MTV Hopes to Spin Catfish Into a Series


Obviously, the best thing to come out of the Bronx Zoo Cobra's non-escape (so anticlimactic!) was her Twitter account — in fact, she's even hijacked Ryan Seacrest's social-networking presence today. If she keeps it up, maybe she can get onto a new series that MTV is developing: Inspired by (and involving the creative team from) the documentary Catfish, the show would follow people online who aren't actually what they claim to be and chart the consequences of their role-playing. If you've fallen in love with that tweeting cobra, maybe you should get in touch. [Variety]
