MTV Courts the Young, Unemployed, and Fame-Seeking Viewer


MTV has picked up the Bo Burnham pilot they ordered, along with Underemployed, a comedy that head of programming David Janollari describes as “the personification of our ‘life amplified’ mantra for the 18-24s who are coming out of high school and college and have to figure out how to make their dreams come true and their career aspiration fit into today’s tough economic times.” Sounds pretty heavy, MTV. (How many episodes before one of them starts a blog?) (Also their names are Sofia, Daphne, Lou, Miles, and Raviva. Rrrraviva.)
