MTV Greenlights New Nicole Byer Scripted Comedy Series

According to Shadow and Act, MTV announced moves to beef up its lineup of female-driven comedies, greenlighting new series “Ladylike” from the creators of the network’s “Girl Code,” and ordering pilots for three scripted comedies, including “Untitled Kaplan/Elfont Pilot,” “Little Darlings,” and a yet-untitled vehicle for comedienne Nicole Byer of “Girl Code.”  “We are excited to be in business with some of the smartest and funniest voices out there and can't wait to see these projects come to life,” said Mina Lefevre, Executive Vice President and Head of Scripted for MTV.  “These unique and provocative comedies are the perfect way for us to expand our existing slate.”  The “Untitled Nicole Byer Project” starring Nicole Byer will portray 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.  Executive Producers include Christian Lander, Avi Gilbert with 3 Arts Entertainment and Nicole Byer will be a consulting producer.
