If you’re a fan of MTV’s non-music related programming, or in other words,if you’re a fan of MTV here’s a look at some new shows they’re currently developing:
There’s a half-hour animated series called “The Awesomes” . . . about a group of lazy superheroes. It’s being written by “Saturday Night Live” star SETH MEYERS.
MTV is also putting together a series based on the MICHAEL J. FOX classic, “Teen Wolf”. The movie if you can believe it . . was released 19 years ago.
There aren’t a lot of details on it yet but MTV says it’ll be a “reinvention of the classic ’80s movie for today’s audience.” That doesn’t sound good. But who knows, maybe it’ll be the next “Buffy”
There’s also a sketch comedy show in the works, starring JAMIE FOXX. There isn’t a title for that yet.
It sounds like it may end up being similar to the old show, “In Living Color”, which Jamie did for three seasons back in the early ’90s.
Also, you know that new HBO show, “Hung” which debuts Sunday) .about a guy who’s, uh, well-endowed??? Well MTV is working on a similar show called “Hard Times”, about an unpopular 15-year-old kid with a gift.
And if you haven’t heard, MTV is producing a spin-off of “The Hills” starring AUDRINA PATRIDGE.
None of these shows have premiere dates yet.
