MTV Orders Nicole Byer’s Show and Two Other Comedies
MTV has given series orders to three comedies, including Nicole Byer’s untitled show that was ordered to pilot in September. According to Deadline, the network has greenlit projects from Byer, Deborah Kaplan, Harry Elfont, and Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. Here’s the full rundown of each show:
Untitled Nicole Byer Project – A single-camera scripted comedy centered around the exploits of irreverent comedian Nicole Byer. Byer portrays a young adult who is forced to move in with her sister and four kids in the suburbs after causing a fire in her New York City apartment. Aunt Nicole will offer her own brand of advice to her sister’s kids while trying to get her life back on track.
Untitled Kaplan/Elfont Pilot – From writing team and executive producers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont. Paige and Jordan may be weed dealers, but in their eyes they are entrepreneurs. Their dope delivery app is quickly gaining popularity with foodies, celebrities and – the most particular and crucial consumer – hipsters. This pilot takes a hilarious look at two girls living in LA: desperate to succeed, find a little romance, and keep their clients happy and high – all with the least amount of effort possible.
Little Darlings – Created by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Little Darlings is a dark half-hour comedy about two very unlikely friends taking justice into their own hands and kicking literal ass on their college campus. Jules comes off as the perfect sorority dream girl, but little do her red-cup-toting sisters know, she’s got a completely different agenda come nightfall. Ophelia, your everyday stoner-hacker-hellion, has officially run out of effs to give, and when she discovers Jules may be the masked vigilante exacting justice on campus her interest in college life is re-energized.
