MTV Entertainment Studios unveils lineup of over 90 new and returning series across Paramount Media Networks and Paramount+
MTV Entertainment Studios has announced a robust slate of more than 90 greenlights and renewals across Paramount Media Networks and Paramount+ including MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, CMT, Smithsonian Channel and Paramount Network.
With half of the top ten series on cable and a slew of #1 hits from scripted to adult animation to reality – MTVE's upcoming series, films and specials tap into themes that are resonating with today's global audiences including family dynamics, love & relationships and social experimentation.
After Yellowstone's record-breaking season four, MTV Entertainment Studios is ramping up scripted in a big way including a bevy of Taylor Sheridan and 101 Studios' projects for both Paramount Network and Paramount+.
On the network side, in addition to season five of Yellowstone, they have the previously announced 6666, about the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and American Tragedy: The Waco Trials, exploring the wide-ranging fallout succeeding the tragic events that took place thirty years ago. On the Paramount+ side will be season two of Mayor of Kingstown that is joined by 1883: The Bass Reeves Story, 1932 (w/t), Tulsa King, Land Man and Lioness.
Building on the success of its adult animation slate and on the heels of celebrating the 25th anniversary of South Park, comes the Andy Samberg-produced comedy series Digman!, Jodie, a spin-off of the iconic Daria franchise with Tracee Ellis Ross in the titular role and both a film and series return of Beavis and Butt-Head.
And, with reality continuing to dominate linear and streaming, MTV and VH1 have several high-profile franchise extensions coming down the pike, such as the wildly popular Shores, which sees two new groups of young people sharing a vacation house together.
First up is Buckhead Shore - "The Beverly Hills of the South" - where long time friends reunite for their annual blowout trip, and Jersey Shore 2.0 (w/t), which chronicles a new generation of share house roommates hitting the same famed beaches and boardwalks along the Atlantic to make new memories all summer long. On VH1, the juggernaut franchises return with more seasons of fan-favorite Love & Hip Hop and Black Ink Crew.
