The First Lady
will be on the show to promote Joining Forces, a national initiative that mobilizes support for military families. According to an Associated Press report, the episode, which was written especially for her by "iCarly" creator Dan Schneider
, involves Obama coming to talk to Carly and her two best friends Sam (Jennette McCurdy
) and Freddie (Nathan Kress
) "in the most positive way possible" when they break some rules and set up a web chat so that Carly can speak to her dad, a colonel serving overseas in the military, on his birthday.
