The five boys of the British-Irish pop group that have been making girls swoon will soon have tweens screaming from the comfort of their own living rooms.
One Direction has landed its own Nickelodeon TV show, the network has confirmed via Twitter.
The rumors are true, our live-action slate does include a development project for @onedirection. Welcome to the family!

The boy band, known for their hit "What Makes You Beautiful," got their big break when they came in third on "The X Factor" in the U.K. in 2010. But many fans want the group to stick to music. After the Nickelodeon news hit the web, the hashtag "#1DPleaseDontGoToNick" started cropping up all over Twitter, Us Weekly reported.
The Nickelodeon audience will be well-acquainted with One Direction (or 1D, as they're often referred to) since Niall Horan, 18, Zayn Malik, 19, Liam Payne, 18, Harry Styles, 18, and Louis Tomlinson, 20, will soon appear on "iCarly"" and will be performing at the Kids Choice Awards.
"It's going to be scream-worthy," Paula Kaplan, an executive producer of the Kids' Choice Awards, said of the 1D performance at the KCAs, according to Pop Crush. "We have seen their popularity explode, and we are excited to introduce them to our audience."
