Watch a Trailer for Bo Burnham’s New MTV Show, Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous

Bo Burnham was a YouTube star before he graduated high school. Now, seven years and a lot of stand-up success later, Burnham is making a show for MTV about a high-school student who'd really like to be a star but is unfortunately talentless. Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous is about a recent high-school graduate using his life savings to start making a reality show about himself, in a desperate attempt to be famous. It's a pretty straightforward satire of basically every other show on MTV. The show premieres on May 2 — by the end of it, we imagine either Bo Burnham or Zach Stone is going to end up famous.
