MTV Greenlights Two New Comedies
CONSPIRACY 101 the series is based on the happenings at a very strange radio show on station WORY, hosted by the equally eccentric Detective Arcane. Arcane is a conspiracy addict who constantly becomes embroiled in the most nefarious schemes to overthrow the world. His teenage intern, Athena, thinks he's a quack, but she reluctantly comes to his aid in order to secure her position at WORY and one day gain the job she craves. Created by Adam Mortimer and Alex Haseltine.
NEVERMORE (working title) - created by Mike Dougherty, this animated horror series probes the inner mind of Ebola, a teenager, who sees strange things in her conservative, Stepford-like small town. Week to week, the audience must determine: is it real or is it just a little insanity?
B-LUV's PLAYERS - six diverse college students form a band and try to make it in the music world led by B-Luv, a "Puff Daddy-like" entrepreneur. Together they experience independence, sexuality and potential fame all for the first time. Created by Phil Beauman (SCARY MOVIE).
HAIRBALLS - created by Doug Lawrence, and produced by Film Roman, HAIRBALLS is a satirical twist on the classic "cat and mouse" cartoons, revealing the dark side of three domestic cats that live together and are desperate to get along while dealing with the daily trials of living the cat lifestyle.
MTV Animation has also closed separate development deals with Glenn Eichler, creator of MTV's current animated hit, DARIA, and Matt Harrigan, the head writer of the popular MTV animated show, CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH. Eichler's yet untitled project is a comedy about students getting through the trials and tribulations of college life.
