MTV is betting on young unproven sensations for their next comedy series : one from newcomer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson called “Little Darlings” and one untitled by Nicole Byer.
The Little Darlings project from Jennifer Kaytin Robinson is a music fueled comedy centering on two girls on a campus, Ophelia & Jules, one of them being… a masked vigilante, whose pathes cross when they not so accidentally kill a rapist together. It delves into the world of fraternities and sororities with dark humor. Update with official logline: College student Ophelia is an edgy, hip young trouble magnet: she works in a vintage record store, sells weed on the side, and is on a first-name basis with Campus Security. Jules is a sweet, small town girl and a member of one of the best sororities on campus, but she has a secret identity as a masked superheroine who dishes out rough justice to those getting away with sexual assault and bullying on campus. When Ophelia learns all about Jules and her clandestine operation, she insists on playing Batgirl to- well, to Batgirl!
Already co-starring in MTV series “Girl Code” since 2013 (where female artists discuss sisterhood that women share), Nicole Byer just got a pilot order for her untitled scripted comedy written by Christian Lander, who already worked on MTV underrated dramedy Underemployed and MTV animated comedy Good Vibes. The single-camera project tells the typical story of an out of money, luck and options, myopically self-serving (!) Nicole who is forced to move in with her sister and her four kids. It is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment.
