Victoria Justice, one of Clevver’s favorite new stars to watch, has signed with manager Larry Rudolph under his ReignDeer Entertainment shingle for music representation. Justice is the star of Nickelodeon’s newest comedy series, “Victorious.” “Victorious” is created by Dan Schneider, he is the guy who brought us shows like “Zoey 101,” “iCarly,” “Drake & Josh,” “The Amanda Show,” “What I Like About You,” “Kenan & Kel”, and “All That.”
“Victorious” follows Tori Vega (Justice) a teen who unexpectedly finds herself navigating life at an elite performing arts high school. Justice will not only get to showcase her comedy and acting skills, but she will be able to show off her vocal abilities, as the series will feature original music performed by Justice and the ensemble cast.
Larry Rudolph is known throughout the music industry and the world as the man, who helped shape and mold the career of one of the world’s biggest Iconic figures of this century, Britney Spears. In over a decade, Rudolph has yet to place his stamp of approval on another solo teen act until now. Rudolph and his Vice President, Adam Leber, have found in Justice all the star qualities that he recognized in Britney so many years ago.
Before arriving in Los Angles five years ago from Hollywood, Florida at age 11, Justice was one of top child/tween models in the business and landed coveted print campaigns for such brands as Guess, Ralph Lauren and Gap to name a few. She wasn’t in LA a mere ten months when she met with the executives at Nickelodeon’s then hit series “Zoey 101” and was instantly cast in a series regular role of Zoey’s roommate “Lola Martinez.”
When Zoey ended in 2007, Dan Schneider and the execs at Nickelodeon knew they had something special in Justice and immediately signed her to a deal. While waiting for “Victorious” to start production, Nick kept Justice busy with a bevy of guest-starring stints on their top rated shows such as, “True Jackson VP,” “The Troop,” “The Naked Brothers Band” and “iCarly. Justice’s “iCarly” episode, iFight Shelby Marks was a ratings bonanza for the already top rated show. In addition, Justice also co-starred in Nickelodeon’s made for TV original movie, “Spectacular!” in early 2009.
