteps of their touring mate Big Time Rush by scoring a TV show on Nickelodeon.

"The rumors are true, our live-action slate does include a development project for @onedirection. Welcome to the family!" Nickelodeon announced on its Twitter account. The band would officially announce the TV project in an upfront in New York this week.

The rumor that One Direction would have an American TV show has been projected for a while. A source told U.K. Daily Star, "We'll be having meetings with One Direction when they come back for the awards. A series is definitely being talked about."

Unfortunately, the idea is not welcomed by their fans. "#1DPleaseDontGoToNick" is trending worldwide on Twitter, mainly because the fans want the band to stick to their singing roots. "I think Simon [Cowell] needs to get on this case, he signed the boys to become famous singers, not actors?" one fan tweeted.
