Jennette McCurdy will soon star in a new drama on Netflix called Between. Fans can’t binge-watch the series, however, as there is a bit of a catch. The survivalist thriller will also be aired on Canada’s City network, as they have the first-window rights to the drama. This means City will air each episode first, and then it will be released to Netflix for airing.
Between is about a town beset by a plague that kills everyone over the age of 21. Jennette McCurdy plays Wiley Day, a pregnant woman who survived the plague and has plans to give her baby up for adoption and leave Pretty Lake–the town in which the drama takes place.
Jennette McCurdy is best known for her role as Sam Puckett on the hit Nickelodeon series Sam & Cat. In addition, she has had roles on Victorious, Zoey 101, True Jackson VP, Malcolm in the Middle, and Lincoln Heights. She also writes, produces, and stars in her own online show called What’s Next for Sarah?

In other Jennette McCurdy news, she has made headlines recently for her supposed feud with Ariana Grande, with whom she starred on Sam & Cat. She insists that things got blown way out of proportion.
“I just feel that, you know Ariana and I were and are extremely close and very like-minded in a lot of different ways and then, sorta as the show dissolved, everybody wanted to find some sort of hidden meaning in our relationship,” McCurdy said recently during an interview with E! News. “Some [people] like drama and I think we butted heads at times but in a very sisterly way. She knows me so well and I know her so well that I think it was unfortunate that things kind of got misconstrued.”
