Other series greenlit by MTV include: “Little Darlings, a dark half-hour comedy about two very unlikely friends taking justice into their own hands on their college campus, created by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson; and an untitled dramedy series from Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont which revolves around 2 would-be weed dealers.
