Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – The Nickelodeon hit TV series “The Amanda Show” will be back once again as part of the series spinoff of “All That” for The Splat programming block of the network.
The executive vice president of TeenNick and NickToons , Keith Dawkins, said in a statement that he feels “The Amanda Show” holds up today and that people have a short memory with history. He added, "A woman being funny, leading content, and being like The Carol Burnett Show is not a new idea. We forget about it. Women can lead content. Women can lead the charge."
“The Amanda Show” was aired before the lead role in the series, Amanda Bynes, started to have a meltdown. Before her bizarre and unfortunately troubled times went skyrocketing, Bynes was a big hit in Nickelodeon as a kid comedian.
Some of the most memorable sketches on “The Amanda Show” are “Blockblister ,” “Hillbilly Moment,” and “Moody’s Point.” Bynes played the parts of Penelopy Taynt and Judge Trudy while on the show. She also starred alongside another Nickelodeon star, Drake Bell. The show aired for three years from 1999-2002.
After the series ended, Bynes made it big in the movies “What a Girl Wants” and “She’s the Man.” Her latest acting project was appearing on “Easy A” back in 2010. On the same year, her meltdown began. She has had run-ins with the law since then.
In 2013, Bynes took to Twitter to post a series of bizarre tweets. She also accused her father of physical and mental abuse. On November 2014, she tweeted, “I was diagnosed bi – polar and manic depressive so I'm on medication and I'm seeing my psychologist and psychiatrist weekly so I'm fine :D.”
Bynes, now 30, is said to be finishing the second year of her studies at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.
“The Amanda Show” will begin airing previous episodes by June 10 at 11 P.M.
