Bo Burnham Gets Pilot Order from MTV

By

Internet music comedian Bo Burnham has been doing pretty well for himself lately, just coming off a string of sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest. And now MTV has ordered a pilot from him that’ll “be about a kid fresh out of high school who’s pursing the new American dream of being a celebrity without having any talent.” Kind of a ballsy angle, no? If it’s not great, it makes life easy for critics, at least. It’ll also feature music prominently, probably. [via]
