A new teen comedy for Nickelodeon starring Drake Bell and Josh Peck. This is a spin off of The Amanda Show, a cancelled Nickelodeon variety show starring comedy actress Amanda Bynes. Drake and Josh were actors on the show.
15-year-old Drake and Josh are schoolmates, but not close friends. Drake views Josh as weird and a bit of a goof. So, imagine Drake's shock when he finds out that this "goof" is about to become his new step-brother and roommate when his mother marries Josh's father.
Drake and Josh get jobs at the mall, one as Santa Claus and the other as his assistant. While working, they meet a less-fortunate girl and makes her a promise that this will be the best christmas ever.
Drake gets a music deal to perform a song for a commercial, but Josh manages to screw it up by signing over creative control. Meanwhile, Helen, without warning, names Mindy assistant manager as she prepares for her wedding, upsetting Josh, who has wanted the job for a long time.
