MTV is amping up its 2015 schedule with two new unscripted series.
First up is Broke A$$ Game Show, a half-hour competition in which random New York City street-walkers are forced into cheap competitions for cold, hard cash. Hosted by David Magidoff (Veronica Mars) and Derek Gaines, Game Show has been ordered for eight 30-minute episodes.
Also on the docket is a docu-series that follows choreographer/singer/dancer/actor/YouTuber Todrick Hall and his troupe of “creative collaborators.” Ordered for eight 30-minute episodes, Todrick will follow Hall’s crew as they “write, choreograph, style, and direct full-scale productions weekly – all while balancing side jobs to pay the bills.”
Hall first rose to fame as a semifinalist on Season 9 of American Idol, and has since made a name for himself with song-and-dance productions including a Virgin Airlines flight-safety video and an eye-popping Glee audition. (See below.)
