As music sensation Big Time Rush crosses the U.S.
this summer performing to sold-out audiences and arenas, and with their hit single
“Windows Down” climbing the charts, Nickelodeon has ordered a fourth season of their
self-titled hit comedy series Big Time Rush. Created by Scott Fellows and produced in
partnership with Sony Music, the series chronicles the adventures of four best friends
living the dream in Los Angeles, balancing their newfound fame, fans, music and
girlfriends. Starring Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena and Logan
Henderson, Big Time Rush is slated to commence production on 13 episodes early 2013
in Los Angeles.
The band’s summer anthem “Windows Down,” sparked by their strongest first week
sales to date, is trending to be their biggest hit yet at radio, digital sales providers and
online, with their music video approaching nearly three million views. “Windows
Down” will be Big Time Rush’s third consecutive charted single at Pop radio. The “Big
Time Summer Tour” has the band entertaining fans in 60 cities, making appearances
across the U.S., Canada and South America. Their debut, gold-certified BTR and followup album Elevate, both entered the Billboard charts in the top 15 and currently total over
1.25 million albums sold worldwide and 3.5 million singles in the U.S.
“Our viewers continue to love the stories, music and comedic misadventures of Kendall,
James, Carlos and Logan. Their authentic friendship and brotherhood connects them to
each other and their audience, both on camera and when performing in front of thousands
of screaming fans,” said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and
Development, Nickelodeon Group.
Currently in its third season, Big Time Rush ranks as one of the top ten live-action series
with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14 across all of TV. The series premiere of Big
Time Rush was the highest-rated and most-watched live-action debut among all
